    For those who voted for it on the top? I have to ask why? The bottom position is my preference for the following reasons. I put my phone in my pocket with the top facing down. That way when I pull it out it's already in the correct position in my hand. This way the headphones don't get bent.

    The other is for car use. I use the aux jack & charger on bottom & headphone jack on top creates for some wire hell.

    I guess your comment will have to suffice for that. I didn't include it lol.

    On the top is always better for me. I have the phone downwards so then the headphones should come up.

    I prefer top, because that's just how i put it in my pocket, but it's not a big deal to me either way as I'm slowly moving to all bluetooth headphones anyway.

  • I actually prefer it being on the top because of how I put the phone in my pocket.  Really though it doesn't matter because I would just get used to using it wherever it's at.  I've used phones with the jack on bottom and it's all about the same to me, just a matter of adjusting.

    i know this seems to be a old Poll but i prefer the Headphone jack to be located where the USB port is located. so in the case of the Axon 7 or any axon out there is at the Bottom.

  • The bottom is also great for when you are carrying it around your neck with a lanyard type carrier.  You latch the phone hanging upside down so you can just lift it up and use it without taking it off your neck.

    I don't understand such posts... It's there, won't move, so what's the point?

    What's going to be the next post? Do you like the A7 color? Do you like the name Axon? Do you prefer your meat rare or...?

    I use a dock at my office so having the headphone on the bottom would not work.

    Thanks for recognizing what I felt like was obvious. Option has been added.

  • Headphone jack on top is more convenient for those of us who use a charging base to hold the phone.

  • harmtan2harmtan2 United StatesPosts: 147 ✭✭✭✭

    I can under that for sure. One day I'll get Bluetooth for my car and then I won't care as much. Rift now am aux jack is my only option. Which makes for cable hell when I need a charge.
