iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X became the first smartphones Apple, which officially support fast charging. But how impressive is the result of the new iPhone compared to the flagships on Android? Specialists from Tom's Guide decided to find out.
To do this, the experts used the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, OnePlus 5T, LG V30, Google Pixel 2 and Galaxy Note 8. To charge the iPhone, we used a proprietary 29W adapter and a Lightning-USB-C cable. Leader after the first 30 minutes of charging was OnePlus 5T – during this time it was charged by almost 60%. LG V30 could reach 53%, and iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus showed 50%, 49% and 47% respectively.
Charge testing for an hour repeated the layout of the first experiment. However, when the specialists decided to use the iPhone's full chargers, the G-8 was charged 30% for half an hour, iPhone 8 Plus – by 26%, iPhone X – only by 17%.
So if you want to fully unlock the potential for fast charging of new iPhones, it's better to use third-party chargers or Apple-branded ones with increased power.
