    I bought a Pixel Stand wireless charger for my iPhone XS. The design is minimalistic and it looks like made by Apple. It detects and charges my iPhone immediately when placed on the holder (via portrait or horizontal mode). I only have it for one day and no issues so far.

    Fast charger. It comes with USB-C cable and power adapter in the box.

    Assuming there is no real benefit in using the Pixel stand. It will just charge like other regular wireless charger right?

    Yes, it will charge like a regular fast charger and you don't get the extra features if you have a Pixel 3 phone. I bought it because it looks sleek and no visible logo. Like I mentioned before, it could be easily made by Apple. Very nice on my desk at work!

    According to reviews, such as this one, fast charging works only for Pixel 3 phones. For all other phones, it charges at 5W.

    I was going to order it too but didn't after finding out its charging limitations.

    Logitech Powered is probably a better choice for those that are not price conscious but wants Apple-like design.

    If you are less design conscious, I think Anker PowerWave Fast Charging Stand is the best value when it goes on sale, as it does now at $36.99 (Deal of the Day). Many cheaper charging stand does not include a fast charger (typically more than $10) that is required for fast wireless charging capability.
