apple won't like that so maybe they quit europe?
Are there any details how French rating system is defined?
I can see this idea catching on.

Everybody else: Applauds this.
Apple: Oh mon Dieu.
Very good idea to implement.I love fixing devices and not buying stuff everytime something goes wrong.
Anonymous, 26 Nov 2020Because they want to buy new battery instead ofmpaying for replacement when it is old and weak. I think you missed the part of you can buy new battery for "non-USER replaceable batteries".
It's just you need to bring it to repair-shop install the new battery.
I use xiaomi and it's cost like at most $30 to replace the battery when i was basically in remote small town for work.
Well, for android phones at very least. iPhones have their way on ensuring user didn't replace anything on their own.

We used to pay €20 for an original Samsung battery and now it's close to €30 + shipping costs. Can't even walk into a major retailer to buy a battery anymore...

A phone used to its fullest, ie a FLAGSHIP phone used like a FLAGSHIP and not like a budget call/text/facebook/camera one will have its battery degraded in months.
People like you are what cornered some of us with sealed batteries. So I had to make it up by using powerbanks with removable batteries.
When all batteries are sealed, no one can stop makers from charging $100+ for battery change. Or just stop selling battery after 2 years so you buy the next shiny.
Lol gonna see a lot of customers complaining their phones will be replaced with imitation parts and bad workmanship

I had an LG G5 and very quickly regretted it's replaceable battery...
5tt, 26 Nov 2020Its a little excessive. Francistan got more problems to worry aboutYou call "excessive" to fight planned obsolescence? Are you serious? This is a very good measure that should be replicated everywhere.
For entire Europe too please. Make 'warranty void if removed' stickers illegal like the US did too.

I hope this forces brand like Apple and Huawei to make at home repairable devices.
France has long been fighting against programmed obsolescence. (The company that started this practice of programmed obsolescence is Philps with its light bulbs and then passed it on to all its products, including the current ones). ) A country that fights for the protection of the buyer is a country that owes it to its inhabitants. This measure of the degree of repair fights against this obsolescence. I live in Spain and here it's a disaster. I have a bad experiencie with Alcatel, Philips, Ford because the programmed obsolescence.

Really good idea, it should be a must in the EU (otherwise it will never arrive to Hungary :( )
