Samsung and Apple no longer give you a charger with the Samsung galaxy S21 / S21 Ultra and Apple iPhone 12 / 12 Pro / 12 Pro Max - But is this ACTUALLY just to save the environment? To see what I got by buying the strangest phones on the internet:

    • This is soooo messed up. 1000€ phone and no quick charger that costs 50€ separately! I give my money to who is the least "dishonest". You remember when Apple was like "there is no space for a jack" Then someone showed that is wasn't true..... YT channel "Strange Parts" Same here. It's called up-selling (when you are supposed to get it for free) Thanks for this video. hope you get many likes. #solobyhjm etsy

  • It's amazing how companies can now cheap out on their customers and get praised for it. This is of course only about money. These companies couldn't care less about the environment. Apple is the company that wants you to buy a new computer when a $5 part in it breaks.

  • Why do not companis deliver with the box an adaptor for the jack port like in the black shark2

  • Manufacturers should implement both - sell the slim box for those who only need a phone at a lower price and have an optional "full package" with all accessories inside.

  • Mi 11 do get a charger (both Chinese and International verion)... Well, in a separate packaging... But they do use less cardboard with separate packages than a combined package and do get shipped together, so maybe you can say they are actually good for the environment, I guess... Although Xiaomi do include a charger in the last, they were actually testing if the consumers would accept the "no charger" BS, and the result is a big NO, so they added the charger back. This is not a good sign even though the outcome is good. And talking about Apple... And their anti-repair thingy... I can't see how "throwing away a phone with broken charging port and buy a new one instead of repairing it" can be anywhere near environment friendly. I can only see money and profit from Apple's behavior.

  • They are not doing it for the environment if they are not passing the cost saving to the customers. So the company makes more profit and gets carbon points as well. On our money.

  • A good video but hopefully you also realize thats not the reason for their advertisements as such. Companies are moving towards profitability and resort to marginal fraud in their advertisement of products. The primary reason they are removing accessories is because they (can) make the most profits out of accessories. It may sound unbelievable seeing as people switch mobile phones quite often which may seem as the money maker for companies but here's the reason as to why this happened: 1. Companies decided on accessories profitability 2. 3rd parties decided to benefit by making custom accessories 3. Companies now need to protect their products by introducing smart check ICUs in their devices (leading to more costs) and dedicated service centers to service smart devices 4. Another profit making step albeit a bit more costly is to make newer (marginally) better phones and introduce them at the same or higher cost. This would ensure the older phones lose their value and with the exchange program, the companies profit by reusing old phone materials. The last step is costly since making a new phone would mean assembling different components from several different manufactures for ONE product as well as acquiring more material for it. Not to mention recycle costs for old phone material

  • The real reason they did was probably to 'look' eco-friendly in their own annual reports. They obviously don't give a shit about the planet. If they did they would never do planned obsolescence. I also think Apple dropped their charger because the EU demanded them to use USB C like everyone else. Instead of doing that, like a kid throwing a tantrum, they dropped the charger altogether.

  • Everything that is democrat/liberal (eco) has the opposite affect as it's supposed to. Welfare is supposed to help people. Real affect? It keeps people trapped in poverty while relying on other people (taxpayers). The Toyota Prius was supposed to be a "green" car. The reality? After being sent halfway around the world just to be built, it turned out to be just as "green" to buy and drive a Range Rover. Now, with companies saying they're being "green" with their packaging, excluding chargers and earphones, it doesn't even make me raise an eyebrow to hear that in fact, the packaging being wasted per product is three to four times what it used to be. As is the way of the ecomentalists.

  • When they put a charger in the pack you gonna pay it, they dont give it for free, it has a cost. So when they dont put one you pay less when buying the phone and if you really need one because you dont have one from a previous phone you just go and buy one. In other words you save money for something you may not need. I think we all have somewhere a spot full of chargers we dont use. Its like the set of plastic fork spoon and knife they put on a take away meal which you throw away because you gonna eat it at home using your own metal fork.

  • It's all about the up-sell. Also you missed the most important point, there are so many charging options now from wired fast charging, to mag safe, to qi, to just plain old regular. Its wasteful in the sense that includng a standard brick in the box IS wasteful, if you're then going to buy a magsafe for instane. Then you're doubling e-waste as you have a brick you're not going to use. It's better to decouple handset and brick and even cables and headphones. Buy what you need.

  • The real reason I believe APPLE 🍎 got rid of the charger is because it was CRAP!!! Their customers were complaining about the crap adapter they have with every single phone um even up to this date. iPhone users were already buying a new charger or using a charger they had for there iPad. Samsung needs to stay with their own. They followed apple with no sd card slot and no removable battery. Thank God they brought back the card slot unfortunately not the battery door. But to say the least people like Samsung for the bells and whistles and they upgrade there customers all the way around and give the full experience of using your phone.
