Review: Adonit PhotoGrip Qi is a great smartphone camera grip with built-in wireless charging

Smartphone cameras have come a long way in the last decade, and for many people, they've completely replaced dedicated cameras. They're smaller and lighter, easier to travel with, and you don't have to offload the photos before doing something with them. But that doesn't mean we don't miss a few things from DSLRs or point and shoots, like a comfortable hand grip or a physical shutter button.

Now that the Pixel 3 and 3XL are glass, wireless charging is in again. Google even unveiled its own fancy wireless charger alongside the 2018 Pixels. However, those phones only fast charge wirelessly with Google's custom technology. Google sought to cool tempers over the Pixel Stand's $80 price tag by pointing out that other companies would license its custom fast charging standard. Belkin was the first, and still only, company to do so.

[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. In our testing, though, that isn't the case when it comes to the Galaxy S10+. The phone is able to work with a magnetic mount quite far up the back, with no loss in wireless charging functionality.
