Micro USB Cable failure,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung 0.7A home/Wall Power (AC) Adapter with Detachable Micro USB Data Cable (Generic Packaging) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The is indeed an OEM Samsung Cable and wall charger. But, I now know why it's so cheap. The one I recieved was used and it's clear to me why the original user returned it, the micro USB connector will not consistantly stay connected to the phone. I mean the physical plug seems to make a clean smooth fit but the pins in the connector don't stay connected to the point that the phone does not recognize it's plugged in. My first experience was after leaving it plugged in for a few hours and returning to discover a dead phone. I know it's not the phone as the original cable that came with my Samsung Infuse 4G still works fine, I just needed an extra cable/charger for use while at work. This cable failed me as it clearly failed the original owner. The price was so low, it didn't seem reasonible to even bother the seller, cause I surely am not going to pay to ship it back.

For what it's worth, the USB cable that came with my phone (Samsung Epic) is of the same quality - that is, very poor. It only worked for a few weeks before failing. The charger is still going though.

Yes, the Samsung OEM cable that came with my Galaxy S II also has the same defect. I have found the "Samsung Travel charger - Detachable with Micro USB CableSamsung SPH-M330, SCH-R100, SGH-T939, and SPH-M320" charger to work much better.

Amazon Customer says:
I'd just like to note here: OEM doesn't mean used. It stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. This means you're buying it from the "factory" instead of the retail front, similar to wholesale items. In a sense, it's LESS used.
