    Galaxy S8 wireless charging issue being reported by some users

    It's not uncommon for a new smartphone to face some teething problems. As Samsung puts the final touches on the update that's going to address the Galaxy S8 display's reddish tint issue, many Galaxy S8 owners are complaining about a new issue that has to do with the handset's wireless charging function.

    Some Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners are complaining that they are unable to charge their device using Samsung's Fast Charging pad. Some find that the company's older charging pads are not working even though the devices are on the Qi standard and should work with these pads.

    A temporary fix that appears to be working for users involves using a non-Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger with the older pads which will enable them to charge the device at slower speeds. Others just get a notification on their device which says that wireless charging has been paused.

    An argument can be made that perhaps Samsung is preventing wireless Fast Charging from working on older pads as it wants to limit the possibility of any issues with the Galaxy S8's battery. If that is indeed the case the company should make that clear to customers so that they don't keep thinking that their new device has an issue.

    If that's not the case, it may just be a firmware bug that could be causing this issue and that can easily be addressed via a software update. Have any of you faced this issue? Let us know in the comments below.
