Galaxy S8+ users report trouble with wireless charging

Yordan, 25 April 2017

After the issue with red tint on some Galaxy S8 units, turned out rather minor, early adopters with of the Galaxy S8+ are faced with another problem. Reportedly, when the phone is placed on Samsung’s Wireless Charging Pad, it either charges slowly or does not fill up the battery at all.

Some say that they can charge the Galaxy S8+ with a non-Samsung branded pad. Others just get a notification saying the wireless charging has been paused. It's uncertain what percentage of units are affected.

Samsung is yet to acknowledge the wireless charging issue.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

It is not the charger, the TA or the Phone. Get a good quality micro USB cable and the wireless charging will work again. The crap samsung provides, can not handle the amps for wireless fast charging. Anker or aukey are good.
