[Poll Results!] How often do you charge your wearables with the Galaxy S10?

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. Still on the fence about buying a Galaxy S10? Check out our Galaxy S10e review here and our Galaxy S10+ review here. Also see how you can use Wireless PowerShare if you just bought a Galaxy S10.

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.

I used it once to see if it works. I don’t like it. I have a watch with a bracelet so I can not unpin it and put it on the phone.

We have 4 wearables, 2 smartwatches and 2 Galaxy buds, but we don’t reverse charge any of them as we don’t have the S10! Lol. Will certainly try it out with the Note10.

I used it once. Just to check how it works and I don’t like it. During charging I couldn’t using my phone so for me PowerShare is useless so far.

Have watch and galaxy buds.

Comes across more as a gimmick, however it may come in handy that one time im caught out but i doubt it.

Haven’t used it and not planning too, not keen on face down, rather keep more juice in my phone, and slowness.

I used it to show off a few times and that’s it. It isn’t ideal to have my phone face down at the times in which I’m charging my Buds or Galaxy Watch.

I only charge my Galaxy Watch briefly while getting ready in the morning, and I have my phone with me during those times.

personally only tried it a couple of times and there are a number of issues to actually make this a useful feature on my s10. 1. The battery life of my S10 is too important to share with other devices!!! I have a plug or power bank for general charging 2. The wireless power share is far too slow and if i have a power bank or separate plug then the charge is much faster using the conventional method 3. as mention below, rarely do I have my phone facing down and means that my phone will be out of… Read more »

The only problem I have with wireless power share is that it only works from the back of the phone. I rarely, if ever, set my phone face down, even with a screen protector on.
