Best quick-charging Android smartphones money can buy

Charging your phone every single night after returning from work, school or a stroll around town in order to be able to start again the next morning without losing track of your Facebook friends, favorite Twitter feeds or Pinterests might well be the most annoying modern-day chore.

Android battery

It’s not only boring as heck, but you have to actually remember to do it, not to mention keeping all sorts of cables on hand and hugging walls for hours on end. Of course, some devices last longer than others, and you can always use power banks on the go whenever you need a quick, no-plug-in-necessary pick-me-up.

And let’s not forget about wireless charging, which is slowly taking off, although it’s not exactly wireless if the dock must be physically connected to an energy supply for the whole thing to function.

Quick Charge 2.0

Finally, while it doesn’t solve the underlying problem, i.e. the constant demand for more juice, fast-charging technology at least reduces the time wasted waiting. Like many mobile inventions, this is bound to become truly useful down the line, when you’ll be able to fill up the tank in mere minutes.

But there are already numerous Android phones endowed with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 capabilities or similar functionality, and we give you today the cream of that crop:

LG G4 – starting at $371 on Amazon

LG G4 battery

Will the G5 make this old-timer look its age at last in a little over a week, with a vastly refined design, considerably beefier processor under the hood, more RAM, a better camera, and smoother UI? You can bet the farm, the house, everything you own on that.

It’ll even invigorate its battery 38 percent faster than the G4, courtesy of Snapdragon 820’s Quick Charge 3.0 support. At the same time, it’ll probably cost twice as much, and you have to wonder if it’s worth the premium. After all, last year’s leather-clad bad boy can still lift its cell capacity from 0 to 60 percent in half an hour. And mind you, we’re talking a relatively large 3,000 mAh battery.

HTC One A9 – $386 and up

htc-one-a9

If you ever wondered how an Android-running iPhone from a legit OEM might look, this somewhat disappointing upper mid-ranger is your guy. It’s slightly overpriced, we won’t argue otherwise, but it’s compatible with both Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0 standards. The bad news? You need to pay extra for one of those super-fast charger accessories.

The worse news? The A9 packs a tiny 2,150 mAh battery, so no matter how quickly you can liven it up, it’ll still leave you hanging when you might need it most. Say, during a business meeting. So yeah, better not risk it and instead buy the…

ZTE Axon Pro – $400

zte-axon-pro

A costlier ZTE recommended over an affordable HTC? What exactly is the Axon Pro’s secret? Well, it’s got several strong suits, all made public and marketed quite aggressively on US shores of late. Number one, a beautiful 5.5-inch Quad HD display. 2, a somewhat gimmicky but proficient 13 + 2 MP dual rear-facing camera. 3, more RAM than you could ever need on a mobile device (4 gigs). 4, a respectable 3,000 mAh battery. Last but not least, standard fast-charging times: 30 minutes to go from 0 to 60. In a nutshell, plenty of bang for 400 bucks.

Nexus 6P – $450 through Google Store

Nexus 6P

This stock Android Marshmallow-based phablet is sure an odd duck. For one thing, it comes with a reversible USB Type-C port that isn’t however capable of 3.1 data transmission and charging speeds. Granted, a slew of other phones released in the latter stages of 2015 half-heartedly adopted the new USB technology like that, but only the N6P also lacks Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 support.

Fret not, as it’s gifted with a proprietary equivalent nonetheless, though Google and Huawei refuse to make any pompous claims regarding stamina-inducing times. Even if it takes, say, an hour to reach 50 percent volume, this is a must-buy for Android purists, what with a 3,450 mAh battery, Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB RAM, and 5.7-inch 2K screen on deck.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – $588 and up

Galaxy Note 5

Since Sammy was basically forced to fit a homebrewed processor inside its latest wave of high-enders, their rapid charging technology is different from Qualcomm’s too, promising a full tank in a measly 120 minutes, even wirelessly beefed up.

A full 3,000 mAh tank, that is, rated at up to 22 hours of continuous 3G talk time. Add an S Pen into the equation, all-time record low price, and we see no reason why you should hold off for the Galaxy S7. Well, aside from microSD storage expansion maybe.

Motorola Droid Turbo 2 – $624 full retail price at Verizon

Droid Turbo 2

As the name suggests, this turbo-charging beast uses its own personal implementation of standard QC technology, squeezing no less than 13 hours of average usage from a massive 3,760 mAh battery after only 15 minutes spent hugging a wall. Such a shame the “shatterproof” 5.4-incher isn’t available on America’s number two, three or four operators. Guess that’s one of the reasons Big Red preserves its market domination.

LG V10 – $620 and up

LG V10

50 percent in 40 minutes? That’s not so impressive. It’s definitely not record-breaking or trend-setting, but overall, the V10 is. Because it’s also military-approved for shock resistance, including contact with hard surfaces, equipped with a secondary notification display that can be both an energy and life saver, plus two front-facing cameras for… double the selfies?

Clearly, you’re dealing with a one-of-a-kind product, and even if it’s not a rapid-charging champion, it gets that job done too in addition to a bunch of other strenuous jobs.

BlackBerry Priv – $698

blackberry-priv

Would this particular writer ever consider buying the Priv? No chance. Not at $700, and possibly, not at a penny over $600 either. But that’s because I’m personally not obsessed with security, and my physical QWERTY keyboard love affair ended half a decade ago.

If you’re into those sorts of things though, you know how hard it is to find them elsewhere, especially combined with open-source Android, Google apps, a beautiful curved Quad HD AMOLED panel, and large 3,410 mAh battery capable of providing 60 percent juice after 30 minutes “wasted” hooked up to a power supply.

LG V10

LG’s dynamite smartphone from 2015, the #LGV10 is now selling on eBay for just $239.95. Although the phone wasn’t the hit that the company expected, it has a special place in our hearts as it was the first device to introduce a secondary ticker display. This combined by the fact that it was a truly rugged device made it one of my favorite smartphones of 2015. This device is up for grabs on the cheap now, so we couldn’t be more excited.

The handset comes with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel dual front cameras, Android 5.1 Lollipop (upgradable to Marshmallow), and a 3,000 mAh battery.

LG V10

The T-Mobile version of the #LGV10 is now available on eBay for just $199.99. We previously saw a Verizon + unlocked version of the handset, but it’s good to see that there’s something meant exclusively for T-Mobile customers. As you probably know, the LG V10 is one of the most attractive flagships to come out of the company’s sheds last year. It was largely overshadowed due to the presence of other offerings, but nothing can take the flagship status away from the V10.

The handset packs a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel Duo Camera on the front, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 chipset, Android 5.1 Lollipop (upgradable to Marshmallow), and a 3,000 mAh battery.

[Deal] Verizon + unlocked LG V10 for $254.99

LG V10

The #Verizon branded #LGV10 is now selling on eBay for just $254.99. The device is compatible with both Verizon and GSM carriers. The smartphone comes with a very exciting hardware specs sheet even though it’s a late 2015 flagship. This was considered to be one of the best LG handsets available in the market until last year, and some would still be of that opinion given the hardware it’s packing underneath.

The LG V10 is equipped with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel dual cameras on the front, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 chipset, Android 5.1 Lollipop (upgradable to Marshmallow), and a 3,000 mAh battery.

[Deal] 64GB unlocked LG V10 for $400.99

LG V10

Let’s face it. The #LGV10 from last year was one of the most attractive devices to have released. The only problem for LG was the timing of the release. Bringing it out that late in the year basically meant that it had to compete with the Apple iPhones for attention in the mobile industry. However, one year down the line and a successor later, the LG V10 still remains a relevant flagship for many. This appealing handset can now be purchased from eBay for just $400.99.

The smartphone comes with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel duo-camera on the front, the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, Android 5.1 Lollipop (upgradable to Marshmallow), and a  3,000 mAh battery. The phone also comes with a secondary ticker display on top, allowing you to view quick notifications or arrange quick launch icons as you please. Plus the device is also MIL-STD-810G certified for durability and shock resistance.

[Deal] 64GB T-Mobile LG V10 for $224.99

LG V10

The T-Mobile branded #LGV10 can now be yours for a miserly $224.99. The seller is offering the 64GB variant of the flagship here, which means you’re getting the top-end model for the price. Given the kind of features that it’s packing, the LG V10 for just under $225 seems like a steal, really. However, there’s one major caveat. The handset is only compatible with T-Mobile’s networks in the U.S.

The handset is sporting a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel dual-camera setup on the front, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC, Android 5.1 Lollipop (upgradable to Marshmallow and Nougat), and a 3,000 mAh battery. The key highlight of the LG V10 is the fact that it comes with a secondary ticker display on top which can be used to read notifications and even set custom icons.

LG V10

The LG V10 can now be yours for just $209.99 courtesy of a deal over at eBay. This is the T-Mobile version of the handset, which means you won’t be able to use the device with just any GSM carrier. To make the deal relatively sweeter for the customers, the retailer is offering the 64GB version of the handset here, so you won’t be hustling for more storage as soon as you get the device.

T-Mobile LG V10 receiving a minor security patch

LG V10

Own a #LGV10 from T-Mobile? Well, an update should soon be hitting your device. It’s not known if this is one of the monthly security patches from Google or just a routine patch to some issue we weren’t aware of. Either way, it’s not a major update, although it weighs in at a hefty 459MB. So make sure you remain on WiFi before proceeding with the download and install of the update.

Users aren’t mentioning any new changes with the update, although the software version has changed to H90120j. It is likely that this is the July security patch (or maybe August). T-Mobile and carriers, in general, have been quite slow in terms of rolling out the monthly security patch. Most of them are now sending out the July patch while we’re almost halfway into August already.

LG V10 users on T-Mobile, are you seeing an update yet? If yes, make sure you let us know in the comments below.

LG to release the V10 successor sometime in September: Reports

LG V10

The #LGV10 was one of my favorite smartphones from 2015, mainly due to the kind of hardware that the company crammed into the device. All this without making it look ridiculous. Word from the grapevine suggests that the Korean manufacturer is prepping the release of a successor sooner than expected. A Korean news outlet is reporting that the company will unveil the device by early September, instead of October as previously rumored.

This makes sense as it would give LG ample time to settle in the market following the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It seems like LG wants to maneuver the arrival of this flagship sometime between the Galaxy Note 7 and the iPhone 7 release. We’re not sure if this strategy will work for LG, but there really is no other choice for the company, especially given that the LG G5 hasn’t fared well so far.

We think LG missed a trick by keeping the V10 limited to just a handful of markets. But it is hoped that the company won’t repeat the same mistakes with the successor. Would you like to see an LG V10 successor soon?
