First, it takes more time than the traditional cable. Secondly, answering calls and working with a smartphone while it is on the docking station is not very convenient.
Metal and electromagnetic induction are not compatible, so wireless charging is usually available only to expensive smartphones with a glass or ceramic back panel.

The latest in the smartphone industry is more popular. We offer a look at the best mobile phones of 2019, in the arsenal of which there is this function.

The relatively low cost of the Mi 9 is due to the fact that Xiaomi has saved some places. In the smartphone there is no heat / moisture protection, headphone jack and a slot for memory cards. However, with these shortcomings, the Mi 9 looks decent.
