USB 3.0 has no affect on charging in anyway, it's for data only.

I get that with the S5 and note 3 power supply, if you use a non samsung power supply you won't get the same figure, apparently the 5.3V does affect it's current.

Could you run a test using the Samsung S4 and like a HTC OEM cable? I use all the above and am just wondering how much of a difference it makes? I never use the cheap chinese BS cables from Amazon/eBay.

I'd like to hear about this too if possible. I use an old HTC One charger for my phones.

Then, why does it seem to charge faster when plugged into the wall with the USB 3.0 cable than the 2.0 s4 cable?

USB cables are not made equally, different quality and material will give you different results.
