OnePlus 5T wins charging sprint in latest ad

One of the best features on the OnePlus 5T is Dash Charge it makes other other phones feel painfully slow to charge. The company decided to highlight that in its new add how much will the phone charge in 30 minutes with the screen on?

The 5T phone got from 2% to 57% in that half hour. Which is pretty much in line with our own tests, we got to 65% in the same time, but
with the screen off. How did certain competing flagships stack up? Not that great.

Check out the video, it only takes a minute:

There’s no comparison, really! Watch the #OnePlus5T whip other flagships in a screen-on charging test. https://t.co/vErBcGRqXX pic.twitter.com/OzU8MvaLaZ

Of course, to be fair we need to take into account the battery capacities of the phones involved. The OnePlus 5T does not have the biggest battery here, the Galaxy S8+ and Pixel 2 XL are essentially even here. The 5T does have the fastest charger though. Here’s a table for easy comparison
