My phone did the same thing 2 nights ago... The charging port burned while charging and smell of burned plastic was coming out.
Took it to the samsung local dealer and he said the port is not covered by the waranty even if the phone is only 9 months since bought and they refused to repair it because the screen had a small crack on the opposite edge.
So they offered me a single option to replace the screen and the port and pay 250 euros OR they will not fix the charging port and they will leave the phone as it is and return it back.
Is this normal ? Is the charging port not covered by the warranty or was i fooled???
