My S8 Active just started smelling like burning, and I looked in the charge port and on the USB c connector and the connector looks somewhat melted, I haven't tried charging with a different cable but anyone think my port will be ok?
Its possible that your charger is shorting out. Continuing to charge could damage your device even more, or even pop the battery. I suggest taking it to a phone repair place
@Choy188 Thank you for reaching out. Can I please have your full model number, IMEI, and pictures of the symptom you are experiencing in a private message?
