Why are Samsung Galaxy USB ports special? Instead of being soldered on with 5 leads plus 2-4 supports, your Samsung devices have 11 leads and 7 supports in the same size jack!  Here you can see a damaged one (removed on the left) compared to the good one we repaired (installed on the right).  Two of them will fit on a dime!  The added support does make the jacks stronger, but if you plug in your cable upside down, or drop your device you will damage them just as easily as other USB-charged devices.

We do fix a lot of random USB devices though from tablets to phones and even USB charged bluetooth speakers.  Small device repairs start at $39 plus parts but we don't charge to look at your device before you decide to see if it's worth a repair attempt.
