    Has anyone noticed whether using wireless charging instead of USB results in a lower battery life? I don't mean to say that it damages the battery, but rather that I have experienced "100%" battery capacity lasting only a few hours whereas the phone just seems to chug along the whole day if I charged it via USB. Is it possible that inductive charging could be incapable of giving the phone a full charge?

    This is 100% true. I have noticed this on numerous occasions - every time I use the pad to charge my phone it shows full battery and then dies within a few hours of use. And when I say dies, I mean it. It shows the no battery icon for a few hours with no way of switching it on (unless sometimes after an hour or so of charging I do the lock screen+volume button reset). I always press back until all apps are closed and have no running apps in the background. The only variable between a phone that lasts over a day and one that shows 100% but lasts an hour or so of light use is the damn charging pad. Now I do have a hard case which I dont take off the phone when charging on the pad so that might be playing a trick. But at the end of the day if my batter says its 100% full and it seems to be charging normally theres quite a big fail!

    I will close this thread and now that I've searched the forum, I think will probably merge the following threads too, but give them a read, I used the forum search:

    Maybe not all of them are going to have exactly same first post but the same issue have been discussed and solutions/opinions suggested. It does feel like it's a placebo effect with wireless charging so varies from user to user, unless you get a lemon.
