    Not sure if it’s been posted yet but has anyone else noticed a really slow charge on their iPhone X? Figured it might be my anker cable but then I switched to the Apple cable and it’s no better.

    Same here seems quite slow, but it is charging. I wonder how much better it would be with the iPad charger.

    Yes it’s slow, but are you guys still restoring from backup? I thought that may be the issue

    I’m now using a usb-c to lighting cable and my MacBook port to charge. It’s a lot faster this way. But damn, only 5% in 30 mins with the regular cable is pretty bad.

    I have 3 samsung Qi chargers. If you buy one, make sure it says fast charge on it. 2 of mine say fast charge, and they worked perfectly. The third one, does not have that writing on it, and it would not charge.

    I think it’s due to all the network activity during the restore process.

    A fast charger is a luxury item not an essential item.

    Stuck on 78% for the past 30 mins. Let’s see if there’s any patterns.

    Updated to 11.1
    Restored from 11.1 backup
    Using fast charger (anker)
    Rebooted phone

    Same issue.

    Battery seems normal now, but haven’t seen any of the fast charging speeds despite using a 2017 MacBook Pro charger

    Are you serious? The phone itself is a luxuary item and not essential. A thousand dollar phone does not come with fast charging and all the other phones do.

    I mean I am not surprised considering it’s Apple, but your comment is lol worthy.

    I spent the doe for a Lightning to Usb C charging cable from best buy and a Quick charge PowerADD brick from amazon Poweradd Quick Charge 3.0 USB Wall Charger with USB C Output, Foldable Plug for iPhone X / 8 / 8 Plus, iPad, Galaxy S8 / S7, Note 5 / 4, LG, Nexus, HTC and More Charging fine for me.

    Agree. Samsung gives away accessories to sale a phone. Apple doesn't have to make that sacrifice yet.

    Like others said, it’s not the battery or cable.

    It’s us.

    New toy that I’ve been on literally nonstop from 2pm til now, 1130pm. It’s been plugged in all day and still at 75%.

    Also, it’s been indexing and filing a ton of iCloud photos and files as well.

    I don't think it's a sacrifice. I think Samsung actually does the right thing often by customers. I'm sorry, Apple is just doing this for more money.

    Yes. Greedy just like most billion dollar companies. They should of also bundled the AirPods with a X. Since they didn’t and if I want these other items. I have to spend money to get them. The only way they would change. Would be if enough people chose to purchase other devices. I’m not ready to take that step yet. I’m willing to pay a little more to get what I want.
