    Haven't you seen all the reports that it does? but no one have convincingly proven that it actually does so.

    I saw it and most of those clearly shows that they have dropped their phone and blaming Oneplus for it so they can get a replacement. Glass is glass whatever gorilla glass version it is. You should be aware and keep it safe as you can

    Yes they're careless and they drop or bend their phones in tight pockets and they're complaining that the glass breaks by itself lol

    I am very disappointed to read this rumor through the websites. OnePlus was one of the few companies that were holding the headphone jack and it was for this reason that I chose the brand.

    I am an audiophile and for me it makes no sense to have wireless headphones as they are expensive and do not deliver the same quality as a wired headphones.

    - Bluetooth / wireless technology is expensive and very expensive the headphone. Note that there are wired and wireless models and see the difference in value with the same company model.

    - Bluetooth technology degrades audio quality compared to wiring.

    - Bluetooth uses more battery life.

    In addition it has the possibility of connect the headphone to USB-C, but there are disadvantages to this.

    - When using USB-C, you will disable the DAC (digital to analog converter) of the phone. You will get to use the DAC inside the cable that plugs into the USB-C which obviously has a high probability of having inferior quality compared to the DAC used in the cell phone.

    - Maybe many will have to use adapters to plug in their headphones, and this bothers in terms of portability in addition to being fragile.

    Sooo sad...no more headphone jack, no more customer of One Plus, sorry : I don't care about other features while the "nominal" feature of my smartphone is to look at video (youtube, twitch...) while I can still charge it through USB-C connector. I won't use bluetooth as it is too dangerous on the long term for the brain, so sorry... Hope other smartphone constructors will understand headphone jack is NOT optional for many users...
