The Best Fast-Charging Smartphones For Every Budget


This is the international top 10 list. Click here to check out the US version.

If you're here, there's probably no smartphone in the world that can get you thru the day with a single charge. That's too bad, but at least it means that you do take full advantage of your phone and the money you paid.

So, if no phone can handle your power needs, then the best thing that you can do is to find one that at least can take a quick charge as fast as possible.

That shouldn't be a problem because luckily, nowadays, tons of devices can give you an extra couple of hours of use if only you can find a little over a couple of minutes to charge them.

As a side note, just in case you didn't know, for security purposes, phones usually don't accept fast charges when they're over 80% of battery capacity. They also charge at different speeds, also depending on the battery capacity.

Anyways, what do we have here?

The best phones around are on the top 10 list, but if you can't find any that suits your budget, there are another seven lists for you to check. And if you don't really need a 65w/h (or more) charging speed, then you can consider other phones from that list that may not be as fast, but are best suited for your needs.

These are frequently updated lists because obviously, prices also change regularly.

Once in a while, manufacturers do prioritize battery life. So, you can also check the links at the end for a similar list with the phones that can give you the most juice out of their batteries. Maybe there's something there that's also useful to you.

If you have a thing for fast wireless charging, then also do check those links.

Tips: Prices marked with ! are from renewed/refurbished/carrier-locked phones. You can also find links to Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, and Walmart (and updated prices) in any comparison article.
