The headphone jack, earpiece speaker, and proximity/ambient light sensors reside on one cable.

Seems oddly familiar...

We applaud the efforts of smartphone manufacturers to move commonly-broken components (such as the headphone jack) to cables/boards separate from the motherboard. But attaching several components on the same cable also increases the overall cost of the cable, thereby increasing the repair cost of just one component.
