Ports and buttons are notorious for "mechanical" damage, which is why some kind of quick release for charging (magnetic or like Nokia's chargers) is desirable, even better is wireless.

And you wouldn't believer the shit that gets under the buttons: fluff, dust and water are just the start of it. Hence, again why modern phones have fewer buttons.
