Default Wireless charging

So what's your guys opinion on our two options to enable wireless charging

The official Samsung cover adds some substantial bulk to the phone. The other option is something like the qi pad from Tylt that you simple stick under the batery cover with no added bulk.

Does anyone know if one charges the phone fast or anything like that.

Discuss thanks

Not sure what bulk you are referring to? Pretty sure the charge isn't affected more in either case..

Also, this should be moved to Q&A
Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 ROOTED
ROM: Wizzle ROM
KERNEL:Stock
RECOVERY:SafeStrap 3.75


Galaxy S4
ROM: Eclipse ROM
KERNEL: KToonez
RECOVERY: TWRP 2.5


Before asking a question, use this:

Look at the official Samsung back. The back as a whole becomes flush with the camera lens. It appears to be even a bit taller than the camera lens. That's quite a bit of added thickness to the phone imho

The wireless charging back does add several millimeters of thickness to the phone. It is apparently enough that standard cases will not fit. I'm waiting on mine to come in, but OP, here is a long thread discussing options.

You may also look in the accessories section for options.
