Starting next year, Samsung won’t include chargers with some phones

AlbertflexAlbertflex in July 09, 2020

Starting from the year 2021 Samsung may not include chargers in the boxes of some of its smartphones, according to a report by a Korean news site ETNews. Samsung is taking them out because many people already have chargers and to help reduce costs, the report says.

Although this seems like a big move to exclude a charger in the box, Samsung according to another report is not the only major phone manufacturer taking the this route. The report disclosed that Apple might not include a charger alongside this year’s iPhone lineup. Apple may also replace the 5W and 18W chargers with a 20W fast charger that might be sold separately (depending on which model you decide to buy).

Removing chargers from phone boxes experts suggest might be a significant way for major manufacturers like Samsung and Apple to lower the costs of selling their phones and make their phone packaging smaller, but it could also have a major impact on the environment. Taking them out of some of the top-selling smartphones could help reduce the number of chargers that go unused and are thrown away because people already have a bunch more scattered around their house.

Not including chargers in phones phone packs is not a good idea for me, because I might be using the phone for the first time and it will be a disappointing if I don't see a carry come charger-same with other phone users. Besides, using another brand of charger for a different phone product or using a charger brand for the same but advanced phone model might either way weakness the battery or not give the customer what he/she expected... Though the reason for this action is quite reasonable,but I'm not in support of it.

Wow, it wouldn't make much of a difference assuming the price of chargers are not hiked by Retailers, because most people buying a new phone would have already either lost or had their chargers spoilt, so they would still have to buy a charger, but anyways let's see how it goes, fingers crossed.

Wow, that is really thoughtful from them. We can now buy phones at lower prices since most of us have more than one charger at home. Moreover, more phones will be easily shipped since the amount of space is reduced. I am really happy about this update.

The idea of removing chargers so as to reduce the cost is not a bad idea because might have been using smartphones before deciding to new phone because of its new features but what about those that are using the phone for the first time Using any charger for any phone is not a good idea,,not all chargers are fit to charge all phones The idea isn't favourable everyone anyway..

Authenticmanuel26Authenticmanuel26 in Jul 10, 2020 Reply

Selling the phones and chargers separately to reduce cost will be good but releasing the phones without making provision for chargers at all isn't advisable. Not all users are having so many chargers. And I think this move will automatically cause an increase in the patronage of low standard and less efficient chargers made by manufacturers.

That won't be a good idea... removing chargers from new phones has no importance cause it's not advisable to use market or different phone charger for Samsung or any phone that is not of the same company...phone batteries eg the Samsung battery might have a specific volts or charge that's supposed to be generated from the charger to the battery... using another might affect the battery life of the phone.

So I don't think it's a good idea, chargers should be added to phones cost.
