The 10" Tab3 has the USB port on a flex cable that plugs into the motherboard. Very easy to replace.

The 7" and 8" have the USB port directly soldered onto the motherboard. I wouldn't suggest trying this unless you have soldering experience or want to learn. I replace them using a hot air station and desoldering equipment.
