Thank you for reaching out.
Are you using the original charger that came with the phone?
Have you tried another charger with the phone?
Do you experience these symptoms if you test your device in safe mode?
-If your phone is misbehaving, it's possible that a third-party app is causing the issue. To figure out what app is acting funny, you can use the Safe Mode feature. In Safe Mode, your phone won't run any third-party apps. This allows you to easily identity and remove the app that may be causing the problem.

I would recommend wiping the cache partition on your device. The system cache partition stores temporary system data. It's supposed to allow the system to access apps more quickly and efficiently, but sometimes things get cluttered and outdated, so a periodic cache clearing can help make the system run more smoothly. give these steps at try:
- Turn off the device.
- Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby / Power key.
- When the Android logo displays, release both keys.
- An 'Installing system update' message will show for 30 - 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu options appear.
- Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
- Press Bixby / Power key to select.
- Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Bixby / Power key to select.
- When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
- Press the Bixby / Power key to restart the device.
If you still continue to experience these symptoms after trying the troubleshooting provided, I would recommend a service repair. You can take your device to your local UbreakIfix or ship your device in for service.

As I'm sure you know, there are about half a dozen recommendations out there to solve your problem...
Have you tried flattening/softening the end of a toothpick, and putting some rubbing alcohol on it and then carefully trying to clean the charging port with it? That seems to help lots of times. 🤞
