Fast chargers that come with your phone do one and the same thing - they top up your handset quicker than those puny bricks of yesteryear that took many hours to do the same thing. Every manufacturer, however, calls their system differently, despite that it all boils down to that.
It's confusing to know the differences between Samsung's Adaptive Fast Charge, Apple's Fast Charge, the OnePlus DashCharge, Qualcomm's Quick Charge, Motorola's Turbo Charge and so on. This is why the infographic below explaining what are the differences between the manufacturers' standards is so timely. Bear in mind that Apple doesn't supply the fast charger in the iPhone 8
, 8 Plus or iPhone X
boxes, so you have to get it as an extra
Also, devices like the new Xiaomi Mi 8
may support Qualcomm's latest Quick Charge 4+
, but such chargers aren't readily available, and the difference in speeds would be negligible compared to what the stock 3.0 brick is able to achieve anyway, with its hour and a half from zero to a full charge. So, whose standard wins? Well, both our own observations and hard math puts Huawei's Super Charge system at the top when it comes to fast charging, with the whopping 47mAh/minute, pretty impressive, especially when you are charging phones with huge batteries like the P20 Pro
