5 Latest Phones with an Actual Headphone Jack (in Singapore) 



In 2016, Apple iPhone did away with an actual headphone jack. While some people were totally ok with it and reported that they were already using Bluetooth headphones anyway, most others were really annoyed. 

Usually, it’s those people who listen to music a lot and don’t want to pay for additional bluetooth headphones. And the thing about Bluetooth headphones – you have to charge them too. Getting a lightning port adaptor to get around the issue is one alternative. But it’s still an extra step. 

If you belong to the ‘annoyed’ camp, and are looking to dump the iPhone for a good phone with an actual headphone jack, good news – there are phones out there that still allow you to plug in your AUX cables!
