Default Back cover creaks

Hi everyone,
I'm having a problem with the back cover of my Nexus 5. When i touch around the flash LED i can hear a suspicious creaking sound. I had never heard a problem like this un this forum. Should i order a replacement?

Thanks

Did you drop your device? Could be a manufacturing fault as well... If you can bear the slight creaking, just ignore it.. Else RMA it...

However, I don't see the point in RMA'ing a device for such a petty reason. What if you could get a device with other defects?

Do you hear that sound when you touch around the upper right section of display? You might be hearing the power buttons rattle.

What do you mean? I'm talking about the bigger speaker holes, smoother plastic edge and tighter key holes/no sharp edges anymore.
