    Curious,
    - do you own an S8/S8 Plus?
    - do you use a magnetic stand in your car?
    - do you have a piece of magnet between the case and your phone?
    - do you use wireless charging?
    - do you use Samsung Pay or Google Pay?

    If yes to all the above, do you experience any issues?
    I'm wondering if the magnet between the case and the phone, would prevent the likes of wireless charging and using Samsung/Google Pay, working properly...?

    Thoughts...

    There's another thread in this forum almost identical to this from earlier this year IIRC. I'll see if I can find it...

    Hmm, seems if one uses a magnetic car mount, it will be a chore to get the wireless charging to work. A shame; but, I understand...

    No, it can work.
    See my post at the end of this thread: https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...d.php?t=800570

    Basically keep the metal plate near the bottom of the phone and the coils will still line up with your phones internals.

    I use one and can't do the wireless charging because of it. I'm fine with that but it is a shame. S8+

    You need to put the plate near the bottom of the phone. On my S8+ with the bottom of the Spigen rectangular plate about 1.5cm from the bottom of the phone still worked. On my Note 8 almost an inch from the bottom and it works.

    Thank you zyad I just did that, even though the phone isn't in a position that will be as convenient but hopefully it will work. I don't have a cordless charger but will try it in a few weeks when I'm at my brothers (he lives in Missouri, I'm in Florida) and if it works it will be fantastic. Thanks again.
