With every scaled and closely watched hardware startup, hardware faults and other issues will come to light as more people receive devices. For example, some Pixel 3a owners reported random shutdowns over the weekend, while others now came across crooked cuts for the USB C and speaker grille.
Erica Griffin shared a picture on Twitter from a hardware defect with her Pixel 3a tonight . The cutout for the USB-C port does not match the actual port. Similarly, the holes of the lower speaker and the microphone are also awry.
In relation to each other, all three sections seem to be aligned correctly. However, with respect to the polycarbonate unibody (ie, the edge that hits the screen), it is clear that the cutouts are tilted to the top right.
This seems to be a new, clear white pixel 3a . In view of this misalignment. It is not clear if a USB-C cable can be plugged in properly to charge the phone. A handful of grip pendants also report some degree of curvature on their Made by Google phones, including the larger Pixel 3a XL.
On closer inspection my are also very weak. Almost unnoticed on my 3a XL. I had to pull a straight edge to make sure.

However, if owners notice this problem only now, this is likely not to be the case charging up. For Google, this problem with the crooked connection of Pixel 3a is a tedious development for manufacturing and quality assurance (QA).
It is unclear whether Google accepts a certain margin tolerance, but with USB-C cables a mistake An unplugged device – especially in a device without wireless charging – has absolutely negative effects on daily use , Google will likely replace a critical USB-C bug, but other situations may be different.
My 3a also has this
