USB Type-C/ Thunderbolt – is a sort of a jack of all trades because of its accessibility. Unlike other connectors, USB Type-C can be plugged in regardless of position. It can also connect devices across platforms, meaning smartphones, tablets, laptops, and PCs.
They can transmit both video and audio but also data and power, which is why you will often see it used not just on TVs and PCs, but on phones and different devices as well. Is it better than HDMI and DisplayPort? For the convenience, yes, as it’s more compatible on a wider range of devices, especially newer devices, but HDMI and DisplayPort are still the best choice for display and sound quality on modern day devices since they can process higher video and sound quality than USB Type-C.
