I hate that headphone jack is being phased out of products slowly. Cables in general are just far more reliable than most wireless connections, and the fact that we're attempting to move away from them is sad. Wireless is so dependent on so many factors. It's never going to be as reliable as a wired connection and the fact that phones feel the need to get infinitely thinner just kinda sucks. I don't care how THIN my phone is. I want to use it for stuff, and USB-C is not a "one-size-fits-all" solution. The minute they put 2 ports on a flagship phone I'll finally shut up.

agree, i don't want a 'thin', 'sleek', 'sexy', emaciated phone. i want a phone capable of inflicting lethal blunt force trauma.

i used to like wired mouse more than wireless mouse, but now i prefer wireless mouse, because it's more convenient to carry and less potential for mechanical failure.

this image uses deadbug prototyping; recall reading about for the first time in the unofficial discord

edit: this phone support USB-Host, serial communication and exposes pins to interface with it:
