What is the point of wireless charging?
Maybe it's just me, but I don't understand the fuss about wireless charging. Why did Nokia choose this function to focus on in their marketing? I cannot understand why no one is commenting on this. Please, if I am wrong, someone correct me on my argument below. I don't actually own a charging plate, so maybe I don't fully GET the benefits of using one. Anyway...
In my opinion, there's very little difference between so-called wireless charging and conventional charging, . You still need a wire. The Fatboy pillow charger etc, needs a wire. That means you are still restricted with regard to your chosen location of charging. There are no less wires. The phone doesn't suddenly charge ten times faster on a charging plate. What is the fuss about. I am all for improvement in technology in terms of enhancement of user experience.
Yes, we hope that one day, tube/ train arm rests, car dashboards or plane seats (for example) might have charging plates built-in, so we can charge whilst we're on the move. However, right now, it really does all seem like a bit of gimmickry
