    The screen on my Verizon Galaxy S8+ makes this strange clicking sound when wiping off the screen with a microfiber cloth. It's almost like the glass on the front of the phone is trying to stick down when applying pressure. Kind of like a plastic adhesive not quite sticking and popping up.

    I still have the factory plastic on my phone and thought it might be that, I don't think so.

    Anyone else notice this strange clicking sound when applying pressure to their screen?

    Should I exchange this phone before I run out of time?

    There is a thread about this problem over here in XDA:

    I don't notice anything. Maybe I am pushing in the wrong spots?

    I hate to have to exchange this thing. Think I'll pull off the factory plastic and make sure that's not my problem first.

    I had it to. But I think mine was from the screen protector. At least it doesn't make that clicking noise since I've gotten rid of the screen protector.

    I noticed the same issue on mine. I'm not using a screen protector or a case so it can't be that. Most of the clicking sound is around the centre left area of the screen.

    I'm having the same noise on my Sprint 8 Plus, and I do not have a screen protector on mine. It's almost like there is a dead space right under the screen itself. I can hear a crackle noise when cleaning the screen, and sometimes when I'm using the virtual keyboard. Thinking about exchanging it, before I end up with a dead screen.

    Same here, as the previous 2. So there is definitely a problem.

    I'm starting to think it could be a lousy glue job on the screen. Sounds like plastic trying to stick down but peeling right up. I still have the factory plastic on my screen while I wait for a decent protector. My problem might be the cheap factory plastic I'm using for a screen protector.

    I have the exact same problem on mine, I'm going to get it replaced tomorrow because it feels cheap honestly. It makes me uncomfortable about dropping it in the future, as in not really a fan of cases or screen protectors. It feels like there is an empty space somewhere on the bottom left ish of the phone.

    It happens to me too on my S8+ (verizon as well), I pushed down enough and managed to keep it stuck to whatever it's sticking to and it isn't doing it, but I bet it'll happen again, so I'm getting a replacement from Samsung. (I do not have a screen protector, so it's definitely the actually screen's problem)

    Just called Samsung and they know nothing about this problem and basically told me to F off.

    Verizon has the 30 day return or exchange policy with the S8/S8+ and I'm running out of days.

    Is it worth exchanging the phone over this problem?

    Hate for my screen to "Pop Off" 6 months down the road.

    Yup, same problem, as others have stated, mine seems to be the left center of screen. Thought it was just me until I was deleting a bunch of pictures and if I pressed in that area other pics check box would get check. :/

    I have the Exynos version and they seem to have the same problem. So apparently it is a global issue where the screen is not properly glued in the left/middle part of the phone. You can hear it clicking and feel it slightly detaching a little bit.

    The quality is ridiculous

    If you look carefuly you can see that there is a slight gap between the body and the screen, which is narrowing when you 'click' the screen. Such a disappointment

    Mine makes the same noise. AT&T with no case or screen protectors. Actually, if I try pressing down on the screen I don't hear anything; it's only when wiping the screen that I hear it. I honestly don't think it's defective and it doesn't really bother me. It's probably the result of the manufacturing process used to make the curved screens and different tolerances make it more noticeable on some units than others.
