I don’t see the fuss over wireless charging

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Wireless charging - what’s the great “benefit” from a system where you have a pad that charges your phone **slower** due to coupling losses, than if you’d just plugged it into a cable? Also, you have to position the phone PRECISELY or the induction coils will be misaligned, and you can’t use your device - pick it up and make a call, et cetera, as it’s charging (obviously).

As was the case with NFC, about 7 years ago, and how (mainly) the Android ✌️“Community”✌️obsessed over it just for the sake of doing so (and using it as a reason to deride Apple for not implementing it 🙄), it seems like another fad wave which the net is riding, and apart from the ✌️“”inconvenience”✌️(? 🤣🤨) of plugging in a wire, what is the benefit?

Oh and let’s cancel out all nonsense comments about water and dust ingress. People will always find another way to damage their phone - ALWAYS. They drop them, sit on them, lose them… I don’t see a tiny socket as much of a problem.

Consumer technology circles seem to love to obsess over the latest gimmick, and it seems that rarely is any deep, high quality critical and objective thinking applied. I can understand electric toothbrushes having needed to use this for years - it’s a safety issue - but this? Hah!! Piffle.

Wow, you lasted two whole days before creating another ranting thread.

Wireless charging is convenient and works reasonably well.  If you don't like it - don't use it. It is as simple as that.

Don’t be a troublemaker. I’m not “ranting”, this is a genuine topic and I’m curious as to what the fuss is about.

Don’t stir up unrest, that’s not nice. If you’re at a loose end, why not do something apart from “policing” the internet? I could comment on your posts, but I lack the will to do so - I don’t let people steal my peace - what you post is your concern, and if the mods take issue with you, that’s a personal issue between you folks.

Take care.

There is not "fuss". It is a technology that many people find useful, so manufactures put it into the devices. If you personally don't find it useful - good for you, you can forget that it exists. You are not losing anything because my charging is less efficient than it could be.

Your approach to things can be applied to literally anything and it is not productive. What is the fuss with TV remove controls? Is it hard to go to the TV and switch channels? Only wasting more plastic on making those remotes. And you can lose them easily.

Leave the thread that you deem unworthy of time investment, then. If it’s not to your taste, feel welcome to spend energy more productively on topics you like. You’re not spoiling my day, I reject your negativity - spread it elsewhere, keep off my threads, please.
