What is Fast Charging?

Fast charging uses the battery charging technology which increases the charging power and hence the battery gets charged faster. Galaxy S6 Edge supports Qualcomm Quick charge 2.0 and Adaptive Fast charging feature of Samsung.

Do not compromise with the quality to make sure that the phone and the feature work properly.
