Samsung should’ve used Galaxy AI to figure out how to upgrade S24 charging speeds
Someone inform Samsung that they should update their outdated technology since it’s not 2019 anymore.
For better or worse, the Galaxy S24 is the hottest device right now. If you have even the slightest interest in technology, you have undoubtedly been reading up on the various viewpoints and analyses of Samsung’s new Galaxy S series.
A small piece of knowledge lies between the good, the terrible, and the neutral, and it has been bothering me a lot. Despite reviewing the whole specifications of the S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra, it seems that nobody is particularly concerned about the charging speeds of the three devices.
Enjoy your celebration of the Galaxy AI capabilities and the stunning new 50MP telephoto camera to the fullest; everything is well.with me, but I don’t think this is receiving nearly as much attention as it should, so let’s talk about the dull wired charging speeds for a minute.
Now that we’ve examined the current figures, allow me to take you on a brief tour down memory lane. Surprisingly, Samsung hasn’t altered the wired charging speeds of its Galaxy S series devices since the Note 10 Plus, which replaced the Note series with a pen. In this area, that equates to five years of saturation.

And when you compare the S Plus and entry-level S models, it becomes even worse. The Galaxy S24 Plus, like its Ultra counterpart, the S22 Plus from 2022, has 45W USB-C charging. When you contrast this with its little sibling’s pitiful charging capacity, it’s not nearly as annoying.
By 2024, the little Galaxy S24 will have 25W PD 3.0 Type-C charging, thanks to its sluggish charging speed. It’s embarrassing to say that this statistic hasn’t altered in the four years since the prehistoric Samsung Galaxy S20 ruled the earth—basically, the Mesozoic epoch in the history of smartphones.
That equates to a stagnant period of four to five years. That’s how old I am, dear. We’re talking about 400–500 years in the consumer tech area, or four to five years from now.
I can show you the door right now if you’re come to inform me that we don’t need anything more urgent. You’re either my grandfather in retirement or you have no desire to lead a contemporary life.
How can we even start to break this down? These phones will set you back close to or over a thousand dollars, depending on whether you choose the entry-level Galaxy S24 or the more expensive S24 Ultra. Chinese companies like RedMagic, Vivo, Xiaomi, and OnePlus are able to offer smartphones at lower prices and faster charging times, with specifications comparable to those of the S24 series. Why is Samsung unable to?
At launch, the OnePlus 12 offered 50W wireless and 100W cable charging. While its Pro edition boasts 120W wired and 50W wireless charging, the Xiaomi 14 boasts 90W wired and 50W wireless charging. Both 50W wireless and 100W cable charging are supported by the Vivo X100 Pro. Do I need to continue?
Heck, there are Android phones that were released roughly four years ago the S20 in the same amount of time, but with a faster charge. For example, the RedMagic 5G originally included 55W rapid wired charging.
Samsung’s situation appears dire, and I haven’t even discussed wireless charging yet.
Referring back to that entertaining little table I mentioned earlier, every Samsung Galaxy S24 model has universal 15W Qi wireless charging. How about wireless charging, as wired charging hasn’t been improved in the last four to five years?
I regret to inform you that, as of late 2019, nothing new has been released since the Galaxy S10. This was prior to Samsung unifying the Note and S series under one brand.
Here’s what Samsung has to say about the charging speeds of the Galaxy S24 series, so get ready for the joke of the century:
This occurred during a discussion about Qi2 not being included in the S24 series. We just learned about Qi2’s potential rejection from the S24 lineup was due to interference with the S Pen from a random accessory tester. For that, we didn’t receive a suitable response, and I suppose we won’t receive one for this one either.
Although Samsung claims to have been concentrating on “extremely fast wireless charging,” this does not appear to be the case. It is absurd and definitely does not correspond with that assertion to be getting the same old 15W Qi wireless charging on its most expensive family of phones for the previous five years.
What exactly is fast wireless charging done right? anything at all from one of the phones As I have stated. Even though we know that some premium smartphones can support wireless charging at speeds of up to 100W, I’d be content with something in the range of 50W to 80W.
Ultimately, it is a well-known fact that Samsung has room for improvement. Their resources and finances allow them to perform better. However, they decide against improving the charging parameters since they believe they are performing admirably as is.
Samsung, you’re making a fool of yourself. Please take action regarding this, for the sake of everything sacred.
