    Very nice! I like the angle and that they got rid of the blinding ring of light. Kudos!

    I have this stand as well and it definitely does not charge the phone as fast (not even close actually) as plugging it in to the fast wireless charger. I've tried with the case on and off. Have you had this problem too?

    Will try it later haven't checked yet.

    What kind of times are you getting from 0 to 100?

    Fast Wireless charging is NOT the same as Fast Charging with a wired one. Fast Wireless is only faster than previous wireless chargers, but it's actually closer to a standard 2A wired charger.

    Here read the "Faster Charging" Section

    And here are some nifty graphics comparing charging speeds.

    It took 2 hours, 20 mins to charge from 0 to 100%

    Which is fine as I would charge it purely when I go sleep

    Are you using the wired Fast Charger plugged into the Fast Wireless charging? I have to ask, some people have been connecting it to a standard charger and the speed is noticeably slower.

    Do you have the fast charge setting switched on? The accessories option. Go to apps, settings, scroll down to accessories, make sure that it's turned on. (Fast wireless charging). Hopefully it will start working for you. Good luck

    I have the same problem and I have seen reviews of others having the issue, as well. I returned one thinking it was the charger that had the issue, since the wired fast charging is fast, but the new wireless works the same. I need to contact Samsung about it, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I have a thread in the S7 Edge parent forum from a few weeks ago about it.

    Paid $75 on BestBuy on 3/27. Model: 60-3692-05-XP

    Do you think it may not be compatible with the S7?

    Yes, and they have a flat one, too. Both have Fast Charging. Price varies from $45 on Amazon to $80 from Sprint.

    Bruins11 - I finally wrote to Samsung about it and apparently nobody else has yet, as they said they haven't heard of this problem yet. They told me to go to my carrier's local store and try charging another S7 Edge from them on my Wireless Charging Stand. I have no idea if Sprint will let me do that, but I guess I will try, since I don't know anyone else who has an S7/S7 Edge. This will rule out whether the problem is with the chargers (since this is my second because I exchanged the first one due to the charging issue) or my phone They also told me how to ship the Wireless Charging Stand to them for their people to test and check out. I think it would be worth your time to write to them, as well, since nobody else with this issue has.

    I have it on my desk at work and love it. Haven't timed it but I would say it's about as fast as a standard 2.0 amp wired charger. Plenty fast for my needs. If I need a really fast charge, I unplug the cord from the wireless stand and directly into my phone.

    Well if it's advertised as fast charging I would expect it to be close to what you'd get from charging with the cord. If you are plugging it in to get a fast charge then what is the point of having the stand?

    The point for me is that it gives me wireless charging at a convenient angle that's faster than the normal wireless chargers. Since I'm at my desk most of the time, I don't need the ultimate quick charge speed. I rarely need to unplug from the wireless stand and plug directly into the device for a quick(er) charge. As others have stated, the specifications do state that wireless quick charging is not as fast as direct quick charging. It's not a defect...it's the inherent limitations of wireless charging.

    Yours or others' needs may be different than mine.

    Hi all. Don't know if this thread is still active but I just stumbled upon it now. I bought the wirelles charging stand few days ago and really love it but since its so easy to put and take my phone on it I want to do it all the time when I'm not using it because it just seems like the best place to put my phone. So my question is will this be bad for battery in the long run or is it safe?

    Bruins11, did you ever test your wireless charger or send it to Samsung? I finally got to test mine with a family member's new Note 5 ... and it charged fast. Which is actually not good news, as that means the problem is with my S7 Edge instead of the wireless charger.

    Samsung's solution is for me to send them my phone to check out and repair, which includes them doing a hard reset on my phone. No way, it is not worth the pain of setting up my phone all over again just for the wireless charging to be faster! It took days to set up and I am still fiddling with it.
