A comprehensive list of Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0-compatible mobile devices [Update]

Back in September, Qualcomm announced that devices armed with their new generation of processors – flag-shipped by the Snapdragon 820 – would be capable of even faster and more efficient charging speeds with Quick Charge 3.0.

If you aren't interested in all the problems associated with Bluetooth audio, you're pretty much forced into the donglelife. But Essential just launched two new pairs of USB Type-C powered headphones, including the Earphones HD. Although the HDs aren't bad, for $100 it's tough to recommend them unless you absolutely can't use a dongle.

Libratone Q Adapt USB-C earphones review: Pricey, but for good reason

It's sad, but the headphone jack is being included on fewer and fewer phones every year.
