IF YOU need a reason to make friends with your iPhone friends, this is it.
There’s a feature the iPhone can’t do – and it’s bound to make you popular with your friends in times of need.
“This is a feature that Samsung users can show off” TikToker Hamza Nadeem showed his 235,000 followers.
The feature in question is a very useful battery sharing tool that uses wireless charging technology.
That means any Samsung smartphone with wireless charging can provide emergency juice to someone else’s phone.
The recipient doesn’t have to be a Samsung phone, but they do need to have wireless charging onboard.
This means you can even come to the rescue of iPhone owners.
But that means you’ll use up all your power, so make sure you have enough spare batteries before giving it away.
Doing it from a Samsung phone is easy.
All you need to do is swipe down to open the notification bar and tap Share power wirelessly button.
Then all you have to do is turn the phone upside down so it’s face down.
Take another phone that requires charging and place it face up, horizontally, on top of the Samsung phone.
You will then see the battery begin to charge.
Huawei was the first smartphone maker to introduce reverse wireless charging with the Mate 20 Pro in 2018.
Samsung started offering it in 2019, starting with the S10 series.
However, keep in mind that wireless charging isn’t as fast as wired charging, so it’s not some quick fix.
It’s probably best for desperate emergencies only to provide a little power at a time.
