Buy this Benson-approved, USB-IF certified Type-C to C cable with 10Gbps transfer support and 100W max power

Buying a USB Type-C cable is a lot more complicated than buying microUSB cables used to be. There are various subtle differences in the spec, and a bad cable can even damage your devices. This has led Google engineer Benson Leung to review Type-C accessories in order to draw attention to the ones you shouldn't buy.

That'll get you a nice 5" display and decent specs for a reasonable price.

WhatsApp lets you pin 3 chats to the top

Those of us who use WhatsApp a lot know that the conversation list can get pretty crowded very fast with groups, plenty of family and friends, and random individual chats.
