The USB-C port cable is pretty barebones—just a couple of (mysterious) spring contacts, which is good news for repair.

It's a little more fiddly than last year's One, but certainly not the Apple standard charging port mess.

USB-C is a pretty new addition to the smartphone world, so naturally we took a peek inside.

USB-C's design is compact and reversible, much like Apple's Lightning connector—but cooler. It's a more open standard, and has more features. Let's hope these ports stick around, and can put up with charging cable abuse.
