Launched in 2022, OnePlus 10T was touted as the ‘flagship killer’ by some but failed to make a greater impact largely because of the missing alert slider and an uninspiring camera unit, which was seen by many as OnePlus giving up its identity for a more mainstream appeal. What it did have was a massive 160W charging brick that provided up to 150W of wired charging, making it one of the fastest-charging smartphones on the market. The OnePlus 10T takes just about 20 minutes to fully power up. Need to leave in a hurry? In just 3 minutes the 160W charger can boost the smartphone from 1% to 15%.

Vivo V27 Pro
The newly launched Vivo V27 Pro continues the V series’ tradition of being one of the best camera phones out there, but its fast charging capability is something that doesn’t get enough praise. The smartphone comes with a 66W charger in the box that can boost the battery up to 50% in just 19 minutes and 100% in a little over 30 minutes. The 4,600mAh battery can provide an entire day’s worth of backup with absolute ease. Powering the smartphone is MediaTek’s latest SoC, Dimensity 8200.
Redmi Note 12 Pro+
Redmi Note 12 Pro+ is one of the few phones in its price category that offer 120W super fast charging. The smartphone can be fully charged in just 19 minutes, something that even most flagships cannot boast about. The 4,980mAh battery delivers a versatile performance, offering a day’s worth of power backup with ease. While 120W charging may already be ridiculous, Redmi plans on pushing the boundary even further with plans of a 300W charger in the works. The brand recently showed off this hyper charging ability on a modified Redmi Note 12 Pro. It took the charger a mere 5 minutes to completely replenish the 4,100mAh battery.
The Oppo Reno8 comes equipped with a 4,500mAh battery that can be fully charged in just 20 minutes with its 80W charger.

Asus ROG Phone 5s
Designed for heavy gaming, the Asus ROG Phone 5s does not compromise on its charging capabilities. The smartphone comes with not one but two charging ports, one for regular use and another side-mounted port for when you’re gaming. There are two 3,000 mAh inside the ROG Phone 5s, ensuring that power backup is not an issue while gaming.
