I've trusted Anker as a brand for quite some time now and these cords are nothing less than the standard that I have become used to from them. The braiding is thick and feels premium, the plug has a nice *snap* feel when plugging into my Samsung Galaxy Note8, and they charge just as fast as my factory Samsung cord that came with my phone.

I originally stumbled on these (USB Type C Cable, Anker PowerLine+ USB C to USB 3.0 cable (6ft), High Durability, for Samsung Galaxy Note 8) and on that page, I was redirected to a "new model" which I promptly clicked on because typically when there is a "new" model, it is improved in some way. After purchasing that new model and receiving it, I found out that it is USB 2.0 to USB C instead of the previous USB 3.0 to USB C, which made a big difference for the application I was intending to use it for. Now, some of this is Amazon user stupidity because I should have read the description of the product as soon as I clicked the link to the new and improved model, but if it is not exactly the same product but improved, it should not be labeled as such. This is not a "new" model, this is a "different" model. I was originally going to return them and purchase the Anker cords I originally found, but these cords are just too premium and feel so good that I cancelled the return and have relegated them to a few spare USB C charging cords around my house, which you can never truly have enough of. If that doesn't speak to the quality of this product, then I don't know what does, because Anker convinced me to keep a product I did not even want or need with said quality.
