Everyone loves the idea of charging their smartphone from 0% to 100% in a very short period of time; say 30 minutes. This is why this write-up is about Samsung phones with fast charging.
For some time now, 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 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 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 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.
Having said all these, below are Samsung phones with at least 25 watts charging speed or more.
There are numerous people out there that believe fast charging might damage your battery. Well, let me be clear, the manufacturers always put in place technologies and sensors to make sure that doesn’t happen.
They will slow down the charging speed at some point to allow the battery to cool down. It also allows the device to know when the battery is completely charged and stops the inflow of power to the battery even though you haven’t unplugged it.
Samsung called the above process adaptive fast charging. Different manufacturers have different names for it.
Samsung S22 Plus and S22 Ultra are among the few Samsung Phones with fast charging speed of 45 watts. I am expecting to see all the 2023 flagship phones to have a faster charging speed.
