Do you have the back warping as well? Hard to imagine what could be happening that would be so loud. No idea.

nope. back is perfectly level. it's just this one spot that's creaking. my old nexus 7 original did this as well, but that can be expected from a 200 dollar tablet... but not a "premium" tablet. oh well. annoying. it didn't do anything until like today, so it just wore out over time I guess? crappy but whatever. this is always an issue with samsung products i know, but it's the first time I've experienced it with a Samsung.

My Samsung galaxy s5 and note 2 are quite creaky so I expect my tab s to start creaking at some point.

Would using the book cover improve this?

It would indeed, but lots of people like to go naked with their devices. Personally I prefer my tablets in a case/cover and my phones naked. At the end of the day we shouldn't have to use cases or covers to disguise creaking.

True. I actually prefer the book cover. Naked this tab is so light and smooth I feel like I'm always going to drop it. The cover gives it just enough grip and heft.

I actually prefer this tab naked as I like the way it feels and handles. The main reason I got the book cover was for protection.
