The point I'm trying to make is these are wonderful cables for a professional environment that should last forever providing there is minimal flexing in its daily use.
It is a bit thick and less pliable than Samsung's, but that's just a bonus for me because the reason I had gone through 2 chargers previously was because my cat likes to chew them. My last one had also got so loose that it would fall right out of my phone if I even looked at it wrong, and I often had to wiggle it to get it to maintain the connection. This one is in there nice and firm, so far I have no complaints. It's longer too, but I like that. I have a Galaxy S5, if it helps.
Here's why: when my cable arrived, it would not work on a USB 3.0 port. I tried two different ports, but it did not matter: my computer would not recognize my portable hard drive. Since the drive worked perfectly with the cable that came with it, I knew the problem was with the Amazon Basics cable, and not the drive or the USB ports on my computer.
Oddly enough, the cable did work in a USB 2.0 port. But if I had wanted to buy a USB 2.0 cable, I would not have ordered this one.
Anyway, I contacted Amazon Customer Service, and, to their credit, they promptly shipped me a new cable, at no cost to me. Big thanks to them for addressing my problem so quickly.
Unfortunately, the replacement cable performed even worse than the first one: it would not work in either a USB 3.0 port or in USB 2.0 port. This buying experience was a complete waste of my time.
I then did what I should have done in the first place: I ordered three Monoprice Select Series USB 3.0 cables and each one of them worked perfectly.
To sum this sad story up: it is not worth your time to buy this product, at least not until Amazon address their quality control issues. Note to Amazon: I still have both cables, and will be happy to ship them back to you for failure analysis.
I tested several other AmazonBasics cables, a 9-foot USB 3 and two 3-foot USB 2 cables, and they were utter garbage, reading just 0.8 and 0.4 Amps. I was expecting this 3-foot USB 3 cable to be just as bad as the others.
I plugged it in to the tester and the tablet, and checked the reading. 1.50 Amps! Hey, this cable is actually decent! I'm pleasantly surprised!

Of course, cables can be used for so much more than just connecting devices. Skipping ropes for gnomes, bridles for tiny horses, speed bumps for toy cars, the list goes on. Why not use one of these cables as a washing line? Or use it to tie up larger cables? Or chew it as a particularly bitter liquorice alternative? It's worth thinking about, anyway. If we expand our expectations of what cables can do then eventually cable reviewers will have more to write about, which is good for everybody.
By the way, don't actually try to chew this cable. It's not good for your teeth and it genuinely tastes disgusting. Not that I'd know, of course.
So I would be somewhat careful with these cables if you're using it for something critical. Yours may work perfectly, but maybe leave it in for a few minutes and listen for a 'device disconnected' sound.
These cables do the job nicely but they are very thick, pretty much as thick as a dual-link DVI cable. Therefore they don't have much flex to them, and would probably break up inside if you tried.
The micro USB3 side is also quite thick, so may not fit in your device if there is a case/cover. As my phone is in one of those silicon gel covers I just stretched out the gel around the port hole so the cable wouldn't slip out so easily. If you don't do this you may find your phone has not charged overnight!
