Essen, 29 Apr 2020Apologies if it's a lame query, but from whatever internet ... moreyes it does, there are research paper where the battery lives reduces by half if you charge it above 5v or charge it above 80%. Although the improvement in charging tech came a long way from it but manufacturers are willing to sacrifice life cycle to get faster charging, since 500 cycles are enough for an average lifetime of a product

Apologies if it's a lame query, but from whatever internet research I have done so far, I am unable to fathom this: Does any of the various quick charging tech ruin long term battery life/longevity? In the sense does your 4000mah battery become 3600 mah in under six months?

Ragerino, 28 Apr 2020It's nice and all, but where are actually all these phones ... moreHow would you know about fast charging? You don't know much else it seems.. Fast charging is more efficient. Less strain on battery. As with all charging of lithium battery phones there is no need to charge about 80% and charging should be done prior to 20% both so that slow charging can not come into affect. Learn first, comment later...

Ragerino, 28 Apr 2020It's nice and all, but where are actually all these phones ... moreReally? Theres lots. In fact the GSMARENA website and app both feature phone finder. Have a look and you'll see the vast array of 700 chipset fones, 710, 712, 720G, 730, 730G and now the 765 and 765G. Pre 765 are lower cost and are in many smartphones.

Orchard Inc., 28 Apr 2020You are correct. My understanding having read the somewh... moreYep. All their marketing states that QC3+ is cheaper. The only difference I can see is that they specify USB A to USB C, where as in QC4+ its USB C to USB C. USB C is newer and being plugged (excuse the pun) all over. For example, new Samsung and Apple chargers are this way. QC3+ and QC4+ both can do upto 50% in 15 mins but apparently QC3+ is for the poorer people with old connections lol. I've a Mi 8 one of the few phones to have QC4+ but apparently not QC3+ so no choice. £40 in UK for QC4+ charger. Very rare to find at the moment. Jokes, though I do want one :)

Spanky, 28 Apr 2020Now, I don't know what's going on with this news article, b... moreYou are correct.

My understanding having read the somewhat baffling press release from Qualcomm, Quick Charge 3+ focuses on bringing advanced fast charging at a lower price point, as both Quick Charge 3+ and 4 provides 0% to 50% battery charge in 15 minutes ("in a typical smartphone" - quote from Qualcomm, whatever "typical" is meant to mean).

In fact Qualcomm mentions, and I quote, "Xiaomi’s Mi 10 Lite Zoom, powered by the Snapdragon 765G, is the world’s first smartphone with both Quick Charge 4+ (QC4) and Quick Charge 3+ (QC3+) charging technology."

So perhaps the implication of QC3+ is cheaper than QC4 ?

Now, I don't know what's going on with this news article, but the Snapdragon 765G (or non-G) already has Quick Charge 4+, according to Qualcomm's official website. I have its technical sheet downloaded since many weeks ago. So, why would they want to implement a lower version of Quick Charge???

Ragerino, 28 Apr 2020It's nice and all, but where are actually all these phones ... moreI've been looking for a phone with the Snapdragon 765G chipset, for the past 2-3 months, and I can tell you there are a bunch of them! You have the Nokia 8.3, Motorola Edge, Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G, just to name a few, off the top of my head. Several other companies use it too, like Meizu, LG and so on.

You people are correct, charging standards should be in Wh not in varying size battery percentage, like ev charging standards. Soc makers are forcing their proprietory charging standards on to manufacturers. Their already exists USB Power Delivery till 100Wh/h.

It's nice and all, but where are actually all these phones with the 700 chipset? All i see in the market are mostly 600 low end and 800 flagships.
Btw, fast charging may be good for when you travel, but on day to day basis, it just serves to age your battery twice as fast.

Low key telling people to upgrade more often. Hope it can be disabled as a potential Velvet purchaser. But only because jokers like the mass market chose to keep buying despite the added irrepairability of each new shiny stuff.

  • geekbench72

what will be the charging rate ??5v/4amp or 9v/2.5amp or 15v/1.5amp or 5v/5amp or at what speed the phone will get charged ??? 22.5w or 27w??
