What is the Difference between Micro Usb & Type C?

Over with those days when we used micro USB, and we have now adopted type C cables. However, why we are using it today is because there is something special about it. What are the major differences between micro USB & Type C?

Let's put it in a very naive way. In this article, no technical terms are mentioned. After reading this, if you understand the difference, share it with others. This will also enable them to understand why they are using it.

Difference Between Micro USB & Type-C Cable

1) Plugging

Type C cables can be plugged in from both sides. You didn't realize that. Try it now. On the other hand, if we look at micro USB, it cannot be inserted from both sides. This results in damage to the phone and the charge. You didn't trust me, so now test it out. There are times in our lives when we don't notice these simple things.

2) Data Transfer 

As compared to Micro USB, type C cables transfer data at a much faster rate. Although it has various other versions, such as 2.0, 3.0, and 3.1, 3.1 is considered to be the fastest. 2.0 and 3.0 are viewed as slow because they function the same way as micro USB.

Thus, if you plan to purchase a type-C cable, pick the 3.1 version since it has the fastest data transfer rate. But how? Simply check the description or box.

3) Transferring Media 

Micro USB can only be used for transferring files, data, and charging. With the Type C cable, you can transfer files, videos, play audio, and even charge your phone. 

That is the reason why more and more devices are using type C cables. Some companies have removed the headphone jack because the cable transmits audio easily.

4) Charging Speed

A Type-C cable can charge smartphones up to 100 W. Can you imagine a single cable can charge up to 100 W?

On the other hand, the micro USB cable is limited to 10 W to 15 W of charging capacity, which is very low as compared to the C cable.

5) Universalization of Cable

Type C is a universal cable because you can use it on any device i.e. laptop, smartphone, tablet. That's the core reason to replace convection cable. That's the reason it was built. A micro USB cable can only charge one device, and it can only charge devices with the same specifications.
