These are the Best USB Cables for the Galaxy S22 series in 2022

Samsung has finally revealed its latest lineup of flagship phones — the Galaxy S22, the Galaxy S22 Plus, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. They come in different sizes and suit different audiences. No matter what your budget or expectations are, there’s likely a Galaxy S22 phone that matches these needs. If you plan to buy one of these phones, it’s a wise idea to check out some recommended chargers for the Galaxy S22 series since none of the phones come with a charging brick in the box. They do come with a USB cable, but that is a USB-C to USB-C cable. However, there’s a good chance you either need a different cable, or you need multiple cables. If you need to pick a new cable up for your device, we have compiled a list of the best USB cables for the Galaxy S22 series.

Best Galaxy S22 series USB cables

There are two mainstream options to choose from when it comes to buying a USB cable: USB-A to USB-C and USB-C to USB-C.

USB-A to USB-C cables

When it comes to the speeds of charging and data transfer, USB-A is slower and more limited than USB-C. However, some people still use old PCs with USB-A ports, older chargers, or newer multi-port chargers — so a USB-A to USB-C cable comes. For the most part, though, new gadgets tend to utilize USB-C instead of USB-A, so we’d recommend first figuring out your use-cases.

    Lifetime Warranty

    This cable from supports data transfer at up to 10Gbps and is USB-IF certified. Anker is so confident about its quality, offering a hassle-free lifetime warranty for the product.

    High-Speed Data Transfer

    This 3ft USB cable from Belkin offers high data transfer speeds at up to 10Gbps. However, its charging capabilities are limited to around 15W only.

    Official

    This 1-meter cable is the official one from the company. If you'd rather not resort to third-party cables, then this Samsung product is what you should go for.

    3-Pack

    This package from Hibiker includes three USB-A to USB-C cables. They're 1ft long each and support data transfer at up to 480Mb/s. And thanks to their braided design, they will likely last you for a long time.

    Long

    This pack comes with two 15ft long USB-A to USB-C braided cables. It's perfect for those who move around their rooms a lot while holding their connected devices. They're available in four colors to choose from.

    Short

    This cable is only 6 inches long. It's ideal for minimalists who don't need the extra length. Just like similar products, it supports data transfer at up to 480Mb/s. You can buy it in three different colors.

USB-C to USB-C cables

USB-C to USB-C cables can support higher charging and data transfer speeds. If you don’t need to plug your Galaxy S22 into a USB-A port, you should most definitely buy one of these USB-C to USB-C cables instead. USB-A isn’t as widely prevalent as it once was, at this point.

    Master Of All Trades

    This USB cable offers ultra-fast speeds for both charging and data transfer, at up to 100W and 10Gbps respectively.

    Affordable

    This braided cable is ideal for fast charging, with 100W support. Its data transfer speed is limited to 480Mbps.

    Bang For The Buck

    This quality cable is affordable and supports 100W fast charging and 10Gbps data transfer speeds.

    Official

    This the official USB-C to USB-C cable from Samsung. It is 1 meter long, isn't braided, and comes with a one-year warranty in the US.

    Braided

    This pack from Anker includes two 6ft braided cables. They support up to 60W fast charging and are available in three colors.

    Right Angle

    This braided cable has a right angle on one of its ends. This makes holding your phone in landscape orientation while it's connected more comfortable.

Some of the brands we recommend include Anker and Baseus. And of course, you can’t really go wrong with picking the official cable from Samsung itself. However, there’s no real tangible benefit to picking a Samsung-branded cable other than perhaps reliability, so do explore the options.

    The Samsung Galaxy S22 is the entry flagship for 2022, bringing over top of the line performance and camera capabilities in a form that fits many pockets and budgets.

    The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is the mid flagship for 2022, bringing over top of the line performance, display and camera capabilities in a larger housing for those that need to do more.

    The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is the top flagship for 2022, bringing over top of the line performance, display and camera capabilities alongside S Pen capabilities to deliver an ultra experience for power users.
