Disclosure- I’m an iPad owner (which I love), an LG G3 Android cell phone user (which I love), and a Windows PC user (Love Windows 7, Not a Fan Of Windows 8)
A couple of years ago Apple decided to change their charging/data cable to the current lightening cable. At the time people everywhere who owned previous generation Apple products suddenly were going to have many Apple peripherals that would be rendered obsolete once they upgraded to the new connection type. I’m sure that it was a difficult decision but one that Apple designers knew was going to make the connection more stable and secure.
So now being on my third android phone and this isn’t just android products, it’s more the connection type- every android phone I’ve used within a year of the upgrade the charging cable connection becomes loose and I have to wiggle and place the phone just right and often times it beeps back and forth signaling I have a connection to the charger and then not a connection to the charger and then a connection. It is maddening and now that I’m on the third phone using this type of connection I see it is not the phone as much as it is the connection type.
In any case, Apple’s lightening cable is without question a superior form factor.
So there you go from an objective android/apple user. Has anyone else had similar experiences with micro usb charging cables (the charging cable used for android phones)
