    Also note that fast wireless defaults to slow wireless when the screen is on. It's a thermal protection thing.
    Hmm. I never noticed this with mine. This is what mine says when it has the screen on and is on a wireless charger:

    No problem! Let's see if I can answer it all
    1) QC and Adaptive Fast Charging are basically the same thing: Fast Charging. They're just different names given by different companies. QC, the most generic of the two, has several revisions and QC2 (currently what Samsung's AFC is based upon) is slower than QC3.
    2) USB-C will let you use Fast Charging.
    3) Wireless charging is slower than a normal, wired charger, so people tend to assume that because a wireless charger has 'fast charging' slapped on it, they'll have the same charging speeds as a wired QC or AFC charger. They won't. A Wireless Fast Charger is closer in charging speeds as a normal, non-QuickCharging 2A wired charger. So a 'Fast' wireless charger will just charge your phone like a normal charger would, just faster than a normal wireless charger would. 'True' Fast Charging can only come (right now) from wired chargers equipped to do so. The charger included with the Note 7 will be Fast-Charging-enabled.
    Great explanation but I have read that the Note 7 with the 820 SOC can do QC 3.0 but Samsung has scaled it back because the Exynos chip in the Euro model cannot do QC 3.0. They wanted everyone to have the same capabilities.

    Spookdroid, great response. Thank you for the info. Never used wireless charging but would like to use it by the bed with the N7 on the Samsung wireless fast charger at night. Is that a good idea as far as battery longevity? I like to have the battery fully charged when I leave in the morning plus would like to use the phone as a nightstand clock. Thanks

    It says that, but it's defaulting to a slower charge when the screen is on. Test it manually by observing or with an amperage app.

    Seriously? Like a measurable amount?

    And if FC isn't really great for your battery, it's QC any better?
    Quite significant. Like 1.5 to 2x faster. This is with the Samsung fast charging stand.

    I think he meant 'normal' wireless VS fast wireless.
    Here's a chart from Phandroid. Fast Wireless is closer to a 'normal' wired one.

    The S7 Line defaults to 'standard' charging speeds when the screen is on to avoid overheating. Fast Charging only kicks in when the screen is off. Also, remember that the fastest charging rate occurs in the first 50% of the battery; after that it exponentially slows down and becomes pretty much 'standard' for the last 10 or 15 percent.

    Shouldn't worry about it. Like we said, the chargers are protected and the phone (see response above) will 'slow down' the charge towards the end.

    I care mainly about 25-75/80% since that is enough for me. That chart proves my point... The wired is about 1.5 to 2x faster than the fast wireless charging. The chart shows roughly 70-75% faster charging from 25% to 75%.

    Just wanted to reiterate what the OP stated too - Samsung Fast Wireless Charger for Note7 (as well as S7 and S7 Edge) from Samsung $69.95, from AT&T $69.95, from Verizon $69.95 but same Samsung charger from Amazon $46.78! Substantial savings!

    Sadly mine is the low one .. or well flat one. I want a standing one though. Seems convenient!

    If you happen to have a Best Buy nearby, they will price match Amazon. Just be sure it says it's in stock and it is shipped and sold by amazon.

    For 50 bucks (or 70 if you go for retail price)? No thanks. The only reason I have wireless chargers (and I do admit they are convenient) is because they were free with some Samsung promo, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten them.

    Well as for the regular fast charging pads (flat ones) I got them from Samsung due to the discount code and they had them on BOGO for the S7 Edge so I got one for like .. $15-20 .

    Anyone that has used the fast wireless charger us it any good or worth it? I'm coming from a note 3 so haven't had one yet.

    I know best buy price matches amazon and can get it for 42 bucks but before I pull the trigger wanted feedback on them

    Thanks in advance
    I have on the Note 5. It's pretty fast. I hear the USC charge is even faster on the Note 7.

    Is the wireless charger that weird brick case from the mkbhd video or is that optional? I never used wireless charging on my Nexus 4, but if I were to get a note 7 and it could charge wirelessly and fast then it might be worth considering, especially for work.

    This is the Samsung Fast Wireless Charger, if that is what you are asking about. I have a few, they work well.

    When you say well....can you give some detail? You might be the deciding factor of me getting one.
