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.

Superb camera: Google Pixel 3a XL

The Pixel 3 XL doesn't have a headphone jack, but its mid-range counterpart actually does.

With the 3a XL, you get both — and the rest of the phone is solid considering the sub-$500 price.

When you have to have a headphone jack, there are still several amazing choices. Pick up a Galaxy S10+ or LG G8 for an overall high-end phone experience that still offers that necessary audio port.

If you need to save some money with your next phone purchase, a Nokia 7.1 or Moto G7 will get the job done and let you keep plugging in those headphones.

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.
