Anyone notice a difference in charging rate between older and newer phones?

I have two different Anker chargers (2nd Gen Astro 6700mAh and Astro E5 16750mAh). I previously had a Samsung Galaxy S3 with a battery that died very quickly. Then I upgraded to an iPhone 6. Both my Anker chargers would use so much of their own power charging the S3 than the iPhone. Am I missing something? Is this normal?

This is a great question. I too would like to know the difference in charging. Newer phones should have better charging capabilities.
