Wireless charging was a nice feature to have on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, especially given the average battery performance of the two devices, but wirelessly charging is a rather slow process. On the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, Samsung is touting speedier wireless charging to take away that disadvantage – the 3,000 mAh batteries on both the phones can charge in 120 minutes through Samsung’s new wireless charger.
Through a USB cable, that duration will come down to 90 minutes, which is as impressive as the charging time on the wireless pad. Furthermore, you still get support for both popular wireless charging standards, Qi and PMA. We don’t know how long the Note 5 and S6 edge+ will last on a single charge, but if the endurance isn’t great, it’s nice to see we will at least have fast charging no matter if we use a USB cable for it or not.
