The iPhone X and iPhone 8 are Apple's first smartphones to officially support fast charging with USB-C. However, a new study by Tom's Guide shows that the iPhone X and iPhone 8 are lagging behind the flagship Android devices in terms of fast charging capacity …

The test was made using the fast charge included accessories with OnePlus 5T, LG V30, Google Pixel 2 and Galaxy Note 8. For the iPhone X and iPhone, Tom's Guide used the wall adapter 29 watts from Apple and a USB-C to Lightning cable. In terms of out-of-the-box support, Android flagships already have a clear advantage. We badyzed the differences between iPhone chargers earlier this year.
First, the devices were tested in 30 minutes of charging time. The OnePlus 5T opened the way, reaching 59 percent in half an hour. In second place was the LG V30 at 53 percent. The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone X completed the top five with 50 percent, 49 percent and 47 percent, respectively.
From there, Tom's Guide tested the fast charge for one hour. The results were similar to the first test, with the OnePlus 5T leading the package by 93 percent, the V30 by 86 percent, the iPhone X by 81 percent, the iPhone 8 by 80 percent and the iPhone 8 Plus by 79 percent.  By comparison, when charging with the USB accessories included in the iPhone case, the iPhone 8 hooked 30 percent of the juice in 30 minutes and 58 percent in an hour. The iPhone 8 Plus was blocked by 26 percent and 55 percent in 30 minutes and 60 minutes, respectively. The iPhone X was considerably slower with 17 percent in 30 minutes and 37 percent in an hour.
The most notable thing here is that the latest iPhones work much slower than the flagship Android phones, although you have to spend more to get the fast charging capabilities first. While the difference may be marginal for some people, it shows the work that Apple has to do to compete with other Android devices in fast charging.
Are you a fan of fast USB-C charging with the iPhone 8 and iPhone? X? Or do you stay with traditional charging or wireless charging? Let us know in the comments.
