So I picked up a Nokia 6.1 Plus on Gumtree, NIB, unwanted gift. The phone itself looks pristine, the box included all the things look completely untouched, just as pictured and described. But the USB-C port is dodgy as all hell and maybe sort of takes a charge if it's at *just* the right angle. Maybe. It does seem to be very slow to charge even when on this angle (usually with a little pressure too) and it does seem to give up if the table is bumped so doesn't seem to be able to be just put it down adjusted and left to charge up. The seller seems to have instantly deleted the ad and deleted the conversation after I picked it up and stupid me doesn't have any other contact details, met in person, paid in cash. First time in many many years I've run across something like this, but from now on I think phones from randoms are off the list of gumtree purchases. Anyway, the phone itself is beautiful, as an iPhone user this was a bit of a cheap test unit to see if I would like modern Android after which this unit could then to be handed to one of the kids as a cheap phone for them to destroy. Sadly this doesn't seem to be the case now. So I feel like this is either a broken board or a broken connector. If it's the board I'm probably SOL being such a cheap (and non-Australian) phone. If it's the connector, maybe it's repairable by the right person. Is there anywhere/one in Melbourne who is likely to: a) have the skillset to open this up and repair a connector. b) not charge a fortune for this. Or do I just chalk this up to lessons learnt and just buy one from Kogan or COTD for ~$300 delivered (arguably what I should have done in the first place). https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/nokia-61-plus-64gb-blue-nokia/ https://www.catch.com.au/product/no...=1&asp=1&aqi=ef478f782028f51f035df26a7101bd97 It *maybe* can be claimed under warranty in China (where it came from apparently), although with no receipt I don't know how well I will go but do have some Chinese speaking people at work who might be able to help me at least ask the question... not a lot to lose at this point. Plan C is to sell it as is for parts to try and at least get back something.
