Samsung also mulls removing the charger from some retail packages

08 July 2020
The report comes from South Korea and states that not all Galaxys will be affected by this move.

Good things you never learn from Apple, but just keep on learning the stupid bad things.

If like that, I am sure that your global sales for next year definitely will drop at least 30%.

Seriously? These companies do too damn much.

icancto, 08 Jul 2020correct me where I go astray but since you're bashing ... moreHow many tonnes of e-waste per year there are coming from people throwing away their smartphones? There is a brilliant solution for this: phones should be shipped without a phone inside, just one empty eco-friendly cardboard box, and buying a phone should be optional.

If they remove it, the Galaxy flagships better be below 1k

Natural Selection, 08 Jul 2020samsung i dare you to try and remove it and we customers wi... moresince the charger is not included I think the chance of that happening decreases.

GET IT BECAUSE OF THE EXPLODING BATTERY HEHE

First notches and removing headphone jack then removing charger in the box? I really hate apple for this

Jobaz, 08 Jul 2020Capitalism = greed...... It's all about profit correct me where I go astray but since you're bashing capitalism you're probably some woke leftie so one thing that might console you is this:

According to Anker, per year, there are approximately 300,000 tons of e-waste just from people throwing away the chargers that are included in the box.

Blame Apple they bring the worse trends over the last few years and everyone copies.

Samsung are next and so will Huawei and Xiaomi give it time.

well so that will be a time where samsung make android fans lose to apple fanboi.
i also hate samsung because they sent their exynos as the only choice to my country.

Good then when apple moves to miniled LCD screens everyone else will follow so thats good stuff.

this is plain stupid to copy whatever apple does. either its good thing or bad,, they just copy.
and as mentioned, samsung bundles 25w charger while device supports 45w, so why not bundling the 45w charging instead of 25w. why removing it. and not all buyers go and buy 45w separately, most of buyers stick with 25w no matter if it supports more than that.
its okay only in terms of reducing sale price as well on entry level or mid level mobile devices. but FOR FLAGSHIP DEVICES, ITS NOT OKAY TO REMOVE BUNDLED CHARGER AND FORCE BUYERS TO PAY EXTRA TO GET NECESSARY ACCESSORIES, or reduce the flagship mobiles price to $1000 or below.

Capitalism = greed...... It's all about profit

Why dont they make two options, one with charger and one without?

This is a good idea. I have 7 brand new wall chargers. I just keep using the old one.

If Samsung does this, I am done with them.

The Chinese are beating the shit out of Samsung in every market but these guys will not change. Already no 2 globally from no 1. If they continue to take consumers for granted expect them to drop down a few places further.
