    In certain places if you listen out for it, sure. Just feels like the material though rather than any defect. The cover has to be somewhat loose to be removable.

    Mine has been getting creakier over time, but I have taken the cover off several times. Its pretty minor creaking currently though. Most noticeable around the bottom of the phone.

    Happens in my Lumia 950 too, at the bottom left! Its only when you press & if you're paying attention you can hear it.

    A better question to ask:

    Is there a super easy, quick, no cost fix?

    Yes, place post-it notes, masking tape, or hockey tape on the inside of the back cover near the bottom left and bottom right corners.

    My V10 has a removable back. It does not creek and does not feel loose. The creaking is a design flaw. My 640 also creaks.

    It happens around the battery place/side, so pushing case harder there, you hear the sound, why? In my understanding, battery sits a little lower than phones body/frame, that makes a little gap in between and case with battery does not touch, pushing, squeezing makes it bend, that is why you hear the creak. Negate the gap with creativity and there will be no sound.

    Then, is it the cover that doesn't go with the body ? or the body doesn't go with the cover ?

    has anyone tried Mozo cover ? does it solve the creaking issue ?

    Yes, because it is leather instead of plastic, besides Mozo are not that good, sides made from plastic are very cheap made and breaks easy.
    There are Guides/Tweeks for fixing the creak, by adding something in between, some added tape others added paper, some sticked it to a battery, others to a cover.

    But some of them doesn't creak at all. only a small group of Lumia 950 that creak i believe. i am not sure if it's because of flaw of a design.

    The more times you take the cover off too, matters. Each time I take it off it gets softer and creakier.

    For me it eventually goes away. I think the polycarbonate back adjusts with heat and such and the creak for me eventually disappears.

    With exceptional design these issues do not occur.

    My stock back cover also creaked (quite loudly) on the bottom left corner every time it was pressed, even quite gently.
    I bought the Mozo cover and the creak is more or less gone (it still happens very rarely but far more quietly than the stock cover).
    Overall the Mozo cover transforms the phone into what I would consider a build quality equal of an iphone 4 and much better than an iphone 5 or 6.

    What do you do about it ? do you buy a new Mozo cover for this creaking issue ?

    This is a BAD design job or quality control in manufacturing by Microsoft. C'mon, Redmond!! This is a (allegedly) flagship phone. Creaky shouldn't be a feature. The Lumia 735 is rock solid - no creaking or flexing. In fact, it took me a while just to figure out how to remove the 735 back to install a micro-SD card.

    There is such a thing called "manufacturing tolerances" you know. With the quantities these phones are ordered it is a certainty that they are using a multi cavities mould. Or even multiple moulds. You will not get the same dimensions each time. For injection mouldings the standard is +/- 0.1 mm. That is around 0.004 inches for USA audiences. There is a reason it is called a "Statistical Quality Control". Or to paraphrase a popular saying, you can call it "Liar's Dimensions" if you prefer.

    Yet the Lumia 735 shows no such aberrations. Face it - Microsoft rushed this one out the door and the sheer number of reviews, by both tech sites and end users, says this is not a statistical aberration. Nobody with LG flagship phones is complaining about this. Nor Samsung users. Lets hope Microsoft gets is right with the Surface Phone.
