Some Pixel 3a users report crooked USB-C and improper alignment of ports

22 May 2019 3

Google very brilliantly executed its idea of bringing the best camera to the hands of users on a budget. The company put its secret sauce behind the processing of its camera into the new Pixel 3a series while compromising on some of the high-end features. But this doesn’t mean the users would also neglect the manufacturing defects, no matter how imperceptible they are.

There are several complaints from the Pixel 3a users who could see the crooked USB-C ports. While this may get neglected in your day to day usage, the kind of work done is unacceptable for sure.

The tech YouTuber Erica Griffin shared a picture on Twitter of a hardware defect with her Pixel 3a. As you would see, the cutout for the USB-C port is not aligned with the actual connector. Similarly, the bottom speaker and microphone holes are also crooked. In fact, all these three cutouts aren’t properly aligned and this does look shoddy. This isn’t the case of Griffin’s phone as a handful of her followers are also reporting some degree of crookedness on their Made by Google phones, including the Pixel 3a XL.

Google Pixel 3a phones are already going through one more issue which is the random shutdown. While this can be rectified with a possible update, the manufacturing defect could go totally unaltered.

Follow the upcoming discussion on the issue to know more about the same. And, do let us know if your Pixel 3a has this improper alignment and crooked issue with the help of using the comments section below.
