    The Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 7.1 are more affected. The 7 Plus had no issues in normal use, but some users who abused the port a bit had issues.

    I'm using the 8.1 since launch and it is all good so far. No issues in my case 🙂

    I thought I had this issue. But I cleaned the Jack and the connector which attaches to the charging port and I was good to go.
    Unfortunately, 6.1, 7 plus are delicate darlings, ultra sensitive. So just don't abuse your charging port and it will last for a good time.

    I charge my phone once in 3 days as I am a very light user, but still my charging port on Nokia 7 plus connects-disconnects during charging.

    It does not. Also if it is there then too it maybe on just few unlucky phones. Charging port issue can occur on any phone.Just take care of your phone and don't treat its port roughly.

    Charging port of Nokia 8.1 is not working properly. I have this problem from about 1 year, means around 3-4 months after purchasing. Initially I thought that, it is getting loose because of my mistake and reconnect the charger. Still it persists then I thought that, might be the charging cable has the little problem. But one day I cross checked it and found that phone's charging port has the issue. Then I searched on Google about it and found many people facing the same problem. But by the time I cross checked, my warranty period has ended. How can Nokia phone's charging port comes with poor build quality?

    I have bought 2 Nokia 8.1 (one for my son and the other for my wife). Both devices have charging port problem within the warranty period. We took them back to Nokia support and both have been repaired. I don't know if the problem will happen again.

    I learnt that Nokia has extended the warranty of the USB port (maybe due to this problem). You may wish to have a try taking it back to Nokia support.

    (Summary: I've owned the 7 Plus and two 8.1 which all had charging problems)

    I had the charging problem with my Nokia 7 Plus so I bought the 8.1 which after around 4 months also had the charging problem. I took it back to where I bought it and the shop gave me a replacement. It was charging fine until April where the problems started again. It's now almost June and it doesn't charge at all. As much as I love Nokia I just can't buy another one of their phones so in a few days I'm upgrading to the Samsung S20. It's sad since in the past Nokia built a reputation of strong and reliable phones but I've owned 3 Nokia Android phones and they've all had charging problems. And yes I did try cleaning them all out and I always treat my phones with care.

  • Hi guys, I'm using a Nokia 7 Plus and the charging port issue has just gotten worse, I've had my phone for just over two years now and I love every bit of it but lately, I can't charge without adjusting the cable every couple of minutes until fully charged because it disconnects or charges very slow 😔. Anyone know where I can get the charging port fixed in South Africa??? I'm afraid it might stop charging completely one of these days 😕

    I am have bought Nokia 8.1 phone 1.5 years back. Thinking that it is reputated company. I have used phone for 1 year with no issue. After that my phone was having charging issue. I have given it for 2 times for changing of the port. But still I have the same issue till now. I don't know why Nokia are giving such a low quality port. I am not happy with Nokia Product . Do not buy Nokia Product😒

  • Yes, Had the port issue. Service centre guys did a temporary fix while it was in warranty period. Had to get it replaced later on.
