These company should at least give their customer an option. You can just sell a phone without any accessory at a lower price for those who don't need them, but for those who need them, sell phone with all accessory with a higher price, which i think is a fair deal.
Anonymous, 15 hours agoBrazil is doing right. Selling the charger separately is just profit for smartphone companies … moreexcuse me, in the last sentence i meant "advertised for having a paper straw". 😅
Sorry (not sorry) if any of you here don't agree, but this was a wise and necessary decision that more governments needs to enforce on those companies. Most of them are removing everything from the box, aside from the phone, yet the price doesn't drop acordingly. Same excuse all time, but a real reduction of enviromental trash won't happen removing chargers, but doing concrete acts to reduce the use of plastic and, of course, recycling.

Now, it's Apple choice: Being banned from selling in one of their biggest markets, pay millions in fines, or spending money to keep the charger in the box. =)
Haha, after all those things they did, they really deserve this one. Bravo.
Serve them right. That's good. Cuz they really deserve it. If only the fine's more than that, it'd be better. Hopefully many ministries all over the world would apply the same thing to the crApple company and those who follow it. Fingers crossed.
This is brilliant – we need many more countries to do the same to Apple! That's the only way to make these giants contribute to society. They already pay 0% in tax.

People in brazil should use a rock and shoot it to apple store for taking revenges.
Navy23, 6 hours agoIndian govt should do the same with iPhone and Samsung. 😁😁😁😁😁World should follow them, paying such amount of money and no charger in the box is unfair.

Then just f***** give to millions who need them.

U selfish pig just commenting for sake of fun
Can't be tolerated….

Those MFs suck more money from customers and don't provide accessories with phone.

Should we ban them or support them?

Would you accept if you buy coffee without cup
How will drink ? With your table ? With your boxer ?

Bullshit comeon, business ethics should be there.
Phones with accessories is must.
If not JUST F******* BAN them and go.

Every country should take this initiative and ban the traitors samsung and apple.
Ban all the phones without charger and earphone.
Ban everywhere.

They should learn the lesson from this. It's hard earn money, just for F***** phone we have to pay more. Why the hell they can't provide all the accessories with it??????

Ban is really a good move.😁😁😁😁
Anonymous, 9 hours agono, they don't, how hard is to go and buy an charger, especially when you can choose whic… moreUr argument is total bullshit.
Every year they charge more for just F phones.
And what do we get instead?
Just F phone. No charger, no earphones, no case, nothing.
So for the price we pay, we expect all these
And it's good move…

Just u have millions of chargers doesn't mean we don't need it.

It's F money and it's a basic ethics to provide charger.

Based Brazil.

Say what you want, but the charger does nothing in terms of pollution. A battery is by far more pollutant than a charger and not one bats an eye at them.

A charger can be easily recycled or given away to someone else. You cant do that with batteries
