[Update: Looking good for GS10 and GS10e, too] Magnetic phone mounts surprisingly play nice with Galaxy S10+ wireless charging

On most phones that feature wireless charging, you typically need to give up that convenience when installing a magnetic plate for phone mounts — or place the mount in a location where it works poorly to keep it.
