OnePlus is already telling the world that its new OnePlus 3T is better than other smartphones, including the Google Pixel XL. In a new OnePlus 3T vs Google Pixel XL battery charging test, the company shows how its Dash Charger can charge the phone much faster.
Both the OnePlus 3T and the Google Pixel XL use USB Type-C for charging and data transfer. However, OnePlus bundles the smartphone with a proprietary Dash Charge adaptor, which can provide a days-battery life with just half an hour of charge.
OnePlus 3T vs Google Pixel XL: Battery Charge Test
To prove the point, OnePlus had a very real life test conducted comparing the new OnePlus 3T and the Pixel XL. Of course, this coming from the company itself, could be tampered with. But this is not the first time OnePlus has done this as the OnePlus 3 too came with the Dash Charge feature.
The OnePlus 3T has a 3,400 mAh battery, whereas the Google Pixel XL has a 3,450 mAh battery. Both smartphones use the latest Snapdragon 821 processor, which is supposed to be very efficient. In the test, OnePlus places both devices in Airplane mode and starts charging them from one percent battery life.
In the beginning of the test, the difference between the two smartphones is not a lot. The OnePlus 3T was at 56 percent charge after 30 minutes, while the Pixel XL reached 49 percent. However, one hour later, the 3T was leading by a margin as per Android Authority. One hour into the test, the OnePlus 3T had reached 92 percent, whereas the Pixel XL only managed to hit 70 percent.
Should The OnePlus Battery Test Be Trusted
At the end of the test, the OnePlus 3T was the winner. It finished a full charge in 90 minutes, while the Google Pixel XL took 2 hours to do that. Now, the problem is, can the consumer trust this test. Because, according to a test conducted by PhoneArena, the Nexus 6P from Google took 89 minutes to complete a full charge. And the Nexus 6P has the same 3,450 mAh battery that is found on the Pixel XL. Watch the full OnePlus 3T vs Google Pixel XL battery charge test video below.
