I think it's ridiculous that you pay this much for device's and they give you a garbage box that the device comes in , like what's next a paper bag lol. Bad enough no dongles, charging bricks ,extra nibs for spen cases,screen protector etc..
These are expensive device that should come with better presentation.

This doesn't bother me. If it has a cool box I may think "oh, that's a cool box" for 30 seconds and then it gets shoved aside because the thing I care about is what's inside. Either way you're either going to throw it away or put it in a cupboard and never look at it again until it comes time to sell the device or you need a cable lol.

There could be more stuff actually IN the box though.

I don't care so much about the quality of the box, but the contents (or lack thereof) is a joke. My man Flossy brings this up in almost every review and he's spot on! Apple, Samsung, Google all cheaping out treating us like fools feeding us the BS that it's for the environment. Meanwhile there's many budget phones that still come with the charger, a dongle or headphones and sometimes a case. It's sad when you get more with some $500 or sub $500 devices than you do with the top tier "big boys".

120w charger
Cable
Silicon case
Factory fitted screen protector
