The omission of the 3.5mm audio jack from many of 2017’s flagship phones is possibly the most contested hardware choice since handset makers chose to leave replaceable batteries behind. For some, it’s a deal breaker, and a way for some manufacturers to differentiate their phones, other consumers just don’t care and have moved on to using wireless headphones. The audio jack would appear to have an unlikely ally, though, in the form of Microsoft who patented a method for somehow fitting a 3.5mm audio jack into a lesser space.
Continuing to tweak their warranty coverage options for their latest smartphones, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google announced that their Preferred Care customers will now benefit from waived deductibles for hardware failure claims. This change comes on the heels of Google extending the warranty from one year to two years on their new Pixel phones in response to several problems buyers are discovering, mostly surrounding display screen issues.
HTC has an event scheduled for November 2nd when it is expected the company will launch at least one new smartphone and may launch two.

It can be tough for any kind of infrastructure to work after getting hit with a natural disaster, and wireless carriers have seriously struggled with this after Puerto Rico was hit with back-to-back hurricanes very recently. That’s put a huge strain on wireless networks in the area, but T-Mobile is using some crafty tricks to speed up the recovery process.
The Essential Phone has evolved more than any recent device I can think of in a short period of time. A consistent flow of software updates have fixed many complaints about the camera and overall performance, and a $200 price cut has taken it from “overpriced” to an amazing deal. The company is now adding an additional feature that users of the Pixel series already enjoy – fingerprint gestures. A patch for the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability is also included in the update.
