    Seriously? Wireless charging is a gimmick. Instead of being able to use your phone while it is charging, you have to keep it set down and you cannot take it off or it will stop charging.

    It's a pretty pointless feature.

    To you maybe. I don't use wireless charging either, but we live in a vast world with many differing opinions. Wireless charging is important to some people.

    But it shouldn't be a deal breaker.

    You use your phone in your sleep? I used it on my Nexus 5 and now on my note 3 and love it. Put on the charger when I go to bed no matter how tired I am and don't have to deal with wires. I also have the tylt wireless charger so it stands up a bit so if I need to check something I can.


    Maybe you should get a phone that lasts all day so you don't need to use it and charge it at the same time

    If you're sleeping, why does it matter if your phone is on a wire or not? I just find wireless charger kind of pointless. It's a cool idea, but not really practical.

    It can't since it uses a metal body.... One of the advantages of plastic is it allows it to do wireless charging

    I don't have to fuss with wires which I basically implied. You also don't have to keep and plugging in and out the cable. I actually had to do an warranty exchange on my Galaxy s2 skyrocket because the micro USB port got destroyed and had to get a new phone

    That is true. USB ports are pretty fragile.

    Fair. Right now my nexus 5 is plugged because like you said I need to use it.

    There are late nights or in my case after night shift where I just want to set it down.

    I guess what I'm saying why not have both.

    Think the metal body prevents it.

    Sure it might be a gimmick...when I had my s4 I bought the inductive battery cover and Qi charger...it was sort of neat. The one thing I didnt like though was when I put the phone on the stand (which was RIGHT near my head when I went to bed), I could hear the faint crackling of the electricity!!!

    I'd rather have a metal body than the wireless charging, any day.

    Meh metal bodies... Scratched up easily and can't replace, isn't light weight and NO wireless charging which is now a must.... Hopefully Samsung and everybody else includes it on the phone or include the back cover

    Would I like wireless charging?
    Sure why not.
    Would I base my phone buying decision on it?
    Nope.

    I can see how it's handy to protect the USB connection and so you aren't faffing about with wires in the middle of the night when you just want to go to bed.
    I guess it's easier generally during the day to just plonk it down in a charging dock/pad and let it do it's thing then grab it when you need it without the wire.

    But I still think the metal body on the M8 is one of it's unique selling points and all the better for it too!
    If it was certified waterproof then it would have been lovely... again I didn't base my phone choice on it... obviously.

    After a year or so the micro USB "jack" in the phone get's loose from plugging and unplugging every night/morning.
    Then, sometimes just a s light jiggle on the cord (when it's charging on the nightstand) means charging stops- and you have a 40% battery in the morning.
    To me, wireless would be very cool, as long as it doesn't affect other parameters of the device.

    If you think it's a gimmick you haven't used it. We have 4 wireless chargers in our house, it's a total deal breaker FOR ME.

    Wireless charging ONLY effect charging rate (slower) and if you have the Note 3 (idk if the note 2 had wireless charging since the note 3 is my first one in the series) it will prevent you from using the S-pen

    I have to say that the "scratched easily" comment is not true in my experience with the M8. I didn't use the wireless option on my last phone, ever, so I'm fine without. Would rather have the beauty of metal.
