I can tell you from firsthand experience that the 3.0 cables are actually 2.0, regardless of what's advertised there.

The heads are big and wires are thick....while that may be attractive to your significant other...it makes for a bad phone cable.

I bought the 3.0 last week and they didn't even support quick charge on my S8+, I had it plugged in to the original A.C. adapter the S8+ comes with and no quick charge.
Then I decided to plug the cable through my apple adapter and it didn't work either, as well as USB plugged into my computer. Such a waste of time and money for me to buy these

Wish I had known in the earlier deal but I guess now they'll go in the car

?? Can you tell us a little more detail about it? I thought 3.0 could transfer file faster than 2.0.
Thanks!

3.0 is faster than 2.0, which is why it's disappointing that these are not as advertised. It's not only this seller that does this though. It's a common problem with USB-C cables being marked as 3.0 when they are not. It seems that sellers think that just because it's USB-C it must be 3.0. I will say though that when I purchased from this seller, they did not have a separate listing for 2.0, so maybe they fixed the problem. Someone will have to report back when they get them.

The easiest way to tell is to look in the A side and look for the extra pins. Look at this picture for the difference:

Note also that 3.0 cables will charge faster than 2.0 if the phone and charger support it.

Absolutely wrong. Charging speed has nothing to do with USB 2.0 Vs 3.0.
