No need for a lengthy introduction. Here are the top five smartphones that still feature the headphone jack in 2021, even if major brands removed it from their flagships.
Samsung Galaxy A71 5G
According to Lifehacker, the South Korean phone maker still introduces new smartphones that feature a headphone jack. However, Samsung only includes it on their mid-range devices. The last flagship that carries the 3.5mm port was the Galaxy S10.
One of the new Galaxy phones that still carry the jack is the A71 5G, which does not disappoint with its large 6.7 inch OLED display powered by a 4,500 mAh battery.
Although, it is worth noting that this mid-range phone is not as powerful enough as flagship devices.
Sony Xperia 1 III
If you're looking for a flagship smartphone that still has the jack exclusively meant for your headphones, the Sony Xperia 1 III will not disappoint.
The Sony flagship flaunts a 6.5 inch OLED display that supports 4K HDR and up to 120Hz.
Meanwhile, it is powered by a Snapdragon 888 SoC and a 4,500 mAh battery. Not to mention that it even supports a 5G connection and includes an expandable storage option.
However, here's is the catch--its price tag is in the heftier range to the tune of $1,299.99. That's how much you'll need to spare to get the long-lost headphone jack on a powerful smartphone.
ROG Phone 5
But ASUS's ROG Phone 5 lets you cut on the price tag while still sporting impressive specs, plus the headphone jack.
The Republic of Gamers' take on a gaming smartphone is packed with power, with its Snapdragon 888 and a 6,000 mAh juice for uninterrupted fun.
What's more, it also boasts an impressive OLED display that can achieve up to 144 Hz as well as support HDR.
Also, its shooting features are not neglected as well, with a 64-megapixel primary camera and an 8K video recording capability. The Phone 5 is now selling at $680.
Motorola Moto G Power (2021)
As per GSMArena, Motorola's budget-friendly smartphone still features the 3.5mm jack even if it debuted last January 8.
The Moto G Power lacks some flagship power, but it still packs an impressively huge battery of up to 5,000 mAh.
On top of that, the Motorola device flaunts a 6.6 inches IPS LCD. Well, admittedly, these are not the most impressive specs out there, but its $179 price justifies it.
Google Pixel 5a
Lastly, Google recently launched its mid-range phone, the Pixel 5a 5G, and it still joins that list of devices with jacks.
The budget-friendly version of the Pixel 5 adds something that it failed to provide--the headphone port.
The Pixel 5a carries a price tag of $449, giving users a Snapdragon 765G and the biggest battery of any pixel yet at 4680 mAh.
It is to note that Google brought the IP67 water and dust resistance to the midrange device even if other counterparts leave this behind.
