    Default Can anyone recommend a case that works with slightly thicker wireless charging back?

    The Samsung wireless charging back increased the thickness slightly so the Note 3 no longer seats well in cases I've tried the Spigen Neo Hybrid Case and the Seidio Surface. I've used a Bear Motion Bumper Ring case but is a bit bulky / ugly and I've tried using a wireless charging pad instead of the OEM charging back which is thinner but found it interfered with the compass. Has anybody found a solution / combination that they are happy with? Thanks in advance

    I am using the fonesalesman card with otterbox commuter, as the wireless back was too thick and eliminated case options. Compass and NFC working fine in the case.

    They're cheap enough, you may want to give the fonesalesman card with nfc chip a try.

    Do you know if it interferes with the compass? I've used the Choetech one and if you have the GPS status app running and you wave the charger card to the right of the camera on the back you can see the compass deflecting. This doesn't happen with the Samsung OEM charging back.

    Are you referring to running the compass app while placing the phone on the charger? If that is your question, then yes it interferes but when I'm using the compass, the app you posted or any other nav it works fine while not charging. My charger is on my nightstand so nav. while charging is a non issue for me. Hope that helps.

    No, off of charger, wave the card to the right of the camera you will see the compass deflecting. I've been having trouble using Google Navigation when at walking speeds compass is inaccurate, Once going at automobile speeds GPS takes over and points to the correct direction. Must admit though that even with wireless charging card out it is better but still having trouble with compass. I think it's a Samsung thing.

    Ok then I have to say no. My compass and the one you just posted are working perfectly with my card in. Im not waving it around the back but it is working perfectly with it in the phone.

    I use the Trident Kraken ams case. It fits pretty well with the Wireless charging back, except that the USB charging flap doesn't close all the way
