This is a great cord. I have purchased quite a few cords because they usually fray at the ends, but not this one. I've used it daily for weeks now and it's still just like the day I got it. I like that it comes with a little zipper carry case to put it in when not in use. I fits great in my bag and keeps things organized so I can find the cord when I need it. The cord it is the perfect length because it is 5 feet long and I can plug in and sit at my desk or on my bed and still use my phone. I have a Samsung 8 and this cord works great with it.
