    Some of the phone holders use a magnet and you stick a metal disk to the back of your phone (inside or outside) or inside the phone cover.
    I wondering if this metal plate interferes with wireless charging, or NFC, or anything else...
    I have a Lumia 930.

    I did a search and only found this thread from August 2013

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/windows-phone-accessories/238343-car-mount-lumia-920-a.html

    which said there could be a problem with wireless charging using this mount:

    I looked through the Q&A and couldn't see where anyone mentioned it, or asked about it.

    type of phone mounts I am looking at:

    I would recommend to read the lower star reviews like the one below.

    This review is from: The Original iMagnet Cradle-less Universal Car Phone Windshield Dashboard Mount Holder for iPhone 6, 6 Plus (6+), 5S 5 4S, Galaxy S5 S4 S3, Note 2 3, HTC One 8X 8S, LG Optimus, Nexus 4 (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Everything about this product is great: it mounts easily and securely, the phone attaches super fast and is held securely. The issue that I have is that I use a wireless/inductive charger for my phone, and the metal plate (even the smaller round one) interferes with that operation. If not for that problem, it would be a 5-star product.

    So I would not buy it.

    It interferes the qi charging.
    Then nfc area is between the Nokia logo and the camera and if you glue the metal plate over this area nfc will be disabled.
    The 930 is kind of heavy and so maybe to heavy.
    Compass may be disturbed if the phone is on the mount.
    aximtreo and the whole taco like this.

    from Logitech in response to my email to support:
    "In line with your concern, the [+] trip uses magnet and it will not affect or interfere with your smart phones"
    I have asked for a less generalised, and more specific response to my concerns re wireless charging and the magnet affecting phone operations when mounted
