    I have the same problem, although very minor. The problem seems to be just around the right middle portion. While there aren't any visible flaws, such as a gap between the back cover and the bezel, I can hear the two portions moving ever so slightly. How severe is your prob?

    @gbears2010 If it is quiet in the room I can hear it when I pick it up and hold it in certain ways. It is def noticeable and therefore annoying. Looks like I'll have to exchange it as I'll never be happy with it otherwise.

    I got a nexus 7 from Staples and it has just a small gap on the left side (the side with no buttons) and I've tried and it doesn't make noise but it just being there is really a disappointment in Asus and their quality inspection, and i wonder if I contact them if they will send me a free one or atleast exchange a new one for the one i currently have.

    I have same issue. Top of device has very noticeable gap between frame and back cover, sides are flush though. Still, on to second device as former had large dent on silvered edge, not impressed with Asus.

    I know this is an old thread about the first Nexus 7, but I just got my first Android tablet, the new model Nexus 7, earlier this week. I'm here because I have the same issue and was googling about it. Seriously, the right side of the screen, middle third, the back case is slightly loose so it sort of clicks when I hold the tablet with my right hand. I hear it, it's extremely annoying. I can see this issue affected lots of original Nexus 7, apparently the fix is to remove the back cover and tighten a screw. I may have to look into that, I don't think I could take a couple years of this annoying noise from the loose back cover.

    My N7 has had that creek sound in the right middle for as long as I have owned it (from launch). I'm hearing it right now as I fondle my tablet - annoying, I could see that but never really had it bother me that much. Just the price you pay for a nice spec tablet at a decent price.

    I'm having the same issue, the top left corner of my nexus had a creak between the tablet and its back cover. Its not that big of a deal and does not effect its proformance, just a little annoying.
