Huawei's latest fast charging tech might be the fastest yet

11 July 2018
The charger just got certified on 3C. It could be twice as fast as the current charger on the P20 series.

personally I would want a phone that is slightly thicker, for a better hold, and more room for battery, and of course in doing so avoid the bending-gate

mobile phones nowadays are too sissy thin...

SBTC, 12 Jul 20185V and 5A is 25W of power, not 50W LUL. Fail math.You decided to read that but not my second reply where i clarified that Super VOOC has 10V @5A.
It was a writing mistake. Not that i don't know what's 5*5 or 5*10. Don't try to be smart a$$

but essentially this is not an invention, just another marketing trick, maybe they're underclocking it on normal usage, and use the real normal clock at GPU Turbo mode

Charging gets faster while battery life keeps going down.

Back in the day they're used to getting full in one night and lasts for two or three nights, with ±quarter of nowadays average battery capacity.

MsZero, 12 Jul 2018This sounds really cool on paper but I'm worry about battery lif... morei feel the same regarding your last sentence. when i get a phone that supports fast charging, i'll still keep a regular charger around to protect the battery, even if it's an Xperia (they still use Qnovo tech, right?). ideally, i'd buy an adapter with two ports, one fast and one slow

MsZero, 12 Jul 2018This sounds really cool on paper but I'm worry about battery lif... moreIndeed, fast charging could also catch the phone on fire. I think Huawei knows what they’re doing and probably has found a way for it be safe

This sounds really cool on paper but I'm worry about battery life span dropping because of this.

Fast charge has killed 3 batteries of my note 4 in the last 2 years and right now my forth one is on its final days. That's the only thing that worries me really.

As some say, I guess this is fine when you are on a hurry but not for daily use.

Also, that tech isn't technically real now. You can't just say it's the best without trying it or seeing a review of it. That's just a listing not a review.
And as you "commend" Chinese OEMs because they are innovative, you'll have no problem to enumerate their innovations they did this year. You can rule out tri-cameras and full-screen sliding phones. So I'll wait.
