you are SAMSUNG. Why FOLLOW apple?
Since apple do not provide ear piece, you should include wireless ear piece.
Since apple do not provide charger, you should include wireless charger.
That make SAMSUMG upper class than apple.
I really want this to come bite them all in the A.
Apple for the most part got the sheeple defence force strong in the US of A who will still buy Apple products no matter how much they get bent over a barrel. But Android brands who go down this path must be punished like never before.
If you settle for these brands forcefully taking away essential components, which chargers absolutely ARE, instead of offering a rebate or option to forgo on chargers to gain some discount / coupon and NOT taking away for BS reasoning like " save environment brah" to save the company a few bucks and to add to profit margins...we aren't far away from when OEMs will start selling us phone pieces in overpriced parts one piece at a time.
I wish I was just joking, but Google's Project Ara has laid the groundwork. All that's required is for Apple to pick it up and start selling overpriced parts for a entry level phone and then the end of affordable smartphones will be near.
I think Samsung is being and has been exposed to harmful propaganda. Sort of like a black campaign. That, as if Samsung is just a follower for Apple. But the real point is not only this. What's really happening is that Apple wants to make an extra profit by selling chargers and earphones separately. It's just that he can't do it alone. He needs friends so that this becomes the norm. Therefore the propaganda was spread through ETnews and ChosunBiz.
This companies have become greedy now.
Jasper5774, 27 Oct 2020I have 4 one plus chargers at my home with only 2 phones in use. If I buy new one plus device ... moreThat's good for u but for first time buyers then that's a no and yes there's a lot of chargers out there but there a lot of fakes as well.
And there's a lot of people who doesn't know how to check if its the right charger that fits or a fake one.
People who buys from an online shop.
Shiny Dave, 27 Oct 2020Yes, apparently, given that European iPhone 12s have this. Although France requires earphones ... moreBecause French seem to be smarter than the rest of the world. Other countries should follow their example given that removing the charger and earphones from the box seems to be becoming a trend right now
One day all we will have is a Portless phone, just wait till Apple do it maybe in 3 years time and other follows.. so u will.need ur wireless charger and BT headset or earbuds all time
This is why I hate fkin Apple, and I hate more the copycats that all these Android oems are.
Boggy-Stefy, 27 Oct 2020On this type of thinking from people, the companies made their money.
Companies idea: "... moreI have 4 one plus chargers at my home with only 2 phones in use. If I buy new one plus device there will be one more fast charger. Why would I want that. And there are also 4-5 old usb chargers.
Consumers are not stupid. If they find that something is overpriced they will quickly switch to other model.
But this way companies may or may not make profit but certainly e waste will reduce.
Also I can buy wireless chargers if I want without even wasting usb chargers which came with the box. Which will be better than usb for supporting device.
I want Apple and Samsung with Preinstalled AM/MW/SW tuning radio in offline mode.
The future of the smartphone market is getting darker....
[deleted post]They highly praise OnePlus phones coz those phones are simply good.
Anandtech is indeed Apple biased. There's no arguing about this.
but as long as they dont introduce any proprietary charging tech, then not bad at all, just make the charger sturdy and not a disposable accessory...
but of course, whatever a company with a huge following throws in, fans accept it - whether it is an iphone or galaxy...
Jakubko, 27 Oct 2020Is it legal in europe? Can you sell a product without a proper way for charging it?Yes, apparently, given that European iPhone 12s have this. Although France requires earphones under their local law so for that market they use a larger box with space for EarPods and the "regular" phone box.
Is there someone forcing Apple and Samsung and other companies to ditch the charger and etc?
Apple is very smart at market management and I know they don't want to do something that will give them bad impression.
Same goes with Samsung.
Good thing I never buy Samsung phones. If they pulled this off, that's one more reason for me not to buy their phones.
Wow! Thanks Apple!
I think ill rather buy a phone that gives you free charger in the box instead of one that doesn't give you a charger, but i do not mind not including earphones though...
Sapple. That should be their name.
Phones fan, 27 Oct 2020Totally agreeFew days before samsung was criticising apple for that , now it is doing the same thing WOW!!!
Hipocritic Company,sorry to say but now this is true
