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:

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.

not exactly double. because of weight factor. lets say a truck can carry 10,000lb load. The old Boxes WITH charger only weigh what, 100g or so less? Even though the truck pallet can physically FIT more, the weight capacity of the truck is still the same. just like an elevator. you can fit ONE 3000lb person, or 30 100lb people.

this argument only realy works for apple as they are the only ones who keep insisting on making their own unique charger design every other generation whereas everyone else use usb-c and stick to it, apple run a multi-billion dollar deal using their unique and very pointless charger designs, practically everyone else use a universal design that fitt to them all, no licensing deals there to be made, their own chargers they make and sell charge no faster then any other decent quality usb-c cable out there.

A good solution is to include a premium gallium nitride charger as you mention and offer both versions: one with GaN and one with no charger so people can choose. However creating different SKUs might be nightmare and bundling an external charger might be the better solution even though that will not address the “more packaging” problem.

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.

Whenever a company takes something away because it's good for you, you can be sure they're really doing it because it's good for THEM... With regard to chargers, if they include one it inevitably gets absorbed into the $X99 price point. Splitting out the charger gives them something else to sell you. So they get you coming and going - it reduced their cost on the original phone, and then they make additional profit in selling you the charger that you used to get for free. Reminds me of a few years ago when Cadbury in Australia reduced their standard chocolate block size from 250g to 200g because a smaller portion size is healthier. Strangely the price did not also drop by 20%. Then later they increased the block size back to... 220g, with a big campaign about the generous new block size (but still bumped up the price, as I recall.)

Making 2 versions of a product might be a good idea. 1 version sold as a set, and the other phone only. Depending on the results of the market research they'll make, they can sell some % as a set and the rest solo. 🤷🏻‍♂️ The backwards compatibility must me reinforced by some laws. The companies would NEVER do it by themselves if there isn't a gain in it for them because the only purpose of a commercial association is profit and nothing else. All the social responsibility bullshit they give us is far from being sincere. I think many customers are already aware of that.

Hi Arun, I really like this video, finally someone speaking up about these not so eco friendly choices that are being foisted upon consumers. Your video was very spot on with the exception of main thing. You failed to mention that the primary reason why companies did this is to gain that extra 25$ per phone. So the price hasn’t reduced for new phones, Apple, Samsung or Xiaomi haven’t mentioned that since they’re not including these accessories they’re reducing the price of the phone by X percentage or amount to compensate for the lack of accessories. People who wish to buy the accessories they can pay the difference(preferably the discount offered) to get the accessories required. That way both parties stay satisfied. In this particular case, not only have the companies increased their profit by not including the charger, and headphones but also by increasing their profit for the sales of chargers and headphones that consumers will have to pay out of pocket. Not to mention now it costs them less to make the smaller box. If we do the math here(quoting prices in usd), by April 2021(in 7 months) Apple sold 100 million iPhones. If we say the charger cost them 10$ to make and multiply by 100 millions, that’s a 1 billion dollars profit, and that’s just the charger alone. If we say 25% of the population that buy an iPhone would need to buy a usb charger because that’s the cable that is included which people don’t normally have. That’s 25 million chargers sold at a sale price of 19$ per charger which equates to 475 million dollars in revenue for Apple. Let’s call a spade a spade, this isn’t about the environment, it’s about the share holders and increasing profits. Just my 2 cents but more people need to speak up about this.

I ve had the same thoughts when I got an iPhone 13. So thanks for this video. They could have also done something like asking the owner if they want a charger on the purchase. So people who did not have one they would get it free as they are supposed to. But people who do have one and are eco friendly they would not choose to get one. But they chose to make people buy one. I can only see it as more profit for them

Don't forget that it halves their shipping costs per item sold as they can fit ~twice the amount of devices in a container for shipping. Whilst they need to also ship chargers, magsafe etc, they are getting a sale for each of those too. It's all about profit. Best way to be environmental is to not change your phone every 2 years.

I think the biggest benefit for having no charger is the less volume it takes to send the same amount of phones and ship it. Not really directly benefit customers, but could increase transport bandwidth if manufacturing allows it. Customers may get stuff faster also I guess, but no long-term benefit...

Then you have to consider there is a chance of double or even triple the amount of waste when you factor in which chargers we buy. If we buy the OEM or higher quality (see also priced) equipment, it typically lasts longer. However, not everyone is going to be able to afford that. So many will be going out and finding lower quality, lower costing chargers/cords etc., and thus buying second or even third replacement pieces when the first one fails due to being inferior parts. This is not even taking into consideration having a second or third or fourth charging device for work, next to the bed/office/kitchen etc. Which I do understand is not part of the OEM's supposed footprint, but it does add up into the overall equation. Just stop making things that are low quality that need to be upgraded, or are not compatible, so that we can continue to use them. But then again, the worst thing we could do is add a bunch of heat to our batteries, and fast charging our batteries does tend to add heat to them.

I honestly NEVER used the included earphones or charger because they always were crap to beginn with. There are way more important points to be environment friendly (repairability, longer software suppurt...) - So I'd even say in this case it actually is good for the environment and besides.. I never managed to break or loose a charging brick, but I might be a minority here.

Samsung usually packaged a decent charger with their phones, but I've got several sitting around here now. I don't like to use high speed charging most of the time, due to it causing higher temps and shortens the battery life. For slower charging, I've got USB-ports all over the place. Monitors, PC, powered hub, wall outlets, a lamp, etc... Just need a cable. USB-C is awesome. I'm really looking forward to the other ports disappearing. Samsung's included headphones were always junk and were just a waste to manufacture and package with the phone.

A thought. Shipping phones without their chargers can also be beneficial because the manufacturers don't need to design, pack and store smart phone boxes for all the types of outlet designs in the world. While some plugs are smaller in design, others might be huge (Germany vs. UK for example). This way, mostly internationally, the packages of the products are ready to be shipped (except the presets for the OS and the manual books, if it has any). This might account for a huge bit of the environmental impact. Just a thought.

What we really should be working towards regarding being more sustainable is boxes that can break down for example, lowering the amount of distance each individual item goes to eventually get to the apple store or our house. More sustainable materials in the production of our phones if possible. Rather than just cutting things out. That doesn't really solve anything.

I recently bought a new phone, it came with a charger. I continue to use my charger I already had and the phone complains that I should be using the charger that came with the phone. Also you don't have to buy earphones or the new charger from Amazon or any other online source. You could go to a B&M store, while you're already out and about (saving the gas/etc. waste from an extra trip).
Jon Einar Mattias Visser
I think I should start a smartphone business. Included brick, charger and maybe wireless earphones. All designed to fit in those new slim boxes and with ads that show that this is really more eco friendly. Better yet, a modular box! Full with options to only have the phone, or have earphones and chargers with it, at almost only manufacturing coring cost of your buds or charger extra, but buying it seperate cost extra (the phone itself will make revenue). That way they will almost always choose the full phone box with charger and stuff, save on the planet and some might not choose the full box because they have chargers or earphones from their previous phone. How nice🤩

It was obvious that removing accessories was about increasing margins, not helping the environment. If you can sell a device for the same price as the year before but remove $10 in accessory cost & box size, suddenly your margins have increased $10/unit.

He failed to mention that the Galaxy Buds Pro or a gift card is largely a freebie to early customers who preordered, so nobody's gonna go out and purchase those cheapo earbuds. As the phone's prices decrease over the next few months it is offsets what you can buy for that price. As for Lightning cable, however proprietary it means Apple is streamlining their product line. The other issue is that Android now needs its own version of Magsafe and I doubt there will be standardization among brands.
bluephreakr 2 meses atrás
The extra boxes, at least the Amazon ones isn't that much of a concern _if you choose to keep them._ Just more boxes to move with, if need be. The thin boxes that try to take very little from the environment are the true environmental hazard because they can only be used for their original purpose. The move to Bluetooth is good _as an option_ but to make it mandatory or use an adapter means then the environmental impact worsens with needing more electronics to do the same old thing of plugging it in. The move toward a no-charger release is _only_ good if the charger and corresponding box is an option. So making mandatory the lack of a charger means then more waste. The end-user then has to be conscious of what to purchase online before they commit so they receive less boxes. (But then, that flies in the face of environmental consciousness by reusing the cardboard to move with.) If we weren't in pandemic times, people could _in theory_ give back boxes as part of an international scheme to re-purpose boxes rather than making new ones for people who are in no need of boxes, but then that prevents people from being environmentally-conscious while moving by reusing or lending boxes from their previous online purchases. There's not much good that will come from this. But then again, how much good was there to begin with? I think the environmental impact isn't as bad as you believe compared to people buying boxed meals they have to produce themselves, rather than having pre-cooked meals which would be more environmentally sustainable as one factory with a 24 / 7 oven and flash-freezer is more efficient than ten-thousand homes cooking meals en masse. _Now if only they were more healthy..._

The proper way to market it and stay in the good graces of the consumer is to offer a reasonable price difference with the standard configuration including all the accessories. Then users can remove accessories they don't need with it presented as lowering the price. Additionally, as many of these companies manufacture specialized quick chargers and wireless variants of their headphones that can all be purchased separately, they can give users the option of upgrading the standard option to the more powerful counterparts. This gives the consumer more control over what they're buying while not making it seem like they need to pay extra for things that they may feel should be included. As for the packaging, the companies could easily manufacture two sizes of boxes, one for the complete package and one for all other configurations, because it's really just the charger that'll impact the size of the box the most. The inside layout of the box can change dynamically depending on the user's configuration. Companies should never market an incomplete product at a given price and then tell customers that if they want to have an integral part they'll have to pay extra, and if they don't want the extra special first party part, but rather use their old one they still have to pay extra for an adapter. (Apple Pro Stand or VESA mount adapter anybody?)

Wenlocke 5 dias atrás
Looking back at this with the hindsight of a year, it's just gotten... more confusing. Samsung does not give a charger with their latest crop of flagships... but at the same time offers a free package for those flagships that you can claim when you buy the phone (that you have to claim afterwards and get delivered separately) for a "limited time (that seems to keep getting extended) that has a charger and (obnoxiously short) cable and case (and s-pen in the case of the fold 3). So, no charger in the box, but if you buy the phone in the first few months, they'll send you the missing charger in separate packaging for free. Eco-friendly, my eye. That looks like no more than a "Buy early and we'll give you the thing you'll need" sales trick.

when you buy the phone you should have the option to add accessories to your order. like if you want it to come with the charger because you need a new one then you can request the charger even if it adds on a few dollars also: something I learned from doing electrical is that you should try to do every possible task with one tool when your working on something so that way your not constantly switching back and forth because it’s more efficient. So that makes these companies arguments looks stupid because all they’re doing is rather than just simply having everything possible being done at once they are splitting it up making things more complicated but also less effective like how he pointed out that ordering separate items means more packages and deliveries which uses up more gas and is actually worse than using the one package and delivery for everything.

Dang didn’t knew Samsung and Xiaomi jumped the bandwagon. For an iphone user since 2016, I can definitely say that their USB brick chargers can lasts for years and I can use that to charge other gadgets. If they’re removing the charger/earphone, they should definitely cut the price I guess. So unfair to be paying higher for the next model and then you still need to buy another brick.

@Darcy Fitzpatrick The only reason third party repairs are as bad as they are is because apple purposefully makes it as hard as possible for them to do anything. They cannot source genuine parts, don't have access to schematics, are unable to purchase individual components, even if they were made by a subcontractor because Apple told them they could not sell to anyone but Apple. In the newest iPhones you need special software to be able to 'pair' the screen with the phone otherwise it doesn't work, and you know that Apple spent millions developing that feature, which ONLY serves to make independent repair shops look bad. Also Apple repairs can be incredibly poor, and they often just replace the entire logic board because they don't want to train technicians properly. Check out Snazzy Labs' experience with his iMac Pro.

Everything in the second half of the video makes sense. Wireless chargers aren't as efficient as port chargers. The port parity problem is a big issue too, but Apple's issue with lightning specifically is with the production chain, not as a competitive advantage against android devices (not that it's super inclined to make the expensive change to USB-C soon anyway, given how much it makes selling licenses to use the Lightning protocol to manufacturers). The recent change for included cables using USB-C is a large step in the right direction to achieving parity. Everything in the first half of the video about knock-on effects is moot. There's positive knock-on effects you neglected to mention. Because the boxes are smaller, they save paper and plastic. Because they're smaller, they can fit more in a single shipment, fit more shipments in a pallet, and fit more pallets in a shipping container. More in a container means less containers needed, more things per ship, less ships, less fuel. It's not on smartphone companies to get us used to living within our means. No, nobody needs to buy a faster charger just because they bought a phone capable of doing it; it's there for when you need to upgrade because you lost your old one. If you've owned a phone made anytime within the last 5-6 years, then no you don't need to buy a new set of headphones either; you've already got the adapter somewhere; clean your room and find it. The whole "people need to buy a new charger, headphones, cable" is not on the companies, it's on the consumer. We as a society just need to be better about reduce, reuse, recycle, in that order.

I agree with the last part of the video regarding the lightning port and Magsafe. I am sorry to disagree with the first part of the video about producers not including the battery charger anymore: I am still using old chargers that came with the previous phones I had and, even if the cable is worn, I am still using them. What I mean is that the life cycle of a charger is longer than the life of the phone itself. Using more packaging to buy a charger and a pair of earphones separetely is not a big issue as all the paper and cardboard is recyclable while the plastics and electronics of a charger is not. Furthermore this strategy should prevent customers to switch to another producer: as long as you already have the charger and hearphones you maybe less inclined to pass to the competition.

I honestly have to agree…my house is like…swimming in chargers and their respective USB bricks. Maybe they’re slower? I wouldn’t know bc I charge my device overnight and just use it during the day and I generally makes it through. If I’m going to need a ton of battery for some reason (air travel perhaps), I take a backup. I’ve never resold or given away a phone before bc I use them until they are virtually unusable (~5 years in my experience). Maybe I’m “doing it wrong,” but unless the port changes, I don’t need a new cable and brick.

I believe the forced USB-C standard that was ipassed in the EU will be the reasoning for Apple to remobe the charging port, and go full wireless. Means no more adapters for regular headphones, / potential blocking of any non apple bluetooth earbuds. Gotta buy that extra Charger/brick. And telling you how good and exo friendly that is. Can't wait for the Iphone 14, and everyone else following suit a year after.

You know that Samsung and Apple and all the other big names did this to show that they are eco-friendly, but the rest of the companies that will provide the items that are missing are now the bad guys. At least that's how the general public is going to see this. That Amazon uses too big of boxes, that headphone jack company a b and c have too much packaging. It takes some of the negativity that you might feel away from Apple and Samsung and puts it more towards those other companies. One of the best things we can do is use our phones for 3 years and if we're lucky longer. And everyone just needs to stop investing in these latest and greatest this year and the next year and the next year phones. Really I think that is a huge Factor that would help the environment because we would be showing the companies that know we are not going to buy every single year. Most of my phones have lasted 3 years or longer. I'm actually still on my Galaxy 10... Am I due for an upgrade ... Probably but my phone works for all my needs and I've been very happy with a very low phone bill. That is just me and that is only my opinion 😃

Arun made a lot of good points but here are the ones he missed and a proposal “counter argument” 1) people who upgrade from iPhone to iPhone can reuse their cables and chargers. It’s still an lightning point. We don’t need to buy new adapters or cables 2) Many folks have MacBooks, mba, or iPad… they all come with usbc chargers already. 3) nobody uses apple headphones. Almost nobody buys cheap headphones because apple doesn’t come with one So while Apple is indeed doing it for their own bottom line, let’s not pretend a significant portion of the population buying apple products are not repeat offenders. Apple customers are loyal. So ditching the charger doesn’t necessarily mean people go out and buy a new charging adapter. It actually forces people to “share” adapters for multiple purposes rather than having a charger for each device which is stupid. In reality folks find ingenious ways of avoiding spending more money on more cables and chargers. Ultimately most people don’t care. They just want to change their phones and using old chargers aren’t a big deal.

Apple: We want to be environmentally friendly, therefore we remove the charger. Also Apple, stuffs quite a few paper cards inside their iPhone boxes... mainly for "info".

Let me explain the REAL reason why they do this, and it has all to do with logistics. When you remove the charger (and possible the cable) from the box, the company will reduce the number of SKU that it has to handle. It can easily transfer units that where not sold in US to Colombia with little effort. Not only that, since the charger follow some very specific rules within each country it is one less hassle for them to deal. Another big advantage, as you pointed, is the size of package and not for the reason that it saves the environment. It will actually save the shipping cost for the companies. They can now manage to pack a higher quantity of devices in one single container or even on a flight to different stores. So, what they sell as a bonus for you is in fact a HUGE saving cost for them. Not to mention that they can market as a good approach for the environment.

The thing with apple is that they always make a move that is bad for consumer as the first ones on the market starting the trend- after that all companies follows. And it is not a good consistency I would say. They were first to remove earphones, first to remove charging crick but whats most important they first stareted to sell super expensive phones and "tested" the consumers- like with iPhone X. First 1K USD phone on the market, it was shocking and still it sold superbly well so other companies were like "huh, so you can sell phone for 1K USD and people will buy it? Then we will do it also".

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"...

The best way, ist to let the customer choose. Like Sony do it. When you buy the Xperia 10 III you can choose to get no charger and pay 10€ less, or to get a charger. So people who don't need a charger will save 10€ and not buy separately one. And people who need it, will get it in the box without additional delivery and trash.

From what I heard, this was a directive by the EU who are also mandating USB-C to minimise different charger types. They are aiming to make chargers interoperable and therefore you may buy less. So I presume that the phone companies decided to do this world wide. Not arguing for this, just trying to explain how government helps us, by creating lots of regulations designed to do one thing and can be oblivious and uncaring of the unintended consequences. Just imagine if they start mandating how to manage your health. What could go wrong? Note,
Hjalmar Mês atrás
Yes, the EU mandating USB-C is the reason for this change and I personally think it's a good thing. I had a few chargers which I have never used, because the first one still worked fine. It means less waste of resources and I can switch from Samsung to Apple without the need of a new charger, which means I have more options than in the past.

I have a 7 year old Samsung charger that works with any Samsung phone that is out today. If you upgrade your phone every 2 years, that's almost 4 chargers that you now have when you really only need one. Plus, any other device I got came with a charger too that will work with my phone. Maybe without adaptive fast charging, but I don't even use that feature.
