Hi
I bought a cheap Chinese USB charger cable for my N4 and I feel like it doesn't charge as well as the original... (although I use the same AC power)

Could it be ? or is it just me ?

It's the cheap cabling, I have the same issue with cheap 3 metre cabling I bought on eBay.

So you paid less than usual for something and now it's performance is worse than usual. What a shocker.

It's not that I don't buy cheap stuff, it's that I don't expect it to have the same quality.

Can anyone advise which cable to buy, if someone had experience with any particular cable?
It's not that I don't wanna pay, or that I look for cheap one.. but still there are some limits
Just looking for good one. Friend bought few cables, they were so stiff I was afraid they will break if you wiggle them, and micro usb port was also hard to inject into phone..was afraid to break micro usb port..
Was looking on LG web, couldn't find it for buy..

So, looking if someone have experience with some particular cable. TnX

Best cables I have ever used. Very high quality, they feel very much like (dare I say it), Apple cables with the hard shell.

I use the monoprice premium cables too. Had it for a couple months and no breaks yet. And life time warranty. Better than the amazon basic cables.

Ah yes, already checked monoprice, looks like good quality cables, but problem is that they don't ship to my country
And even if they did, I checked country next to mine, price would be ~20$, so..
TnX anyway
