My Nexus 7 (2013) has been great, but I have an issue when holding in landscape mode. I have creaking when I hold the screen at the upper, right corner area in landscape mode (lower, right in portrait). See image below. This doesn't look like screen lift like the 2012 N7 had, rather it feels like its coming from inside the unit.

Anyone else experience this?

Yes, I've noticed the same thing on my device. Definitely doesn't seem like a screen separation issue. I've been debating talking to customer service.

What causes the noise? When you squeeze that area? Does it occur with pressure on just the front or the back?

Going off of memory at the moment, but the issue is caused for me when I squeeze the front and back together

I'm not even putting much pressure on it, simply griping the screen when I hold it, doesn't take much to creak.

I want to exchange but Amazon has a 4 week wait for shipping...crap.

Terrible Asus experience, Lousy QC, Bad Service

I am also having this problem. I am just forced to live with it. The build quality is abysmal.

If I remember right, popping off the back shouldn't void warranty. (Unscrewing the tamper screws does)

Pop it off and use a hair dryer on that area and squeeze. Unless there's a bubble of no adhesive at all behind it causing the creak. It's fairly easy to do, and I used a cheap hair dryer to fix my screen.

EDIT: Actually, I guess you just have to carefully heat up the front of the screen. If that doesn't work I would send it in because of OCD. Unless you're willing to separate and re-glue.
