Re: wireless
Wireless charging is an amazing feature and necessary for everyone, considering the power consumption of smartphones. Nowadays everybody needs to carry extra charger when going outside.

Re: wireless
Yes shakeeb, nowadays adding processors to enhance the speed or increasing the megapixels is being done by every smartphone manufacturers. To get the advantage over the competitor you have to come up with something more innovative. Having said that this wireless charging can pay back the company only for a couple of years until every other set will have this feature.

Re: wireless
I like the advantage given by HTC. This is an important after sales benefit given to the customers. Therefore in my view I prefer the HTC phone.

@yalanand: In terms of features there isn't an extreme difference among two of them, I would also prefer to have the one with the better looks and for me it is M9 right now. Wireless charging would be a plus for me when there would be quite a few hotspots around.

Re: wireless
Wireless charging may be one of the best features of the S6, but they took away the micro SD card slot, waterproofing, and the removable battery? That kills it for me. Why would they do that?

Re: wireless
I would buy the HTC M9 just for its  Uh Oh advantage. I don't care about the features of a smartphone because whatever the features may be it gets my office job done, some calls and some social texting and whatsapping and some gaming is all I do and the M9 (it looks better than the S6 and probably is the best looking smartphone out there) is more than suited for such tasks.

Re: wireless
@Thomas: Wireless charging is the newest trend when it comes to convenience, because IKEA has been making furniture that charges the phone wirelessly if you put the phone on it. If that kind of furniture sells like wildfire, then wireless charging on the S6 would be better and people would go for the S6.

>Wireless charging may not be a killer feature, but it's a convenient one. 

I'd say it's one of the best features of the S6.
