Default Creak/squeak during vibration

Hello everybody, I wrote this also in the official OPO forum, but nobody seems to have my problem. Basically when the phone vibrates (during typing, with notifications or anything else), most of the times I can hear a sort of creak/squeak coming from the phone, probably corresponding to the vibrating mechanism inside the phone. If I try to push through the back cover nothing happens, it's very solid and does not squeak as my old Nexus 5 did. It seems like something coming from the inside. I think it could be related to the vibrating mechanism touching somewhere on the motherboard or any other piece of hardware inside the phone.

Anyone else has the same problem? That's quite disappointing

Hey there,

Oddly enough I have noticed the same thing. Not sure if its worth me kicking a stink up over it or not yet.

Just received my OPO today and I have the same issue. I had this issue on some Nokia 920 and some older HTC phones. After doing a warranty replacement on those devices the problem went away. Its definitely a hardware issue in my opinion.

Still deciding if I want to keep this phone. Also have the yellow hue problem at the bottom of the phone and some very dim capacitive touch screen buttons.

Its a shame. I'm really enjoying this phone for other reasons.

1) The yellow hue at the bottom of the screen is supposed to go away over time.

2) The capacitive buttons are intended to be dim so that's definitely not a defect.

Thank you for the quick response. After using the phone for the past couple of hours it seems the yellow hue has already gone done. Either that or my eyes are adjusting to it.

I wish you could adjust the brightness of the buttons. Maybe a future software update will fix that. I also have turned off the capacitive button but you lose some screen real estate by doing that.
