Question Charger Port Concern

Hi guys, finally received this beast of a phone after a few week's of waiting

Is anyone else having issues inserting the supplied charger into the nexus 5 port? Very afraid of charging this now since it's near impossible to get this in. Can anyone confirm if it's normal that the actual port is quite deep into the phone as is?

The thought of having pushed the port in deeper accidentally already would be a nightmare

You are not alone, i'm here with you.. :P

Ok now to the point, I have the same problem though its not a problem. What you need to do is carefully insert the cable while slightly pushing it upwards.. Its not misaligned or something.. It's very hard to get it in..

I find that if you angle the micro USB plug upward a bit, it seems to go in better.

Mine is definitely a tight fit but I still use my Samsung charger most of the time which goes in a bit easier

I find other chargers easier to insert.
