I need a cable/adapter for a samsung galaxy s5 that I can use to connect to a projector.  The projector has hdmi ports and vga.  I would like to use VGA to see if it works but I can use hdmi if that is easier and better.  The plug on the back of the phone is a longer connector that I am used to seeing.  Is it micro usb 3.0?  It is not as small as some micro usb I have seen.  Maybe I am not understanding what I have seen.

the S5 has a microusb on it, and some other proprietary port next to it.  The charger uses both ports, but you CAN still use microUSB cable in the correct shaped port

from what I understand, the galaxy S5's port is a microUSB 3.0 connector, which has backward compatibility with 2.0.

Wikipedia USB 3.0 Micro-B plug

I was mistaken about this being "proprietary."
