I have a T-Mobile Galaxy S5, and the back has been very squeaky. It seems that, if you are looking at its back, the left-center edge, right below the power button, doesn't completely seal.

A few days after I got the device, I noticed the squeaking. It's pretty annoying; whenever you grip the phone, it has the plastic-on-plastic sound annoying squeak. I went into T-Mobile and they swapped out the back panel, which seemed to solve the problem. However, I noticed the left-center edge still didn't quite seal properly. A few days later, it started to become squeaky again.

I was about to have the phone completely swapped out--T-Mobile took a new phone out of the box, but I noticed it had the same flaw on the left-center side. I opted not to swap it, since I figured the same damn thing would happen again.

Does anyone else have an issue like this? I'm worried it's not waterproof, and it feels really flimsy for a $650 phone.

Thanks!

I think it might just be all in your head man.

Same things happened to me bro, swapped it twices, and still same noisey back, so i rooted the phone, installed xposed installer, downloaded the module "Squeak fix [KK]", rebooted, (don't hot boot because sound will still persist) and i know your not gonna believe this, but when i entered my pin, got into the home screen... Squeak was gone. Unbelievable.
