    Without a case, when you pick up your phone, or press it on the right side, does it squeak?

    Edit: Solution! Credit to DocHolliday.

    Cut a business card to your liking and place it on top of the battery. Then put the cover back on. Sure enough, squeaking is gone!

    Same for me. :( This phone has such awesome specs...why does it have to have horrible build quality?

    Mine didn't when I first got it but after sending my Seidio back and putting the stock battery back in, it does squeak now. Kinda annoying...

    squeak like a mouse, an old mattress? I voted no cause no noise comes out of my phone when I do these things to it... What is causing it?

    Yup. If enough people honestly say they don't have it, I might take mine back...but then again I spent so much time getting into recovery for root. lol

    With a non OEM battery did you not have a squeak?

    I voted 'yes' but thats not really accurate. When I press on the battery cover on the right side it pushes in slightly. However it doesn't make a noise so I actually wouldn't say that it squeaks.

    Overall not a very significant issue for me though.

    I didn't have it before I used the Seidio. My Seidio battery was obnoxiously tight, in fact when I first got it I decided it didn't fit but after 2-3 tries I got it to pop into place.

    Not many votes yet.. But I am surprised 6 yes and we have never seen a thread about this before. I have stock battery and I am like pushing really hard on the sides trying to do everything to get some weird noise to come out of it.. nothing.
    Was really shocked you said this had a bad build quality too.. This has to be one of the more solid phones I have ever owned.. I don't feel like I have to baby the hell out of it just so something does not break (Looking at you Pre Plus).

    Pushed hard on the sides, back, etc. and tried every thing I could think of to get some type of noise out of it like what you describe. Got nothing.

    So voted no here.

    Mine squeeks with the oem battery... But I do not use it much, and it is not a big deal. Annoying, but not the end of the world.

    It seems that HTC build quality is lacking, compared to Motorola. they need to take some pointers and make their phones sturdier IMO

    Yes mine makes noises if I push in on the sides of the back cover. I think because the back cover is so flimsy and flexible, that is the reason why it creeks. Not a problem at all for me as I am using a VZW black hardshell case.
    I also noticed that under normal handling, there is no problem at all with it creeking. I really have to squeeze pretty hard for it to make any noise.

    Other than the back cover, this thing is built like a tank ! The tradeoff is worth it to me to have such a slim phone.

    No squeak here. I even took the battery out and put it back in and put the battery cover back on just to be sure. No squeak.

    Yes it does. Both with the stock battery and the new extended battery and battery door.

    Mine did and I seem to have found a simple fix. Take a business card and cut it in half. Place over the battery and put the back cover back on. Phone stops creaking and even feels more solid. Mine wasn't that bad, but enough to annoy me.
