    Even though the Samsung sales assistant at BBY did not know anything about Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge compatibility, reviews here clued me in that this unit would not give me the crazy fast charging that the wired plugin charger provides. I bought it anyway and am very glad I did. It comes with a new Samsung fast charging power adapter to use with the wireless charging platform or by itself when you when you just want to plug it into the phone or use as a spare for the original that came with your phone. That's at least a $20 value. The wireless stand is not as fast as the wired setup - maybe 60% as fast - it tells you exactly how long to a full charge (it also does not get as warm during a charge). In my car I use a fast cigarette lighter USB connector with a fast USB cable to the phone. For normal use, it is much more convenient to just place the phone on the wireless stand and forget it for the moment. It works every time, without having to fine tune just where on the stand it sits, and the lights give you instant status of the charging process. When you need the phone, it's there for you, probably charged as much as you wanted. You can always put it back on the wireless charger when you're done for the moment. People who complained about the bright lights are owls. We always have some safety lighting on, anyway, and don't even notice it. NOTE: The charging speed with an S7 phone is faster than the S6, as per Samsung advertising. I feel this charging stand is an ideal compromise between speed and temperature buildup (download the GSam battery app for Android to monitor battery temperature and charging behavior of your cell phone - it's amazing and should be on every phone, especially with what has been happening on the now discontinued Samsung Note 7 model). The price Samsung charges is high, but I waited until I had another Best Buy Program coupon waiting to be spent. In summary, this is a high quality product. Get a second one for at work. I had to chuckle at the comment by someone here, who felt the charger is not wireless if you have to plug it in. How else would the electricity go into the charger? With a wireless wireless charger, I suppose.

    This product was delivered to me today. It was shipped quickly even though I bought it on Thanksgiving and shipping volumes are high this time of the year. I got the product on sale for $29.99 (well off the regular every-day price) and definitely feel that it was money well-spent. The product is plug and play. It's that simple. Once you place your device on the wireless charging stand the indicator light on the stand lights up, and the device immediately begins to charge. It's pretty hard to screw this up, folks. I just put my phone on the stand (not worrying about specific placement) and it was easily recognized. The wireless charging stand does have the words 'fast charge' inscribed on it. However, unless you have a S6 Edge or newer Samsung model, you will not get a 'fast charge'. I have a regular S6 and I knew about this before I bought the product because I did my homework. Some people (particularly on Amazon where this product is also sold) have lamented this product as being a horribly slow charger. I guess it depends upon your definition of 'slow'. With the regular charger that came with my S6, my phone charges about 40% in 45 minutes. With this wireless charging stand my phone charged just shy of 40% after 1 hour of charging (with the phone off). So sure, it charges a bit slower. I guess I don't really care. To me, having the ability to set the phone down on the stand, and wirelessly charge it, without fiddling with the charging cable is well worth dealing with the extra charge time. I'm not the type to let my phone drain down to nothing before I charge it though. That may be another factor why I really don't care that the phone only charges about 40% / hour. It's probably something I will use for overnight charging anyway. One last thing... yea... it comes with a Samsung white charger cable. I don't know why people care so much about it. The cord is behind the charger (and likely your desk/cabinet too).... who cares what color it is. If it bothers you, buy the white version of this wireless charging stand product! :)

    First and foremost - while this is a wireless fast charger, keep in mind that wireless charging is still slower than wired charging. Probably not a big deal if you're charging overnight or at your desk at work, but just be aware that it's not as fast. In the case of my Note 7, when the status bar told me it would take approximately an hour to charge via a wired connection, the same status bar told me wireless charging would take about an hour and 50 minutes. I really like the basic design of this charging stand. The vertically angled pad means I can keep it on my night stand and use my phone as a clock (or thanks to iHeartRadio or a podcasting app, a clock radio). This is a much nicer design than the basic pad - which leaves the phone facing straight up to the ceiling. If you don't care about being able to see the face of your phone while it's charging, however, I don't think the addition price for this charger will be worth it. To me, it definitely was. A couple of relatively minor complaints about this charger: I could find no way to turn off the obnoxious blue "charging" LED or the bright green "charged" LED without removing my phone from the charger. This left me with a blue or green tinted bedroom at night since I placed it in my night stand. Also - I couldn't find a way to get my Note 7 to display the "always on" screen when the phone was turned to landscape mode. This meant that the phone always had to be set on the cradle with a portrait orientation if I wanted to be able to read the screen. Maybe I missed a setting somewhere that would allow landscape mode? Minor complaints aside, If you're looking for the fastest wireless charging and want to be able to see your phone while it's charging, I definitely recommend it.

    So far, works great with iPhone X & a pop socket

    Debated whether to get a wireless fast charger at all. Yes, you still have to have the charger plugged in to outlet, or with this brand, also have the option of USB so can plug in to laptop or desktop. Other brands are hard wired, so you can't do that. Even though some reviews said you can't use with a pop socket, YES you can. Yes you can also with a case like Tech and Spec.... It is more difficult to place phone upright and it stay on the "ledge" at bottom but still possible...but the easier solution is to place phone upside down. But then, for those who want to "view" the phone while charging, of course you would not like phone upside down. With it locked, if you do keep upright (with a little adjusting to stay on the ledge) if you used finger to swipe, etc. it would definitely fall off the charger. As far as putting landscape way, it does fall with a pop socket on. So far, I don't know answer to how fast it charges because I have been using this overnight. BUT, I had read some people saying the light turns from blue to green and this model -it stayed blue and instructions don't mention the light changes. Also, some said it goes to a trickle charge when fully charged and no where does it mention that in the little paper you get in the box. Over all, just saves you having to keep reusing the phone port to plug in.

    The ability to wirelessly charge my Galaxy S8 is definitely more convenient, even though it it probably a tad bit slower than if you actually connect it via hard-wire to charge. But I bought this so I can just lay my phone in it when I go to sleep at night to be able to wake up and it's 100% charged, so it really didn't matter to me that it was a little slower than charging by wire. Only thing I didn't like is I thought it had the ability to change it from the "standing" position so you can lay it flat in order to just put your phone on top of it at night time. This particular model doesn't break apart or disassemble or break into two so you can't do it with this one. You ALWAYS have to charge it in "standing up" mode. However, it figures, but a couple of days after I purchased this,, Samsung came out with a NEWER very similar model, but with this one you CAN break it apart so you can charge it standing up OR laying flat. This model will ONLY charge standing up. But either way, I'm totally satisfied with it. Eventually I'll get the newer model so I can leave it on my nightstand at home so I can just lay my phone "flat" on top of it to charge while I sleep. I can then take THIS one to work with me so it charges at the same time it is standing up so I can "see it" and somewhat still be able to work with it in the "standing" mode. Sorry for too much info, but overall, it does the job and what it's meant to do and I'm totally satisfied with my purchase.

    I bought this thanks to Best Buys great price match guaranty! I love being able to set my phone on this wireless charging pad instead of having to plug in a cable to charge it (yah such a chore hehe) The charger could use a bigger lower ledge to make it a little easier to set your phone on. It may works o.k. with my S7 EDGE without a case but takes a little more effort with the Speck candyshell case on. The angle of the stand is good so you can see your display. It would be nice if it was able to lay flat as well as it would make it easier to put the phone on it. It charges my S7 EDGE pretty fast though I have not sat there and timed it or compared it to the standard usb charger. Phone does get quite a bit warmer but expected that due to it's wireless charging. Charger itself stays fairly cool. The led status light is really bright and will light up a small room with the lights off so you may want to block it if that sort of thing bothers you? Overall I'm happy with this purchase.

    I love these wireless charging stands. I bought two and am about to buy a third for my office. As amazing as Qi wireless charging is, the fast charge feature is even more so, as I've been able to charge my Note 7 from 60% to 100% in less than an hour. Because of the efficiency of this unit, I have yet to plug my "new non-exploding" Note 7 into the USB C port to charge it. I have a couple of the older (flat, but similar in design) Samsung non-fast charging plates. At times, I'd hastily place my phone on the old charger, only to find out that the phone didn't charge because I didn't place it "sweet spot." By comparison, the titled design and lip at the bottom of this unit ensures the phone is always firmly on the charging.plate. Even better, the upright placement improves my ability to use my phone as an alarm clock - I can glance at my nightstand and there it is. Although it's a little pricey, this is a great product that I highly recommend to take full advantage of wireless charging.

    Quick charge and a stand make it usable

    I have a 1 year old Samsung wireless charger that is flat that does not have the "quick charge" feature and I have a less expensive wireless charger with a stand that I purchased on Amazon. Both of them fail to compare to this one. I now have 4 of them around the house so I don't have to worry about not having enough USB C cables. This charger comes with a quick charge plugin. It's imperative that you use one or another Quick Charge capable plugin or you will get something slightly slower than slow charge. How fast does it charge? My estimate is that it charges each 1% about 10-15 seconds slower than using a cable. So during most of the charge it can charge about 1% every 70 seconds or so. If you've never used a wireless charger the "contacts" need to come relatively close in order for it to charge. From experience, the Note 7, Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge will match without effort 90% of the time. If you own a Nexus 6 or probably any phone with a rounded back that accepts a wireless charge it does not work well. The angle of the charger allows the Samsung phones that I have used to sit confidently and they do not fall off. Last thing, for some reason Samsung put a very bright forward facing blue LED on the charger. It doesn't bother me but it will bother some people at night if you use it near your bed. The charger also has a fan. Again, it doesn't bother me and I can barely hear it. The fan turns off when the phone is charged. For clarity, my overly sensitive girlfriend hasn't noticed it has a fan yet. So that tells me it is very quiet.
