    New Priv owner and first time owning a device and using Quick Charge / Wireless Charge.

    I noticed that wireless charging seems to cause the phone to heat up quite a bit more than quick charge -- is this normal?

    some devices do heat up using wireless charging. My Z30 was wirelessly charged every night and it never overheated. But you can't tell which device will or won't. Not unusual tho

    With a case or not?

    What type of wireless charger? How did you orient the phone? The Priv's charging antenna is in the lower 1/3 of the phone. Offsetting it from there can make it inefficient and might lead to heating.

    No case. The wireless charger is actually on the base of my lamp -- probably not a very good one.
    I did find to position the bottom 1/3 from my trial and error. I think I also calculated the charging speed and I was getting around 680mAh but the wireless charger on this lamp is supposedly rated for 1000mAh.

    The reason I asked about a case was that my ShopBB Priv is in a flip case with a series of magnets, front and back. I believe that the magnets do interfere with wireless charging and sometimes the Priv/case/charger get really warm. I really don't try measuring the power of the wireless - just convenient.

    I didn't purposely measure the power of the charger, just looked at my phone and did some math.

    I use a Samsung wireless charger and it got so hot once that it did overheat. Without a case. It's a concern because heat will shorten the lifespan of the battery faster.

    I get no heat using a TechMatte 3 coil wireless charger with my StillGut case.

    I use a Samsung 'fast' charge wireless and a Tylt, both the 45 degree angled type, with a hard case. No issues. It gets warm with either, but no more so than with a regular 2 amp corded supply.
    Don't have a QC charger, don't need one, so can't compare there.

    BTW, the Samsung is marginally faster, but the term fast really shouldn't be used with wireless chargers.
