OnePlus 3T Dash Charge vs. Google Pixel XL USB-C Power Delivery: Which Smartphone Charges Faster? [Video]

Close

Just like the OnePlus 3, the OnePlus 3T has a Dash Charge feature, and the smartphone maker seems to be pulling out all the stops to show the world how awesome it is.

To do that, it has launched a video that puts the OnePlus 3T's Dash Charge and the Google Pixel XL's USB-C Power Delivery against each other in a race to see which can go from 0 to 100 percent first.

The Battery Test: Dash Charge vs. USB-C Power Delivery

With Dash Charge on board, the OnePlus 3T can get about 60 percent worth of juice in 30 minutes. On the other hand, the Pixel XL's standard USB-C Power Delivery can typically deliver power of up to approximately 50 percent in the same duration.

Those results are more or less reflected in the video below, where the OnePlus 3T gets 56 percent and the Pixel XL 49 percent at the 30-minute mark. At the 1-hour point, the former leads the competition at 92 percent, and the latter trails behind at 71 percent.

Going from 0 to 100 percent, the OnePlus 3T needed 1 hour and 30 minutes, while the Pixel XL had to take 2 hours to fully charge up.

Of course, those don't necessarily translate to the real world exactly, as there are a lot of factors involved when it comes to smartphones' battery performance.

"Actual charge time may vary depending on phone configuration, settings, usage while charging and power source," OnePlus says at the start of the clip as a disclaimer.

Without further ado, here's the video:

OnePlus 3T, Google Pixel XL Specs

It should be pointed out that the OnePlus 3T has a slightly smaller 3,400 mAh battery than the 3,450 mAh cell the Pixel XL has.

That means the Phone by Google is technically at a bit of a disadvantage here, but the difference is pretty much negligible.

It's also worth pointing out that the Pixel XL doesn't use Qualcomm's Quick Charge feature despite housing a Snapdragon 821 because it relies on USB-C Power Delivery, as mentioned earlier.

The Bottom Line

Recently launched, the OnePlus 3T has been whipping up the Android community since it rolled out, and now the company behind the new flagship killer wants to stir the pot a bit more by one upping Google's Pixel XL — from the look of things, at least.

At any rate, it's good news to see that practically any smartphone nowadays has some sort of quick-charging technology to offer, including Samsung's Adaptive fast charging.
