If you're talking about those circular disk they lay on to charge, I can't charge and use the phone at the same time. It'll fall off. Not steady enough for me.
I used to keep my old phone (J7 Crown) plugged in all the time but the problem I discovered is that when I roll around in bed with the charger and auxiliary cord connected, I inadvertently damage either the charging cord, auxiliary cord, charging port or auxiliary port.
I've personally gone through countless cords. Now, Bluetooth isn't the greatest thing, I admit. Especially if you buy cheap ones that get interference or have trouble staying connected. But it does save me money on buying new cords. I can listen to my music or whatever while I sleep and not have to worry about breaking something.
I'd like to believe that would translate over to charging in the sense that I could keep my wireless charger on my bed stand, charging the phone and have it connected via Bluetooth for my headphones. No more wires at all.
I'm looking at it from a financial aspect. Though I do like having an auxiliary port for when I'm listening to music while not sleeping. I like having a physical connection between my headphones and phone because it feels like I'm interacting with the music so to speak. Like, it's a physical connection that I can see.
Personally the benefits of wireless charging outweigh the negatives and not only from a financial perspective, but also a reduced risk of inadvertent strangulation from the cords that you're sleeping with.
Everyone is different. You should do what makes you happy. My avocation of wireless charging is merely as an additional standard feature for those of us who can benefit from it.
Currently, I have SkullCandy brand Hesh 2 style headphones. I got them from Walmart for around $70. 20 hours of battery life and they're over-the-ears which is even better for sound isolation because it cups around my ears.
I actually thought this phone (Galaxy A32) being new this year and having 5G capability would come with wireless charging as standard with a backup/optional charging port. But it doesn't. That's what inspired me to look further into this, leading me to discover that Apple is already utilizing magnetic charging technology, just like my Lenovo tablet has.
Being in the game with all these new cameras on the back is okay, but implementing wireless charging, as standard with all new Galaxy phones will put Samsung AHEAD of the game.
It'll be especially more inciting if Samsung not only implements wireless charging as standard but also keep the charging port for those (like you) who prefer to use it and also as a backup when a wireless charging dock isn't available. Definitely keep the auxiliary port as well.
I hope Samsung reads this whole conversation and take into account the benefits of having the best of both worlds. Not only for their future's sake, but for our convenience as well.
