Default [Q] USB connector damage

The USB connector on my Tab 3 7" is damage.
I can not get the cable in and just by looking at it I can see that some pins are bent.

The table is only 3 months old.

I was wondering if it was possible to return it to Samsung for repair under the warranty?
I'm not even sure if that's cover?

Or try to do the repair my self.

Any help or suggestion are welcome.

I have had a couple Samsung cables crap out on me. I have been using an LG G2 cable and it works better I think. Charge even seems faster, and longer.

My problem was with the connector within the table.

Also, like mention by aliquzwini, make sure that the charger is not above 5V, 2A.
Yes it will charge a lot faster but your battery life will be affected in the long run.

Thanks for your suggestion anyway
