Yep, but if you are at a friend home and he don't have that cable to transfert important data fast ( hot swap ) you are screwed. Nowaday, almost eveyr one have a Micro-USB cable at home. Concidering you don't need Itunes or other software to sync or transfer is also a nice addition to that.

Since my S2 uses a mini usb cable a micro cable will not work. And until I got my S2 I never had a mini usb cable.

First : Your S2 use a Micro USB not a mini.
Second : It's pretty odd not to have a Micro USB. Only on my desk I got 2 Cell phone, my mice and MP3 player that use a micro USB. If you have a tablet they most of the time use a micro USB.

See, most of us have device that use Micro USB while ( in my close friend ) only 1 have a Apple product, and he didn't use it anymore since he use his cellphone + Zune HD.

Pretty sure all HTC's (or at least most) also use micro usb..

Add kindle to that too.


Forgot mine at home (I now live in Kiev, originally from Ireland)
But there is a kindle in the office and some of my workmates have Samsung and HTC phones...

3 months without a charger and my battery has never gone flat.

Well, one thing i really hate/dislike about the iPhone is i need to jailbreak in order to Unlocked the damn phone.

Ive had 12+ phones starting from the Treo 650 and ive only had to purchased an Unlock code once for most of them. Never had to do any software hack to unlock.

Which is a great thing about almost any phone except the iPhone.

the last phone i had was for almost three years which was a htc touch pro which used a mini usb and before that a nokia.

micro usb has become more popular as phones are becoming smaller.
