    Home sick with the flu I've been using my G7 quite a bit today. After it got to 64% I got the charging brick and hooked it up to charge. It said the charge time would be 1 hour and 19minutes to 100%.

    I also have an Anker Qi certified wireless charger. This is what's confusing. When I unplugged the phone from its charging brick and put it on the wireless charger It displayed the same 1 hour 19 minutes charge through the same app, Fullcharge. The g7 isn't supposed to have fast charging through a wireless charger but my phone charged as fast wireless as with the USB3 brick. How can that be?

    Might need a USB 3.0+ cable as well.. Just because a supply can push x-amount of pwr doesn't mean the wires can properly carry them

    1 hour and 19 minute to go from 64% to 100% doesn't sound like fast charging. To top off that 36% on a fast charger should be about 20 ~ 25 minutes.

    With the charging brick and cable that came with the phone at 8:58pm the phone was at 85%. At 9:35 it was 100%.

    I know that with fast charging the last 10% or so to reach full charges more slowly. Although that still seems a little long to me. I can plug in my phone to my car charger during my evening commute starting around 60% and 40 minutes later it's fully charged.
