The REAL reason you don’t get a charger anymore.
Samsung and Apple no longer give you a charger with the Samsung galaxy S21 / S21 Ultra and Apple iPhone 12 / 12 Pro / 12 Pro Max - But is this ACTUALLY just to save the environment? To see what I got by buying the strangest phones on the internet:

  • tofuthefirst

    If they really do want to save the environment by saving packaging, they could give us an option where we can add headphones or a charging brick as an add-on. By this, those people who already have a charger/headphones consume less packaging and those who need one consume lesser packaging than buying It standalone. And, the companies can also divert profits from these third-party charger/headphones makers to themselves. I don't get why this hasn't been done yet.

      These items they claimed were free, really weren't. They just made ppl believe it was a "good deal". I'm sure they're also hoping to gain or at least save money by forcing ppl to use wireless charging, bc the trend is heading towards that in gen pop. They want to pretend to care so ppl are more inclined to buy from them and only them. Good marketing(appearing to care) = more money for them≠ an actual benefit to consumers.


      Because only green they care about is💵

    Absolutely on point in this video. I just switched over from android and had to get a new power adapter since I sold my original one with the old phone. The amount of wasted cardboard and resources to deliver 2 products that used to be sold together is absurd. This is definitely a profit driven decision and nothing to do with eco friendliness.

      @brendon rookes Not really, many android phones now use usb-c to usb-c charging cable… That means the new iPhone lightning to usb-c would work because the usb-c end is meant to be fit to the wall.

    This was an awesome and very truthful evaluation on the so called “ green initiative” to no longer include a charger or headphones, as Apple began to do! It’s ridiculous to think that for instance, Apple who had the unmitigated gall to not only exclude the rest of the package contents we’ve grown to expect when ordering a SmartDevice , but then to make this, glorified glossy and colorful egregiously, disingenuous commercial claiming their reason for not including the attachments was to save the planet, it’s not only insulting to their customers to think they could get away with this fairytale of deception like this but they make themselves look petty and cheap. They are blatantly saying right to our faces, we’re gonna charge you the same price and give you less all for the sake of their bottom line! who the hell do they think their kidding?? You were much to kind in your presentation of the facts. However, you’re speaking up and that’s appreciated! I have been an Apple guy for sometime, much like a good portion of the smartphone buying community, with an iPad, an i phone every 2 or 3 years, a desk top Apple unit and I have just ordered my first Samsung Android smartphone! That gesture by Apple to start that , petty money grabbing cheap trick, excluding the charger and the headphones, that eventually caused the rest to follow is shameful on Apples part and has not set well with me at all! Especially having some of the most expensive devices on the market, as Apple has for several years now. It’s time to start swinging back, enough is enough! Stop robbing your customers in broad daylight Apple! Your products are good but your character is NOT! I advise others, including Samsung, not to follow the guy in front of you , reminds me of the old phrase , we used to hear when we were younger, when our parents would say, if your friend ( the guy in front ) jumped off the bridge would you follow and do the same? It’s a trend that might come back and bite you, backfires a bitch! There’s also a little Judge Judy I hear in my ear as I conclude my thoughts, when she says, “ don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining “ -please don’t! Hey can you send a few copies of your presentation directly to the CEO’s and upper management of these SmartDevice creators? along with a link to some of the comments that it’s inspired.. 🤨😠😙

    Thank you for this very informative video. Excellent points made here. I always knew that magsafe wireless charging was less efficient than wired charging, so I was really disappointed to hear that Apple was considering getting rid of the charging ports on its future iPhones. I didn’t think magsafe was as bad as mentioned in the video. Have a feeling Apple is green washing and worse: encouraging other smartphone manufacturers to do the same.

    I am extremely impressed by your argument here. You lay out the problems honestly and give viable solutions. I especially like how you point out the inescapable fact that companies implement "green" policies as long as there is a profit incentive that goes along with those policies. Offloading your carbon footprint to other competitors or industries is just kicking the can down the road.

    Just bought a new phone this year since 2019 and I was completely shocked that it doesn’t come with the plug anymore. What’s worst is that ever since Apple changed to USB-C, it doesn’t even fit into my old USB plug thus me needing to dish out money to buy a separate plug 🙃

    Nice video Arun. I think this charger not being included in the box shenanigans is to increase profit. They are still selling the chargers on their site( Google, Samsung etc..) despite not including them in box which would require another delivery (more packaging, more emissions re delivery truck transportation of said product). The cost of the phones however remain the same even though you're getting less.

    So agree with you. Chargers and leads should be included. I recently got an iPhone SE as a work phone and needed to buy an apple charging plug for the weird lead. Yes Amazon sent that in a big box.

    What I love about this is, say if you want to buy an extra cord which I tend to do so I can leave one at home. Not only do you have to buy the cord but you also have to buy the charger which means two separate boxes. Which also means more money since the cord is like 25 and then the charger is also 25 making u spend 50

    People should be given the option to receive a charger when purchasing at least. They are essential and often break before the actual phone. Also they are not all compatible with other phones.

  • Ahdok

    These companies move enough volume that they could likely just have options at purchase for "with charger" and "with headphones" (at least on their website) - and have a different box for each setup - so if you have an old peripheral you want, you could save a little money and packaging, and if you needed a replacement (or a spare) you could add it in.

  • Chishannicon

    I just bought a new Motorola phone in December, and the guy at the store was like "*AND* it comes with a charger, because Motorola is one of the only companies that still cares about their customers." That was literally the first time I learned that other companies don't package charging bricks with their phones anymore, and it baffled me. The way people just accept this nonsense is depressing.

    • Argon

      I work at a phone store and I can promise you, 80% of Sales already own a charging brick, charger, and headphones compatible with their phone. The issue with this video is that pretty much everyone already has every item and just needs a phone upgrade.

    I'm 50/50 on this one... I pretty happy that they've dumped crappy single usb charging bricks that are no more powerful than 10-15w and it takes up heaps of space in my bin of charging bricks. I use GaN chargers now and it's just better and more convenient. Don't think most of the bigger companies like Samsung and Apple will ever include the Max W chargers in the box... However I totally agree that companies are looking at added $$$ in profit by omitting it. And the amount of packaging to ship stuff from Amazon is insane for the smallest things. So it's a pros and cons debate...

  • Spencjon

    If smartphone companies actually believed in ‘going green’ they’d make their products easier to be repaired - Or, for Apple, able to be repaired at all by non-Apple techs. (I.e. being able to replace their face-id module.. or ambient light sensor… or front-facing camera… or anything without them then limiting your phones functionality for no reason.

    It would’ve made actual sense if they had an option to have the brick included with the phone in addition to the brick less one

    I will say, a good bit of this video could be mitigated by buying things in a store. If you buy the earbuds at Walmart, there’s no shipping box, they’re going on a route that already exists, and all the freight packaging for however many they get in is one box that they recycle, or reuse in some cases. It’s also more sensible if you need it quickly, and AirPods are cheaper at Walmart than on Amazon or straight from Apple

    • Barrosy

      @Dylan Taaffe I agree partially. I recently stepped over from Android to iOs and I must admit, the whole Apple device experience seems a tad bit more different and premium to me. Ofcourse you're overpaying for features which are also provided to cheaper devices. In the end I feel like the premium feel I have with an iPhone can't just be copied elsewhere. Even when Apple decides to dumb down on what they're offering. I feel like other companies are just following in their footsteps and us consumers can't change anything about that.

We like to go out and see things in person, have someone explain it all go us - most of the stores that are local to us mainly shill apple and Samsung products. Sure, I compared the two and chose what suited my needs best, but I think you're overestimating the level to which the average busy distracted person is willing to go to 'not be an apple fan'. I'm all for tech buffs discussing with one another the ins and outs of stuff, but I still do not think it's fair to call anyone who ends up auto-buying one particular brand a 'fan'. It's there. It's accessible. People buy it. Corporate greed and late stage capitalism has made it that way. It is what it is.

    If it’s just solely for the benefit of the environment, they would’ve lessen the price as well since it will cost them less. But by the way things are happening, especially iPhones, they are getting more expensive and consumers won’t even have a charger for the price they pay. So yeah, as someone in the comments said, they’ve gone green - as in money.

    This is a great point. And if I might put in my 2 cents (4 cents due to inflation) an excellent charger is the Nintendo switch charger for usbc users. I have had one for years and no short in it. Cheap usbc chargers break so easily. But these switch chargers are durable and fast! Also if buying something that's not a switch charger I found looking for cords with that extra rubber extending from the end to envelope the cord seems to be the way to go. They are built alot more durable.

  • MadKnac

    I love this. Breaks down just how bad for the environment this is. But the companies' choice to do this was never about sustainability... it's about greenwashing greed: use "sustainability" as an excuse to force customers to buy for something that used to be included to increase profits.

  • Notforposers

    I remember getting the first generation iPhone (still have it). The price was around $600 (crazy back then!) But it came with 1. Charging dock 2. Charging Chord 3. Headphones (phone was TTY not 3mm) Tech reviewers back then complained about the dock, stating they never used it (I did). iPhone was so new, cases were practically non-existent. But iPhone ditch the dock in subsequent generations and I blame tech reviewers for that one. But overtime apple has been giving less with higher prices and it’s working because we’re hooked. So, there’s really no one to blame but the consumer, because they know we’ll keep buying no matter what.

    • Notforposers

      @Ewokkris Right?!

    • Ewokkris

      $600 is still crazy for a phone to me. 😂 I'm only willing to pay half that or a bit above $300 for a phone. Got my Galaxy S10 for about $350 last year after the prices finally dropped enough through eBay. Sure, I'm behind on the latest tech, but there's no way I'm forking over $1200 for a phone. 😂 I'm not investing my life savings for that. Especially when my phone tends to need replacing after 2 or 3 years because the battery just dies or starts expanding. That's just way too expensive. 😵

  • BMuseO

    Interesting, I just returned my Samsung s9+ for the 22+. I found the old s9 box, and I had never even opened the plastic around the charging brick. I have 2 usb charging hubs that have been doing great for years without any issues in speed. So really, I never cared for the charging bricks. And I had a wireless charger a long time ago that failed within 2 months. So I hope they continue giving me a port. I can deal with using the old hub.

      @Darcy Fitzpatrick In a word: BULLSHIT! Apple repairs are so ridiculously expensive, only a rich naive fool would pay them. As others have said (as well as apple) we want you to just buy a new device. I already chronicled how I handled the "ha ha no charger for YOU!" experience. I was the loudest most obnoxious customer I could be. I'm sure I made the sales associate and her manager rue the day they chose a retail career. I also know that this experience was brought up as various retail sales meetings. Maybe, just maybe, they elected to put a policy in place that says "make the customer happy."

    While this is an old video, I thought that bringing up one other problem removing the charger brings about would be… electrifying. The removal of chargers will could bring about low-quality chargers which are potentially dangerous. These types of chargers have existed forever, but now when you search for a charger, because your phone didn’t come with one, you are more likely to buy a cheap charger because it’s the first result. Best case when you buy a cheap charger is you are missing a common mode suppression choke. This is not harmful, but it feeds noise back onto the wiring of your house, which can degrade audio equipment performance and interfere with radio reception. At worst, the charger may not have a fuse which means if it shorts, you are going to see flames. Even worse than a fire, however, is the risk of electrocution. If there isn’t an interference capacitor, or the separation on the circuit board is garbage, a failing transformer can lead to full wall voltage on the USB cable.

      You are right. I am willing to bet it will be those low quality ones sold for $29.99 in the store. On another note, I have never seen a phone come with a case, unless you count the bag on a Motorola bag phone.

    For those that have never worked retail, when you buy a pair of headphones off the shelf, You are buying a plastic headphones in a hard plastic retail package. That retail package arrives at the store wrapped in individual plastic sleeves and placed in boxes sealed with plastic tape and those boxes of 6 packs of headphones are shipped in larger boxes from the manufacturer.

  • Drawesometoons

    Theres nothing eco friendly about not sending chargers. The only effect it has is that people go out and buy a seperate charger which causes even more packaging than adding a charger to the phone.

    Also removing the headphone jack added one more piece usb c to 3.5 and that's again more plastic and rubber for the environment. Companies are just trying to do stuff that's convenient for them and yes convenient for their pockets and not for the environment.

      @Francois exactly I had a sen headphones for years looked after well. My beats x headphones I had two years and battery will only now hold 64% max charge 😐

    • pookey

      It's not just the wireless earphones that will die on you and need to be thrown away - it's ANYTHING with a battery, especially things that have the battery sealed-in. As an example, I bought my missis the original Google Pixel. She loved the phone for a few years, but the battery died mid-2020 and was not holding a charge at all. We tried having it replaced, but Google outright discontinued any support for the phone and the various repair shops we contacted said they can't get any stock in. Ok, so the other option is third-party batteries, right? We bought one of those. Went to a repair store - they tried to replace it, but the phone was stuck in a bootloop like before. Turns out, there was another fault with the motherboard, not just the battery (nothing the store did, by the way, it behaved the same with the old battery in and on a cable too). Problem? Again, google discontinued the support for the phone. Wah-wah... So a device I paid for £800 back at the end of 2016 was completely useless and I had an extra battry that I bought AND made multiple trips to the repair shops. This is how the corps go "green"...

      @riccccccardoabsolutely, I still use my Bose QC15, headphones that are 10 years old. Plus they sound better than most of the wireless headphones and earphones on the market(which use audio compression to send over Bluetooth)

    Yeah.. I switched phone brands because of all the inconsistencies these companies keep dishing out. To be perfectly clear, we (the consumers) were never forced to purchase their products. It was always our choice to 'support' these companies and their antics, so the consumers should never be blaming a company for 'this or that' when they proceed to purchase these phones anyways.

    I have been a Bluetooth headphone user for a couple of years now. They work with my old Galaxy S9 and they also work with my Google Pixel 6 Pro. I do agree about the charger situation though. I now have the Google charge dock which I obviously needed to buy separately but can also charge my S9 (yes, I still use this primarily as my runs be gym phone), my partner's Galaxy, the Google Pixel 6 Pro and the charger without the dock charges my Galaxy Tab S7+. One charger / dock combo for four devices. I had to buy a separate case for the Pixel 6 Pro though. And given how glitchy the phone is I am not particularly impressed. In three years I am unlikely to buy Google again.

    It was so funny when Apple was like "we're saving the environment by not giving you a charger" and then they went on to promote "wireless" charging. Wireless charging is known for it's HUGE waste of electricity

    • Danijelovski Kanal

      @Cameron Schyuder it's because of the bad design(which sadly cannot be really improved.),i've powered stuff from longer distances with more efficiency,you just need a device with high q factor,like a ruhmkorff coil attached to a transformer with both ends of the secondary attached to metal rods of about 2m distance each,with capacitive plates on each side. you'd get around 85% efficiency with more than twice the distance a phone uses,but it needs to be properly grounded. the phone will burn out,and be destroyed in a matter of seconds,since my diy transmitter uses around 50 kilovolts,but a reciever like a coil of wire with ends attached to the electrodes of a lightbulb,would work,and the lightbulb would work more than 2 meters away. the problem is that the wireless charger is really inefficient at such a low voltage,and is not big enough,a phone also doesn't have a long rod buried in the ground,as the transmitter i described is the size of a cupboard and weighs around 30 kg,only the main coil weighs about 2 kg,since i used copper tubing for it.such a small thing like a wireless charger just won't cut it. In my opinion,wireless charging is entirely pointless.

    Not too mention the fact you can charge your device by plugging it into just about anything and all new mains sockets have a usb port for charging purposes.

    I thought of this as soon as I found out apple took away the charging brick. Especially since they are using a usb-c to the normal end with newer phones,they are making us waste more material than less and even in the new slim boxes they are capable of fitting in a charging brick.

  • Shapeless

    I do agree with your opinion up to around 4:30 about massive amounts of packaging, but these are mostly paper. I have no intent to protect the big corp here, but what honestly it really comes down in my mind (if you forget about the money) is the exponentially higher environment impact of such things as chargers, earphones and such - All made out of plastic, toxic metals like gallium (in high temps), semiconductors that themselves require tons more questionable chemicals to produce and all of that. My point is - Packaging is not the worst element here, but the contents.

  • BIG

    The new ports for charging require you to buy another cable causing more waste. Its obviously a scam

  • etheralwizard

    I had this issue with a model of Roku streaming device. Smaller box, no charger. Fake eco-friendliness! So they really want people to use whatever charger they find laying around in the drawer? I suspect that this will drive up the return rates as these chargers do go bad after a while, typically from dried out electrolytic caps in the sealed up non-ventilated chargers!

    The only thing that was holding me back from switching to Apple was no external storage, they took away the headphone jack, and they stopped giving a charging block. Then Samsung came in and did the same thing. So I think I'll be switching to Apple. Also how are they going to say you don't need a charging block because you already have them, then change the cable. Just irks me a bit

    In my specific case, I bought a couple of years ago two bricks with four USB C ports Qc and PD and I haven't used the original charger in years, I just keep it in the box for when I sell my current phone. On the headset aspect, after I bought a Buds +, I haven't used any other headset and again the headsets stay in the box for when I sell the phone. I realize that this absence was done to reduce costs, but I perfer my own bircks with a lot of ports and also the headset that I like.

  • Mal

    the actual solution is having information to allow the customer to know if they need the brick in the first place. so they can buy all at once, on top of that the price for chargers in reviews should be added to the phone. also i have never had a charger break yet. and i dont randomly throw them away lol

  • TexasKing100

    the problem is they took away the headphones and chargers right when they decided to change them. When i first got my new phone, i needed the headphones that didnt need a jack, as it was my first phone without it, and the new usbc charger, as it was also the first time, but ofc they stopped right as people needed them
