Wobbly USB-C connector?
Sorry if this is a FAQ; I searched and didn't see anything. Just got my first PinePhone and while charging after the first boot I noticed that sometimes if the cable is bumped (such as by picking up the phone while it's charging) I'll here the connect/disconnect notifications chatter a few times.  This doesn't always happen -- oddly enough, if I gently flex the end of the cable to test how much play it has it usually doesn't chatter -- but it does continue to occur randomly, a bit more often than I would like.

Is this normal?  There does seem to be a good deal more play than with other USB-C phones I've compared against.  Is there a special charging setup (e.g., a charging stand that fits especially well) or handling technique  needed to avoid damage?
