Do we all agree that micro usb's completely sucks? They ALWAYS get loose and break easily. And some of them charge your phone fucking slow so you better pay a little extra do get a good brand one.
I am glad usb type c is the future.
I wish external hard drives came with their superior cable.
I charge my 3 years old phone, 2 year old e-book and some other things with one non-brand cheap micro usb cable that I had for even longer. Nothing is loose and nothing broke. So no, we don't all agree and it may be that you're just having a bad case of retard hands.
Cheap micro USB is cheaply made. Buy good brands and you'll be fine.
The same thing is going to happen with USB-C once they get to be more popular: chink companies are going to make cheap cables and they're going to suck.
This is some "my dad works at nintendo" shit and I don't have any proof but my old man recently told me the first line of type C will actually be pretty shitty and some devices being developed with it right now won't be compatible with future versions released a short while later, you've been warned
At the moment you can ONLY buy them from chink companies as only chink manufacturers make devices that use it, ie. Xiaomi 4c (which I'm posting from now). The cables are much better quality than any micro USB I've used.
This is a good thing. In engineering something is going to break if you apply too much force. Would you rather have a micro-USB receptacle to break and be forced to send back your device for repair or would you rather have the cable break and go buy another $5 cable?
My Nexus 5X has type c and it's good. It aiways fits the socket and is more robust than micro.
Wish I had bought a Z170 board, Z97 doesn't have type C sockets.
micro usb is just way of making the average consumer buy more shit to get the same fucking result
>having to have over 5 different connectors/adapters because nobody can and ever will settle on a standard
The cables are 10 dollars and only change every 5 years. Also, they come with the products that need them. The current model of power adapters is much better than the previous every-brand-has-its-own-adapter system.
>Getting rid of the backwards compatability we've had for however many years now just because "muh flipping cables" meme.
You people are why MicroSD cards, removable batteries, and soon to be headphone jacks, are things of the past.
I use a GS5 with 128Gb MicroSD, 8500mAh brick battery, and USB 3.0.
I will do everything in my power to make this meme lasts me until hell freezes over, because you and I both know none of these things will be available in the phones of the future.
>go get bluetooth gadgets
