Often, you might have to forgo the original box, or perhaps a few of the normal accessories are missing which lowers the asking price.
I’ve been testing a number of phones to find out how nicely they play with chargers and cables from other companies.
Proprietary charging technologies are increasingly common and, as such, most smartphones charge fastest when using the charger and cables in the box.
This isn’t a complete surprise, as OnePlus acknowledges that you need to use the company’s Fast Charge Type-C Cable to achieve the fastest speeds.
What’s more troubling is that changing out the cable doesn’t slow charging down the speeds, it stops fast charging completely.
By comparison, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro slows down when using non-Huawei cables, but still achieves fast charging speeds.
