Re: Close but no cigar .....

I can do without 1 and 2, but not having a standard physical headphone port is just annoying.

Using Bluetooth as a replacement is crap. A wireless connection isn't as reliable as a wired one, especially when there are forty other people in the same tube carriage also trying to use the bluetooth waveband for their headphones. Having to separately charge your headphones is a faff that I can do without as well.

Plugging in wired headphones to an adapter that fits into the phone's USB port can offer better sound (if the adaptor uses a quality DAC) but its still an additional thing to get lost or broken, which is a consideration in a device that's, well, mobile. It usually means you can't charge the phone at the same time as listening to audio. Overall this isn't progress either.

Newer doesn't necessarily mean better.
