Darknoor, 59 minutes agoPlease joke.in fact, that’s exactly how I do: plug the phone into the nb’s usb. via the same cable used for external drives, recharging mouse and keyboard, too. the charger i received with the recently purchased xperia is still in the box. also the ups have a few USB ports, like most home wall sockets
YUKI93, 3 hours agoOn the one hand, it’s hard to believe that even Sony is following in Apple’s footsteps. But then … MoreThe difference here is that unlike Apple and Samsung, Sony gives users the choice of whether or not to have a charger in the box, and also offers a price reduction for those who won’t get the charger.
This is how it should have been done in the first place anyway. It’s pretty sad how Sony is blown up for this, but Samsung and Apple can easily get away with their worst stocks just because they’re popular.
Anonymous, 10 hours agoThink about sustainability and reducing e-waste or eff-off.And buy a charger made in a careless factory, shipped via long haul CO2 emitting trucks and packed in the original box, inside the packing box, filled with paper to keep it stationary.
Cared for. You all bought the “save the environment” scam and these phone makers are dancing with their money raining down on them.
Anonymous, 1 hour agoReduces the price of the phone by € 10 and then sells a charger for € 20.If you’re on the right track, you would obviously choose the option of having the charger in the box, as the option of not having the charger is entirely up to the user’s choice.
It’s a choice you have, not something you have to do like with Samsung and Apple.

Reduces the price of the phone by € 10 and then sells a charger for € 20.
no!!! well, what I’m waiting for is a replacement for the “supplied” charger which is quite slow …
but they just deleted it …
not that my load brick on my first xperia, miro, is not working … nor the most recent 1 ii …
but I used to charge with the brick and cable that came with the phone …
so you mean i have to use my charger 1 ii for my next xperia if this continues?
Oh my god people are so stupid. RIP to Sony for “partially” removing chargers, which others have been doing for years?
The hatred that this particular brand gets, I absolutely do not understand. Although they clearly gave a discount too, but De * th to Sony because it’s better.
I doubt you are the only one buying Xperias if you even have any, but I will continue to buy them. Buy yourself a life.
DMX, 10 hours agoHow crazy it is to sell you a phone that needs to be recharged but without the charger, … moreDo you know what’s even crazier? Fairphone was actually the first to do this sort of thing since the inception of the company itself and yet no one was watching them. It wasn’t until Apple did the same that everyone followed suit. Much irony?
Anonymous, 10 hours agoWho would still buy Sony then? I used to be a Sony fan, but not anymore. i bought xperia … moreA friend of mine recently traded in his Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra for a brand new Sony Xperia 1 Mk3. So really, there are still buyers out there.
On the one hand, it’s hard to believe that even Sony is following in Apple’s footsteps. But then again, they already removed the headphone jack until they put it back in the second-gen Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 models. On the flip side, since the 10 Mk3 doesn’t do super-fast charging, any reputable third-party charger can do the job well.
rizki1, 4 hours agoyes, for Sony fans, they are proud to have at the moment a micro SD, 3.5mm, etc. Enjoy … moreSony has already removed the headphone jack with the XZ2, XZ3 and 1 series next to 5. Have they continued to do so for 2020 1 Mk2 and 5 Mk2? No, they didn’t. So really, Sony is very unlikely to remove the headphone jack or microSD card support. They know not everyone will go wireless. Even I went back wired for music.
Techfun, 6 hours agoSony fans have said Sony won’t change …Who Said They Won’t Change?
We are not blind fanatics who just support whatever the company we fanboy does. We support Sony because they are one of the few who are making pro-consumer movements with their products.
Besides, you haven’t read the whole article? It has been made clear that this is only an option and also comes with a minor price cut unlike others that do without any options and yet the price remains the even when they come with a charger.
If Sony ever decides to remove the charger inside the box, I would be one of the first to criticize them for that. This should be the way to support businesses; you are not condemning them for their anti-consumer movements because it will seem like what they are doing is right and they will keep doing it until we can no longer ask them to bring back those necessary features.

yes, for Sony fans, they are proud to have at the moment a micro SD, 3.5mm, etc. Take advantage, maybe Sony will eliminate it in 2022 as well.
Well, at least they did the honest thing and applied the corresponding price drop. So kudos to them for that.
As to why are they doing this: it’s pretty obvious they are preparing for this new EU law
Sony fans have said Sony won’t change …
Why not just sell 2 options, one with an inbox charger while the other doesn’t and a little cheaper price.
Well I have too many chargers
