    I have a Pixel 3 XL and have noticed all my USB C cables do stay connected to my phone. They just don't have much click or snap and fall out. Been using the wireless charging so much I had not noticed untill now. Anyone else having that issue? Thanks.

    I could be misinformed, but I don't think the connector is supposed to be a tight fit, but not overly loose.

    If the cord gets yanked or snagged on something, it is supposed to have a little give to disconnect without damaging the port.

    If you feel like something is wrong, then by all means get on the horn with support.

    Check for lint or debris in the port

    I did find my original cable it was better. Overall does not seem as snappy\clicky as my Pixel XL was. Curious if this is just my phone or how others feel?

    I'll check my Pixel 2xl later to see if I notice a difference

    I am having the same problem with my new Pixel 3 XL. Some cables work, others don't at all, some work but will disconnect far too easily. I was wondering if it is endemic to the phone or if I just have a bad one.

    It's not normal. How is the factory cable?
    Check the port for lint with a toothpick. Lint could prevent the cables from fully seating.

    This is an old thread but my Pixel 3 has gotten really bad with loose connections. I bought a set of wireless earbuds because I could no longer use the wired buds that came with the phone, they would come unplugged almost immediately when I was walking. I can't use Android Auto because it constantly unplugs. I have to be careful charging because I think it's charging but all the while is disconnected.

    I've tried cleaning the port, which helps a little bit, for a little while. Anyone else having this problem, or have any advice for a more thorough cleaning?

    Is it possible for the port to wear out?

    Well, I took a tiny screw driver, from an eyeglass repair kit, and got right down in the port. I got out some gunk and lint and it seems to be working better now. Still a little touchy, but at least usable now.
