    OnePlus 6 have a glass back which can support wireless charging, hope you are aware of some future planning and expension.

    It can support it, yes, but the point is it's slower and heats the battery more than what's offered with the Dash Charge brick.

    Slower perfomance might be a reason for delaying this feature, but still there is some development going on and still there's some bright hope. And only on the basis of slow working you can't put a full stop on story. Dash changing is another thing nothing compared with wireless charging.

    FALSE! Fast cable charging will always heat up battery more. Hands on experience - charging 4 phones wirelessly - battery heats up more with wired

    yeah...one plus x was a great phone...was just missing nfc...
    once y was reading that one plus will give lifetime assistance and replacement parts...
    but at the moment I need help with my one plus one...there was no assistance or solution. hurts my trust in one plus.

    There's an old saying...."Believe nothing you read and only half what you see."

    What is the problem with your OnePlus One?

    It has never been easy to find a reliable repair facility who are willing to work on a OnePlus One. Even in the early days, it was necessary to send your OnePlus One back to the factory in China for any minor repair, and that took literally months.

    As the OnePlus One is more than 4 years old, and the fact only just over 1 million were ever made, about the only source for replacement parts, is going to be on the used phone market, like eBay, where broken and non-working phones are sold for parts.

    oneplus has to bring wireless charging in their phone on oneplus 6t or 7 due to tough competition from other brands in similar price bracket and not only wireless charging but ip 68 rating too. eg is lg g7 which is launch with same price tag but has both the features.

    if they will not upgrade they will start to loose the market they have captured in last 4 years.

    and if oneplus does not want to provide wireless charging option due to bad charging speed than they have to come out with some thing different but be more usefull to their customers to fight the competition.

    Wireless charging is mostly a vaporware when it comes to using. It never charges as fast as you need and it's not strong enough to charge while watching something on your phone.
    Its basically useless in most situations. Being said that, I certainly has its niche use cases but with its snail pace of advancement, it is useless.

    First of all, from the day I know there is a technology call wireless charging until today, never use it once. [e]1f601[/e]

    Wireless Charging is nothing what we really need.


    1. It's slow
    2.Needs a charging pad, which is bigger than a Dash Charge wall plug
    3. Phone cannot be used during charge process
    4.Phone will become hot during charge
    5. Phone need to be exactly placed on the charge pad
    6. Charge pad needed

    1. No cable is plugged during charge

    Six valid cons against only one reason to use wireless charging.

    Any further comments?

    We all know this technology from electric tooth brushes, there should it belong, not on mobile phones *scnr*

    One pro in favor of wireless charging you forgot was, it reduces the potential of damaging your phones "C" connector, when attaching or removing the "Dash Chargers" cable. o_O :p

    I don't understand. If wireless charging is so bad, it would be cool if Oneplus could create their own dash wireless charge.

    I've never had a wireless charging anything in my life, so I would just like to know from those of you who did, what's the great thing of not having to plug a wire?! You still have to connect the pad to the socket and you have to put your phone on top of it... with micro usb c you don't even have to find which way is up and it literally takes a second to plug, so I don't see how "saving" (not really cause it's slow) 2 seconds a day is such a big thing...
    When you become able to charge your phone without it coming out of your pocket count me in, untill then... bah... just a gimmick.

    Edit: I'm a lier... I have an electric toothbrush with wireless charging... Srry

    Sorry this is pointless.

    USB C is specified for 10.000 plug in/out cycles.

    Find better arguments pro wireless charging :)

    Creating something is more than mixing two marketing buzzwords. Smart engineers have to invent and develop such a solution....
