was looking into upgrading to S20 but wondering if issue with S8 and S9/note9 has been fix thx for Samsung finally getting PD certification

So back in the day you could get USB C hub and hookup note9/S9 with pass-through charging, but charging speed wasn't enough to keep up with battery drain
playing a game or HDMI out or using GPS split screen with other app while hookup to hub will slowly drain your device even while charging ... eventually it will die.
or say using DEX

question is for people who already bought device S20 tested a USB hub with PD delivery see if there no difference in charging speed while phone is using say SSD or Harddrive or USB camera
and are charge levels while doing this able to keep up with drain speed / actually gaining % in battery rather loosing.

or does the OTG function is what limit all this from charging at respectable level

I did this with the s20u with the charger they provided it took 2 hours to charge no drain issue

If it's taking 2 hours it's probably charging at 5V/0.5A (2.5W) USB charging. So long as you leave it alone and don't use your phone it will charge .... Not doing PD charging (15W) that's a disappointing guess OTG disables anytype of fast charging.
If they would only enable 5V/2.4A normal USB charging I'll be happy under OTG
