The phone will work with any cable. Worst-case the cable's resistance and diameter will reduce the maximum charging current significantly but it always will charge the phone.
It's because the laptop isn't putting out enough current. It must be at least 2a to charge properly.
No USB port has that much current except maybe for highly specialized ones. USB2 is rated on 0.5Amp, USB3 on 0.9
Of course the phone will take significantly longer to charge or may even discharge when used while plugged in.
