What is the specification of the USB port compatible to Galaxy S5?

Last Update date : 2017.04.19


Basically, your Galaxy S5 is compatible with USB 3.0 as it has the USB 3.0 connector.

So, you need to make sure to use exact USB cable type according to each USB version.


Normally, the Galaxy S5 is supplied with USB 2.0 cable.


However, according to consumer's feedback, the USB 3.0 has limited compatibility as there

still not so many devices that supports USB 3.0 in the market. Most mobile devices and wearable

products utilize USB 2.0. The USB 2.0 cable is provided for Galaxy S5 to meet those needs.


If you want to use a USB 3.0 cable, please purchase it at Samsung Brandshop or Samsung

Service centers.


Besides, Please keep in mind that USB 3.0 speeds up data transfers, but it may sometimes

interfere with calls or data when it is in use.
