    the day they arrived and sold out in less then a day. I mean go to the website now. you can't even purchase them. they have been sold out since release. You have to practically have to sit there and wait for them to be in stock to purchase them. Yet they want to sell more? makes alot of sense.

    There's confirmed to be a new version released along side the 6T. I'm assuming some sort of manufacturering limitations was the cause for such low stock. Regardless, I'm not even using their headset I got myself a, decent pair since I didn't want to wait for these. Soon enough the few other manufacturers in the flagship range will follow suit

    Oneplus have a long history of taking useful features away to save a buck, even when it's against customer wishes and common sense.
    1. Nfc in the op2, had to bring it back in the op3
    2. OIS in the Op5, back in the op6
    3. Telephoto lens on 2nd camera on the op5t
    4. 3.5mm headphone jack on the op6t

    Clearly oneplus does not listen to customer and at the end of the day, only care about making a few extra bucks.

    Agreed. Biggest reason I bought a OP6 over a Pixel or Essential Phone is because it has a headphone jack. I don't currently own any Bluetooth headphones. If the justification for taking out the jack is because over 50% of OP owners have Bluetooth headphones, that's bad reasoning. (Better reasoning would be: fewer than 10% of users ever use wired headphones or aux ports). Maybe OP has moved into the mainstream enough that this decision won't significantly impact their bottom line, but it will certainly alienate a lot of their core fans and change who the company is at its core.

    It reminds me the old days of OPO - the long wait to win an invite! One Plus has prevailed because of the community - their unique ways of publicity through the forum. And making some features unavailable also was part of it's startegy to remain under spotlight.

    Now, it can afford other conventional ways of marketing, relevance of the forum has diminished quite naturally.

    So, not surprised at all....

    This is not the apple community, but a dongel for 50 bucks.

    Wow this is really too bad. I abandoned the Pixel lineup for the OnePlus lineup all because of headphone jacks. Guess its time to look for another phone manufacturer

    There was a big outcry when the OP2 was announced with a USB C port instead of micro. OnePlus is still here.

    you can ever argue with thick headed OnePlus fanboys.and they are here in plenty.
    the mods are.working for free and they will praise this company always.
    Like farming and reporting is rampant here by these people. Don't know what is there to gain by doing it.
    back to the topic - a few months back Carl was praising the 3.5 mm jack,now he talks against it.
    this is a company which shows hypocrisy.
    even after all these meets I cannot find any upgrades to the camera.
    this community thing is just a hogwash...that's all

    i felt previously choosing op6 is wrong choice should wait until the 6t lunch. when I heard in display finger print and water drop notch I felt that I made s wrong choice, when I read the news about removing headphone jack I feel to much happy that I made a right choice.

    The OP6 already has a jack.

    The 6T or 7 or whatever comes next wont.

    Also you can choose to buy a better phone or use one of the stupid dongles they'll provide in the box.

    In India atleast there would be huge drop in sales of one plus 6T just like MiA2 which removed headphone jack just to copy apple
    Here is MiA2 sales on Amazon India
    https://www.amazon.in/Mi-A2-Black-64GB/dp/B077PW9VBW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1537168725&sr=8-1&keywords=mi a2

    Here is one plus 6 sales on Amazon
    https://www.amazon.in/OnePlus-Mirror-Black-64GB-memory/dp/B0756Z43QS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1537169011&sr=8-1&keywords=oneplus 6

    You can clearly see only 74 units of MiA2 has been sold till now

    I am sure they will again bring back headphone jack in one plus 7 after failing badly in sales for one plus 6T

    The dongle is the #1 selling product for Apple you know. Looks like more companies want to make some hard cash :/
    I'm definitely a wireless user but I'm also a lazy person who forgets charging my headphones. It sucks but no other company offers such a great software experience; period, gonna stick with OnePlus :)

    Oneplus removed NFC on the OP2 for money reason, the outcry was bad enough that they had to re-add it on the OP3. Just wait till the sale of the OP6T bomb, Oneplus will add the headphone jack back.
