    May I know Note 8 is the area near the USB C connector a painted area coated with silver paint or is the whole thing a solid metal area? Will the paint that be peeled of due to frequent plug in out of cable scratching the slot area? Is the interior metal material silver metal color if you cut the metal into half?

    I am asking this to know if the paint can be chipped or peel off by frequent plug in and plug out of the charging cable. My old phone that area paint is peeled off due to frequent cable plug in/out. If Note 8 will peel USB connector area is coated with paint, I am thinking of using magnetic connector and cables to prevent it from peeling due to plug in/out of the connector head. Thanks.

    S4 connector area silver paint peeled off due to frequent plug in/out of usb cable.

    Lots/most phones have a nice plastic insert around the charging port to prevent any damage. I can't really see one on my Note 8.
