The Pixel 5a is a really good phone. It also happens to have a headphone jack.

Google really wants you to know this fact. I present to you the most passionate description of a 3.5mm orifice you’ll see today:

And I love every second of it. Strong Apple vibes. Can we get this Jony Ive impersonator to do every Pixel ad? Thanks.

That said, considering the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro probably won’t come with a headphone jack, this feels just a little ironic. But hey, marketing departments have gotta do their jobs.
