``Ditching the in-box accessories and using smaller boxes can potentially benefit the environment.``
yeah like releasing basic accessories in SEPARATE PACKAGE, and releasing almost the same phones EVERY YEAR....
Some devices already dont have earphones in the box because its been made for wireless earbuds but not everyone can afford accessories the smartphone market will just get worse and people just may hold on 2 the aged devices rather than get new and having 2 buy everything for it on day one as these companies will make sure you need the latest charger instead of your old 1... There just in it to make more money not save you any
I remember watching a video about SMARTPHONE ERA IS OVER from The painfully Honest Tech from 2.5 years ago, they were now totally right!!!! Smartphones will be never be the same and will get worse but still people buying because if the hype, trend and more.
Another channel for Nigahiga about the iPhone 8 parody back in 2016, they were right too. Soon one by one everyone will imcrease their camera quantity on the back, remove headphone jacks and more?!!!
What Samsung have yet to realize, after ALL these years, is that they're not Apple. They can't do stuff like this and get away with it, for a variety of reasons, but mainly because who cares about Samsung? If their offering doesn't please you, there's 350 other Android devices to choose from. They also have next to nil of an ecosystem (one that matters anyway) to keep their customers locked in.
Only idiots will believe Apple and Samsung's (probable) explanation for ditching in-box accessories to be related to environment conservation and protection. It's clearly a business strategy, so shame on Apple (well they are and always have been shameless anyway) and even bigger shame on Samsung for making public ads against this policy of Apple and then (probably) following the same thing themselves.
samsung always dont have pride :v
dont forget about their exynos between regions, exploding Note 7, overpriced Nope 20 regular, unuseful bixby button, etc
Either its bad or good, samsung copying apple. Removing 3.5mm jack, no radio, soon, they will also remove microsd slot. We really live in a covid mad world.
AnonD-948658, 27 Oct 2020SIM tray isn’t an accessory and neither is battery. Charger and earphones are not accessories too.
Right now, they're mocking Apple for not shipping it... On Facebook, Twitter and all.
After this, if they copy Apple, what reputation will they have left online?
Why the heck do they feel the need to copy Apple's every move?
They are already the top phone manufacturer in the world.
Nothing much is expected from a company which built its entire mobile empire after copying competitors.
I guess my next phone might not be Samsung than.
Or I will just have to get S20 Ultra 2 years from now on contract lol
Imagine buy a phone already but without charger then trying buy the charger but it's out of stock/not available and the seller told you that you have to wait 2 weeks.
So done with Samsung and other Android makers following Apple's path/greed.
Not so happy right now with my S8+ as my first AMOLED display phone. The display not as sharp and clear as my 2013 Nexus 5 phone and it developed unresponsive touch on 15-20% of the display
Okei it Okei. Coz I never charged my Samsung device with Original charger.
A very very LOL for Samsung...
Green tint issue in S10 Lite keep sending regards.
From here market can go in two directions, good or bad
Bad: every company will come with own costly proprietary charging solution
Good: rise of 100 + watt charging 5 minute charges can serve the whole family with one charger, then saparate charger would be kind of worth it
But realistically mix of both looks like will rise, chargers with basic open charging standard will exist, with proprietary device locked high speed charging, for ecosystem locking
Please Samsung, don't loose your self-respect and give in to pure greed like that stupid awful fruit company. Let them have their Zombie horde buyers, Haha! Because I really don't see their logic on buying iPhone 12s without chargers included in the box! AND STILL be more expensive that the previous models. WTF, right? Bottom line is, just be the phone maker that stands with consumers and not against them.
