    How long a phone takes to charge depends on four things.
    1. How big the battery is (and in the 1520, it is huge).
    2. How depleted the battery is
    3. Is the phone being used during charging
    4. How much current the charger puts out (all chargers are not equal).

    Given that there are four variables to deal with, the answer to your question is wide open.

    Relative to how large the battery is, I think the 1520 charges pretty damn fast to be honest. I was afraid it would take ages. 1 week into 1520.3 ownership and battery charge time is something I very much approve of.

    My 920 takes around 2 hrs to charge as well, given the size of 1520's battery that is pretty damn fast and yes, its normal.

    As with all devices now days it's the last 10% that takes the longest.

    let's see. 3400 mA battery divided by 1300 mA charger equals 2.6 hours give or take. its not magic, just math

    And with a lesser power source (there are many lesser chargers out there), it will take even longer.

    Hes asking if its normal for his phone to charge in 2 - 3 hours. Your answer doesn't help at all.

    OT: My phone only takes couple hours to charge as well. It is extremely quick and even under use it'll still charge. My S4 wouldn't charge while I was using it, I maybe got 1% every 15 minutes. Nokia did right with this phone.

    You're mistaken - my answer shows how many variables there are in answering the question, and the reason why answering the question with yes or no is not only inadequate, but misleading. There are too many variables to answer the question that simply. My answer may not be helpful to you, if you choose not to take the time to think about what it says, but that does not mean it isn't helpful. My answer is absolutely correct, though.

    less than 2hours of charging from 20% to 100%. i think that's normal.

    i use the included wall AC charger. haven't tried wireless charging (will take longer).

    i guess that's normal
