Consequence of using chargers with different output of Ampere

    Hi there

    I have both a Samsung and Sony charger, which both provide an output of 5 V.

    But they have a different output of Ampere:

    Sony 850 mA
    Samsung 700 mA

    So I kind of know that I can use both. So my question is whether the Sony charger will be faster at charging my current phone (a Samsung)?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    The phone determines the amount of amperage for its charging.
    So the charger's ability of amperage could be bigger than the phone's needing of amperage but should not less.

    So the Sony charger won't charge your phone faster.
