no headphone jack, no purchase

There is really no reason to have removed the headphone jack besides spite for customers and wanting to force more expensive options onto people, while limiting their choices and freedom to use their current, maybe really nice, headphones.

Half-baked phone.

I think the hardware portion of this review shows it the best.
