The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition debuted the new OnePlus charging standard to reach its 20W Dash charger. So, thanks to Chinese phone makers who produce more patented charging standards, we want to show how they compare to other market standards.
The smartphone industry has several fast charging standards, with its own pros and cons. In short, fast charging is great and convenient for the customer, while proprietary charging standards mean that you can only achieve such speeds using the original cable and adapter.

We've compiled a couple of charts with several quick-charging standards and tie them together. Note that in this comparison, we only compare how fast a device pays for a dead battery in the first half hour. This is most important to assess how much durability you can expect from a device if you only have 30 minutes to charge from or before you have to leave the door.
The raw data that we use is a 30-minute charge for the dead battery, battery power and just the fun, we will also include our battery performance figures for this comparison.
The first diagram is the percentage of recharging after charging for 30 minutes. Of course, this percentage depends on the battery's total capacity and how fast the power can be recharged on the battery.
The Oppo Find X Super VOOC charge is unlimited. It is charged with an impressive 95% battery for only half an hour. In turn, Google Pixel 2XL with its 18W USB-PD charger reached only 35% with the Samsung Galaxy Note9, which is not too far ahead of 37% using its Adaptive Fast Charger.

This table below looks at the recovery of battery capacity, taking into account the percentage and capacity of the phone. Find X is really close to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, as Huawei is the largest (4200 mAh) ball battery. Meanwhile, Note9 and Pixel 2 XL are still the latest.
Lastly, the last chart takes into account the battery performance we gave to these phones when we reviewed them. Simply put, this is our battery life benchmark for the amount of battery the phone can charge for half an hour.
The Mate 20 and Find X next to each other were on the capacity chart, but the strength chart reflects the battery's durability difference between two devices – still very impressive figures from Huawei.

The OnePlus 6T with Dash Charge and vivo Nex S with Quick Charge 3.0 was 30 minutes in fee brackets for neck and neck, where they scored 55% and 50% respectively. This caused a capacity of approximately 2000 mAh per device, with approximately the same endurance ratings, which was exactly 50 hours.
Vivo NEX S with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3
Chinese brands are much better than other industry standards, such as USB-C Power Delivery and Qualcomm Quick charging smartphones, just because the competition between Chinese brands is so fierce. We should be surprised that a fast-charging standard around the world will reach the 20W-25W range.
USB-C Power Delivery is perhaps the most potentially worldwide standard (it costs a lot of laptops), and it's easy to find USB-C PD power supplies, and Apple uses the same standard on its laptops. .
Until then, will we see that other phone makers develop their patented charging standards outside of China?
