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:

  • Chargers which plug into public electrical outlets have to be tested and certified they comply with electrical safety and fire resistant. Comes at a cost. Also have to produce variety of chargers to suit country electrical GPO mains pin styles, also comes at cost. No charger represents lot of savings in material, production, certification and resources including less packaging and weight savings which translates into shipping larger qty product in single shipping saving logistics costs. Added benefit is a phone can ship anywhere in world without having to bother about having correct charger in box and relevant safety certifications which comply with each country local regulatory laws.

  • On the left coast, we already saved the world by switching to non biodegradable grocery bags. We aren't concerned about over packaging. Our landfills are safe, because we won't be able to fit anything in them in a few years anyway. Next is the real culprit... shipping Could you imagine if we had no carbon emissions from the vehicles that deliver your food and plastics? Then most of us would have no ability for concern

  • You missed the most important aspect: when companies deliver their own bricks, earphones or other accessories, they tend to align the quality of that additional accessory, with the quality of the phone, as a result you get a much better long lasting piece of equipment. When you buy the original equipment it is very expensive, so some or most people tend to buy an equivalent, on Ebay, AliExpress, Amazon, or evet at their local retailer, which in a lot of cases, is with lower quality, leading to increased frequency of that equipment being replaced and reshipped, meaning even a multiplication of the environment footprint. So in my point of view, a better approach, is to let the buyers decide upon purchase, the discount he or she gets when choosing to exclude the extra accessories. This is better than letting him decide what to include, and seeing the price increased. I think that psychologically, an increase in prices rather than a discount, makes people decide to see if they can find that equipment chipper elsewhere, but I don't really know that, and did not look up for a research that states that. I believe this is a valid claim, you can use in one of your next videos - in any case I enjoyed this video.

  • The manufacturers are liars. It's all down to greed and their bottom line at the end of the day. How about all the recourses used to make a new model of smartphone every year (in most cases with only marginal upgrades)? The same tactics are used when they no longer provide OS upgrades to a 2 -3 yr old model phone. All modern smartphones are perfectly capable of a 6-7 year lifespan easily. What a farce! I wonder if the introduction of the Linux smartphones will seriously disrupt their super lucrative industry?

My work sent me an iPhone without a charger and I'm an android user so this is the only way I have to charge my work phone. It's battery life is horrendous so it's often at 0% in the morning if I forget to charge it and it takes forever to charge on my Wireless charger

But if you would want them in the future they can will air deliver it to you for you are a loayal customer. The magsafe can I use to other stuff? Like the usb c you can find alot of uses with it. But if the magsafe is only useable for that version of the phone and it comes with a new version for the next phone could you turn in your older one with the old charger and get a small discount for the newer one and they could re-cycle the old parts somehow. If thats the case I belive they are willing to make an effort on saving the planet.

  • My GF got a new s21. And she got a deal to send off for a free pair of headphones from Samsung. So basically they think they are saving the environment by giving incentives to buy a phone within a set date and then sending another delivery with more packaging to get rid of, that will probably arrive on a fuel guzzling van. Samsung logic. We all know it's because they want to sell chargers separate. They always charge 3x the price of a 3rd party accessory as well. I saw what seemed to be an identical wireless charger minus the Samsung label, that was a 1/3 of the cost. :/
