Everyone loves the idea of charging their smartphone from 0% to 100% in a very short period of time; say 30 minutes. For some time, the Note 10 Plus, S20 Ultra, and S10 Lite are the only Samsung phone with 45 watts of fast charging, or what some will call super-fast charging.
But times are changing and so are companies, this is why 2 of the 3 phones in the S22 family come with 45 Watts fast charging.
Most Samsung phones out there come with 15 watts and 25 Watts fast charging. At 25 watts maximum charging speed, even the M62 with 7000 mAh battery was completely filled up from 0% in less than 2 hours but at 15 watts, it would have taken around 3 hours which isn’t great at all.
So, as far as I am concerned, any Samsung phone with less than 25 watts of charging speed isn’t worthy of being called a smartphone with fast charging technology.
When compared to the likes of 65 Watts charging from Vivo, Realme, or the 120 Watts charging speed from Xiaomi, you understand why I think Samsung needs to do better not only with wire charging but also on Samsung phones that support wireless charging.

What is Fast Charging and How Does it Work?
It is a charging technology that recharges your battery faster than it would normally take by sending more power into it. This happens by either increasing the voltage or the current; different manufacturers adopt different methods to do this.
It is worth mentioning that even if a smartphone supports fast charging but you are not using a fast charger, it is going to charge at the normal charging speed.
The case is the same if you are charging a phone that doesn’t support fast charging with a fast charger.
Also, you need a charger that supports the maximum charging speed supported by the device to fully utilize it.
What I am saying is that, let’s take, for example, you are charging the Note 10 Plus that supports 45 watts of fast charging with a 25 watts fast charger, it will charge at the maximum speed of 25 watts (the maximum charging speed of the charger).
One last thing to take into consideration is the battery capacity of the device. Even if two phones charge at the same maximum speed but one has 4000 mAh and the other has 6000 mAh.
Obviously, the 4000 mAh battery will be filled up before the 6000 mAh battery phone. But it will also be depleted first.
Top 5 Samsung Phones with Fast Charging
1.) Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
With 45 watts of fast charging support, you can easily fill up Samsung S22 Ultra’s 5000 mAh battery faster. The device also supports 15 watts of wireless charging and 4.5 watts of reverse wireless charging.
Samsung S22 Ultra being charged with a 45 watts Samsung charger will be filled up (0% to 100%) in about an hour. That is pretty fast.
S22 Ultra is also energy efficient. So, even though you are using the device on a 120Hz refresh rate and gaming, you will get about a day of usage out of it.
Average users on the other hand will be able to get about 2 days of usage from this device with just a single charge.
The same can be said for Samsung S22 Plus as they are powered by the same processor, it also supports 45 watts of charging but has a little bit smaller battery, no stylus pen, and a less capable camera system when compared to the S22 Ultra.
2.) Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
Samsung S21 Ultra is Samsung’s 2021 flagship and it supports 25 watts of fast charging. It is packed with a 5000 mAh battery that takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to be fully charged from 0%.
It also supports 15 watts of wireless charging and 4.5 watts of reverse wireless charging. This means you will always have the option to use a wireless charging pad to fill up your device when you are not with a wired charger.
Thanks to its processing power, it is energy efficient and can last an average user about 2 days of usage on a single charge.
3.) Samsung Galaxy A73 5G
Samsung A73 5G supports 25 watts of fast charging and you can fully charge its 5000 mAh battery from 0% to 100% in about 1 hour and 30 minutes. It is advised to use Samsung’s 25 watts charger.
