Phones which support wireless charging?

    I'm starting my search for my next phone and a key feature I want is wireless charging. I had a charging port break once.. and now that I own a wireless charging mat, it's just a 'must have' that my next phone support it.

    But.. trying to do do searches for phones with this support, for me, hasn't been an easy thing to do.

    Is there a site that includes this as a feature?

    I'm currently on Verizon, but I'm not set on staying with Verizon.

    The nexus 4 does but you'd have to leave Verizon.

    The LG Spectrum 2 has wireless charging built in (not needing a special back).

    I'm like you, but have even more requirements:
    - wireless charging (man, it's seductive)
    - replaceable battery
    - extended battery
    - desk dock
    - mobile dock

    I've more or less learned that removable batter = wireless charging is likely possible... and most of these have removable SD cards too. Unless a phone hypes that it's non-removable battery has wireless charging out of the box, it can't do it.

    Sadly, it still an annoying chore to search Amazon to see if a wireless/inductive back exists.

    I liked a lot of the Motorola phones, even more so that Google owns them, so updates should be easier to do.. but they all seem to be non-removable batteries and are off the list.

    I used to want a desk dock too, but with Airdriod, that's good enough. I don't do it often so the "hassle" of turning it on isn't a big deal. If I did a lot of phone to laptop work, I'd require a dock too.

    I think the phone for me is going to end up being the Galaxy SIII -- with the S4 out soon, the SIII price should drop and be a great value. For it, it's really a tad too large... I'm a "front pocket phone carrier".

    Phonescoop seems to provide an incomplete set of results, because it doesn't list the Samsung Galaxy 3. Maybe it only lists phones that come with the wireless charging back? That jibes with the empty results for the LG Revolution, because it also doesn't come with the wireless charging back.

    Here are the first set of five results when I navigated via Carrier = Verizon, then selected the first (most recent) five phones and did a Compare. Under Subheading "Features" you see "Inductive Charging", unless no phones in that group support that feature:

    Iterating in groups of five (the max that Phonescoop allows for compares), Phonescoop shows the following Verizon phones offering inductive charging out of the box:

    LG Lucid 2
    Nokia Lumia 822
    LG Spectrum 2
