I am incredibly unhappy with this waste of money. The description says this is for Samsung Galaxy Note 5s which is what I have and what I needed the charger cables for. When this arrived-quickly, I must admit-the part that goes into the phone is made for an older generation of Samsung-it doesn't even fit the note 5 AT ALL. DO NOT ORDER THIS IF YOU HAVE A SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE FIVE BECAUSE IT WILL NOT WORK. I would have sent it back, but Amazon has the most stupid return policies and it is never ever worth it. My husband has an old Samsung phone from 2011 that he still uses and it charges that, as well as some of our other electronic devices so it wasn't a waste totally..just not at all what I bought it for. I am editing this because I went back to read the description again, and it definitely is clear about what phones it works for, I just didn't take the time to read it all the way. My husband does like the charging cables; and although I am the one who needed it and it doesn't work for me, the charger cables are still being used daily and with no trouble.
I have to purchase these cords every six months because they stop charging. There are not a lot of choices for this type of cord, so I buy what I consider the best out there. I've had my Samsung tablet for 6 years and for the last 2 years have purchased these cords because they are sturdy.
I wish Samsung sold cords and chargers because it's difficult to find replacements that work as well or for as long as the originals.
Bought these for my Samsung Galaxy 12.2 Note Pro tablet. Similar to most replacement cables, both stopped working after the return deadline passed. But these are among the worst. The return deadline was July 27, 2018. It is August 4. The second one died yesterday.
These cables are very stiff. I'm not sure if they will loosen over time but they are more the kind of cable you bend and it stays in that position. You can literally bend them into shapes and they will stay that way. I have other nylon braided cords that are not stiff like these.
The quality seems good aside from the stiffness. I cannot speak on durability since I just received them. Value for the money is ok.
I like that this arrived in a timely manner and the cord appears to be of quality material. My main problem has been that the plug keeps falling out of the phone when I am trying to charge it. It takes next to no tension to pull it away from the phone. It is also very slow at charging. Not exceedingly happy with the product for those reasons and would not purchase again.
After about a week of happily owning these charging cables, I noticed something was off.. I normally leave my phone to charge overnight (bad for the phone, I know) and I would wake up to my phone still having low battery. However strong and durable these seem, they simply do not stay in their ports, and I can't even hold my phone while it's charging without the end falling out.
They're cheap, so I wasn't expecting much, but at least something decent. Would not recommend
My phone was on its last leg when ordering these charging cables. I ordered these cables, hoping to drag out my phone's lifespan. The cables did charge my phone, but my phone was too far gone for them to really do any good.
As for why I'm actually writing this review... My email inbox has been filled with requests that I review the product. It's quite annoying, and also why I took off a few stars.
Beautiful cables but the description should state that it is not compatible with phones that have protective cases. In my case it will not plug into my Galaxy S5 because I use a life proof protective case. The housing is just too large.
