The Galaxy S10 comes with plenty of new tricks compared to its predecessors, and Wireless PowerShare is very useful for those who are entrenched in the Samsung ecosystem and use the company’s smartwatches and/or its wireless earbuds. Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ owners don’t need to lug around a separate charger for their wearable device. They can simply use the phone to charge their Gear/Galaxy smartwatch or earbuds wirelessly, while the phone itself is charging over a wired connection.
And the question we’re asking in today’s poll is a simple one: How often are you using your Galaxy S10 to charge your wearables? Have you done away with your smartwatch’s charging cradle now that you own a Galaxy S10, or are you using the reverse wireless charging capability only when out of the house or office? Or do you not own any wearable devices and are simply ignoring the feature altogether?
Tell us by voting in the poll below, then get a discussion going in the comments section to elaborate on your response, especially if you find that more than one option in the poll fits your use-case.

Results: It seems the highest number of voters (34 percent) are using the reverse wireless charging feature on their Galaxy S10 when they travel, which makes sense as it allows one to travel with a single charger and just charge the wearable device with the phone. 31 percent say they used it a couple of times before going back to separate chargers, while 11 percent of voters said they are charging their wearable with their Galaxy S10 every night. 8 percent of voters say the feature came to the rescue for charging their friends’ phone, and the remaining 16 percent do not own a wearable device.
