In recent times, the development of more power for smartphones seems to be a major focal point. In this article, “high-power” actually refers to devices with large batteries as well as fast charge. Smartphones with large batteries and fast charging easily get rid of the anxiety of users suffering from constant low battery. No matter how good the performance of a mobile phone, no matter how good the camera is, it can only be used if it has power (battery). We all know that many aspects of smartphones are getting better. Most of these better features are power consuming features. The display is getting better, higher refresh rates, and even the latest 5G network is a battery sucker. This increases the requirements of the battery capacity of the phone.
Mobile phone manufacturers try to increase the charging capacity of smartphone batteries to shorten the charging time of mobile phones as much as possible. Currently, the fastest commercial charging power is 65W. In addition, the recent average smartphone battery is 5000 mAh. Our top 3 list takes these (fast charge and battery capacity) into consideration
