Humans and smartphones are like bread and butter- they are inseparable. The smartphones of today are so advanced that we are dependent on them for everything. In fact you don't even have to touch them to access certain features with touchless voice controls making it to smartphones. But with so much technology being packed into smartphones, they last much less than phones of yesteryears which boasted of at least a week's battery life. But with manufacturers now optimizing their software and hardware for better battery life, they have now turned towards faster-charging solutions so you don't have to catch a short nap before your phone is fully charged.

While fast charging is a great solution to a genuine problem, a small issue that arises from it is there are too many standards. As a famous internet meme goes, every manufacturer aims to reduce the multiple standard mess by launching a new standard which eventually adds to this mess.

A look at the infographic from Hometop shows a lot of standards for fast charging which simply add to the confusion. But we are looking beyond the mess today, to find the fastest charging standard in the smartphone market currently available.

USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) aims to reduce all this clutter by providing a single standard that works for all devices from smartphones to laptops that charge via USB-C. What's really good is some of the largest manufacturers like Apple, Google and even Qualcomm are using the USB-PD standard for better uniformity. But the Pixel 2 XL is probably not the best example of USB power delivery as it uses lesser power than the charger can provide. But for future devices, USB-PD seems to be the way forward.

Qualcomm's Quick Charge has been around for a long time and has a much wider reach due to most smartphones today using a processor made by Qualcomm. But Quick Charge 4.0, their latest iteration is slowly beginning to appear on devices and will take some time before we see phones use the full standard. But as a standard, Quick Charge is better supported even by third-party vendors that create a lot of chargers and power banks using the Quick Charge standard.

But what's the use of talking about fast charging if we are not going to talk about the fastest? So what do you feel is the fastest? Obviously, OnePlus Dash Charging right? Well, No. If you look at charging times and charging rate from Hometop's super-cool infographic you can see Huawei's Super Charge marginally beating Dash Charging.

It manages to charge at a rate of 46.57mAh/minute compared to 41.25mAh/minute of OnePlus’ Dash Charge. So we finally have an answer to which is the fastest charging standard currently, it is Huawei's Super Charge found on the Huawei P20, P20 Pro and the Honor 10.

So have a look through the infographic and let us know what you feel about the fastest charging standards and the slowest ones in the list.
