    I just bought the Lumia 640 dual sim, and I noticed the back cover peels off quite easily, a little too easily to be honest. I wonder if its just in my phone or a general design flaw, but it feels like one small fall and it'll fly right off. Anyone else feel the same?

    It could be a manufacturing defect.

    Go to the place you bought it from and see if other models have the same issue. Or check out a store that has them and see if it's similar. Could be a broken or missing clip.

    If you bought it online see what the return policy is and have it replaced.

    I bought 2 640's this week: a black matte for me and a white glossy for my daughter. I have a firmer grip on the black one which fits tight around the phone. The glossy one feels like it could slip more easily out of your hand while the cover is more loose around the phone.

    I read somewhere that loose right top is because it makes removing back cover easier

    Same problem with my 640. Top corners had some sort of slack, untill I stick them to the phone body with double taped band. :D

    Yes, it is loose up the tip corners.I think its an intentional design decision.It makes no difference to anything though,as long as you don't drop the phone it wont come apart.You still have to use some force to get it off

    I have the blue cover and both top corners "creaked" a little more than they should when squeezed. I took the thinnest black rubber band I could find and cut a super thin slice and put them in the corners as shown by the red arrows. You don't want anything that will permanently squish flat, like tape, but something instead that will retain its rebounding properties, like the rubber band. You shouldn't have to squeeze very hard to fit it, and looking at the side profile there shouldn't be any bulge. Thin. Yes... I say, a "sliver-thin" shaving of rubber band. That'll do it!

    If this doesn't work. Just throw my advice in the trash. Also, enjoy this picture of my cat.lumia-squeek-vert.jpg
    Edit: After re-reading the original post. I guess my solution doesn't address the cover coming off too easily. It's meant to address the squeeking.

    Perhaps I lucked out. I have a matte black and the rear cover is tight as can be, it's a fantastic fit!
