Wired charging and not even using the fast charging is way faster than even fast wireless charging. I wish wireless charging is as fast as wired charging method, or should not produce a lot more heat. Such is not the case with the present technology - I have a fast wireless charging pad and not yielded satisfactory results. I find it such a gimmick to having people believe that it is "convenient" but it takes up to 2-4 times longer to charge, and you not using the Note8 while charging is happening. Case point: Starbucks wireless charging spots on their tables - you put down your Note8 on that spot very properly, trying to use it will have you at an awkward position to look at the screen and will charge like 8 times more since you are using it.
Regular charging at average 1.5 Ampere can charge 50% per hour (slows down towards the end of the charging session), while fast wireless charging only charges average 0.7 Ampere (slows down to 0.3 Ampere automatically when temperature reaches 38 degrees Celcius). That means wireless charging is up to 4 times SLOWER than regular wired charging, with more heat being generated in a shorter time. Heat is the number one enemy of the battery than will degrade the battery's ability to hold power. Anyone can check the temperature of the phone.
Keeping the charge up to only 80% as a max charging for the day will help the battery's health for the long term. Ideally keeping the battery's charge to 50% to 60% will even further the life of the Note8's battery up to more than 10 times battery cycle than the usual 300 to 500 charging cycles. Partial charging will help do this with charging after 10-15% being consumed which is also known as the Depth of Discharge (DoD). http://flic.kr/p/J9T9mh
Best practice that I'm doing is with a magnetically back-attaching WIRED power pack - I charge like 10-15 minutes at a time and my Note8 will remain not as thick when you take off the battery pack. http://flic.kr/p/22EoVJS
The only times I see wireless charging as useful is when you need a spark-free environment like chemical labs, or the charging port is wet.
Deepak, 11 Jul 2018Guyss please tell me which is better Galaxy note 8 or one plus 6 Please tell me in comments Well which is better in features, the Note8. Which is better pricewise, the OP6. The question is what do you look for in a phone? A load of specs unmatched by others or good and fast updates and a more affordable price? I can only tell if you go for the Note8, you'll love it. But maybe you prefer the OP6.
Tang0N0vember, 11 Jul 2018Available @ Digital Walker. ;-)As if magnetic charger doesn't use wireless charging...
TCool, 10 Jul 2018I feel sorry for you, get the fact right. I am using Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for your informatio... moreMeh slim doesn't automatically mean beautiful. I use the zerolemon 5500mah slimpower battery case. Doesn't make my note8 uber bulky but gets the job done and lets me keep away from the outlet for a couple of days. More importantly, i don't have to bring any extra devices like a power bank or rely on wireless chargers for those couple of days. All i need is my pocket. I find that loads more convenient than your preference but to each his own.
Imperator Neubaticus, 11 Jul 2018I'm gonna take a look at that magnetic charger. Thanks!Available @ Digital Walker. ;-)

I can't stress enough for real Note8 users to get even a minimal protection (skins do not count) against drops. Even if you are "very careful" and "never drop" you phone, something or someone will. Best minimal protection that I'm using is the Rhinoshield Crashguard:
It had saved my Note8 from one nasty drop from a 1-meter fall facing down.
And to charge it is the nifty Scosce 4000 mAh that magnetically attaches to the back of the Note8. Charges with 2 Ampere speed to top up you battery. Taken off after not needed any more for no bulk on the phone.
Fast wireless charging takes 3x more time to charge the same amount.
anonymous, 10 Jul 20186gb memory (ram) for phone and not 6 gb of internet data for your info Did you read the previous comment?
He said 5GB of data usage, he didn't said memory RAM.
And it is just an insult when I said 6GB of data because he cannot afford unlimited data subscription.
Read first before you react!
Tang0N0vember, 10 Jul 2018You do know I use the Note8.You use Note 3 with plastic body and no wireless charging. Cheap!
Tang0N0vember, 10 Jul 2018You do know I use the Note8.All I know is you use Note 3 only.

Our office provides free WiFi internet for all employees.
And while outside the office I have monthly unlimited data subscription, not 5GB, not 6GB it is unlimited every month.
Extended battery means you have to carry additional bulky battery with you every where.
While my wireless charging pad is stationed only in the office.
Another in the car and another at home. All I have to carry is my phone, no extra battery.

My slim Note 8 feels comfortably inside my pocket whatever I do, like sitting, squatting.
By the way, no worry in our office. I can even leave my wallet on my table and nobody will even think to touch it. We are all professionals here and we receive more than enough salary to think of stealing other people's belongings.

My Note 3 with a Zerolemon 10,000 mAh could function up to a total of 13 hours + of screen on time, up to 2 days of heavy use with more than 5 GB of data usage. http://flic.kr/p/Wixnw7
You have to have a separate power bank, a wireless charging pad at the office.
Again, i can not be charging despite heavy use. While you have to leave your phone exposed to possible theft at the office while wireless charging. I keep my mobile phone in my pocket when I don't use it.
Removable battery makes a lot more sense.

By the time I reached my office, my phone still have 95% charge and I will take it out my bag and lay it gracefully on the fast wireless charging pad without generating heat whatsoever contrary to your claim. Every time it is not use it lays comfortably on the ORIGINAL (not imitation) Samsung wireless charging pad that protects the phone from over charging without heating. By the time I will use it, the phone battery charge is full in no time. I don't need to make the acrobatic process of changing the battery and wait for some time until the phone boot. That's a waste of time. You like wasting precious time with your Note 3.
