    Is there any benefit with using the stock cable over a normal micro usb cable?

    I was wondering the same thing. It isn't the easiest thing to plug in -- I have to actually pay attention when I do it and I feel like I'm going to break a pin one of these days.

    I talked to a guy at the Samsung store or whatever you call it inside Best Buy and he said the new cable provides a faster charge ( I've checked and it's been true so far it's provided about a 35 to 40% faster charge rate than the standard micro usb) and a faster data exchange rate as well. Haven't jtested that just yet.

    I believe it charges the phone faster similar to how the Lightning cable works for the Iphone 5 and above. Also faster data transfer if you hook it into a USB 3.0 port on your computer.

    The quick charging has to do with the Snapdragon fast charging feature, not the USB 3 cable. If I use the cable from my LG G2, it charges just as fast with micro USB.

    It's only faster when you hook it up to a computer with USB 3.0, otherwise it's the same .
