Pick one: Wireless charging or fast charging? (Poll of the Week)

Which would you rather have — wireless charging or fast (wired) charging?

Published onMay 21, 2018

Last week’s poll summary: Out of over 2,000 total votes, 72.7 percent of voters said OnePlus should bring back the X range. Just 27.3 percent of voters said they either don’t care or that OnePlus shouldn’t bring it back. The results were similar on all our social channels. 58 percent of YouTube voters, 71 percent of Instagram voters, and 51 percent of Twitter voters all think OnePlus should bring back the X range.

Just about every top-tier smartphone nowadays comes with some sort of fast charging feature. Depending on the manufacturer that makes your smartphone, your device might be compatible with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, OnePlus’ Dash Charge, or OPPO’s VOOC charging.

But even though support for fast charging seems to be in every phone, some users don’t care about this as much as another charging method: wireless charging.

Wireless charging isn’t available on every phone, and right now it’s only compatible with phones made of glass. But if you’ve ever owned a wireless charging-compatible device, you’d know how convenient it can be. Just set your phone down on a charging pad, and you don’t have to worry about it. It’s quite nice.

Some glass phones support all the charging methods; the Galaxy S9, for instance, supports Qualcomm Quick Charge, Qi, and PMA wireless charging standards. Other glass phones, such as the OnePlus 6, only support fast (wired) charging, but not wireless charging.
