    Hi !

    First sorry for my english.

    I bought a new S5 neo and I noticed something strange. When I press softly on the battery cover on the left side, it make weird cracking noise and open a little bit on the bottom left side (very minimal but its not perfectly closed). I chose the S5 because its waterproof (i am a fisherman) and the fact that the cover open even if its very minimal dont make me safe on the water.

    I tried to remove and reinstall it a few times, and nothink look broken or whatever.

    Is this "normal" or I am he only one to experience this problem? Do you think water will penetrate?

    The creaking is normal, but it should close all the way.
