Why two power ports on a budget laptop??
I have a couple of early Sony ZX phones in our house which have been charged every day for the last four years.
One of them has just about become unusable as even a new cable is too loose in the socket.
The other isn't far behind.

So I think that I am entitled to believe that the usb-C ports on these phones are not as tough as the barrel sockets that still work on some of my truly ancient laptops (Compaq NC610 with a real parallel port anyone?, or IBM Thinkpad T23? or how about a Toshiba Tecra 800 that still works as a Bosch KTS diagnostic computer, last update in 2007).
