Clocking in at around 6,427 seconds, That’s 107 minutes or 1.7 hours.
Looking at battery life the same way you look at your day to day, that’s not bad, considering you have battery life for what Samsung claims is about 2 days with moderate use and even longer when you decide to turn on the “battery savings option”. (Good job Samsung)
It sure beats the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X/10 out at their 135 minute total, which equates to a little more than two hours. That’s almost double the time it takes the Note 8 to hit that sweet sweet triple digit number we all wish would never deplete. It’s still reputable, the Note uses Samsung’s Adaptive Charging and it works great, but something else has it beat.
We’ve seen a lot of advancements in fast charging technology over the past few years. Motorola has their own 30W Turbo Charging technology, Google’s using the USB compliant Type C Power Delivery (3A) on their devices, OnePlus has Dash Charging, while Qualcomm has been touting Quick Charge 4.0 as the next big evolution of fast charging.
But let’s take a step back and look at what you get with Samsung’s Adaptive fast charging straight from the box; Adaptive Fast Charging doesn’t work while you’re actually using the device. That’s to say if the screen is on, a notification will tell you that your phone is “Fast Charging” but what it doesn’t tell you is that fast charging doesn’t kick in until the screen goes off. It’s a small limitation though, one that doesn’t decrease the time by too much time, but still, there is something faster that it supports. Enter Quick Charge 3.0.
Battery life is often times the biggest deciding factor when people are trying to figure out if they should upgrade to a new device or not. That’s where we come in to fix the hiccup. TOPGREENER’S Quick Charger 3.0 USB Outlet. As some of you may know, Quick Charge 3.0 is Qualcomm’s Halo Child and is stated to charge your smart phones battery up to 75% in only half an hour. That’s completely nuts…4x faster nuts.
The fact that you can get that much more of a charge through another company’s platform is insane and just shows that maybe our competitors have some catching up to do. The Galaxy Note 8 is a great phone indeed and definitely in the ring for the 2017 phone of the year. It just becomes an even greater phone with the TU1152QCAC3….whew. What a name right?
To me, it seems like the Note 8 is the perfect phone. I personally have one and could not be happier with the purchase, the very over-the-top price tag of $1000 was a little steep, but well worth the phone and camera on its own. The first time I used the camera it paid for itself. So if you’re looking into purchasing the Note 8 please do yourself a favor and get something compatible that helps you quick charge your phone, it would definitely make it the perfect partner. Pick up the Quick Charge 3.0 Outlet for your home, or a Quick Charge 3.0 Adapter to travel and have around in your luggage.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Pick up the Galaxy Note 8 when the price drops a little, $1000 is still worth the phones camera alone, but think about how much better you will feel if you bought this same phone for less? You can find it here on eBay for around $799 but Christmas is around the corner and I’m sure Samsung will drop the price for the holidays.
TOPGREENER QC 3.0 USB Outlet: Pick this up if you are getting a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the near future or already have one, or if you have anything with a Type-C USB its worth the install in your home. You can find it here on Amazon for around $36.99
