Socoder -> Hardware and Technology -> Lightning Issues

Although I really like my iPhone, I'm really tired of lightning connector issues. First of all, even a new plug and socket wiggle a bit, meaning unstable connection, then when there is a littls dust caught in there, you have no connection until you rake about with a tooth pick for half an hour. They consistantly block other manufacturers cables from working and force you to buy their own which fall apart. I think I'll look into what Samsung is offering for my next phone.

Samsung&Co are using MicroUSB, which IMO is much more bloody awkward.

Precisely why my main tablet is my lil 7inch Kindle Fire. The old iPad4 is just way too fussy and now takes forever to charge!

What the hell are you two doing with your iPhings??!

I admit it could probably do with a bung, or something. But mine's been *touch wood* ok so far.

My phone is running ok, usually goes a couple of days without charging, but imho lightning is a stupid connector. It isn't deep enough to be secure (for how thin it is) and Apples only reason for using it is apparently so they can squeeze an extra 0.2 amps for charging.

Nothing out of the ordinary, honest **eyes dart around the room** honest....

But I'll sooner replace my kindle fire once it dies with another one, £40 = the cost of 3 (1m) apple lightning cables.
