ZloiYuri, 08 Nov 2017I can tell you why ultra-greedy oneplus pushing it's proprietary DashCharge. Do you know how m... moreFor one, it's still cheaper than Apple's fast charging brick (which is 50 bucks btw, plus another 25 bucks for a usb-c to lightning cable), and second, the dash charger still comes bundled with the phone, where as Apple still ships their iPhones with that feeble 5W wall adapter.
Instead of saying ''Our phones will be of metal only. Get over it'', you can say ''Wired charging works better'', said Carl Pei's communication consultant
Wireless charging is useless. I love that I can say that now and not be called names because the iPhone finally has it. It's still useless. It's slow and you can't use the phone when it's charging. Just plug in, it takes two seconds

He is just dancing around the subject. Really why cant we have both ? Next year when Oneplus implement wireless charge you will see him sing about all day.
Too bad. My car has one of those vent magnetic holders which includes wireless charging and I love it. I guess I'm not getting this phone then :)
Well, removable battery is better than Quick Charge but we're not getting that, are we?

I don't care about wireless or fast charging. I want my battery to last over a decade.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2017But it is useless. It's the same thing if I bought a charging dock lol Shhhh don't say those sensible things here.
It's not just about what's better, it's about having the option to choose which charging method best fits your situation. More options is always better. Plus it helps reduce wear on the USB port.
I have a Samsung S8+ and Samsung Qi charger. Charging through a thick case is slower. It is takes about 3h to fully charge it from empty.
However... Charging being slow, it *does NOT* heat the phone and it prolongs battery longevity! I'm a heavy (business) user and my battery lasts the whole day. I just put the phone on my wireless charger before I go to bed and it's full in the morning. I couldn't care less that It takes 3 hours to charge it.
So....for One+ to omit wireless charging is a *huge* mistake. I've used Wireless charging on Nexus 4 about 4 years ago. When is the right time to have wireless charging if not *now"?
Btw, unlike Qi wireless charger, One+ charger is proprietary and *expensive*!

If you never used wireless charging - don't ever say something about it. First time I used this tech when used legendary Lumia 920. You cannot even imagine how good is it when you just dput your phone to charging plate when go to sleep and don't worry you will turn to fly your phone when you hooked on charging cord in the dark. And usb connector will last much longer.
I never cared about wireless charging. It's one of those features that sound cool, makes you think you think you want it, but in reality they are useless. I am happy as long as long as I have a reversible connector, which is the standard nowadays anyway.
So. I guess it won't be IP68 certified because it's stupid to use a phone when it rains or to drop it in to the sink.
Wireless charging is quite useless thing because wireless unit needs to be connected to wall socket anyway. Not to mention that phone gets really hot that kill battery much faster than regular charger.
I can tell you why ultra-greedy oneplus pushing it's proprietary DashCharge. Do you know how much costs it's wall charger? 33.50$. Once more. THIRTY THREE DOLLARS!!! Of course this miserable company don't want to use standards in own products. 550$ for overpriced chinaphone plus 35$ for charger if you need second one, plus 30$ if you wanna car charger. And after that somebody tells Apple is greedy for it's expensive accessories. Here - pure 146% degrees distilled greed.
