BuQu Tech Magnetyze iPhone 5/5s Case Review

0. phoneArena posted on 18 Mar 2014, 03:53

Looking around the landscape, wireless charging is still a feature that’s not being widely adopted by many smartphones – including those nestled in the high-end segment. Nevertheless, it’s undoubtedly a feature that has its own particular set of benefits. Apple has been reluctant in bringing the feature to its iPhone, so that leaves many owners looking at various accessory makers to gain the functionality. Thus far, we’ve seen solutions, like the Powermat or Energizer’s Qi compatible inductive charger, that deliver the feature to several popular smartphones, but BuQu Tech’s Magnetyze case has a slightly different approach...

That screen looks tiny with the case on.

I would not consider this "Wireless charging". This almost defeats the purpose and benefits of wireless charging. So when you are connected to the charger, you cant lay the phone down on its back? Certainly seems like it would be very awkward to use while charging, lying on a table. Also, with the added length and bulk, it seems like they could have added in extra battery capacity to the case, that might make it sellable. Pretty worthless if you ask me.
