Yes, braided phone cables are generally considered better than standard rubber or plastic-coated cables for the following reasons:
Durability: The braided fabric or nylon covering adds extra strength and flexibility to the cable, making it more resistant to bending, twisting, and fraying, ensuring a longer lifespan. As an example, the Anker Premium Double-Braided Nylon USB-C to USB-A Cable tests out to last 12× longer than regular cables.
Tangle-resistant: The braided design reduces tangling, making it easier to handle and store the cable without knots and kinks.
Aesthetics: The woven texture of braided cables gives them a more premium and stylish appearance compared to regular cables.
