[Q] NFC not working when using official S Charger Cover
I bought my Galaxy S4 1 1/2 weeks ago and already spend something like 100€ on accessories.
My first NFC-Tags (1k mifare classic) had to go back because they won't work (had the original cover on my S4 at that time)
Then i ordered the original "S Charger Pad" and "S Charger Cover" and some days later NTAG203-stickers.
I just love the ability to charge it wireless. When the new NFC-stickers arrived none of them were recognized.
My Xperia Z tablet had no problems with them.
For some reason i removed the "S Charger Cover" from my phone and voila ... it worked.
Also no problems with the original, flexible cover, but with the charger-cover ... i can rub the stickers all over the back - nothing happens.
In a german android bulletin-board some ppl told me, that they don't have any problems with S4 + Charger cover + NFC.
I contacted the Samsung-Support and they told me, that my problem is very common and that the qi-copper-coil in the cover prevents nfc from working.
So what is it now? NFC is not working for me and Samsung tells me, that this is normal.
But on the other hand there are tests of the cover and other people telling me, that it works.
Does anybody here have a clue, what could be wrong here ?
- Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 (Android 4.2.2), original battery, no root
- original S Charger Cover (EP-P100IEWEGWW) bought from Amazon (manufact date 2013-06-19)
- NTAG203 Stickers
- when i lift the lower end of the cover about 1cm it works
