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:

    Buying a new phone in 2015: Oh boy, I wonder what features will be added!

    Apple says it wants to be environmently friendly but still makes it as hard as possible to reapair any of their devices.

    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

    Over time Xiaomi got an option on their website that allows you to choose if you get a charger in a box when you by a phone, the only right way to do it. Also good video, fair points made

    Imagine if an automotive company start selling cars without tires and said "you could use your old car tires to save the environment"

    I genuinely felt offended when Apple came out saying they are not including a charging brick citing environmental benefits. They are doing it to save their own logistics and shipping costs. Save costs but charge customers more. Business tip; dont treat your customers like they are dumb.

    The most eco friendly thing you can do is to keep using your current phone as long as you can .

    Why don’t they ask the question; “would you like the charger/earphones/cable in the box?” When the phones get packaged just leave out what has been requested. Another way to reduce the wast would be to ask for the old equipment that is left laying around the house. Then give you a discount if you recycle it.

    Buying a charger and earpods separately requires another 2 boxes, we still pay the same price for just the phone. It is more like how can the companies make more money and have more convenience in shipping, under the cover of "protecting the environment".

  • kwebb209

    He didn’t mention the fact, and biggest advantage, that Apple can now ship twice as many phones on one pallet. Remember every business decision revolves around the dollar

    Thanks God, you’re the first IRglo I hear talking about this problem, these are the exact same things I’ve thought during this years and it felt so unreal that nobody was even talking or making a video about it…we need more people with visibility, as you, to bring this problem to the attention of their public.

  • Laura

    Apple’s own reasoning for not including a charger with their phones makes me laugh! In the meantime, how many people drove down to the store and purchased a charger so they could use their new phone?😂

  • TechHoz

    Ok, if this video presented in court, Smartphone companies gonna lose case :P

    They could also make the charger optional - so you can order with or without. If you have one already. Apple also need to switch to standards like USBC. They should also have a recycle optional where you can return unwanted chargers.

  • Kataroku

    It's so that, when you walk into a store to buy a new charger, you'll be met with multiple options: $20 for this standard charger that otherwise would have come prepackaged with your new phone, or $40 for this ultra charger that also glows in the dark!

    Finally, someone has said what I've been saying for years. You are also missing the MOST important thing...and that is that chargers bought aftermarket also aren't made for that phone and LITERALLY decrease the phone's lifespan and efficiency. This means that we purchase twice as many chargers, phones, packaging etc...but it also uses more electricity because of this inefficiency.

    The fact that the flagships come in an almost empty box is kinda weird when we consider that the rest come with a charger (even capable of charging the phone at full speed) and sometimes a case.

    "We want to go green!" while wanting to convince their users that they need to buy a new smartphone every single year. Interesting...
