    Hello I have a Galaxy Note 8 and a Youmaker case that allows portrait and landscape viewing, with a kickstand, sadly it doesn't allow for wireless charging, as I just recently found out. I'm looking for a replacement case that allows for wireless charging and will still allow for portrait and landscape viewing as that is something I desperately need for work daily. I've seen some people with those popsocket things that I think were able to put their phones in portrait and landscape view, but I'm not certain about that. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Popsockets are metal, so wireless charging won't work unless you put the popsocket off to a corner of the phone, which defeats the purpose. But if you look on Amazon (look for s8 case kickstand) you'll find a lot of cases with kickstands that may support portrait mode (most of them only support landscape mode).

    But there's no reason it isn't supporting wireless charging - it's advertised as supporting it (see the ad - 5th picture down on the left.) Maybe your charger is defective?

    I have a Galaxy Note 8, not an S8, as stated in my original comment. I've tested the wireless charger out without my case on and it works fine.
