Joe, 20 Oct 2022Headphone jack is not so important to most people nowadays ... moreHeadphone jack takes "so much space" that something compact like Zenfone 9 and Xperia 5 iv have it! No excuse for big ones like s22 ultra to omit it. Space arguement is a joke. Why use adapter and occupy/overuse usb port when they can just put a headphone port?

Cameras? Sure it's not the best in Zenfone 9. But if you go for Pixels then remember that tensor is worse than even sd888. You're gonna spend all that money on performance of 2-3 generations behind coupled with poor efficiency and thermal management due to scamsung node. Mi11 ultra is much better camera option but I despise it anyway due to not having headphone jack.
Zenfone 9's main sensor isn't that bad, it's bigger than iPhone 14/plus. GCam will improve things. I wish there was a Zenfone 9 pro with better camera sensors.

    I sold my zenfone 9 after spending a month with it. My previous phone was the s10e. I loved the zenfone tbh, but I had no idea it's not as compact as I expected it to be. The way it's designed makes it feel extremely chunky - it's actually hard to operate it with one hand.

So in that perspective, not having one on a new phone nowadays makes sense as it does take up more space than to just use the USB-C port which is there already. But I can see your point that some people still want the headphone jack but there are work-arounds, like getting an usb-c/aux adapter. Overall, I would not recommend this phone only based on the headphone jack. I would recommend this phone for the compact size and powerful specs. The only "letdown" is the cameras. They are certainly not horrible but not what they should be in that price range. I would otherwise buy this phone for sure. I would rather go with the Pixel 7 even though it's slightly bit larger, I think with time you get used to it anyway.

              Even if Asus doesn't advertise this phone to the way apple/samsung advertise their garbages, we, the conscious consumers need to change that. We must spend our time and effort to recommend this to anyone that posses iphone, samsung or any other brands that abandoned headphone jacks. When anyone asks your advice on what phones to buy then literally say that nothing other than Zenfone 9 is worth buying (if it's within their budget). Send shopping links of Zenfone 9 256gb deals to anyone you know is looking to buy a phone. Do this even if you haven't been able to buy it yet but I assume you'll buy it in future. If you happen to walk by a apple/samsung store and got free time, get into the store and load Zenfone 9 buying page on the display phones. Let their downfall begin in their own stores.
              Otherwise this could be the last great phone with a headphone jack.

                  Dear Asus, please make a Zenfone pro version that has:

                  1. Headphone jack
                  2. MicroSD card
                  3. Bigger camera sensor
                  4. Telephoto lens
                  5. As compact as possible. Of course not possible to make as compact as base Zenfone.

                  We really need such a device. Only option is Xperia 5iv but it lags behind due to old processor. You'll get those Sony customers to your side if you make a Zenfone Pro version with the specs mentioned above.

                        It's a great small phone. I bought it on august, and I am very pleased.

                        The only negative thing is not about the phone but about the apk Youtube wich drains battery even in deep sleep mode. Updating apk or phone don't solve the problem. Youtube is pre-instaled and it's impossible to uninstall, so I decided to disable this apk. Battery consumption was reduced from 2% hour (in sleep mode) to 0.6%.

                        I'm a quite advanced user and I know what I am talking about.
