2006 Called, It Wants Its Pop-Port Back!

This silliness was part of what I was glad to see go when phones began to come with separate headphone jacks. The Nokia Pop-Port was an example of what needed to go away. Sony-Ericsson had their own proprietary multi-purpose port. Now we see the audio output and electrical input recombined. It didn't make sense in 2006, it doesn't make sense now.

Missing the point

Dongles already exist. That's not the issue. The issues are:

Having to buy and carry around another thing to connect, which can be lost and/or damage.

or

The alternate is to replace a perfectly good set of headphones you already have

or

Deal with the quality drop and/or battery drain issues with Bluetooth

AND

Having to use the USB port for the headphones means not being able to charge the phone

Or have a headphone port with DAC built into the phone

I really cannot see myself buying a phone without a headphone port, and if anything, having a decent DAC is a feature I'd value.
