I guess I am aging out of the mobile phone game because my requirements for what a phone is and does have stabilized. It must have a headphone jack and a user serviceable battery. It must be able to do navigation, check email, text, and phone calls. It must also be able to take a beating and continue working. That's all I truly need. If that means that the "flagship" phones of certain vendors are no longer usable to me for those reasons, so be it.

I already find it irritating that I have to keep a wireless leash in my pocket to begin with, why make it even more frustrating than it already is.

Add "it must have a SD card slot" and I totally agree.

Google phones may be following the trends set by apple marketing, but not all manufacturers are. I refuse to buy a phone without a headphone jack as well, and quite enjoy the dac capabilities built into my current device.

I never lost a headphone jack. In fact my LG V30 has a nice built-in DAC along with a headphone jack. Never owned Apple anything and never will.

You're going to need a new phone at some point, and it isn't just Apple. Do you think Google phones have a headphone jack? If so, I have some bad news for you...
