    Default Wireless Charging Cover OEM Fitment Issue

    Does anyone notice when shining a flashlight that the cover leaves a gap on the side with the power button? I thought it was my cover but I has it replaced and it still does it. My stock cover fits fine but creaks on that side and this cover also creaks and I can feel give.

    Okay, so I went to Verizon and tested the cover on a brand new S5. No issues so they're sending me a replacement.

    I'm going to have to accept the creaking because it still creaks on a replacement phone and I tested a few Wireless Covers. Its always the same spot on the power button side. My stock cover does it too but due to its thinness its less noticeable. My Note 3 was built great but the S5 is very annoying and cheap.

    Yea mine does it too for some reason. I thought it was a defective Back Cover, went back to the Samsung Mobile Store, and asked if I could try a different one. More or less, it does the same but better than the first one, since it does less creak. I've even tested by dunking in water and works okay, water hasn't gone inside at all.

    I figure its fine for water since the rubber seal is still tight. I just can't stand creaks but I will deal with it. My second cover was better but ended up happening again.

    I did notice that the back cover doesn't actually have many "locking" clicks on the power button side when compared to the volume side. In fact, that's probably why the back cover creaks on that side in 4 different wireless covers I've tried and even stock.

    Yes, extremely annoying. I'm living with it though and I'm hoping the Diztronic case silences it a bit. Won't be perfect but at least the stock cover becomes better since you have to use pressure points to make the noise which I can live with. I just don't want them from normal use.

    Lately the creaking has become unacceptable to me! I refuse to accept the amount of creaking this phone is doing during normal use. I hope the Note 4 is better because I'm ditching this phone asap. I'd go for an HTC One M8 but the camera scratching isn't something I'm willing to accept.

    I thought my Note 2 was bad but the S5 is now feeling like the cheapest phone I've ever owned. Wireless Cover or stock its creaky!

    Sorry for my rant. I can live with plastic but not when it feels like the cover isn't even latching fully and then creases.

    I guess I got lucky no creaking. Then again it could be that's it's 2:30 AM. LOL

    Haha, possibly.

    I don't know, I just removed the Wireless Cover and out on my Spigen Slim Armor. No more creaking due to the design. I'd rather have no creaking than wireless charging lol.

    I admit I may be unreasonable seeing as plastic creaks but if you heard the how loud the creak was it would drive any of you nuts. Haha. Jumping to a Note 4 is mostly out of frustration and most likely wouldn't happen.

    Agreed, an easy fix is to not squeeze it there where it creaks. I don't do it intentionally to make it creak either. If it creaks then it creaks. I can deal with that. Plus I've decided to have my phone go completely go naked.

    Haha, I know. I'm just so OCD and the creak is on the outer edge by the clips so its difficult.

    I just noticed you have the Verizon S5. I'm guessing that's the problem, I remember on eBay the seller made a note that the Wireless Back Cover doesn't fit on Verizon.

    It's unbelievable they're the only company that makes changes to the OEM (see the G3 variants) and add their ******* logos. LOL

    That makes absolutely no sense. Lol, the cover does fit the S5. It just creaks on the power button side edge where the cover has no clips near the Samsung logo. My standard cover creaks in the same area although not as loud since its flexible.

    I'm just guessing and thought the eBay note was odd too. LOL

    Definitely, I mean if it wasn't compatible why would it have the Qi ports? People put weird things.

    My stock black cover "creaks" when I press it or grab the corners and twist it to test the build quality. I bought a few eBay covers in different colors and no creaking. Same with the oem wireless back, tighter fit. I use a rigid case anyways, so it's not a problem. I think the gasket gives the cover some bounce to it. My stock black cover will creak pretty much anywhere I press hard enough.
