    After watching this video I started thinking little about it. Huge percent of our technology today is made in China. From cheap things that will stop working after 2 weeks, all the way to high-end stuff.
    What is the ultimate price for having top smartphone? Are we consumers first or citizens of the world? Do we even care for things like this?
    Does our favorite brand do things like others?
    Please watch video and post your opinions.

    interesting OP, makes you think twice definitely. And if it's true, I would be pretty peeved!

    It would cost a smartphone US$1.00 more for a Benzene free factory.

    Smartphone is just one of the many products that uses Benzene. Go to your local Walmart and dollar stores. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of products that contained harmful chemical substances. The point is where do you begin to eradicate such issue that seems so simple yet gets complicated when you take a step back. Blame it on greed, blame it on the extinction of middle class, blame it on the culture of consumerism, blame it on politics, blame it on overpopulation. As a species, we are going to extinct the way the dinosaurs did. We have done irrepairable damages to our environment. At some point the earth will not be able to sustain our way of life. The advancement of technology do not benefit the sustainability of this planet, rather an indulgence to human lifestyles.
