Like, its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ still has fast charging and fast wireless charging. What’s new is that now the S10’s come with something called wireless Power Share. With Power Share you can now charge any Qi wireless device by placing it on top of the new Samsung smartphones. But it’s not quite that simple. If you simply place the items back to back, nothing will happen.

Touch ‘Wireless PowerShare’ option, and then follow the on-screen instructions to use it, which basically involves flipping the phone over, and placing whatever you want on the back.
