Is 25W fast charging sufficient for Samsung Galaxy smartphones?

Unlike rivals, Samsung brings upgrades to its new flagship smartphones generation by generation. The recently launched Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 can’t be defined as “revolutionary,” while they are just minor upgraded versions of their predecessors.

While the South Korean tech giant is bringing minor upgrades (at least) with each generation of phones, the charging speed is an exception here. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 feature the same 25W charging support, exactly the same as the last year’s Fold 3 and Flip 3.

Samsung calls 15W and 25W charging speeds – “Fast charging,” which doesn’t make sense if we have a look at the recently launched smartphones by non-Samsung OEMs. Well, Samsung claims that its 25W charging adapter has the ability to 50% charge Galaxy phones in 30 minutes.

At the same time, there are some smartphones that are claimed to have the ability to charge 100% in less than 30 minutes, which is beyond Samsung’s limits. Phones from Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi are not available in North America, but trio of OEMs is offering massive fast charging tech.

Well, the OnePlus 10 Pro is available in the United States with 65W fast charging support, the OnePlus 10T is beyond that with 125W charging speeds stateside. It’s worth mentioning that the same model is offering up to 150W fast charging in the markets outside the US.

65W fast charger fully charges the OnePlus 10 pro in under 40 minutes, while the 125W adapter takes half of this time for the 10T. So how Samsung can assume its “25W charging tech” a “fast charging” while there are a lot of phones offering massive support up to 125W?

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Z Fold 4 starts at $1,799 in the United States, it sounds like a failure in charging speeds due to its tiny 25W support even after having top-grade and latest hardware installations. OnePlus focuses on the Indian and Chinese markets, but what will be in the future when Chinese makers start gaining popularity in the US?

Similar to Apple, we don’t, Samsung and Google will bring faster-charging speeds on paper like the Chinese vendors. Meanwhile, it’s worth mentioning that the Galaxy Note 10+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra offer up to 45W fast charging support, which sounds a bit satisfactory.
