To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Not had it for long - only 2 days but from the outset a few key qualities stand out: 1. Fast charging - able to charge my note 10+ at +1%/minute, using the fastest charging power bank - easyacc 4 port - Green Port: DC 5-6V/3A spec, which shows very good wires used for charge conduction. 2. Fastest data transfer - at 10gbp/sec, faster than most wires which is 5gbp/sec (2nd best) - thus ideal for transferring things or supporting UHD monitoring. 3. Sturdy cable - not fully tested due to only have it for 2 days and is not braided however the connection points appear quite think and robust so it at least appears to be quite durable.
Overall, I do believe the name amazon 'basics' is underrated as the item is relative cheap but does many things - as summarized above better than other third party USB-C items - I recommend reading over the item description and trying it out yourself to compare - if the quality is what you expected there is always the (responsibly) return option :).
I bought this cable for charging my Samsung A5 phone and it works well. The cable feels well made and the connectors are sturdy and fit well.
I tested it by charging my phone from my laptop and checked the charge status and current. Charging from a regular USB-C socket charges the phone at the standard rate. Charging from the fast USB-C socket puts the phone into fast charging mode and it charged quickly. Data transfer works fine, I but didn't check the speed. Overall very pleased.
I never got to use,as ordered the wrong cable as I thought I could transfer info from iPhone to samsung with it but you can't but will keep as may be useful in future for transferring samsung to samsung
The cable gets the job done; very simply, it works well. I use the cable to connect my mobile phone to my laptop, and it works great for charging my phone through my laptop as well as transferring files.
