The magnetic field might screw up things? I don't know, I'm asking this.

I'm only curious as samsung has the intention of providing this feature, i've been using wireless charging for a good 3+years with gs3, gs4, note 2 and now note 3, all without any problem.

You can buy a wireless charging back from Samsung (doesn't come standard though).

It's samsung's way of making more money, i prefer a receiver insert, it's thinner and i've been using them with all my phones.

I will be picking a few up in the next few days in china, need to check what the quality is like.

Really??? I got one for my S4 and it was awful - so thick that the case bulged out in the middle of the back...so much that the phone didn't lay flat on the table anymore.

Even though the Samsung battery cover is a little thicker overall, at least it's symmetrical and doesn't look home-made.
I can either be 'smart' or I can be 'pretty'; today, we're going with 'pretty.'
