Not everybody have a whole day tim... moreIf you prefer to not charge your phone at night and then fuck the battery up with 100 watts that's completely your choice, but it is one of the worst things you could do for longevity. Especially when phone batteries are getting harder and more expensive to replace.

Shadocx, 28 Jan 2022But none of these Chinese brand have 4k video recording on ... moreby the way...the 12Pro do have OIS in the main camera:
50 MP, f/1.9, 24mm (wide), 1/1.28", 1.22µm, Dual Pixel PDAF, OIS

and regarding to OS updates, I do not keep my phones more than 18 months...I sell them and buy another and keep it for the next 18 months!!!!

To each their own tho, if someone likes faster charging then they can use it. As for the heat they do not overheat perhaps, but the safety is still a concern for me as the reports of exploding batteries are quite frankly very concerning

We are living in time where companies spend lot of money in marketing than Research and Development.

Shadocx, 28 Jan 2022But none of these Chinese brand have 4k video recording on ... moreFor me those features are not critical....the main ones that makes me pay more than $1000USD for a phone are:

1) big LTPO AMOLED screen with best color accuracy / interpretation and max brightness available
2) fast charging battery / enough mAh for whole day
3) fast memory & processor (no lags launching apps)
4) plenty of RAM and storage capacity
5) decent rear camara in good & low light conditions
6) dual speakers

with chinesse brands I can get all these features (and many more) for under $1,000USD. I do not follow the marketing hype of Samsung & Apple (saving money in pandemic times is a must).

Anonymous, 28 Jan 202248C is cool to you? To me , cool is below 30. Ok, now name the phone, and send your source.
But do phones with 20W chargers stay below 30°C?
I have one and it doesn't.

Beside PlayStation, do you ever see any ad of another sony product on tv?
There is a sports channel here that half of the ads they show daily are samsung phones, basically every 10 minutes.

Samsung spends over $1 billion with marketing. I'd be surprised if sony spends 5% of this.

I have only ... more20W is so slow when you're in a rush, it takes more than a hour, the 50-120W charging techs from OPPO(used in Realme, OnePlus) and Vivo seems to stay quite cool, which phone did you see get hot by charging faster than 20W?

Many brands use software to decrease speed after 50%.

Anyway, those 120W do not even reach this value. Peak is 105-107.

They even make a note on battery care during their unveiling of phones, and explain their steps to ensure it's safety and other optimisations. I used some of their phones earlier, as they were still available in this region. Xperia is very underrated and sells less but their phones are simply fantastic

CptPower, 28 Jan 2022Man my Mi 11 lite 5G with 33W charging is way better than 2... moreProblem is proprietary charging protocols.
Just getting a new charging of 12-15W to avoid damage of fast charging is not simple.

15W charger from any other maker will be slower than using a 15W from the phone maker.

Not everyone plans to get new phone every 12 months. Xiaomi claims 80% ofter 2 months. If phone has 5000mAh, loss is gonna be about 500mAh after 1 year. Too much.

Samsung sells much more than xiaomi, still much easier to find on internet explosions of xiaomi than samsung.

Worst thing for battery is heat. None of the chinese phones with 65W or more charge at lower temperature , all them easily pass 45 celsius.

How do you explain this ( stop at 2:32) ? https://youtu.be/UKLamDl_x78

Peak 57.4 degrees, phone was turned off ..

Also the fast charging has another flaw. All phones with more than 100W are restricted to 5000mAh or less, while some phones with more than 5000 has 80 or less.

Dual cell takes more space than single battery system. You are not going to see something like 5500mAh + 120W.

I don't mind the slow charging speed, but care the battery lifespan.

My MiPad 5 battery life after 1-2 months remain 94%
But S21 which use for 4 months still at 98%

And in case of brand Xiaomi for same or even better prices gives a lot better or specced phones athan the competition.
