In a testing done by the US-based publication Tom's Guide, OnePlus 5T was found to be the fastest charging phone among the top flagship phones. After all, no one wants to be a "wall-hugger" and keep waiting for their smartphone to fully charge.

Android phones really have it better here, because they all have some sort of fast charging feature out of the box.

iPhones tested with optional 29-watt adapter and USB-C to Lightning cable.The good news is that most of the premium Android phones these days offer some form of quick charging via their USB-C adapters. The technology is claimed to achieve 60 percent or even more battery charge within 30 minutes. However, to enable fast charging on your new iPhone model, you need to pick a separate power adapter that supports USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) and comes with USB-C. The testing was done using both the standard AC plug and the fast-charging adapter to conclude the results. The phones were on, but the screens were turned off. Results were similar to the first test, with the OnePlus 5T leading the pack at 93 percent, the V30 at 86 percent, the iPhone X at 81 percent, the iPhone 8 at 80 percent, and the iPhone 8 Plus at 79 percent.
