Hi All,

I have an issue with the S5 battery cover.

When I hold the phone and by mistake I squeeze it from the middle-right area of the body (as highlighted in the picture), the clips on the right side of the phone cracks and some how I need to push on the edge to push them back to their normal position.

I am afraid it impacts the water resistance of the device. and I am wondering about the material quality if it is that weak.

Please tell me if you have the same issue.

Thanks,

What do you mean cracks? Mine makes a small noise if I squeeze pretty hard but I don't think it will affect the water resistance as it's not disconnecting, just sounds like it's straining.

If it's a loud noticeable crack and you have to click it back in place afterwards then the side of the case could be open enough to let water in.

Thanks alot for the feedback.

It is some how not noticeable, but yes it needs to click it back in place afterwards.

Thanks,

I have been over some threads that mention this issue, but just found this one that really describes what is happening on my s5.
Did you happen to have it fixed by Samsung? I just tested with some water again on top of it and it leaked quite a bit of water inside next to the sd card - everything still works and i dried everything but won't try that again so soon =/
