Every smartphone manufacturer wants to “outdo” competitors in any technological aspect. Some focus on mobile camera, others performance, others for extra accessories. Sometimes it seems that the background of this race they often forget about the basic functions of the device, particularly the battery. The charging time of the smartphone is another point to which I draw the attention of users. Sometimes the difference of this indicator between devices is very significant.
Edition GizmoChina tested five popular mobile phones, including the Huawei Mate 9, Samsung Galaxy Pro C9, R9 Oppo Plus Vivo X7 and the iPhone 7 Plus to determine which one charges the fastest. The battery capacity of Android-devices around 4000 mAh, the flagship Apple – 2910 mAh.
First come the Huawei Mate 9, which is fully charged built-in battery in just 90 minutes. iPhone 7 Plus by this time was loaded with only 57%. In second place was the Oppo R9 Plus, who coped with the task in 100 minutes.
iPhone 7 Plus finished last in his charge left lots of time is 196 minutes. Thus, even with a less capacious battery, the smartphone from Apple is charged more than two times slower than Huawei Mate 9.
The result is iPhone 7 Plus due to the fact that only in this model, all involved in the testing there is no support for fast charging. Apple plans to solve the problem in the next generation of smartphones. According to rumors, the iPhone 8 will save the Lightning interface, but will receive support fast charging technology Type-C Power Delivery.
