If it's been upgraded to 2.5A then that explains the super fast charging speed.

Just got my S5

And nah, the wall adapter is still 2A...at least the one that came with mine is:


I think the fast charging is because of "Quick Charge 2.0" from Qualcomm's 801 chip.

My wife got her shimmery white phone yesterday that came with a white cord and charger and I was hoping my black on would come with a black cord and charger, no such luck, looks like they are all white.

Can I use old micro USB charger/cable from S3 to charge S5?

Yup, you sure can. The USB3 port is backward-compatible so any of the old USB2 microUSB cables will work just fine.

the 2.0 cables seem to charge extraordinarily slow for me. The 3.0 cable from the same 2A source seems real fast.

Not sure if it is just the first impressions or an indicator that you should probably plan to use the 3.0 cables from now on...
