The USB-C is a problem for some Android users. At least that is how the general perception dictates after we got used to laughing at Apple for the changes that they have made to their phones a while back. Looks like Apple came back to bite us after all. There are a few phone models which are using the Android OS who have undergone the same changes and the people who bought these devices are not exactly satisfied with them. And who could blame them? You’re buying things for the experience, right?
The devices which seem to be having trouble are the Google’s Nexus 5X and 6P as well as the OnePlus 2, located in China. Each of these devices have made the transition from micro-USB to the USB-C and this looks like it is going to be the technology of the future. More devices are expected to make this transition soon, but it is always the first ones who cause most headaches.
The USB-C is quite a deal and promises a lot for the generation to come, but there is only one “problem” about it: you can plug it either way. It is not a top-bottom model which you only need to place in one position, but it serves the comfort of not waking up at night, realizing that you forgot to charge your phone and struggle to find which side is which. It’s nice, comfortable and apparently helps you sleep better.
Your pocket can also feel the difference with the new USB-C. While it is very promising and it will be replaced in the near future, purchasing accessories for this type of plug-in can end up costing you a few extra dollars. Take an USB cable, for instance. If you want a cable for the new C, you are going to have to spend at least $10 on one of these. But if you decide to stick with the older cable version you might end up paying less than a dollar.
Not to worry, though. Financial specialists have come to the conclusion that we might see reasonable prices for the C plug-in by the end of 2016, but that is a far away perspective that could cost us some money, isn’t it.
The USB-C is a problem for some Android users, but it will soon come to pass and we shall be able to bathe in technology’s greatest achievement when it comes to the subject. We just need to give it a little more time.
