    Wireless charging is alive & well w/the G FLEX. While not natively built-in, it can be accomplished w/a Universal "TYPE A" Micro USB QI Wireless Charging Receiver , such as the one listed here :

    Amazon.com: [Aftermarket Product] Black Type A Micro USB Qi Wireless Universal Charger Tag Receiver Coil For LG G2: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Note that any receiver rated less than 750mA output will lead to extremely slow charging, which in turn will lead to a high-temperature condition, which leads to even slower charging, & so on.

    As mfg estimate is 3.5 hrs to fully charge this phone w/the provided OEM Charger & cable, expect double the charging time when using the above QI Receiver & your QI charging dock of choice.

    I'm currently charging wirelessly, using the above receiver pad & NOKIA FATBOY charging dock.

    I'll check after an hour & provide an estimate of real-world 0-100% charge time.

    UPDATE :
    After 2hrs charge time, (1hr w/phone powered on, but, screen-off & 1hr w/phone powered down {off} ), I'm getting about 15% an hour. Same rate, more or less, whether the phone was on or off.

    Sooooo, the basic rule of thumb is 1/2 the charging speed vs traditional OEM supplied charger, about 6hs vs 3hrs.

LG G Flex

The LG G Flex was the first smartphone to come with a flexible display. Its 6-inch display comes with a curved design that seems to wrap around your face. It also has a 13MP camera, 3,500 mAh battery, and Snapdragon 800.
