Qi wireless charger showdown

Qi chargers

We take a look at three popular Qi wireless charging solutions and put them head to head in Jerry's bedroom

Qi(pronounced Chee, and is totally a word no matter what Words with Friends says) is a wireless standard developed in 2009 by the Wireless Power Consortium. The standard itself covers inductive power transfer over short distances -- up to four centimeters -- and uses a electromagnetembedded in a transmission pad to induce current in a coil on the back of the thing you're charging. In our case, that means a Nexus 4 smartphone.

With big-name device makers like Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola and Nokia (as well as others) using the standard, it is slowly emerging as the winner in the obscure wireless charging war that goes on incubicles all over the world. Long live Qi! On a serious note, it's an open standard with over 100 companies in Asia, Europe and North America cooperating to set a good standard that everyone can implement. That's good for business, and good for consumers in the long run. Of course, there will always be companies that buck the trend and take another path, but for now if you're going to spend your hard-earned money on a wireless charger that you should be able to use for the life of multiple devices, Qi charging is the way to go.

Because it's a standard, there are quite a few different companies making the base stations (a fancy term for the charging pad). I took a look at the three most popular and put them head to head to see which one I'd recommend. While I used a Nexus 4 for my tests, these chargers should work for any Qi-compatiblephone with a flat back. Jump past the break and see who wins the Qi charger showdown.

We put the "Official" Nexus 4 charging orb, the LG WCP-300 wireless charger, and the Nokia DT-900 charging pad side by side on the nightstand, right next to where I lay my head every night. I charge my phone every night without fail, and use it as my alarm clock so I'm used to having it right there beside me every night. All three performed well enough, but we need to go deeper. Let's have a look at each, and see the pros and cons.

The Nexus 4 wireless charger

Nexus 4 wireless charger

It's a sexy little half sphere, and unlike the other two chargers I tried, raises the phone to an angle that makes it a bit easier to see. While all induction chargers have a very slight bit of magnetic attraction, the Nexus 4 charger uses a ring of sticky rubber to keep the phone in place. For some reason, a few people have trouble with this and their phone falls off in the middle of the night. I've been using this one since they first became available, with multiple phones and haven't had that issue. Like Stonehenge, this has become a mystery that will never be fully understood. Your mileage may vary, you have been warned, etc.

If your phone stays on the charger as designed, it works really well. I tried with a bare-ass naked phone, while using the official LG bumper, and my trusty purple TPU case. The phone charged just fine in all three scenarios.


  • Uses micro USB standard cable
  • Raises phone to a more visible angle
  • Is heavy enough to not move when fiddling with it in the dark
  • Easy to find
  • Says Nexus on the front HOLOYOLO (I had to find a fifth pro somewhere)


  • Phones slide off for plenty of folks
  • It's bigger than it needs to be
  • The sticky rubber ring collects lint and dust
  • Only available online
  • Warranty process is difficult

The single killer feature of the Nexus 4 charger is it's weight. Especially if you use a case. In the middle of the night, when the room is dark and your eyes haven't adjusted it won't slide around while you're trying to position your phone in the right spot.

The con that kills the whole thing is that you run the risk of your phone not staying in place if you're unlucky. We have no idea why this happens to the people it happens to, but know going in that others have serious issues with this.

The LG WCP-300 wireless charger

LG WCP-300 wireless charger

Next up is the smallest of the lot, the LG WCP-300. About the same diameter as the Nexus 4 charger, but just a half-inch tall. This one has no issues with phones sliding off, and is an "official" LG accessory if that sort of thing is important to you. It's also very light, which means it slides around a good bit if your phone has a grippy TPU case on it. Positioning things just right can be a bit difficult at first, but that won't take very long to get used to.

I was able to charge my Nexus 4 using the WCP-300 while naked, in a TPU case, and with the official bumper (see below) and it worked as described on the tin each time.


  • Small and light, it's a perfect travel companion
  • Available from your local Verizon store so you can see it before you buy
  • Uses the micro USB standard for power connection
  • Dim amber power lamp lets you know it's plugged in
  • $20 cheaper than the Nexus charging orb


  • Very light and will move while positioning your phone if you use a TPU case
  • The dim amber power indicator lamp changes into a blinding green flashing beacon when charging your phone
  • A Nexus 4 with a bumper is very hard to position
  • Flat angle makes it difficult to use your phone as a bedside clock

The killer feature of the WPC-300 is the small size and portability. You could buy a spare to toss into your bag and have it available at a conference center or hotel desk. If the big draw of a Qi charger is being able to grab your phone and use it without a wire hanging out of it's tail, and you travel a lot, this is the one to buy.

On the other hand, the width (2.75-inches in diameter) makes it too wide to fit between the edges of a Nexus 4 bumper, but not wide enough to catch both sides equally. If you use a bumper-style case, pass on this one. And that light. I'm being serious -- it's like a discotheque in a dark bedroom. I could cover it with a bit of tape, or I could just use a charger that doesn't shoot green laser beams in my bedroom all night.

Nokia DT-900 wireless charger

Nokia DT-900 wireless charger

Because the Qi standard is, well, standard, it means chargers made from other companies will work just fine on your phone -- even evil companies that partner with Microsoft Nokia. The DT-900 uses the same exact Qi method to charge your Nexus 4 that any other Qi charger would use, making it a true universal accessory.

The DT-900 itself is a bit bigger than the others I tried, with a 120mm by 60mm footprint. It's also very light like the LG WPC-300, meaning that you're going to be pushing it all over your desk or nightstand if you have a TPU case on your phone. It is pretty stylish though, coming in five different colors (white, black, red, yellow and blue) to match your decor.

It also worked as advertised with a naked phone, while wearing a TPU case, or with the Nexus 4 bumper installed.


  • Super cheap. Find it at daily deals sites for $25 or less
  • Comes in colors other than black
  • Also available from Verizon, so you can see it before you buy it
  • Well constructed from premium-feeling materials, like everything else Nokia makes
  • It's the perfect size for a Nexus 4 wearing a bumper


  • Does not use the micro USB standard for power connection
  • Bigger footprint than the others
  • Moves when you try to position a phone with a TPU case
  • The "sweet spot" can be hard to find
  • The flat angle makes it difficult to use your phone as a nightstand clock

The one killer feature of the Nokia DT-900 is it's size and shape. If you have a Nexus 4 and use the official bumper, the DT-900 fits right inside of it, against the back of the phone. Just reach over, drop your phone in place using the bumper as a guide, and your phone will charge.

The major drawback is the non-standard power connection. You'll have to use the included cord and power block, and that means more junk in your travel bag or another cord to keep track of. While replacements are probably available, they would likely cost as much as the whole charger kit itself.

The winner

Nokia is the winner

As much as it kills me that the official Nexus 4 charging orb didn't get the nod here, I have to go with what works best for me. That's the Nokia DT-900. The way it nestles in the cavity created by the Nexus 4 bumper makes it a no-brainer to use, and when using a TPU case or nothing at all it still works fine.

Your phone won't slip off, and there is no alien-invasion style blinking green light show to keep you up at night. I wish it used a normal USB cable for power, but then again I'm not planning on spending too many nights at a hotel this year.

What really puts it over the top is the price. As mentioned, I picked this one up for $24 at Daily Steals, making it a full $15 cheaper than the LG WPC-300and a whopping $35 cheaper than the official Nexus accessory. Stop by your local Verizon store to play with the floor model and see for yourself (but be sure to buy it online and save $25).

Any of these chargers (or the many other Qi-powered alternatives you'll find on the Internet) will charge your Nexus 4 without too many issues. There is no big secret -- drop your phone on the right spot and it charges until it's full or you lift it off. But the little things matter, and I've got to hand this one to the Nokia.

Sprint finally shuts down iDEN, but how fast will it translate into improved LTE?

New cash and spectrum give Sprint lots of potential, but it still needs to execute on its (Network) Vision

We've known about the impending shutdown of Sprint's legacy iDEN network for a long time now, and this is finally the last full day of service for the network. There are likely very few handsets, and even fewer running Android, up and on the iDEN network today, but Sprint flipping the switch is still an important story. Sprint's post-iDEN plan is to quickly repurpose the spectrum from the old network for its steadily expanding LTE offering.

The iDEN network was running in extremely valuable 800MHzspectrum as well, adding to the importance of this transition. With an influx of cash from an all-but-complete SoftBankmerger, Sprint needs to put its new found resources to work and do it quick. While the Now Network has been talking up its LTE network since its launch, customers and potential customers alike haven't been encouraged by its progress.

Moving through the second half of 2013, Sprint has the opportunity to seriously improve its shaky network -- let's see if it can follow through.

Apps of the Week

Another great set of apps to wrap up this month's Apps of the Week posts

It's Saturday afternoon, and that means it's time for another Apps of the Week post where we show off a few of our (currently) favorite apps. A handful of the Android Central writers have chimed in this week with an app that keeps them productive, entertained or just solves a problem that's bothering them on a particular device.

This week we have a couple ways to read the news, a great game choice and a few tools. Stick around after the break and see how we did.

Sean Brunett - Financial Times

Financial Times

If youre looking for a good news app, I recommend the Financial Times. The London paper has done a good job designing it for the mobile experience. Unfortunately, there is a paywall on the Financial Times, but even if you dont pay, youll be able to access some of the content. You can register for the paper and be able to read 8 articles per month without having to pay. The more that we consume on our tablets and phones, its that much more important that app experiences are good and satisfying. The Financial Times has done a good job and for those of you who are paying subscribers, youll be able to access a slew of great content. If youre not, you can still read 8 articles a month.

Richard Devine - NewsBlur


I'm perhaps recommending Newsblur this week more for the service, and less for the app. Not to say the app isn't a good app, but, anyway. Newsblur is an alternative RSS service that I have just migrated all my feeds to, and I've paid $24 for the yearly subscription. Madness? Perhaps. But I have, and I'm happy, and I figure if I've paid for something, it shouldn't go away, right? And it's fast, the real-time updates seem to be real-time for sure.

The Android app is very similar looking to the iOS app, and both are very similar looking to the Newsblur web app. That's a good thing, it's familiar across platforms, whichever you're using at any one time. The power tools such as the "intelligence training" need to be set up through the web app, but what you have on your Android device is a full featured RSS reader that ties into your Newsblur account. You can try it out for free, but all the power features require a premium account. I might be mad, I haven't yet decided, but Newsblur feels just like Google Reader, but a little more grown up.

Jerry Hildenbrand - Blank Lockscreen

Blank Lockscreen

I may be part of the minority, but I hate lock screen widgets. I don't want one of my goofy friends seeing my email or messages, and I only need one clock on the screen at a time. Unfortunately, the persistant (and horrible) default clock will come right back if you try to delete all the widgets on your lockscreen. It's like a bad penny. So I was happier than I should have been when I found a solution. Blank Lockscreen Widget is just what it claims to be -- a big full screen widget with nothing on it. Simply set it on one of the endless silly lock screen panes, then delete everything else and enjoy the minimalism.

Download: Blank Lockscreen (Free)

Simon Sage - McPixel


My pick this week was from the latest Humble Android Bundle. This game is the unlikely marriage of horrible pixel art and bomb defusal. Players are presented with a series of scenes where they must guide the crotch-kicking hero, McPixel, to isolate an explosive in a limited number of taps and amount of time. No worries if you mess up - you'll just move onto the next scene and come back to the failed one... Over and over again until you figure it out, damn it. Logic is rarely involved with the solutions to the puzzles, though the way in which many of them unfold is ultimately pretty hilarious. If you feel like spitting in the face of common sense this weekend, McPixel will be happy to oblige.

Download: McPixel ($2.99)

Casey Rendon - Full!screen


When playing games or watching videos, the more screen real estate that is used, the better. Nothing bugs me more than having black bars shrink the images on my device. A lot of apps are good at hiding the status and/or navigation bars, but others -- not so much. For those that are rooted, this app allows the manual toggling between visible status/navigation bars and full screen mode. On-screen controls like back, home, and recents can be assigned to the corners of the screen and have completely adjustable opacity and size. The app is free, but does require root. Many custom ROMs incorporate this functionality, but for users on a stock or stock-ish ROM, this is a great alternative.

Download: Full!screen(Free)

Andrew Martonik - Evernote Food

Evernote Food

I'm not a regular user of Evernote, as I generally manage things on my own with Dropbox and Google Drive, but something about Evernote Food has me intrigued. As you would expect, the basic function of the app is to keep track of everything you eat (or want to eat) so that you have it categorized and searchable for the next time you want to try it. From main courses and desserts to cocktails, you can also browse through popular recipes for inspiration, adding them directly to your Evernote account if you want to try them on your own later.

Best of all the interface on the app is clean and beautiful (even on larger tablets), making it easy to browse or follow recipes on the device while you're in the kitchen. Even if you're not the biggest fan of using Evernote for daily information keeping, you may want to give Evernote Food a look.

Google Reader shuts down July 1, be sure to export your feeds

Google Reader shuts down July 1, be sure to export your feeds

Google Reader

Whether you've found a replacement service or not, be sure to get your feeds from Google before the shutdown

Monday will be a sad day indeed, as Google Reader will finally shut its doors and stop operating as an RSS feed aggregator. We've covered some alternative (and free!) choices over the past week, but whether you've made up your mind on where your RSS feeds will live post-Google Reader or not, you need to remember to export your feeds before the service shuts down. We can assume Google might hold onto that data for a little while after the shutdown, but there aren't any promises being made.

As we cover in our tutorial on moving over to Feedly, Google Takeout makes it dead simple to get a single file containing all of your Google Reader data. Takeout will provide several different files as part of your Reader export, but the important one will be an XML file called "Subscriptions". You will be able to use this file to import your entire list of feeds to another service later on down the road, and also keep it as a "last good copy" of everything you had. You can even edit it before importing to another service.

You can find that tutorial, along with a few other important posts about choosing a compatible and useful RSS client for both the web and on your Android device, below.

Google brings Microsoft Office document editing to Chrome OS developer track

Google brings Microsoft Office document editing to Chrome OS developer track


If you look back about a year ago, you'll be reminded that Google purchased the mobile office suiteQuickoffice. We finally see the fruits of the purchase, but not exactly how everyone expected to see it. Using the Microsoft Office compatibility built into Quickoffice's document editing, users on the Chrome OS developer build track can now edit both Word and Excel files without any hassles, right from their Chromebook.

Of course, being in the developer track means there is bound to be bugs. But Google has been fairly swift with pushing features through the dev and beta tracks, and we're seeing new features and additions roll into the stable branch with every release. Still, things may not be ready for prime time just yet.

To give this a try for yourself, you need to switch to the developer track of Chrome OS, and set an experimental flag. Point your browser at chrome://flags, and find the "Enable document editing" entry. Enable it and restart your Chromebook. There's a place to report any and all Quickofficebugs right here, so be sure to report any difficulties you run into. Here's to a happy test phase, and we're looking forward to seeing Microsoft Office file editing in the stable branch soon.

Not exactly a shock, especially to those of us who are used to seeing 2-year-old devices be put out to pasture with even less fanfare. At least these guys got a warning.

Anyhoo. CB's giving away a tablet anything other than a PlayBook, we s'pose with a contest running through the end of July 1. Seeing as how so many of you fine Android Central readers jumped ship way back when (and we know who you are), might as well lend a hand here.

Chrome beta updated, fixes keyboard at Gmail website and favicon sync

Chrome beta

Chrome beta for Android has received another sizable update, and a few long-standing nags have been addressed. A quick look at the change log says the white flash that appears when you load a new tab (that's murder on the eyes at night in bed) should be gone, favicons should sync across other devices using Clank (Chrome beta for Android's code name), and issues with the keyboard at the Gmail website where it won't dismiss have been corrected.

Add in a security fix to make sure a dialog is displayed as soon as any downloads are called instead of actually accepted and a slew of the normal bug fixes, and this is one you'll want to install. Grab the update through Google Play or at the link above.

Max Sound's Spins HD makes Android mp3 playback not suck

Max Sound's Spins HD makes Android mp3 playback not suck

Spins HD

Coming update makes it easier to organize and play your library while keeping all the sound improvements you expect from Spins HD

While the debate over keeping your music collection stored locally or in the cloud will never end, the one thing most people agree on is that a good music player app makes a world of difference in the way those files sound. Everyone has a favorite, but Max Sound is pushing out an update to Spins HD that you're going to want to look at.

Spins HD takes your existing on-device music collection and runs it through more than equalizer presets, the app delivers HD sound by converting the file into an actual analog sound wave. While it's still a compressed digital file, this allows the "full breadth" of the original recording to come through, delivering better sounding music. These claims may come from the developers, but I will say the files do sound better when playing in Spins HD, and often times much better. And it's easy -- there is a page of presets that work well, and for the more adventurous, you can also set the tone for high, low, and midpoint sounds from your music. Great sound from an app that's easy to use is always a plus.

Smart phones have taken the place of the mp3 player for most of us, so getting great sounding audio is important for the connoisseursout there. The coming update for Spins HD keeps the great sound you expect from the player, and adds a much improved UI that makes it easier to manage and sort your playlists and songs. If you're a current user, look for the update shortly, and if you haven't tried Spins HD yet, click the link above to give it a whirl. A press release and series of screenshots is after the break.

Max Sounds New Spins HD for Audio App Is Ultimate High-Definition Enhancement for Android Phones Music Library

Update to Max Sounds flagship audio control app makes it easier than ever to manage playlists of HD-quality music on the go

SANTA MONICA July 2, 2013 Max Sound Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: MAXD) the HD audio company that is substantially improving the sound quality in live events, music, movies, audiobooks, video games, television and mobile devices today released the most definitive update yet to its flagship music app for Android, Spins HD for Audio. Spins HD for Audio, featuring Max Sounds patented digital audio technology, provides the clearest and crispest sound standard for music playback on a smartphone or other portable media player.

The smartphone is the definitive music playback device of this generation and the mp3 remains the definitive audio format. The Max Sound app finally gives serious music enthusiasts the sound quality they deserve on their portable smartphone devices, beginning with Android, said Max Sound CEO John Blaisure. Finally, through the power of the Spins HD for Audio app, much of the loss in sound quality aficionados have experienced since the dawn of digital music and the advent of the mp3 is finally being restored.

The new Spins HD for Audio 1.03 gives users more control than ever over how they organize and play back this HD-quality music. Spins HD for Audio now allows users to create a playlist from any artist, track, albums, genres, and queue just in time for that summer road trip! Users can also create, rename and delete playlists, or create and edit new ones from queued tracks. Users can even delete specific tracks from a queue or select to play at a specific point in the queue.

Going well beyond the glut of unexceptional EQ-based apps in Google Play, Max Sounds patent pending technology is unlike any other high-definition portable audio solution on the market. Max Sound actually converts the original, compressed digital recording to an analog sound wave. By doing this, Max Sound restores the full breadth of the original recording even though it is still technically playing back the digital mp3 file. In the Spins HD for Audio app, users can also easily toggle different parts of the sound wave customizing it to the low, mid or high range or let the the app itself do the work by setting musical genre defaults like pop, rock, jazz, classical, reggae, and many others.

The Max Sound Corporations technology is now integrated with Liquid Sounds, through its acquisition of the latter company late last year. Users can now download the new Spins HD for Audio app in Google Play.
