    the biggest advantage OnePlus 5 and 5T has is the headphone jack.

    Many companies charge for a hardware which has been there as an in-built feature for years.

    Kudos to OnePlus for this ...... request you to bring IR BLASTER formthe future mobiles though I may not own it....., it will be beneficial to the other end users :)

    Thank you :)

    I wish jack didn't have same problem as other phones. Some headphones with remote controls trigger google voice recognition all over again stopping music :( It concerns more than OP phones, I heard LG and HTC also have google recognition triggering problem. I tried lots of things to prevent that from happening, google settings don't solve shit, even taking microphone permission off google doesn't help and only installing 3th party app to completly disable remote control somewhat solves the issue but I'm not sure yet it helps 100% still testing. That's pretty bad, I cant use remote control at all. Another problem is pressing forward/reverse itself without even touching remote control. It may be caused by jack plug not going fully inside the socket? Maybe signal stutters on a cable? Even if, it shouldn't recognize it as pressing a button... I don't know but the problem exists. And I have pretty high quality headphones that works fine with a computer but not really with OP5T. I'll keep testing it for a while with remote control forced to disable but definitely somewhat disappointing. Regular headphones without remote control works fine.

    For the record taking away microphone persmission for google, disabling "Ok google" feature AND A MUST: installing headset button controller app and disabling start/pause/forward/reverse does the trick. No more stopping music, I've been walking around town for some time and problem's solved. A con is I can only use remote for Volume+/Volume- now. I think they should implement remote control config in OxygenOS audio settings.

    Yess.. sir.. you are correct !!

    OnePlus need to enhance technology ..!!
    3.5mm jack is about more than 7 years old ...now it's time to update by removing 3.5mm jack ...!!

    You can give feature like Apple ...TYPE C port can used to connect wired headphones/headset ...!!

    Oneplus CEO wants User opinion - it's very impressive ..
    I'm happy to be a part of OnePlus community [e]1f60a[/e][e]1f60a[/e]

    Thank you sir pete

    I agree keeping the headphone jack is very important. In addition I would like to provide additional reasons why headphone jack is important feature for me:

    1) Myself and many other users I know use wired headphones on a daily basis for 1) talking on the phone (mic/headphone), and 2) Using with our laptops/desktop PCs. My avg mic/headphone use in entire day is almost 6-8 hrs continuously. I have not come across any wireless headphones where I did NOT have to worry about a) charging the battery and b) sound quality for the mic.

    2) Seamless integration with other technology. I use one mic/headphone for both my phone and my laptop. I constantly have to connect/disconnect my headphone between devices due to my work scenario where I am constantly moving around. Wired headphones have provided be the fastest and smoothest interface to connect/disconnect my headphones between devices without having to worry about using any special dongles.

    Headphone jack is the primary reason I will be switching to OnePlus 6 instead of buying iPhone X.

    Point taken, but I still think that the audio tuning option should also be given to the wireless headphone. Maybe the trigger should be in the Bleutooth switch.

    That's a very smart move, and it's also because you prioritize the users that I'm now a proud user of a Oneplus phone.
    The fact that you listen to your community, even going backward if that's what the user needs...
    All your improvements, customizations, and decisions are common sense.
    Just keep it that way ! I've never seen users that happy with their phones.
    And I didn't think I would be that much too !
    Your OS, tweaks, the fact that you're really fast in development, even getting Pie on older phones...
    You guys are amazing !
    First I thought the phone was too big, but what can you get with an AMOLED + Jack and great battery life nowadays...
    Op 5/5T and 6...
    Love you Oneplus !

    Oneplus 5T is an awesome phone, can't find any faults with it except that there should've been expandable storage. 64 GB is reasonable storage but I'm always worried about not exceeding more than 50 GB which might hinder the device's smooth performance.

    It looks like it will have the water drop notch.
    Expandable storage isn't going to happen on any OnePlus device.
