And just like that Samsung also follows suit. There's not much difference between Samsung and Apple anymore
Dude why!?!? i wanted this phone so bad and now they will sell it without charger???? Guess ill pick huawei again... jesus samsung
I'm an android user and android mobile manufacturers should be ashamed.. I mean they literally copy every single thing apple does (eg samsung). Samsung would never dare to remove charger from the box if apple didn't do it first. Common samsung, you guys can do better.
AnonD-804996, 08 Dec 2020Yeah, no. Only biggest Android fanboys are comforting themselves with such nonsense.
Also s... moreApparently we're not allowed to criticize these giant corporations anymore. I made two comments with no objectionable content, and they never got approved by the mods. Maybe i should quit GSMArena. I don't live in China, so I don't appreciate the blatant censorship.
Next time they remove phone and sells only box because everybody have a phone at home and ask 2000 for a box.
galaxya71user, 08 Dec 2020Why do companies always copy the worst parts of iPhones? Why can't they copy the good par... moreBecause the worst things for customers are the best things for companies. That's profit.
And every company out there wants it. Sadly, some more than others=Apple, Samsung, Sony, Huawei until not long ago.
I will certainly not buy any product from one of this companies any time soon (no matter how good it turns out to be). That is the easiest way to say f**k you to that particular company.
I am pretty sure they found a tax evading scheme and are exploiting it. Apple are always first when it comes to some shady financial tricks. It's easier than investing in actual research and development.
Shameful of these companies to claim it is for environmental reasons.
You buy one of their phones, which has a bit less packaging.
You buy one of their chargers, which has packaging.
Then you buy one of their sets of headphones, more packaging!
Doesn't sound very environmental to me.
Just pure pure greed, such a shame.
I want to thank Apple for this and also for the NOTCH and removing the HEADPHONE JACK and the removal of convenient FINGERPRINT SENSOR by implementing the face unlock gimmick.
THANK YOU Apple for disrupting the whole smartphone market.
and still people buy Apple
Sam, 08 Dec 2020Because Android has all the updates already on day 1, there's not much to update feature-wise.Yeah, no. Only biggest Android fanboys are comforting themselves with such nonsense.
Also so hilarious when Samsung was the first to mock Apple for removing charger and now they're doing it. Biggest hypocrites ever. But people will rush to Samsung with same religious following as some do to Apple... It's pathetic. Only thing this idiocy is saving is their margins. Environment is just an excuse and a really bad one at it.
Samsung has usb c which is universal (except for iphones and older smartphones) so its not a huge deal
That first paragraph couldn't be any more true. That is why today I'm only interested in LG and Sony phones. They have their own identity and I really love that a lot.
This is bulls**t to the max.Saving the environment sure..,so instead of getting things in one package,you can buy 3.This saves them money on shipping since they can put more phones on one pallet,and doesnt do anything about the "save the nature,and the world" motto they try to shove down your throat.Also gives them a reason not to repair your phone if it has battery problems,since you didnt charge it with the official samsung charger.They will find a way to twist it wrong for customers....Its not cheaper for us at all be it apple or samsungs move,since the new charger is usually faster,and probably better for your battery(not sure on this one).SO you have to buy one anyway.This whole move is targeting people who buy phones every year,having chargers all over the place.Not for people like me who owns a 4 year old oneplus 3T with one charger and wants to buy a new phone that would last for the same period.
