One of the best features on the OnePlus 5T is Dash Charge – it makes other other phones feel painfully slow to charge. The company decided to highlight that in its new add – how much will the phone charge in 30 minutes with the screen on?
The 5T phone got from 2% to 57% in that half hour. Which is pretty much in line with our own tests, we got to 65% in the same time, but with the screen off. How did certain competing flagships stack up? Not that great.
Check out the video, it only takes a minute:
Of course, to be fair we need to take into account the battery capacities of the phones involved. The OnePlus 5T does not have the biggest battery here, the Galaxy S8+ and Pixel 2 XL are essentially even here. The 5T does have the fastest charger though. Here's a table for easy comparison
|Phone||Battery||Charge (in 30min)||In box charger|
|iPhone 8 Plus||2,691mAh||16%||5W (!)|
|Samsung Galaxy S8+||3,500mAh||17%||15W|
|Google Pixel 2 XL||3,520mAh||11%||10.5W|
Forgot to list king of all VOOC Flash Charge! 70% in 30 minutes.
Try the Nokia 8 it charges over 60% in 30 mins. Unfair not to include the Nokia 8. And it lasts longer.
My essential do not heat up when charging. its do use 5volt 3 amp and is 27 watt. Charge even faster than one plus as well ( i admit its 3000 mah versus 3300 mah in one plus )
