    I am looking at getting a S5 Neo, but getting conflicting reports whether you can "add" wireless capabilities into this via a wireless charger transmitter?

    Please can you advise, or can you only do that on the S5?

    Which is the better option in peoples opinion, the original S5, or the S5 Neo, which I undertsand does not have all the features of the original?

    You cannot Wireless Charge on the Neo. Both are similar specced, but the Neo has an Exynos 7580 Processor, whilst the S5 has the Snadragon 801.

    I'd go for the S5.

    The original S5 is better.

    Hey all,
    The standard S5 has 5 or 6 connection tabs on the back of it, however 3rd party wireless charge receivers only use the bottom 2 horizontal connections.

    The S5 NEO has 2 connections in a very similar spot, it really looks like it may be for QI charging, but they are vertical. Does anybody know what these are? Are they power inputs? Antenna connections?

    Samsung has made it so the neo supports wireless charging but they didn't make a pad and third party manufacturers dont bother to making one for the neo so unless you can make your own you wont be able to get a wireless charging pad for s5 neo.
