    Default Samsung note 3 loose charging port?

    Hey guys, im on my second SGN3 as i took my first one back because i bealived the charging port was faulty, im wondering if anyone els has a loose port, or is it just the way the usb 3.0 is made? The first note 3 i had as worse than the one i have now but this one has some play side to side and a little up and down, what do you guys think?

    If your using the supplied USB cable it should have a tight snug fit with any new device. 3rd party or other device USB cables may not fit as snug.

    Not sure how correct this is as I do not own a Note 3 but can say I baby my Note 2 and there is some slight, very slight play. It is not snug to the point of zero movement.

    Primarily up and down.

    I'm having trouble with my 2 week old note 3 as well...Micro usb charging port is [I]very[I] loose and will intermittently stop/resume charging. 2.0 usb connectors stay charging, but the port itself remains feeling very loose.
    Should I send it back to mfr??
    Thanks...

    have the same problem with my note 3. its quite loose and charging is a bit tricky as the connection loosens up if i move the phone a little.

    The note 3 charging port is loose and it's a simple fix when Samsung put together the phones something most have been off in the manufacturing process I found that if you tighten the screws that hold the note together it makes the body more snug and resolves the issue. So here is how open the back of the note 3 get a 00 Phillips head screwdriver and tighten all the screws a half a turn and ta dah no more charging issues.

    if you evaluate the little copper connecters on the actual cable itself, you will notice that one of the is out of alignment with the rest. Carefully and gently bend it to align with the rest and that will fix it. It worked for me. The cable is still a little loose but it remains charging. no more errors saying, "to charge faster use the original charger and cable!"

    THANK YOU!

    That worked like a charm. I had rubber bands holding the cable in a weird angle.
