Keep: USB 3 Micro-B
You may have seen some devices with a strange-looking USB 3 Micro-B connection, but that's certainly not common practice. It is mainly used for newer external hard drives, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was also included.
Keep. This cable is a mix of old and new technologies. The USB 2.0 part looks like the well-known micro USB connection. Flanking is the USB 3.0 or 3.1 share, which reaches ten times the throughput of the old standard.
However, as USB Type-C prematurely launches, the reversibility and slimmer profile can send the USB 3 Micro-B end of life (EOL) cable a little earlier than expected. Some devices may still ship with the connection in the future, so stick to one or two of these cables as a just-in-case cable] Taylor Martin Photo: Taylor Martin / CNET
