So I would be somewhat careful with these cables if you're using it for something critical. Yours may work perfectly, but maybe leave it in for a few minutes and listen for a 'device disconnected' sound.
Firstly, the cable is very thick and stiff, so I can't plug it into the socket behind my bed and use the phone plugged in because the cable just won't co-operate. It's plenty long enough, but I can't hold the phone in a comfortable position because the cable is fighting back. It won't go anywhere it doesn't want to.
Secondly, the end that plugs to the phone is such a GIANT chunk. If you have a great big goose neck phone holder which has a nicely perfectly placed opening to allow you to plug your phone in.... FORGET about it. It's absolutely enormous, exactly the same size as the end that covers the 3 times thicker USB A side.
Other than that, it seems to work perfectly, just be aware, that compared to the cable that came with your weird ass USB 2/3 combo connector enabled phone (which thankfully usb c now takes care of), it's not going to co-operate with you due to the heavy and stiff nature of it. It will however allow you to place your phone off of the floor while charging, you just may have to pick your angles and watch for trinkets on the mantle.
Upon being plugged in, i found it performs really well. transfer speeds went from 25mb per sec to 85mb. (read and write). I was really impressed with the cable quality and its ability to transfer data much quicker than the tiny one supplied with the unit I was using initially.
Would recommend this as a good purchase.
I would recommend these to anyone with more than one external drive, and may need to move or swap them now and again.
Edit - upon comparing this to the original short cable that came with my device and the longer replacement cable I bought afterwards, I can see the fault - this amazon basics cable connecter is just too short, the metal usb plug just isn't long enough and is why the latch pins don't help because they are not able to reach the latch pin holes inside a usb socket. As others seem to find it ok, I suspect it depends on which batch of third party cables that amazon rebadged - clearly the batch I got don't fit USB standards.
