    What is type c charging port, why the need to change it? This seems like an Apple trick to sell chargers.

    The micro USB is being replaced by the type-C connector. This is not exclusive to Samsung. Other OEMs have made the switch on their high-end flagships. If anything, it's Samsung playing catch-up.

    I believe they allow faster transfers between your phone and a PC as well. If anything, you would only need to get additional cables, not chargers. I would rather get a new cable for my car charger than use the bulky adapter, which may put extra weight around the phone port.

    Its a new standard that solves many ergonomic and technical limitations of micro USB (remember mini USB.. still get one every now and then)

    Capable of more power throughput, much faster data speeds, end to end cables, meaning you will start seeing cables with USB -C on both ends, in addition the cable can be put in either direction, there is no top and bottom.

    I've never hesitated to hash Apple for things but type c is an advancement, not a priority thing. Micro USB has been around for how long now? Time to move forward with technology! And like others mentioned, there are adapters to continue using what you already have.

    If using USB 3.x, IIRC.

    Thanks everyone. Was just curious why the change, I haven't been keeping up with that part, I wireless charge so I pay attention to that more.

    The connector to the phone feels much better/sturdier than micro USB.

    Since N7 doesn't support quick charge 3.0, is there any benefits to USB-C other than faster file transfer rates?

    It is also reversible so you don't have to worry about sticking it in the wrong way

    The answer is below....

    Yup, that's huge. I always pick up a USB the wrong way, and then have to twist. Sometimes I figure that I am that unlucky to pick it up that way, and I flip it around... guess what, then its backwards. I hate plugging in things in the dark.

    If using USB 3.x, IIRC.
    Apparently USB 3 is going to be on the snapdragon version, but not the other one... however, that discussion seems open to debate at this moment.

    I have reversible microusb cables so I probably won't see much benefit in USB C. It's still nice that they're moving forward. Gonna have to start buying more cables though, or at least some adapters

    More secure fit that is symmetrical.

    It can support faster charging more safely. There's no speed difference in QC 3.0 and QC 2.0; the difference is efficiency. USB C gives faster data, it can carry HD display signal, HF sound signals and most importantly one type of connection that works with everything - the end of proprietary ports.

    Samsung is putting the most advanced tech it can into this device. That's USB Type C at the moment. It's not an Apple thing to do, because Apple wouldn't use an industry standard like usb. They'd put a proprietary port and call it thunder or lightning. They also wouldn't include an adapter. If Samsung was worried about selling $3 cables on Amazon, they probably wouldn't include an adapter.

    It's a more advanced port.

    Furthermore, Samsung had to do it eventually, as nearly everyone else is moving towards it.

    Thank you all for the info regarding USB-C. I feel better now knowing that it comes with the N7.

    To be clear, Qualcomm asserts there is a small charging speed difference, if that is what you mean. Maybe I interpreted our post wrong ..

    So does the phone have USB 3.1? On the Samsung site it says it does for the USA model but people have said it doesn't.

    Oh, awesome. I hadn't seen that image before. I was going off of their previous statements "Quick Charge 3.0 is engineered to refuel devices up to four times faster than conventional charging. It is designed to charge twice as fast as Quick Charge 1.0 and to be 38 percent more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0. Now consumers can spend even less time charging, and can grab and go more quickly". 13% increase in speed isn't bad

    Now if only the Note 7 had QC 3.0 :-)

    The weird part is that on the press release on Qualcomm's page on the launch of the Note7, there was this at the bottom.
    "Galaxy Note7 features Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0. The version varies by markets."

    I know, it's odd. Then on another section of the Qualcomm site, it lists the Note 7 as 2.0. On the A/C podcast, the guys were talking about 2.0, so that seems likely at this point. Who knows .. :-/

    There is no difference in speed from QC 2 to QC 3. Atleast on my G5. Verified with a DROK USB monitoring device.
