What is Quick Charge 3.0, and VoltIQ?

Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology is 4x faster than conventional charging and up to 40% quicker than Quick Charge 2.0. It typically charges a compatible device from 0% to 80% in 35 minutes. It achieves this by increasing the voltage from 3.6V to 20V with 200mV increments. This technology is backwards compatible with Quick Charge 2.0 (& Samsung AFC) which is capable of charging a 3500mAh battery from 0% to 60% in 30 minutes.

VoltIQ is suitable for devices not using QC (iPhone, iPad, Raspberry Pi etc.) as it will charge much quicker than conventional charging up to 5V/2.4A in each port simultaneously.

    No Band 28. Not sure if this is a deal breaker though.

      Depends on your use and carrier. A lot of people can do without it.

    • +3 votes

      If you're on Voda / Kogan you won't need B28, as they are one of the few carriers in Aus that actually don't use it.

      Why is it an automatic response these days "No Band 28"? It's actually not as essential as what everyone makes it out to be, even in the country side. It's an extra band out of 2 others (which are supported) that is capable of LTE signals, with it dropping back to 3.5G if it is not available. Most of the time with the contention ratios, you will not likely going to get stupid speeds of more than 50Mbit anyway no matter if Band 28 is available or not.
      I am carrying three phones for work x2 and personal purposes, of which one is a Xiaomi Mi6 with a Note 8 and an iPhone 6S. The Xiaomi without Band 28 is definitely as capable as the other two in grabbing a signal and offering decent speeds and performance in both the City and in the rural areas I've tried (NSW South Coast and Hunter Valley). All three are on Telstra (not MVNO's)..

      • +6 votes

        While you may have not noticed in your experience, band 28 is the main band rolled out by both Telstra and Optus. I am a telco engineer specifically in mobiles and would personally not purchase a phone without it. There are a number of sites that are b28 only, so in these areas your phone would simply not work without it, or fall back to a3G signal which is much more prone to interference and cell shrinkage.

        • +2 votes

          So you are saying you are not confident enough in the 3G signals that it will produce decent speeds that people will use? for 95% of the users out in the field, the difference between a 30Mbit LTE connection (that's on a "good" day) and an 18Mbit HSDPA connection will be very little to no difference in normal web browsing or even video streaming. Interference wise, I'm not aware of interference in the 850 Mhz (Telstra) but I have heard in the 900 band (Optus) from back in the GSM days. Cell Shrinkage will depend on your tower management strategies - my understanding is that all telcos have made commitments to still produce the same levels of service for 3G until way past 2020. Can you confirm if the big two are NOT sticking to this commitment by replacing most cells to B28 LTE?

          Honestly though, by the time you've had enough of this cheapy phone (ie. <3-4 years time average for most people), 5G will be out and a new plethora of phones will be out again by then (the Cells are being deployed now for testing and programs have started in both Telcos to deploy when finalised). Which goes back to my original point - BAND 28 IS NOT ESSENTIAL enough to be "deal breakers" in Ozbargain posts.

          @bchliu: While there has been no 'decommission' of WCDMA, there are many new 4G only sites being built which are usually B28 only, and so in these areas you will have no coverage.

          Interference is huge in both the 850 and 900 bands, with illegal repeaters rife as well as many other impacting factors. Cell shrinkage cannot be avoided by 'tower management strategies' and is inevitable the more traffic a cell picks up as well as the distance away each UE is, which gets much more significant in rural areas.

          While you may not consider it a deal breaker, many others (myself included) certainly do, particularly if you wish to use the phone more for data than voice. The difference between WCDMA and LTE is huge. 18Mbit is a "peak" for WCDMA, but 30Mbit is probably an average speed on most sites with reasonable backhaul, plus the latency benefits with LTE are also significant to user experience.

        It depends, no it is not as critical as it would seem, but if you are in regional areas a good portion of recently added network capability has been in the form of B28 so you can see less dead spots and increased 4G coverage if you're in one of those areas and particularly with Optus. A quick look on OzTowers shows 81% of Optus towers being B28 enabled, with B3 next in at 59%. Telstra's two main 4G frequencies are B28 and B3 with 57% and 54% of towers respectively. B7 is next in with only 7%. Telstra is continuing to further deploy B28. It's easy to check on OzTowers what bands you have in your area on which towers and what upgrades are planned in the near future.

        In practice the difference in experience for many people, particularly in the city, may be minimal, but the fact remains that significant investment has gone and continues to go into B28 and that makes it nice to have if you're a Telstra/Optus customer. Not personally a deal breaker even though I regularly travel through an area where all I get is B28, but it's not ridiculous for it to be considered important by some.

          Also FYI I would consider OzTowers an unreliable source, Telstra has a far greater LTE700 sfootprint than what is published.

        Thank you … Really frustrating that these phones are getting looked over for something that can be inconsequential.

        • +1 vote

          it’s because there are now many cheap phones that have band 28 and 1080p screens …. wasn’t the case 2 years ago when you had few options if you handed a large 1080p screen hence xiaomi was all the craze or you had to pay samsung prices …..

          also band 28 works inside some cbd buildings where other bands don’t as it penetrates walls better.

          would i worry if i was spending $180 … probabaly not as options are limited so grab a xiaomi ….. is it something i expect in a $300 probabaly, in a $400 definitely as there are a lot of choices .

          @garage sale:

          I'm using my XiaoMi Mi5 (no B28) right now in the lift on my conference call with no drops. Plus the lift is in the middle of the building surrounded by multiple layers of steel reinforced concrete.

          Cell signals doesn't really penetrate that well through steel reinforced concrete for buildings in the CBD. That's why most buildings in the CBD deploy repeaters inside the building such that users inside can use their cell phones like there were outdoors. Without these repeaters, people will have to walk to the windows near the side of their buildings to get any signal at all. So B28 will not help if you are inside these buildings without a repeater.

        • +1 vote

          repeater is going into my building in 2018 …. the coverage issue is in the toilets …. multitasking doing poo and online shopping ….. only band 28 seems to get through until the repeater goes in ….

          What works for one person, in one area doesn't work for everybody.

          At my new residence in bayside Melbourne, no coverage in back room on any band …..

    Such a nice deal for the 90W charger, however, I don't need another 5 port USB-A charger.

    Do you think you can get us all a better price for this one with USB-PD?

    Bought a phone from Geekbuying on 5 December, they still haven't shipped it. Website said dispatched in 2-7 business days. Every time I email then they say it is ready to be shipped. Don't expect to receive anything soon…

      I had similar with my MiBox, paid extra for "Australian Shipping" and after almost 3weeks "handling", I emailed them, within an hr got a tracking number that didn't work for another 3d and then 4d later got the tracking notification that it was being delivered that day.

      Geekbuying's handling of tracking is sooooo (poop).
