Couple weeks ago I ordered a white Nokia DT-900 wireless charger from Amazon for $32 with Prime. I just decided to order another one for the office and saw that the price is now $45? A $13 increase? Why could this be?

I am loving my Spigen NeoHybrid case for my N5. I'm typically the guy who doesn't use cases. I hate losing the natural OEM feeling. But the NeoHybrid feels so good in the hand and looks very stylish

Heads up, non-sponsors! After less than one day of using my black Cruzerlite Androidified case for my Nexus 5, I decided to go with a hardshell version instead; this one is a TPU (like soft rubber) ma

I got the Nokia TD-900 charger today from Amazon.it took close to 3 hours to charge the N5 (started 5%)not bad   at all  .

That's easy -- supply and demand. I see it often on Amazon, a lot of prices seem to change daily, up or down anywhere from a few cents to a few bucks.

Yep, it was just the first time I see an item's price change in Amazon so I was surprised.

 

Anyways, thanks JoeJoeJoe for the AT&T link, I just bought 1 from them!

 

I always thought this wireless charging was a gimmick but it is so convenient! Just dropping the phone on the pad without having to deal with a cable etc. (more useful at night...)

Anyone thinking of picking up the Nexus wireless charger from the Play Store?  Price is a little high compared to some of the alternatives out there.

 

https://play.google.com/store/devices/details/Nexus_Wireless_Charger?id=nexus_wireless_charger

 

 

I just got mine in the mail today.  It's very nicely built but the charging area doesn't seem all that wide.  I would recommend sticking with less expensive products elsewhere.

 

A+ for build quality and design but really the magnet isn't strong enough to center it like the touchtone.  The idea of having a charger like the touchtone was appealing to me, but sadly this is not it.

 

Pros:

Nice grippy/sticky surface on the bottom that has made it stick to my desk without sticking

Nice small design, easy to pick phone up off charger

Good build quality/materials - very minimalist.

Works with my slim case without issue.

 

Cons:

Narrow charging zone. 

Magnet is not as strong as I would have liked.

Magnet does not guide the phone into place at all.

Expensive.

That's a great summary of it.

Bought 3 DT-900s from AT&T's online store; set up two so far (one at home, one at work) and they work great with both the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. Just need to decide where I'm going to put #3  :)

Yup.  Got 2 of them from my local AT&T store for $20 each.  Love love LOVE them!  One on my desk at work and one next to my bed.  I always thought wireless charging was a silly luxury that i'd never take advantage of.  Now i can't imagine not having it!

Do you know if it will charge with a tpu case on the nexus 5

I think the magnet issue could be because of your case? Most video reviews show that the charger will actually hold the phone while you swing the charger around and even upside down.

 

But any type of case will definitely diminish the strength of the magnets.

What was kind of cool about the touchtone charger is that the phone sort of gravitated to the charging zone.  While sure, the magnet holds the phone in place (with or without a case) it doesn't really serve any purpose.

Does the magnet lift the touchtone when you try to pick up the device?

no, touchstone stays in place.

 

Overall, it's cool, but I think there are better value QI chargers on the market.  It's definitely better than the original nexus wireless charger.

But the NeoHybrid feels so good in the hand and looks very stylish, that I don't mind it at all. I'm shocked that I have found a case that I'm happy with. I'm going to get one for my work iPhone now.

Anyone have a car dock that they use for their Nexus 5?  I had an EVO LTE with their car dock and grew to love it.  I was able to use Tasker to turn on my bluetooth and put the phone in car mode automatically.  The CD dock that was shown earlier won't work for me, because the cd disc in my altima is actually below the radio and in an awkward location. (six disc changer version).

 

EDIT: I found this car dock at Amazon and one reviewed mentioned the Nexus 5 is compatible right out of the box due to Qi charging.  If only they had the Qi charger built into this magnet.  That would be AWESOME!

What ever you buy don't get the one you hook to the air vent . I learned that the hard way. Did u check the cup mount holder,or the one you connect to the 12v ? For both are too low for me

Both of these options are too low for me as well.  Thanks for the thought though.

Not a bad holder. they have the iMagnet CD slot phone holder too . I wonder if the magnet strong enough to hold the phone on a rough ride :-)

I use the X-Way magnet solution from Tetrax and it works wonders. Just remember to slide the phone off the magnet instead of pulling the phone straight off. It comes with different sized metal clips that are adhesives. I put it on my case(Spigen Ultra Hybrid) and it sticks well. Have not had it fall off at all. The X-Way magnet piece does hook on to a single vent but does not damage it at all.

I have an adjustable ProClip mount in my car, it is the best car mount I have ever used. It uses pressure and adhesive tape to attach a vehicle-specific mount at a certain driver-accessible location (mine is to the right of the radio), and you connect that with the mount of your choosing. I got a universal swivel holder so I can drop in any device, case or not, and it will always fit. This is the best mounting system I have ever used; the only drawback is that it is not portable. You can remove it easily when you sell your car, but it's not something you will actively switch between vehicles.

 

I also have a Mountek nGroove, I believe someone mentioned that earlier. It slides into your CD slot, and a tension screw keeps it in place. It has a similar universal adjustable phone holder. I also have their nGroove Snap, which is very similar but uses a magnet instead of an adjustable holder. It holds ok, but if you have a heavy phone and hit a big bump, it might slide. Both of these work well as long as your CD slot is in a good spot for it.

Heads up, non-sponsors! After less than one day of using my black Cruzerlite Androidified case for my Nexus 5, I decided to go with a hardshell version instead; this one is a TPU (like soft rubber) material. The case is in mint condition, as it was only on the phone for a few hours while I was around the house. Fits snug, looks good.

 

So, I'm giving it away to help support S4GRU! The first PM I receive from a member who makes either their first-ever donation to S4GRU (let's say a minimum of $25) or bumps themselves up to Premier Sponsor (at least $25) gets it shipped to them for free! The clock is ticking.. I will be heading out of town Tuesday night, and would love to send it before I go.

    • I agree. I think AT&T site SB25 at Oksams corner would be a much better fit. 
    • Anyone in central PA region/Shentel land on this phone that can speak to recent behavior?  Considering upgrading this this or possibly the LG V60 5G otherwise and moving my wife to my G8X, but trying to get opinion/feedback on it.  If you chime in, state whether you're still pure legacy Sprint vs say TNX mode as well please for clarity.
    • Thanks for the analysis on those sites! The Juanita-Woodinville Sprint tower at 47.74330, -122.19131 was mostly a surprise because:  The T-Mobile tower at 47.74440, -122.18346 is only 2000ft away and the T-Mobile tower at 47.74641, -122.20140 is only 2700ft away. The fact it NEVER showed the 312-250 PLMN. This is despite me trying hard to find out if it or the Sprint tower at 47.747532, -122.18941 were going to be keep sites.  If this were to fill that geographic dead zone, I would imagine something located closer to Oskam's Corner would be more suitable. I guess it is a case of a bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.  As for T-Mobile's roll-out of B41/N41, I have to say I am impressed with the speed of deployment. Driving north on I-405 from the start at I-5, I locked my phone to B-41. I did not lose my T-Mobile B41 connection until I reached Kirkland. Even then, there was only a small gap and I likely would have been able to reach north of the 124th in Kirkland without issue. It seems like they are upgrading a number of sites in suburban Snohomish county near the King/SnoCo border.
    • Looks like they're continuing their streak of buying up T-Mobile MVNOs. I wonder how they plan on unifying all of them under one brand down the line, if they plan on doing that at all.
    • Block the DNS lookups (return NX or something like 127.0.0.1) for epdg.epc.mnc260mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc120.mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc530.mcc312.pub.3gppnetwork.org And/or block UDP outbound to 208.54.0.0/16 port 4500. You could probably just block all outbound to that subnet, but if you want to be sure it just blocks wifi calling, also restrict to that UDP port. The latter is probably preferred, but the DNS block should work if you don't have the ability to set outbound firewall rules on your router. Regarding the handoffs, that has always worked reliably for me. But you might have to make sure that "always on mobile data" is enabled under developer options.
