The debate about the better technology has been a topic between Android and iPhone for quite some time now. One of these technologies is the charging method that these two operating systems are currently using. The question is about which is better: The wireless charging of iPhone or the Quick Charge of Android?

iPhone’s wireless charging

Wireless charging was one of iPhone’s new capabilities that made an impression on its consumers. The idea of charging a smartphone without the annoying wires is just attractive. All you have to do is place the iPhone on top of its dock and the transfer of electric current begins. That is probably one of the reasons Android copy the technology.

Android’s quick charge

Android, on the other hand, started with just a simple charging method. The early versions of Android had to use chargers with only 500 milliamperes to one ampere of charging capacity. With an average charging time of two to three hours, these Android handsets are ready to go.

But as technology upgrades, battery capacities grew in numbers as well. And a small one-ampere charger capacity will take a 3,000mAh battery to get full in four or more hours. Such situation is not ideal for those who cannot afford to wait long in one place just because their phone is dead. So then the quick charge technology was introduced by the chip manufacturing company Qualcomm.

Which Is better?

The real test of which is a better technology happens in an everyday situation. What is a wireless charging good for? When is the time a quick charge technology more useful?

Wireless technology is best when you are charging your phone, and you still want to pick it up now and then.

Picking up and using your phone when Wired charging will likely damage your charging port over time with constant plug and pull, not to mention the accidental pulls.

Another benefit of a wireless charger is the absence of cables and compatibility issues. With wireless charging, you just place your smartphone on top of the static charging pad. But this scenario serves well only when you are outside your home.

What about when you are in a hurry and your smartphone is depleted empty? That is probably the most practical question and the most usual situation: When you are in a scenario where you have a limited time to spare to charge your phone.

And the winner is…

Both charging technologies have their benefits and disadvantages. But when it comes to everyday practicality, it is evident that the quick charge technology is still the one that is more useful. When you value your time a lot, it counts to have something you can use that can last longer.
