There is no point repeating the same thing on both sides.

I get these results as well using the same charger but different cables. It's weird that some S5s only came with a USB 2.0 cable. All the S5s I've purchased came with a USB 3.0 cable.

I don't have the wall charger with me but as far as I can see I'm not getting any difference in charging current...

That's not a reliable app for measuring current draw. Use battery monitor widget.

This is nonsense. Either your cable or charger are inadequate.

Thumbs up
OK, I'm from Europe and my S5 came with USB 2.0. At first I thought, WTF NO FAIR, but then I noticed that it couldn't be better, My phone charges from almost 0% to 100% in around 2 hours. Let's not forget that the battery is large at 2800mah and charging it fully for 2 hours is just amazing! Stop worrying, love your phone

With original plug and cable 2.0 supplied with s4, charges as fast as usb cable 3.0 that came with s5, at 1800 ma. No other usb 2.0 cables purchased come anywhere close.
PS. The only other micro usb 2.0 cable that I have also charges at 1800 ma is blackberry rapid charger (undetachable usb cable from the plugn, 6 feet long, 5v and 1.8amp output)

Spot on. Unfortunately some people on here don't understand that the quality and gauge of cables make the world of difference irrespective of the usb version. Some usb2 cables will perform better than usb3 cables and vice versa, completely depends on the gauge and quality of the cable itself, not the actual usb connection type.

Agree completely......On my previous S3 when I used a chinese flimsy cable and charger (in cases where I didn't have my charger with me and had to use someone else's) it took hours to charge, sometimes overnight it didn't even reach 100%. But thicker cables did the job.....as did the original Samsung cable and charger....
