    Just bought a cellphone that doesn't come with a headphone jack. It did come with USB C to 3.5 headphone jack cable but I'm looking to get a couple other ones in case the original one breaks. The phone is a Moto Z3 Play. I went on Amazon but most of them have 3 out of 5 stars and it seems like there are a lot of crappy ones out there. What's a good name brand for a USB C to 3.5 headphone cable?

    These tend to be a bit flakey (proprietary). No guarantee that a "generic" USB-C to minijack will work at all. Just saying (from an HTC owner with the same stupidity).

    Can a bunch of us get together and boycott all phones without a headphone jack?

    Of course, I'd love to boycott all phones without:

    1. Headphone jack
    2. Replaceable battery
    3. SD card expansion
    4. IR Blaster
    5. FM Tuner

    But that means we'd have to boycott all phone nowadays. Wish it was still the good ole days of phones, back when they were packed with features.

    Oh, and boycott all phones with a gross aspect ratio (not 16:9 or 16:10). Oh, and if it costs $200 more for a tiny screen with more resolution than my computer.... that's just stupid.
