    Welcome to Android Central! Does it seem really tight? Or is it just hard to line things up, with such a small plug? Finicky microUSB ports and plugs is one of the main reasons why wireless charging is such a nice option.

    Look at the end of the plug. Look into the port on the phone. You'll see that one side is longer than the other on each. Make sure you aren't trying to put the plug in upside down.

    I agree with wireless charging. (And wireless data transfer and anything else you can do without using the microUSB port. It was about the worst connector the industry could have chosen.)

    If you're talking about the 3.0 charger that comes with the phone then, yes, it is a pain to insert. Seems to charge my S5 very quickly though, so I continue using it. You can use a regular 2.0 charger if too much of a hassle.
