According to him removing the headphone jack from the Razer Phone allowed the company to make a couple of adjustments to the phone that would not have been possible otherwise.

By removing the headphone jack the Razer Phone is able to have a bigger battery. The difference made was of 500mAh. There were also some improvements to thermals and sound as well whether you are using wireless headphones or using USB.
