    I've heard many things, that the screen needs to be off for quick charging to work

    That it quick charges with screen on but not quite as quick as when it's off

    And that it quick charges regardless

    But of course this implies you're using a quick charger

    So which are true? How does quick charging work if the screens on or when it's off?

    Thanks.

    It charges faster when the device is off. I have been doing it out if habit since my first smartphone.

    Wait do you mean while you're using it? Most of the time I just don't use it while it's charging.

    Does anyone know what the difference in charging time is between charging with the phone turned off and charging with it turned on?

    Consider this ... When I have my S6 ON, but the Screen OFF ... my phone loses about 1% an hour, at most. Seeing that quick-charge will get your roughly 100% in about 1.5 hours (at most), I can't imagine that having the phone off would speed things up in any considerable manner.

    IOW, I would much rather have my phone on while quick charging, be able to use and/or respond to anyone, etc., and wait the extra 5 minutes that it takes to fully charge it vs. not having the phone on at all during charging.

    Off. As mentioned earlier, the difference is fairly minor.

    It still charges fast whether you are using it or the screen is off.
