First off, I had the regular s-view non wireless cover, and this is definitely thicker in the back. This makes me believe that the regular wireless charging back will be thicker than the stock one as well.

The front flap on the wireless cover stays shut, whereas the older non-wireless cover had a problem with the flap. Other than that, the same material and build quality.

As for the charging pad, it's very nice.. small and compact. Uses regular micro-USB. So far speeds are quick. About 1 percent per 1 minute. Not bad at all.

I bought them both at my local Verizon store. They had a promotion, and got $30 bucks off the total. So both items were $89.

Hello ,
thanks for this interesting review !
Can you post a photo to see the difference of thickness betwen the wireless and the non wireless s view cover ?

What material is used on the top part of the charger, is it hard plastic or soft leather type material.


Thanks

S view looks good, but a battery cover without the s view flip cover will last longer.

Why is the pad smaller than the phone itself? Doesn't the phone tip right off?

also, can you post comparison shots between wireless and non-wireless?

Many transmitter on the market are smaller than the phone itself, you just lay the phone in the middle.

Thumbs up
So you got this at your local Verizon store? Did they have the regular charging backs as well? I'm surprised that you got the Mini Charger dock as they are STILL not available online yet.

Angry BOOM! Ordered!
Just ordered... Online $69.00 for both through Verizon and Overnight Shipping Free! Thanks to my employer discount! Can't wait to get tomorrow although I hate that Verizon ships Overnight and requires signature??? Yes Verizon no one in the world works and we can be home to sign for a package at any point of the day....
