USB Type-C connector overmold conflicts with the back cover
#1
Bug 
I found that the plug overmold conflicts with the back cover when using the cable with a short plug (6.6mm). It charges the phone, but the retention mechanism is loose and the cable falls out when it swings.

According to Universal Serial Bus Type-C Cable and Connector Specification Release 2.0 page 46, the minimum length of the type-c plug is 6.51mm, so PinePhone should accept this cable.

FYI the Type-C specification recommends >=0.05mm clearance between the exterior surface of the product and plug overmold.

Thanks, already ask product team looking into your suggestion.
