Hi guys, i have been a supporter of the whole qi idea ever since i got a lumia windows phone a while ago that had qi factory fitted. Unfortunately I hated windows phone operating system lol.
I decided to go back to android and after a 3 week nightmare with a Sony m2 that i eventually returned to the retailer after having had a row with Sony support and having 2 replacement handsets which both had different faults
I ended up going for the moto g 4g.
I have to admit that my phone can suffer from abuse / hard life due to my job and being in / out of my pocket in dusty places so I always like to have a decent flip case to try protect the phone. The problem had was that when I put the micro usb receiver inside the back (stuck to the battery) my charger didnít detect it, i assume it was just too far away being inside the back and then shrouded by the flip case too. After a bit of disappointment and a few beers I decided to experiment and took a good sharp knife to the flip case, carefully cutting a receiver sized chunk out of the inside of case. it took a bit of time and care but I managed not to cut all the way through the case and just create a space for the receiver and thankfully i found it now works a treat
. I donít often use the usb socket and never take the phone out of its flip case so this solution suits me very nicely and on the rare occasions i do need to use the usb its easy enough to get the qi usb plug out anyway. maybe this idea could help others who come across the same issue.
Ps kudos to Shadow_2k for discovering and pointing out that wireless charging only works with a lock screen, i didnít know at first and thought I had got a doggy qu receiver
