      khaled kakeesh something called “liability issues”.
      Example. Just because the note 7 caught fire. Didn’t mean Samsung didn’t know how to make a phone.

  • HD Jabs
    HD Jabs 7 months ago, it charges like a regular witless charger, but the only difference is that you can see the battery percentage through the phone?
    I don't get it.
    What makes this different and why is it worth it?

    • HD Jabs

      Samsung's dual charger, galaxy watch and wireless charger

    • bluepeng889
      bluepeng889 7 months ago

      No the difference is it can (or should i say it was suppose to be able to) charge multiple devices at the same time. Wireless chargers can only charge one device at a time, but AirPower was suppose to be able to charge multiple devices (iPhone, Airpods, and apple watch) at the same time.

    MAJED 7 months ago +3

    So its a wireless charger why are ppl clapping again

    • Cam
      Cam 7 months ago

      MAJED because the only reason Apple even bothered to attempt a charging mat was to make it a fundamentally better experience. While I personally would have settled for what you described, I don’t think Apple was willing to release a product that was inferior to the one they promised.

    • MAJED
      MAJED 7 months ago

      @Cam but really thats it why don't they make it add three places for 3 devices and mark them with and LED or a logo to where u should place the phone it just seems stupid and would have been crazy overpriced

    • Cam
      Cam 7 months ago +1

      MAJED because unlike a typical wireless charger, which requires relatively precise placement to work, this one was supposed to charge a device regardless of placement. And it could 3 at the same time in the process. It’d never been done, and I guess it never will. It just goes against the physics of how Qi charging works.

    • MAJED
      MAJED 7 months ago +1

      @Cam how though its just a wireless charger what magic does it do

    • Cam
      Cam 7 months ago +1

      MAJED because it was a far more advanced concept than any wireless charger at the time it even today.
      Unfortunately it was too advanced, and it’s dead 💀

      Chris Cronin It’s more sad that they announced it when it wasn’t ready yet. That’s something I always give other companies crap about. Apple’s track record here has been amazing… but this breaks so much trust in their product announcements from here on out.

    What a freaking shame. Don’t announce things you can’t release.
