Backs of the Huawei P30 Pro, Google Pixel 3, and Samsung Galaxy S10

Phones with wireless charging are cool. The technology saves you the hassle of dealing with pesky cables — just drop it on a pad and watch everything light up. However, there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind. Wireless charging usually takes longer than using a cable and makes phones difficult to use while charging.

Wireless charging is mainly available on high-end phones with glass backs — metal and wireless charging don’t mix. Not every flagship has the technology, but more and more manufacturers are hopping on the bandwagon. Phones with the feature either support the PMA or Qi standard, although Qi is the more popular choice. So, without further ado here are the best phones with wireless charging capabilities.

Best phones with wireless charging:

Editor’s note: We will update this list regularly as new devices with wireless charging launch.

1. Huawei P30 Pro

Huawei P30 Pro screen - Best phones with wireless charging

The P30 Pro impresses with its incredibly versatile camera setup, featuring four sensors on the back. It does wonders in low-light scenarios and gives you plenty of versatility thanks to its wide-angle and 5x telephoto lenses.

The P30 Pro supports wireless charging as well as reverse wireless charging.

The phone looks gorgeous, sporting a much smaller notch than its predecessor and thinner bezels all around. Like the Mate 20 Pro, it comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner and wireless charging. It even supports reverse wireless charging.

The phone is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset and sports a 6.47-inch display that’s curved on the sides. Other specs and features include IP68 water and dust resistance, up to 512GB of storage expandable via Huawei’s proprietary Nano Memory card, and a massive 4,200mAh battery. The phone is available in Europe and many other regions, but was unfortunately not released in the US. And since it was released before the Huawei ban debacle, future software updates are expected to be unaffected.


Huawei P30 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.47-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Kirin 980
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 128/512GB
  • Cameras: 40, 20, and 8MP + ToF
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,200mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


2. Samsung Galaxy S10 series

Samsung Galaxy S10 front - Best phones with wireless charging

All three Galaxy S10 phones — the Galaxy S10 Plus, S10, and S10e — supports wireless charging. What’s more, they all feature what Samsung calls Wireless PowerShare, allowing them to double as a charger for other wireless charging devices.

Editor's Pick

The Plus model offers the most of the three Galaxy S10 phones, sporting the largest display and battery as well as two front-facing cameras. It also comes with three rear cameras, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and an IP68 rating, all of which are available on the regular S10 as well.

Those looking for a budget Samsung flagship should go with the Galaxy S10e, which sports the smallest display and comes with two rear cameras instead of three. It also doesn’t have a curved screen or an in-display fingerprint scanner. But it does have the same chipset, plenty of RAM, and is resistant to water and dust. All three models support expandable storage and come with a headphone jack on board. They are among the best phones with wireless charging you can get.

  • Display: 5.8-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: SD 855 or Exynos 9820
  • RAM: 6/8GB

3. Samsung Galaxy Note 10/Note 10 Plus

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Aura Glow back head on

Although the new Galaxy Note 10 line wasn’t met with the same enthusiasm as the Note 9, the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus are still some of the best phones on the market. They not only sport wireless charging, but reverse wireless charging — ideal for keeping the battery of wireless headphones and smartwatches full on the go. But this is far from the only thing that makes the latest Samsung devices special.

Editor's Pick

The Galaxy Note 10 has great specs with 8GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage and the Plus is even better with 12 GB of RAM, 256 or 512GB of storage. Both devices sport the latest Exynos or Snapdragon processor depending on your region. The S Pen has also received significant upgrades, as has the look of the Galaxy Note.

You can now find it in four gorgeous gradient colors — Aura Glow, Aura White, Aura Black and Aura Blue. The large displays and massive 3500 or 4,300mAh batteries are also a boon. You can’t go wrong with the Galaxy Note 10 line.


Samsung Galaxy Note 10 specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, QHD
  • SoC: SD 855 or Exynos 9825
  • RAM: 8GB

4. Google Pixel 3/3 XL

google pixel 3 - Best phones with wireless charging

Not only are the Pixel 3 and 3 XL among the best phones with wireless charging, they are also on our list of the best phones you can currently get. They support fast wireless charging — 10W — with the help of the Pixel Stand, which is sold separately. While on the stand, the Pixel 3 can turn on the Do Not Disturb mode automatically at night, transform into a photo frame, and more.

Editor's Pick

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are very similar in terms of specs. They both come with the Snapdragon 845 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 64/128G of storage under the hood. You’ll also find the same 12.2MP camera on both devices, which takes fantastic photos.

The biggest difference between the two is the display. The Pixel 3 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display, while the one on the XL model comes in at 6.3 inches, offers Quad HD+ resolution, and has a notch. You can also find both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL at discounted prices with the Pixel 4 launch approaching.


Pixel 3 specs:

  • Display: 5.5-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB

5. Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Huawei Mate 20 Pro wirelessly charging up the Google Pixel 3 - Best phones with wireless charging

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro supports 15W wireless charging and was the first phone on the market to support reverse wireless charging. That means you can use it as a wireless charger by placing any Qi-compatible phone on its back.

The handset sports an in-display fingerprint scanner, has a massive battery, and comes with 3D facial recognition.

The Mate 20 Pro is aimed at demanding users, offering a large 6.39-inch display, the Kirin 980 chipset, and as much as 8GB of RAM. It has three cameras at the back, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a 4,200 battery. It even has 3D facial recognition.

The phone has a premium design with its glass back and a metal frame and comes in a variety of eye-catching colors. Unfortunately, it wasn’t released in the US. It’s on sale in a lot of regions, including Europe, where pricing differs from country to country. Its successor, the Mate 30 Pro, has already been released, but we don’t recommend buying it because it doesn’t offer Google apps and services. If you want a high-end Huawei phone but don’t like the P30 Pro, this is your best bet.


Huawei Mate 20 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.39-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Kirin 980
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 40, 20, 8MP
  • Front camera: 24MP
  • Battery: 4,200mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie


6. Xiaomi Mi 9

Xiaomi Mi 9 - Best phones with wireless charging

Next on our list of the best phones with wireless charging is the Xiaomi Mi 9, which offers great value for money — check pricing via the button below. It features the Snapdragon 855 chipset, three rear cameras, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. It also has an eye-catching design and is made of glass and metal.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 supports fast wireless charging that gets the battery from 0 to 100 percent in just one hour and 40 minutes.

The global version of the handset comes with 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of storage, while users in China also get variants with 8 or 12GB of RAM and as much as 256GB of storage. The phone supports fast wireless charging and can go from 0 to 100 percent in just one hour and 40 minutes if you get the special Charge Turbo wireless pad. It also supports 27W wired charging that will fully charge the battery in around 65 minutes.

The low price tag means Xiaomi had to cut some corners, however. For example, there’s no IP rating, which is more or less standard on flagships these days. There’s also no expandable storage or a headphone jack. But overall, the Xiaomi Mi 9 is still a fantastic phone.


Xiaomi Mi 9 specs:

  • Display: 6.39-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6/8GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 48, 12, 16MP

7. LG G8 ThinQ

LG G8 ThinQ Review display

LG might not be a name you hear as often as you used to, but the company’s smartphones are still among the best. The LG G8 ThinQ is an unusual but innovative addition to the company’s line up. It offers the interesting although not perfect Air Motion feature, sports the Crystal Sound OLED technology that lets the display emit sound, and much more. Of course, it also offers 9W wireless charging.

The LG G8 ThinQ is an audiophile's phone.

Its design might be a bit dated, considering the notch is quickly disappearing from almost all phones, but the G8 compensates with excellent specs. It has a bright and vibrant display, 3,500mAh battery, 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM.

The LG G8 shines as an audiophile’s phone. It still has a headphone jack, supports a 32-bit HiFi Quad DAC, and features a High Quality DTS:X 3D Sound System. Its cameras might not be the most impressive on the market, but if you’re after good sound combined with wireless charging, the LG G8 ThinQ could be your number one choice. But keep in mind that this isn’t the latest phone from LG’s G series. The company has announced the LG G8X ThinQ at IFA 2019, but the phone is not available in the US and most other major markets for now.


LG G8 ThinQ specs:

  • Display: 6.1-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 12 and 16MP

8. Nokia 9 PureView

Nokia 9 PureView Review

It’s not easy to find a flagship Android One device, but the Nokia 9 PureView might be the exception you’ve been looking for. HMD Global’s high-end smartphone not only offers a clean stock Android experience, but premium specs and 10W wireless charging as well.

More is better is the motto of the Nokia 9 PureView.

The Nokia 9 PureView also sports 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a Snapdragon 845 processor. What really makes it stand out, however, are its cameras. It is currently the reigning champion for the highest number of rear sensors — five to be exact. Developed in partnership with Zeiss and Light, the camera configuration consists of two sensors that capture full color, while the remaining three monochrome sensors aid with depth, contrast, and exposure.

Unfortunately, the results are not instantly stunning, but if you love using Pro mode and tweaking the camera settings, the Nokia 9 PureView is a great choice.


Nokia 9 PureView specs:

  • Display: 5.99-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 845
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 5x 12MP
  • Front camera: 20MP
  • Battery: 3,320mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

Razer Phone 2 with wireless charging

This is not the case with the Razer Phone 2. It sports excellent specs and features, wireless charging included.

Editor's Pick

The Razer Phone 2’s design is sleek without too much gamer bling. However, it has large top and bottom bezels that might not be to everyone’s liking. But its screen is one that any gamer will appreciate! Although it’s an LCD, it packs a 120Hz refresh rate with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution.

The Razer Phone 2’s specs are also top notch, considering it came out in 2018. The phone sports the Snapdragon 845 with 8GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

It features a 6.47-inch AMOLED display with tiny bezels in the front, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, either 8GB or 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of expandable onboard storage.
