As the competition rises in smartphone industry, companies are not leaving any stone un-turned to woo their customers. Companies are providing back to back features to their customers and fast charging feature is one such feature that every company is bidding right now. On the same track, smartphone vendors like Apple, Samsung, LG and others are providing their own fast charging technology to users. When these technologies are compared with each other, OnePlus 5T dash charging time emerge fastest of all smartphone vendors.
OnePlus 5T while performing Dash Charging
According to a recent study conducted by Tom’s Guide where they compared charging times of seven flagship smartphones such as OnePlus 5T, LG V30, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Google Pixel 2. Comparison was carried out in two rounds to find correct charging time of each flagship model. In first round, every smartphone was charged for 30 minutes and results were very surprising. To get the best results, each model’s brightness was set to minimum.
In the first round, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0) appears last out of Seven smartphone getting only 35 percent of battery juice in a time period of 30 minutes. Out of iPhones, recent one i.e. iPhone X was fastest getting 50 percent battery juice while iPhone 8 picks up 49 percent battery juice and iPhone 8 Plus managed to charge 47 percent. Here, 29-W charger was used for Apple smartphones instead of bundled charger. List was topped by OnePlus 5T which manages to rise to 59 percent in specified time frame followed by LG V30 which performed as per the expectations and managed to charge to 53 percent. Second last spot was backed by Google Pixel 2 which acquired only 38 percent battery juice.
First Round Charging Time Break Up
- OnePlus 5T – 59 percent
- LG V30 – 53 percent
- Apple iPhone X – 50 percent (used 29-W fast charger)
- iPhone 8 – 49 percent (used 29-W fast charger)
- iPhone 8 Plus – 47 percent (used 29-W fast charger)
- Google Pixel 2 – 38 percent
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – 35 percent
In the second round, flagship smartphones are left to charge for one hour with their respective in-box chargers. iPhones are tested with both bundled as well as fast charger. No changes were found in the results as OnePlus 5T managed to charge 93 percent of the battery followed by LG V30 which accumulated 86 percent juice in an hour. Third position was bagged by iPhone X reaching 81 percent of its battery but with fast charger. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus bagged 4th and 5th positions with near value of that iPhone X. Google Pixel 2 stands again at the 6th position in the last with 75 percent battery juice. Last position with no surprise is backed by Galaxy Note 8.
However, results were really disappointing for iPhones when they were left to charge with their bundled chargers. The iPhones returned with much lower readings of 58 percent, 55 percent and 37 percent on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X respectively after a full hour of charging.
Clearly, OnePlus 5T emerge as the winner reaching near to 60 percent charge in 30 minutes, thanks to its Dash Charge feature. Apart from latest flagship, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T and OnePlus 5 also have the Dash Charge feature. Looks Like that Apple needs to work on their bundled charger to satisfy their user needs.
