We’re talking about Samsung’s flagship phone, the Galaxy S4 which does not supports wireless charging out of the box. Now that’s a problem for some users who’re in desperate need of this feature.

Some companies like Google know the importance of wireless charging and that’s why they don’t forget to include it. For example the Nexus 4 and the new Nexus 5 support wireless charging out of the box, but not Samsung.
