    I'd like to see the connections for wireless charging to see if I will be able to implant the palm touchstone charging coil, like I have for the gs3. The reviews have pretty well panned the GS4 native wireless charger, but I am quite happy with my palm implant to the gs3.

    The one on the left if the official wireless cover, the one on the right is the one without it

    Excellent, thank you. I can see the connections in the upper right of the wireless cover and will undoubtedly be able to implant the palm coil with a minimum of fuss. Oh boy.

    What sucks is Samsung should have integrated the S-View cover with the wireless charging battery door for $60 that would drive wireless charger sales. As it is if you buy this battery door you can't buy one of the flip covers. Bad move Samsung, bad move.

    Sorry, but do all models come with wireless charging connections? If not, which do?

    It's a backplate you have to buy separately.

    Well, all the models have to have the connections for the back cover to work The S3 has the connections even though they never came out with the charger. On the s3 I just have the charging coil taped inside a regular cover.

    Why did they not just include the coil stock? It's so easy and cheap.

    Money. They want more money and the carriers want to be able to up charge for wireless charging. Its stupid, it should just be built in.

    But then you get phones like the Lumia 920 where it's built in but you have to buy the special pad to use it. Companies aren't going to stop nickel and diming until we reach a space and time where wireless charging should be standard, and I think that's coming real soon. I still think wireless charging is a gimmick personally, I don't see the difficulty in plugging a connector into a wall. But I guess I get the whole technology progression thing.

    Its not the plug into the wall, its the plug into the phone. Its incredibly convenient to be able to set the phone on the touchstone and do a charge, especially when I am 'on-call.' I can keep the phone full and still just pick it up to answer a call. The touchstone also sends it into docked mode, so the time/temp etc is nicely displayed while charging.
