Best Android Phones With a Headphone Jack Android Central 2020
It isn't a given that your next Android phone will have a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. Many of the best and most desirable phones available today just don't offer the port, despite being one of the most-requested features from smartphone buyers. Thankfully, some companies have heard the call and kept the headphone jack around. These are the best phones you can get that still have one.
- Feature-packed: Samsung Galaxy S10+
- Great audio quality: LG G8
- Value pick: Nokia 7.1
- On a budget: Moto G7
- Superb camera: Google Pixel 3a XL
- With a keyboard: BlackBerry KEY2
Samsung keeps carrying the torch with consumer-friendly features like a headphone jack. The S10+ isn't just about that, though: everything else this phone offers will appeal to just about everyone, with an amazing display, top-end specs, infinite capabilities and customizable software.
The G8 continues LG's commitment to offering great audio quality, both with speakers and its headphone jacks. Just like the models before it, the G8 has a great DAC supporting its headphone jack for higher-end audio quality that you'll be able to appreciate.
Nokia's making great phones that check all of the boxes in terms of daily experience and features and doing so at a fantastic price. It keeps the headphone jack and fills out the rest of the experience with components and specs far better than you'd expect for a sub-$400 phone.
The Moto G7 offers great performance, features and capabilities for a $300 device. You get more than you expect in every area, down to little offerings like a headphone jack. The software experience is clean and simple, and you'll be impressed by what this thing can do while saving you hundreds.
The Pixel 3 XL doesn't have a headphone jack, but its mid-range counterpart actually does. That's a big deal, because some people need a headphone jack but don't want to lose out on that industry-leading Pixel camera. With the 3a XL, you get both — and the rest of the phone is solid considering the sub-$500 price.
If you live in a wireless world and a headphone jack isn't on your must-have list, there are tons of other great phones that eschew the 3.5mm, like the Pixel 3 XL, but have many other redeeming qualities.
