Charge test: Battle of the fast chargers

10 April, 2015
Smartphone batteries piggybacked on the growing screen size to go up in capacity to support both the screen and faster chipsets. Slower to deplete, the new batteries also proved slower to charge so manufacturers tackled the issue with new standards.

    The closest one to the Oppo Find 7's charge time of 1H:15M is the Galaxy S6 Edge, but it has a smaller battery pack at 2600 mAh vs 2800 mAh on the Oppo Find 7. It's close but Oppo's fast charging tech still comes out on top.

      I've been through so many phones and no phone up to this date can charge faster than the Oppo Find 7. Thing went from 0 to 100 real quick lol sorry i had to throw that in there. NO but really it took 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach a full charge from 0. I don't see anyone on this list beating that yet.. Oppo has the fastest charging tech hands down. I mean look at the N3! It's charging time is also impressive!!

                      Why is not mentioned that S6 will charge slower if the screen is on. Let's say you want to use the phone while charging because you are in a hurry

                        It was a great and usefull review however gsma sud have included some major power banks and considered the timings it takes to charge the phone.

                            The LG G4 supports Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0, although the charger in the box does not.

                                  hi, anyone here try charging iPhone 6+ with Samsung 2A charger that come with Note 3 or Note 8?
                                  I usually don't charge my iPhone with Apple 1A charger that come with iPhone 6+ but with my Innergie 4.2A charger cause it had 2 ports. It happened yesterday I forgot to bring my Innergie 4.2A charger, so I charge with my wife's Samsung 2A charger. After 30 mins it only go up by 8%. I timed later after I reached home using my Innergie 4.2A charger it go up 24% in 30 mins. I start thinking is it something wrong with my Samsung 2A charger? But when I charge my Note 4 with that it is fine, so I try again charging iPhone with the Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger that come with my Note 4 also fine. I have yet to try my Anker 8A charger but it should be fine. My question is : is it because Apple program iPhone so that it charge slower when using Samsung charger in the iOS 8.3 update?

                                      I miss the Moto X 2014 in the tests.
                                      I have one that came with a Turbo Charger and is impressive the speed that it charges the fone. And the Motorola Turbo Charger has another step of voltage, the 12V 1.2A, but I'm not quite sure if the fone uses this step, called "turbo 2" in the charger.

                                        Bro, fast charging is ok, as most of the late Android smartphone which provides fast charging has good battery, it doesn't downgrade the battery at all as I have been using Note 4 for more than 6 months and it is doing good. But yes, if you depleted fully, there might be a chance of the battery messing up in the near future.
                                        P.S- Those fast charging of downgrading can only happen to the phones that do not originally provide fast charging at all.
