The OnePlus 5T is a great new $500 flagship phone that has the guts to take on much more expensive phones like the Apple iPhone 8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S8+ and the Google Pixel 2 XL.
Fast charging speeds compared
But what is the actual difference in performance between OnePlus' Dash Charge against Samsung's Adaptive Fast charging and the charge speeds of the iPhone 8 Plus and the Pixel 2 XL? OnePlus shows us in a video, and unsurpringly, the 5T is the winner. Watch the clip above to see just how much of a difference Dash Charge makes for fast charging.

Yeah, but do it like that every day and after half a year you will need a battery replacement. It's always preferable to use standard charging if you are not in a hurry. Why do you think Apple does not supply a fast charger as standard ? It's not because of cost, it's because they would need to replace a lot of batteries during the warranty period. I would always use standard charging, except when I am in a big hurry. Better safe than sorry.

Has this been proven? I'm genuinely asking for my Note8.

Right, Quickcharge (any kind of it, i.e quickcharge, dashcharge, adaptive charge, etc) has it's own industrial standard. They throughly test it for any possible bad effect, and acc makers must comply with that strict standard. Quick charge won't damage battery, but heat will, you shouldn't use your phone for gaming or demanding apps while it's charging (be it fast charge or slow charge) long answer:https://android.stackexchange.

Finally someone who knows the issues related to fast charging. If anyone plans to keep a device for more than a year one should avoid fast charging. I rather charge even slower than standard charging from my laptop overnight

You guys should really get your facts straight instead of spreading wrong information. Dash charge works having the control circuit in the charger itself instead of on the phone, meaning that the heat will stay off the phone, and the only thing in fast charge that degrades batteries is heat (taking only about charge) I have a oneplus 3 since launch, I use it almost every time when I'm charging it and I have the same SoT of the first days (slightly better because of updates)
