75Â€ to buy a cable and charger. A friend of mine bought a chinese phone, namely the redmi note 3 and for 170 Â€ and you are asking for almost half this phone's price for a charger set. I forgot to say it is a decent phone although scaringly cheap
The Apple tax is becoming too high. It's inexcusable that this isn't in the iPad Pro's box.
Why ape still messing with lightning crap and don't make everything in usb c? Don't understand.. Smartphones should have usb c 3.1 speed loong time ago..
useful if your usage is similar to the test where it is being used while charging. otherwise, the increase in speed should be less when there's no usage of the tablet device.

A lot of laptops are sold with only 4gb of ram (ie. Hp) but are upgradable to 8 or even 16, maybe gsmarena should call them out for not including more ram to start with.

Plus it's an oversized tablet, take a look at android tablets with the same sized battery and you'll see what charger they have.

All phones and tablets above $600 have fast chargers and some below that price point have them too. This may not be a big deal for a cheap phone, but for a $800 tablet!
That math is in correct. It's not 64% faster, it's almost 300% faster. When comparing numbers like this, given X amount of time, you go [better amount] ÷ [worse amount] = [percent better]. So 14÷5=2.8, or 280% faster. You could say the other is 64% slower, but that's not as impressive as saying 280% faster.

What's the big deal; aren't there Android phones that support Qualcomm Quick Charge but only come with a slower non-Quick Charge adapter, too?
This is why I left Apple. USB-C is superior than Lightning in every way, from offering an all-in-one connectivity solution and 4K video over a user friendly port design to high power charging. And Apple partook in it's design too! But they are run by a bean counter with no imagination, so along with releasing a 3 year old phone design (without wireless charging or stereo audio recording on video), they continue to flog expensive accessories. HP are doing it right, their new transportables have one or two USB-C ports.
This is the reason I stopped buying Apple product's. Matter of principle I don't like being ripped off.
