Most phones except for the American Company Apple uses a Micro USB.
Oh, please -- put down the flag.
As an American Apple user, I hate the fact that Apple doesn't use the same charger / data cable as everyone else and that, worse, my iPhone 5 isn't even compatible with my iPhone 3 charger. It's an overpriced, short POS that has a pointless chip in it to prevent third party cables from working properly. It's also not water-resistant (which is great in case you accidentally drop the end of it into a glass of water on your desk). All in all, Apple's new charger has significantly worsened my enjoyment of the phone.
So, I'm all for standardization on something nearly everyone else has agreed is sane. Apple gets no free pass for being American with me.
