Samsung phones, like its competitor Nexus, does not come with the wireless charging feature enabled. Well, the good news is that there are many third party hardware available using which you can make the phone wireless charging enabled. The best to use is the official Samsung Galaxy Wireless Charging cover receiver, but as I said there are other options available to use.
Today, particularly I am referring to the paper thin or card like wireless charge receivers. These receivers are available at Amazon or Ebay which in the price range of $ 5 to $ 15.
The receiver makes a touch connection to the charging slots on the back of the phone. It is made of the a coil connected to a mini flexible circuit board. The circuit board is externally connected to the battery slots. The coil is responsible for gathering the power and thus charge the battery.
Although it shows a little thickness or a small bulge on the back of the phone. Just imagine that you have placed your credit card on the battery of the Galaxy S5 and then closed the cover. A somewhat similar bulge (or lesser) you will get after placing the paper thin receiver on the battery. There is very less chance that the paper thin receiver will get displaced from the exact position, that is because it has a stick material which helps with the grip.
Samsung do not approve any of these generic or third party receiver and recommends its own wireless charger receiver cover. However, with a price of an average of $10 its worth a shot and guess what it works too. Well, it works for me so it should work for you. Believe me my statistics says that there are more people buying these low cost wireless charge receivers then the expensive ones.
Below table shows the list of paper thin wireless charge receiver which I recommend.
