reliability issues of micro USB port and cable

If I am not mistaken the micro USB port was first introduced by Samsung on their Android phones and later by others for charging the  phone and exchange of data . It is now adopted by many cameras as well .

However it is my experience this is not a reliable design . A large percentage  of cables made by third parties and even the original cable  failed to connect reliably  to my camera or Samsung smartphone from time to time ,so that they either dont charge or that your laptop may not detect the devices  .Sometimes juggling the cable works but sometimes dont .I also suspect this design is not tolerant of  wear and tear .

I dont have this issues with the ports or cables with iPhones .

Any similiar experiences ?
