    My N4 makes an annoying creaking sound every time I apply pressure to the area on the bottom right of the phone, near the USB hole. I'm not sure when this started or how, but it has been a few months that I discovered this issue. It used to be quiet and okay again if I put a bumper on, but now, it makes that creaking sound again even with the bumper on. So does anybody have the same issue? And if so, how bad?
    Also does the warranty cover replacing for this issue?

    Mine makes a loud creaking sound just above the volume buttons which can be heard every time you grip the phone to press the power button and there's a little creak by the bottom. I would assume its covered by the warranty because Google seem to be good at switching out any devices with imperfections but I can't be bothered to go through the hassle.

    Google doesn't replace phones due to your OCD. Just stop compulsively pressing it on that spot.

    No creaking on mine. Google will NOT issue an RMA for that.

    And they shouldn't. Mine creaks, but I never would have known or checked if it wasn't four this thread.

    Yeah, a little bit. Done it since day one, it doesn't really bother me anymore, but it is nice to know mine isn't the only one! (Have you tried giving the screws a little tighten? Doesn't eliminate it, but it made mine quieter)

    I've noticed that my 4 week old nexus 4 also "creaks" a bit when wiping clean the screen - usually up near the top area. Glad to hear it doesn't seem to be a big concern.
