OnePlus video shows how Dash Charge outperforms Samsung's Adaptive Charging

Rapid charging has become a major feature on new smartphones. Because large capacity batteries take up too much room inside handsets, manufacturers would rather keep battery size down while allowing them to recoup their power faster. The rapid recharge feature in the OnePlus 3 is called Dash Charge and promises "a day's power in half an hour." Samsung has its own Adaptive Charging, which is supposed to quickly power up the battery in the Samsung Galaxy S7.

OnePlus decided to take on the third highest selling Android handset by posting a video showing the superiority of Dash Charge versus Samsung's system. The first challenge resulted in Dash Charge charging up the battery in the OnePlus 3 to 64% in 30 minutes; in the same time, the Samsung Galaxy S7 battery was charged up to 50%.

In the second challenge, no clock was displayed. But the big difference was that both phones had their screen kept on while charging, and this led to an even larger difference between the two handsets. This time, Dash Charge quickly filled up the tank on the battery to 67% while the Galaxy S7 was 23% charged. That can make all the difference in the world if you need the screen on to do some work while you have the battery charging. By the way, both phones employ a 3000mAh battery.

Score one for the OnePlus 3's Dash Charge. You can check out this battle for yourself by clicking on the video at the top of this story!
