The wait is over. Smartphone makers are finally adding wireless charging capabilities to their handsets. Forget about hunting for that microUSB port or dealing with a rat’s nest of cables. All you need to do is drop your phone right on a charging mat to give it juice. Each of these smartphones uses the Qi wireless charging standard. The technology works by taking advantage of the principle of magnetic induction, allowing power to be transferred from a charging mat or even a speaker dock to a smartphone’s battery.

The first U.S. smartphone to sport a 1080p display, the 5-inch Droid DNA is a beautiful beast of a handset. This phone delivers quad-core power, a sharp and fast 8-MP camera and Beats Audio in a relatively slim design. The DNA's 2,020 mAh battery will get you roughly 6.5 hours of battery life on 4G. And when it's time to replenish you can use any compatible Qi-enabled device.
