The EU is doing great things for consumers lately. Such laws should be introduced everywhere

Well, make manufacturers remake smartphones with removable plastic backs

Glass is weak and a glass slab is more difficult to repair

Chinese Android Manufacturers: “You’re kidding, aren’t you? Why is Europe so cheap? What’s repair, just buy a new one when it’s broken 🤣 .

Too bad nokia is out of the game. It’s all USA, South Kor, Jaoan, China now all with USA OS. Maybe EU G7 countries should start making smartphones, but using Google’s Android in the US?

The EU sucks corporate balls, frikin liars.
They do nothing about charger theft, astronomical prices, the removal of 3.5mm and sd.
They work together👎

But they are trying to help consumers, which I welcome. In fact, I find most Android devices easy to fix. Most of them are particularly easy to replace the battery. Apple is the big culprit. They almost deny people the right to repair. They actually electronically bond the screens to the motherboard, so replacing a screen with a generic open-market screen means losing features like Face ID or Touch ID and some functionality on the screen. ‘camera. Outrageous in my opinion. You’re almost obligated to have Apple do the repair, which often results in them offering an insane price to fix and they’ll try to sell a new device. Their devices are fantastic but that’s the only reason I won’t buy from them. Greed at the expense of the consumer. I recently replaced the battery in my Poco f3 and Redmi note 8 pro. Cost about 30 euros combined. Some Android companies, like the now defunct LG and Sony, make it just as difficult on some devices. It is time for these companies to answer for this. I’m glad the EU is doing this. Maybe a little late, but devices that cost more than 1000 euros should not have a limited lifespan of 1.5 to 2.5 or maybe 3 years.

The EU is the hero we consumers need and the villain big business hates.

Bless the EU.

The EU is the last retreat for minimal sanity in a world where corporations get away with anything. It’s far from perfect, but a lot of things legislated in the EU have been totally ignored and crushed by big global corporations.

They sometimes make fatal mistakes, like activating the “free electricity market” we have now, where scammers can raise prices by 400% without actually running out of electricity. Luckily it looks like they are regulating the emergency power in the coming weeks.

It looks like a similar target, like this electricity. Global companies brag about having trillions in the bank when you and I have to spend a grand on a phone.

Even though I don’t live in the EU, but its decisions impact the whole world

The EU is sometimes weird. They care so much about the environment and user experience through longevity, but they don’t mind everyone removing ALL accessories while charging the same for the device. Imagine buying an electric car and then having to buy a charging cable separately. This is where we are with smartphones. Or should we be afraid of a similar future with electric vehicles? It’s ridiculous. The phone must come with a charger. Period. It is an essential part of the device without which it cannot function. This is especially true for all the Chinese brands that boast 500,000,000W charging speeds and are already bragging about how they’re going to pull out the charger. How does this not offend the EU? I don’t understand.
