    My wife has the 2013 Moto X and I recently got a Note 4. The Note comes with a fast charger and the phone has an option to enable fast charging. My wife plugged her Moto X into the fast charger and it charged a lot faster than using her regular cable. Now she always wants to use my cable haha. Somehow the Moto X is taking advantage of the fast charge adapter so hopefully this info helps some people out.

    Look at the Output rating on her charger. Now look at the line on your charger. The A or mA number on yours is probably a lot higher. That's the only difference - the charger can supply more current, and her phone is capable of drawing more current from a charger that can supply it. You can buy her a Note 4 charger for $10 at Samsung 5V 2A Travel Charger - Android Chargers & Cables

    (The "fast charge" in the Moto Turbo is something inside the phone and is different - it does a really fast charge up to 75%, then drops to normal rate - and will probably [I haven't tried it, but my 4 years toward an EE degree says so] work with any charger capable of supplying enough current.)

    @ yeppie:
    As I said, that's inside the phone. The Turbo comes with a charger capable of supplying the current needed to do the fast charge, but that charger should work with any other phone - and not do the Moto Turbo fast charge thing. The reason Kobe's wife's Moto charges faster is because the Note 4 charger can supply 2 Amps, more than most. (A 2 Amp charge on a 2300mA battery is just under a normal charge, it's not a fast charge. It's faster than the charger supplied with the phone can do, though.)

    What Rukbat said. I used to plug my Moto X into my Nexus 7 charger once in a while to get more juice slightly faster. The Note 4 charger puts out about 2.1 A (IIRC) vs. the 1.15 A of the Moto X charger.
