Back in 2013-2014 I was using the Nexus 5. It was a very good phone, and to this day many people still remember it fondly. One of the features of that phone which appealed to me was the fact that it came with wireless charging. That's right, even though wireless charging seems kinda "new", it was actually around from a long time ago. I loved it back then. I had a power bank (or a battery pack as some people call it) which was capable of wireless charging, so with the power bank I could charge my phone just by placing it on top of the power bank, and that was literally wireless charging.
Since then though, none of the phones I've used came with wireless charging, and you know what, I'm ok with that. For some people, wireless charging is a requirement, and they won't even consider buying phones that don't have it. But for me, I now value quick charging over the convenience of wireless charging, which is why I'm very happy to be using my second OnePlus phone in a row. OnePlus' charging speed has consistently been one of the fastest in the market for the past few years, and that's not something I'd like to give up.
Wireless charging is faster now than it was a few years ago, but wired charging is still faster and I don't really find plugging in my device to be all that tedious. I only charge my phone once a day anyway. Wireless charging is convenient and cool in a sense that you can just place your phone down and it'll start charging, and now some phones can even act as wireless chargers themselves for your accessories like wireless earbuds and smartwatches, but I'd rather my phone charge faster so I'm happy to stick with wired charging.
What about you? Do you prefer the convenience of wireless charging, or the speed of wired charging?
