The Samsung Galaxy S21 line doesn’t ship with a power adapter or earbuds inside the box and now the South Korean brand has explained the reasons for this rather controversial decision.

Most Samsung customers don’t use the included accessories

In a statement to SamMobile, Samsung claimed the following:

To sum the statement up, Samsung has removed the charger and headphones from its flagship smartphone boxes because most Galaxy customers don’t need or use new accessories.

The move also helps the brand address reduce its carbon footprint and e-waste, both of which are serious issues at the moment.

These are both valid points, but it should be noted that Samsung mocked Apple for doing the same thing only three months ago.
