    I've owned the Pixel 4A since November of last year and to this day there are certain areas of the phone that creak when squeezed.

    I notice a slight creaking noise when pressing my finger on the area below the camera housing on the back side. It is also more noticeable and louder when I press my finger on the area between the power button and volume button. Fortunately the 4A doesn't have the squeeze to function feature so I don't hear this often especially since I use a case. The only times I notice is when I take it out of the case and clean the phone.

    It is not a total deal breaker for me and I understand it is plastic but it's still a bit disappointing to see this on a "higher end" budget phone particularly when I never had this issue with my previous 3A XL that felt quite solid.

    I was thinking going the RMA route but the phone itself works perfectly fine.

    Have any of you experienced this?

    So far I haven't heard any creaks on mine.

    No but why worry if it only happens when you take the case on and off? It's working perfectly fine, right?

    My doesn't break either but ... do you mean to imply that creaks are acceptable? I think not. OP should get that looked at. Even if it's a benign case mis alignment that's not what I'd pay for.
