Back in the day, when you bought a phone, you didn’t have to worry about already having a charger because one was always packed in the box with the phone. These days, however, it’s become increasingly common for smartphone manufacturers to exclude the power accessory. In fact, Oppo recently revealed that it would stop including chargers with several of its products starting next year.

Although the practice has become more frequent, it’s not the case for every phone. So for today’s topic, we want to know if your phone came with a charger or not. Whether it did or didn’t, let us know by voting in our survey.

Although it’s more likely than not that you already have a charger that you use for your new phone, it doesn’t make it any less frustrating that one wasn’t included. Especially when it seems you’re still paying the same price despite getting less in return.

But how does this trend make you feel? Don’t be afraid to leave a comment down below if you would like to tell us what you think about the growing number of phones that don’t come bundled with chargers.
