If there's one smartphone trend I detest, its the increasing lack of headphone jacks -- especially on flagship models. Perhaps its because I fear change. Or because relying on wireless headphones sucks. Either way, I'm not into it, and I know a lot of you aren't either.

So I thought I'd do you all a solid and list of all the phones that came out in Australia this year that still sport the beloved headphone jack. You're welcome.

Look, I’m not going to say OnePlus is being greedy by axing the headphone jack on the upcoming OnePlus 6T. OnePlus is a company, and companies need to make money, or else they go away. But to say that the reason behind switching to wireless audio on the OP6T was largely down to “waiting for the right time” doesn’t exactly sit right, either.

In an age where the humble 3.5mm aux jack is fast disappearing from many of the most expensive and premium phones, OnePlus is taking a stand. The next phone that the company is teasing, the OnePlus 5T, will have a headphone jack -- at least for the time being.

We may have lost our beloved headphone jack, but it's human nature to find an iota of hope in even the worst tragedies. Thanks to a host of different technological innovations and the beautiful creativity of the human brain, we can express those small, but mighty sentiments of hope using the power of memes. As it turns out, Apple's complex system that allows you to charge your phone while plugging in your headphones is the perfect metaphor for the complex nature of human sexuality, love, and desire.
