    Default Did I bend my Micro USB Port on Galaxy Nexus

    Just got a galaxy nexus last week. I was skiing yesterday and using MyTracks to record my day on the slopes.

    Well, since the battery life isn't so great, I used a Duracell portable charger in the afternoon to give me some juice. I figured it would be OK, but when I later pulled the phone out of my jacket pocket, the Duracell microusb end that goes into the phone was bent at a 90 degree angle towards the back of the phone. The MicroUSB cable actually broke and i had to pull out the remainder of the MicroUSB from the phone with my teeth since I couldn't grab it with my fingers.

    I didn't pay enough attention earlier to know if I'm right or wrong, but it seems like if I look at the phone from the side, the USB cable is not parallel to the body any longer, it angles downwards a bit. Also SEEMS like the USB is slightly looser / has more jostle, but I might just be overanalyzing.

    Anyone care to take a side profile shot of their phone with the USB plugged in so I can do a compare? I only have one camera here but I will try to shoot it later to show how it looks. I'm nervous I bent out the port a bit.

    Same thing happened to mine. It's not like you could have done anything i mean its the usb port its their fault they sold you a ****ty product. I've had about enough of this piece of ****. Gonna go down to verizon and raise **** till they give me either a new phone or fix it for free. Or maybe I'll join Team iPhone.

    They will offer you the Rezound as a replacement.
    I voided my warranty.

    oh my. If the connection is bent or dropped while the cable is in and the usb port is damaged its a bad design? Ya, and cars are badly designed when you hit a telephone pole and they get a dent.

    To the OP, my phone dropped and hit on the connected cable. The cable has an issue but not the phone. With the phone connected to a computer it will drop and gain the connection as I move the phone. When connected to a good cable that does not happen. It may be the cable. That is weaker than the port in the phone.
