    I barely use it as its a comical length. Its beautiful but way too short to be practical. Please lengthen it for the next model and if possible offer a longer cable for purchase now. Im Sure a large number of us would reluctantly buy it. Can a mod add a poll to this? Should the one have a longer cable yes or no.

    They should've included a longer cable with the OnePlus in the first place. Seeing how cheap cables are (ebay, ali express, amazon, monoprice) it would have probably added a max of $1 more to the overall cost. Instead of $349 you got $350.

    To be honest i've never used the original cable. I have so many cables that i just used the original to test the charging speed

    I don't think we can add a poll. We can edit them but we can't create one out of the blue

    OK well I'm sure most of us will agree the next one needs to be longer. I get the length.. It works well connecting to a laptop for example. But I have to put my phone on the floor to charge and I can't use it at all while charging.

    o_Othat's sooo not what she said. Anyway I hope @Carl @David S. Is taking note. I know you guys are busy people but this is a simple and easy thing to fix. Just add a few inches ;)

    I don't normally bother about wanting extra long cables, etc, because I end up winding them up, but it's true that the oneplus could do with a little bit longer, when I charge mine I have to leave it on the floor... won't even reach to a chair!

    I bought a 1.2m flat cable with magnet on ebay for 2 bucks. Problem solved! Joking aside, the supplied cable with the One is of sufficient length to me, so I don't think a longer one is necessary consider their packaging, a longer cable is impossible!

    I don't use mine as its too short. I have plenty of extra cables laying around so I just use other ones that are a reasonable length.

    I think all phones should come with a USB cable at 1.5 meters length. If you want to buy a new cable, the AmazonBasics 6ft cable is really good

    And another vote for a longer cable. If the power outlet is on the wall directly behind the desk where the phone will sit, then the cable is long enough, but for most situations it is indeed too short.

    i agree but its not only OPO doing it but all phone makers. all of them should atleast make the cable 6 ft long and not a 3ft.
