I have a Nexus 6 that has Motorola Turbo Charge. Is Motorola Turbo charge a quick charge 2.0 or 3.0 ? :confused:

Does the Nexus 5x also have the same kind of rapid charge called quick charge 2.0 but under a different name ? Or is this 3.0 ? There are so many ways it's being called I'm not sure which is which. :confused:

Moto Turbo is equivalent to 2.0, but it's a proprietary standard, like OnePlus DASH. USB C has its own charging capabilities at 3A max. It has, in my opinion, a little better fast charging.

Does the LG Nexus 5x have an equivalent of quick charge 2.0 (even though it is not formally called that) ? I noticed sometimes the phone says "rapidly charging", other times it says "charging slowly"

Yes, it has a fast charging equivalent, although I'm not sure what QC 2.0 is like as I've never had a compatible phone. In order to get rapid charging, make sure you're using reliable sockets, cords and AC adapters. I use Choetech's USB C to C charger and brick, which is excellent, and a Moko A to C cable, which is not certified and therefore potentially dangerous, but I haven't had any issues. Both deliver rapid charging. I have not used the stock charger, so I can't tell you my experience with it, but the Choetech one is said to be essentially stock.

Invest in a good charger. I've linked Choetech's for your convenience. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B017I...236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=choetech+usb+c
