    Never thought I'd be asking for buying advice on a product so basic. How hard can it be to make these things well?

    I have gone through about 5 of these things in two years or so for my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I notice that with all of them, they become progressively looser on the micro USB side when connecting to the phone. And the longer USB cables I have bought, even when they do remain seated securely, have just stopped working.

    I know it's the cables and not the phone b/c I have the same issue with my Lenovo tablet.

    Any buying advice for USB>Micro USB cables that are well made and don't crap out?

    Silverstone makes a reversible a to reversible b. They're not the longest lasting cables I've ever owned, but I can safely say they don't loose their click. I abuse cables in general so the wear and tear I see as normal so I just replace them every 6 months or so.
