Thankfully, some companies have heard the call and kept the headphone jack around. These are the best phones you can get that still have one.

Several months into its life it's starting to come way down in price, which makes it extra enticing. This is still a flagship-level phone, but now it's not priced like one.

Nokia's making great phones that check all of the boxes in terms of daily experience and features and doing so at a fantastic price. It keeps the headphone jack and fills out the rest of the experience with components and specs far better than you'd expect for a sub-$400 phone.
