Option 2 (Recommended, my own fix):

Requirement:

*USB-C Magnetic Charging Cable

*Masking Tape


Instructions:

  1. Buy yourself a USB-C magnetic charging cable (Get one with data transfer).
  2. Cut a small piece of masking tape and wrap it around the magnetic male port. (Why masking tape? Electrical tapes leave stick residue overtime, masking tape wont)
  3. Put the the male magnetic port in your phone.

Notes: Magnetic Charging cable can help your phone's female port survive longer since you don't pull in and out your plug often, it will also work as an anti dust cover for your port.



Note: If your female port is too lose, get it replaced and use one of these methods.

    Another note: Please use your original charging sockets(charging bricks), so the power output recommended for your battery will be delivered. To help your battery survive longer too.
