It's 2018 and USB Type-C is still a mess
By Thom Holwerda on 2018-06-11 23:03:48

USB Type-C was billed as the solution for all our future cable needs, unifying power and data delivery with display and audio connectivity, and ushering in an age of the one-size-fits-all cable. Unfortunately for those already invested in the USB Type-C ecosystem, which is anyone who has bought a flagship phone in the past couple of years, the standard has probably failed to live up to the promises.

Other than my Nintendo Switch, my back-up phone (a Galaxy S8), and my old Nexus 6P in storage somewhere, I don't use USB-C at all, so I've been able to avoid all of its problems so far. It seems like a real mess.

Someone has to be the guinea pig but it won't be me. Until usb-c `just works`, count me out. A usb cable just isn't something you should have to research or wrestle with in my opinion.
