Which Samsung Galaxy Will Work with Fast Charge Wireless Charging?

With wireless charging you don’t have to fiddle around with wires and cords, and fast wireless charging is even better.

So keep in mind there’s regular wireless charging and fast charge wireless charging.

Fast wireless charging can charge your phone 1.4 times faster than conventional plug-in. Here’s a list of Samsung Galaxy phones compatible for fast charge:

  • Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
  • Galaxy S7
  • Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Galaxy S8
  • Galaxy S8 Plus
  • Galaxy Note 5

Though battery-saving modes can be used, battery charging will always be a necessity—and today, the most convenient and fastest possible way of phone battery charging is the future.

(Skip to bottom for list of Samsung phones not compatible with fast charge, but still able to charge wirelessly.)

Are there fast charge wireless chargers out there in the market such as the Futura X Turbo that fast charges the Galaxy S8 and previous models?

Yes, however, taking a closer look, one discovers some eyebrow-raising characteristics that will make you whip out your hand sanitizers and think twice about cost-value proposition for some brands.

One Fast Charge Wireless Charging Device in Current Market Not “the Future”

One (unnamed) charging pad is a bulky moving contraption that appears to have taken steps backwards in time.

It weighs half a pound and contains inside it a fan that many say isn't necessary. Its not-so-friendly travel size is due also to the fact that it's a lay-down pad that transforms to a desktop stand.

For the price, the mechanics of such dual mode could have been designed for smoother and better maneuverability: the transitioning between modes feels like the equivalent of handling cassette tapes or Nintendo cartridges from the 80s.

If you prefer the style of Apple-like designs; simplicity, elegance, modern functionality; there are quality fast chargers and stands that are more affordable and better made for today's consumer who values the minimalist yet high standard approach to form & function.

Potential Smelly or Sanitary Issue for Exterior Material of Wireless Charging Pads

Aesthetically, the material and fabric of wireless chargers can mimic the look and feel of something nice (nice jacket, nice chair, nice bag) but there’s one potentially huge unnoticed aspect.

Material that absorbs outside odor.

If it absorbs odor, it absorbs bacteria and other things.

In this respect, a wireless charging pad made of acrylic or the like is better for easy cleaning. We’re already touching our phones all day and pressing it on our faces. We don’t need another object to multiply germs.

(Also, if you have a cat or dog that likes to snag, make sure it's claw-proof.)

Aside: Samsung DeX Not Also a Wireless Charger

As a brief aside, it’s worth mentioning that battery charging is not in the Samsung DeX Station; many voiced this because it so could have been, and, it looks like it would also be a wireless charging mount.

Fast Charge Wireless Charging Pad for Androids

The Futura XFutura X Turbo and Prelude are not bulky or clunky, and are easily cleanable; with no wear-and-tear damage to your lightening connector, this is a huge plus to wireless charging.

For a fast charge wireless charger that’s easily sanitized but also slim, light weight, sleek and elegant, the Futura X Turbo is an excellent find. Especially for the price.

The Futura X Turbo charges your phones with the Quick Charge 2A adapter, up to 1.4 times faster than conventional plug-in charging.

Sweet Spot Self-Aligning Feature for Smartphone Users Coming Soon

Android users may need good hand-eye coordination and some patience to align their phones on the sweet spot to charge up their phones.

 

Many phones and wireless charging pads have no easy guide to help you align to the exact spot and keep your phone stay put for charging.

As a solution to this problem, BEZALEL has made special adhering patches for Android phones, so they will have the magnetic alignment feature (which already is part of the Latitude case for iPhones.) This will be available soon.

Samsung Users without Fast Charging Phones Can Still Have Wireless Charging Experience

Both the Futura X and Futura X Turbo wireless charging pads are designed to tightly stick to BEZALEL’s stand for desktop use (and is easily cleanable: aluminum.) It's strong, well-constructed and shaped like a mini easel. Super cool and fitting for the sleek looks of tech gear. 

 

Here’s a list of Galaxy phones that come Qi-enabled for (regular) wireless charging. Just like the Futura X Turbo, the Futura X is great for indoors, office or home use:

  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Active
  • Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
  • Galaxy S7
  • Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Galaxy S8
  • Galaxy S8 Plus
  • Galaxy Note 5
