Default Charger port cover

Hey guys. My phone is about two Months old our so and my charger port cover is already not staying shut good. I'm thinking about getting a wireless charging setup, but was trying to avoid it because of the cost. Anyone else having this issue?

Also what wireless setups is everyone running?

How do you even install this ? Just wondering for future reference hopefully not anytime soon...... But does the thing that hold it in place just gets pushed in there ? how will you take the old one out ? Or do you have to take the whole phone apart, Making the phone not being waterproof anymore which basically will be pointless since that is the whole point of this lol

You have to take out 1 screw from the back. Thats it.

Well no, but what other choice do you have? The bright side is it's only $5. I mean, the only other option is to get a wireless charging sticker (which breaks the water resistance anyway), or a real samsung wireless charing back cover. Both are more expensive than just replacing this flap every 2-3 months. I'm pretty disappointed in Samsung if this is truly the case though.

Just actually took a look at the phone and you are correct so not that bad kind of annoying but at least is an easy fix let me save the link for the port cover just in case I need it in the future lol
