OnePlus says Dash Charge allows the 3T to be charged faster than the Google Pixel XL
OnePlus is so proud of Dash Charge that it just released a video to show us how fast the technology is. The company took its OnePlus 3T and pitted it against the Google Pixel XL, charging the two Snapdragon 821-based phones at the same time to see which one gets a full battery first.
As you'll discover in the video - embedded below - the OnePlus 3T reaches 100% in 1 hour and 30 minutes - half an hour before the Pixel XL. It's worth mentioning that the Pixel XL packs a 3450 mAh battery - slightly more powerful than the 3400 mAh battery of the OnePlus 3T - and this obviously disadvantages the Pixel XL when it comes to charging speeds, though not by much.
We do agree with the fact that Dash Charge is a very fast battery charging technology, but we wouldn't say it's the fastest, as we've seen better results on other devices. For example, according to our own tests, the Google Nexus 6P - which also packs a 3450 mAh battery - charges from 0 to 100% in 1 hour and 29 minutes. As a side note, while the Pixel XL and Nexus 6P have Snapdragon chipsets inside, they don't use Qualcomm's famous Quick Charge technology, instead relying on the benefits that USB Type-C is offering.
