    Default Z10 headphone jack

    I am using Z10. I found that when I plug in my headphone, and I use finger to move the jack left and right, I can feel it is a little bit loose. But it doesn't effect the sound quality. When I plug in same headphone on other device, it is very tight. Anyone feel the same? Thanks.

    No. Make sure it's in all the way. There have been other similar threads where the OP didn't have the jack fully seated.

    Who does that? o_0... Mines solid but I'd never put headphones on and wiggle it to check, smartphones contain small parts everywhere.

    I try another four different Z10 from mobile retail store. All have this issue. I just want to make sure is not only my Z10 has this problem. Actually it really doesn't effect any sound quality. So I will leave it as normal. Thanks.

    It may not be a issue then? I'd hope

    I am wondering some people do not find this problem. It is not the loose between headphone and jack. It is feeling that the inside jack is loose from the motherboard. So it is not related to whether I plug in firmly or not. Is there any one can't feel that?

    It's just wear and tear. People here who don't have the effect probably haven't used headphones enough and or put it in their pocket. I am sure that is what caused this.

    I focused on this when I got my phone. Initially it did not wiggle, couple days later it wiggled. I wear skinny jeans too so that didn't help.

    Sound quality not affected. No weird sound when moving it either. It's all good, I hope you have warranty for it :>

    when you tested the headphone jacks of 4 new Z10's in the store were you using your (same) headphones that do this on your Z10?
    If so, do you see where I'm going with this?
    I find it hard to fathom that 4 brand new units have this issue. Not impossible, nothing is but what are the odds?
    Curious, what model of headphones are you using?

    No matter what brand if headphone, they are the same. As I said, it us not the wiggle between headphone and jack, it is the wiggle between the jack and the motherboard. You can try your Z10
    You will know what I mention. Thanks.

    Finally there are more people know what I mean about the wiggle between the headphone jack and motherboard. Although it doesn't effect any sound quality, when every time I wiggle it, it feels like inside part is broken. By the way, I can confirm all Z10 are the same. I will consider as normal and try to get used to it. Thanks all of you.
