    It's my understanding that the Pixel Stand will work with Samsung phones, it just won't "fast charge" with them. Apparently the Pixel Stand uses a different fast charging technology that mates with the Pixel Phone and not other phones.
    Thanks
    Still going order it

    I can tell you that since I have had the Pixel Stand I haven't used the wired charger even once. I know the Pixel Stand is slower than the wired charger, but it doesn't seem to be that much slower. And the convenience of just putting the phone on the stand while working on my PC and having it at just the right viewing angle just works. My Pixel says its at 100% without seeming slow at all. I'm always topped up with a full charge and ready to go. And to have it do everything my Google Home Mini does is absolute frosting on the cake. It's always ready when on the stand, just like my Google Mini is. I'd get the Pixel Stand again in a heartbeat!

    I agree the convenience of wireless charging, another thing if you buy another wireless charger keep in the car is Handy also just lay it down and done . I've seen people do it not the car mount just the regular wireless stand .

    The Pixel charger uses the standard Qi technology, and it works up to 10W. The phone to be charged needs to support 10W charging, otherwise, it will cut down the power and charge slower.
    The only difference with the Pixel charger is that it has a micro-chip built in which communicates with the pixel device via Bluetooth? in order to pair and activate all the 'other stuff' like google assistant, sunrise alarm, etc. It stores the settings in memory on the charger itself, and not on the phone. So for example, if you have more than one stand, you could have the sunrise alarm turned on on one and off on the other, etc.

    Good to know thanks.

    I guess Pixel Stand may not use bluetooth chip after all. It looks like it has been baked in into the same wireless charge signal transmission that enables these certain features with the pixel phones.
    Based on what I read.....
