They will remove the free cases next. Then the boxes will be replaced with simpler packaging. Wrapping paper maybe. Selling purely phone only. I mean, I don't mind if they sell budget phone like this.
AnonD-867696, 08 Jul 2020First notches and removing headphone jack then removing charger in the box? I really hate appl... moreWhy blame Apple for this tho? Other companies don't need to follow every step of Apple. Sure the started many of these bad things but it's not like Apple is holding a gun against Samsung forcing them
Next step: Remove the phone and sell packaging only.
Who makes these stupid decisions, seriously....
I think a good compromise would be to give the user the option of including a conventional fast-charger at little extra cost (the cost should be close to the production cost, not more than 15 Euros). Then the user can decide whether the charger is necessary or whether the user has enough chargers at home, and does not need an additional charger.
Chargers do create waste, however, some users really need them. This might strike a good balance.
Think dropping the charger is a great idea. It will keep phone prices down.
If I want a charger I can buy it myself, I do not need Samsung or Apple to force me to pay for one in the box.
Why should I have to be forced to buy something from them when I do not need it and if I did would rather chose and pay for a charger myself?
Good move Samsung.
This isn't a wise move from Samsung if they implemented the plan next year... 🙄😓
Simple...dont buy their products....don consume them...dont support those companiess
I'm not going to buy Samsung phones as my next phone anyway, so it's alright, but if Apple/Samsung does this, everyone will follow...
Hate this notch/no headphone jack/no charger trend.
But we the customers are the stupid ones, because we buy it anyway.
Same with their high greedy prices...
Please ban this shitttyyyy thinking folks.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2020If Apple really does that, chinese brands will as well. LMFAO Samsung IS Korean not chinese
Rk100, 08 Jul 2020Then why is there so much controversy with apple doing it? The amount of android users hating/... moreBecause it has been done in the past and the practice stopped, because its bad for business. Phones being shipped without power adapters, proprietary charge / data ports, dongles for headphones are all old practices from well before the first iphone launched. We have seen this all before so can't believe why any company would be daft enough to repeat this history.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2020Switch to Xiaomi and enjoy. Don't fool yourself and don't overpay your hard earned money.LOL I agree with you , I will buy the mi 9 very soon
After buying its super overpriced smartphone, people lured again to buy its original charger, and then its original airpods/galaxy buds.
Last time samsung sell S20+ with price like S20 ultra , just because the color is purple and BTS edition.
Hahaha those fanatics better they buy the ultra one than fooled with colors
I'm gonna say it straight up. A charger is NOT an optional accessory. It is a COMPULSORY accessory to use the phone. Thus every OEM should be REQUIRED to provide this NECESSARY accessory alongside their devices, IRREGARDLESS of the price of the device.
In case they actually go forth with this highly controversial move, we as consumers should BOYCOTT their products (whether the brand be Apple, Samsung, or ANY OTHER).
If us consumers won't DEMAND to get our money's worth, then these greedy companies will keep trying to scam us to the extreme ends. I hope most of you will find reason in my words.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2020The Chinese are beating the shit out of Samsung in every market but these guys will not change... moreSamsung are the no. 1
It seems like samsung are still number 1, not 2.
BegineR, 08 Jul 2020Who knows
But still i thin it is a bad idea, esp for flagahip phones, not only Samsung, or Ap... moreWe are in 2020, it sould be, more stuff in the box, not only a phone, or charger, or earphones, but they sould put in the box for example, wireless charger, or earhphones, or case, or smartwatch, or at least Band, and not remove essential stuff, like charger. And about Samaung vs Apple, Apple for year put in the box like 1A charger, so it will be ease to replace with another, but Samsung (or from any other), fast charger, original fast charger 25, 30, 45, 65w, is in a lot places hard to find, also they cost extra money, and for what?
Motorola (Google) at least did that in a 150$ phone, not in 950$ phone. :D
Is this a joke played by Apple and Samsung and whoever is contemplating to follow this or what? A mobile phone shipped without charger what the heck is the problem I am unable to follow.
AirY, 08 Jul 2020Nowday every compny doing too much. Tbey will remove charher on the name of cost cutting but m... moreDo you also hate Samsung as well for doing this? Seems a bit biased when there is also Samsung doing the same thing but you only hate Apple. It is also not for cost, they say it's for the environment (''According to estimates, old chargers generate more than 51,000 tonnes of electronic waste per year''), but who knows.
