    I've gotten to really hate FedEx, I've had similar issues where they'd give "exceptions" for really poor reasons. I'm at the point now that I always attempt to leave it at the warehouse, if an Air shipment, or at a local Walgreens, if ground. FedEx has separate warehouses for Air and Ground, what is odd is that they won't even send the ground shipments to the Air warehouse for pickup -- I have to send it to a FedEx store or a Walgreens. It typically takes an extra day to get it delivered to Walgreens (they "need" a day to change the label on the package) but at least I don't get the delivery exception.
    That’s likely why because the one by my house is ground. But oh well, it’s here and seems to be solid. I will set it up tonight after I shower because it’s easier to install screen protectors then and it needs to heat up right now as it’s cold.

    Truthfully I’ve begun to dislike a lot of companies lol.

    I applied a cheap Tempered Glass protector and put it in my Speck Grip. Ready to roll once it updates! No abnormal noises coming from the phones body at all which I’m extremely happy about. Too bad the glass has two small bubbles but they generally go away. I pushed them down but they come back so I’m hoping for the best. Either way, no biggie. It’s perfectly aligned, minimal to no dust underneath and it’s being replaced with Belkin once the replacement arrives.

    Edit: This cheap protector fingerprints up so much.

    Here’s an oddity to report. My battery life is superior to my old iPhone X. Everything is setup the same way but it’s lasting much longer. I’m just speculating here but maybe my battery was puffing up and causes the creaking?

    Long shot I’m sure but this battery is much better.

    I’m not trying to make a big issue about this but does anyone else’s iPhone X creak on the upper corners? I just reached over to hit my mute switch and it creaks now and this just started to happen in the last few hours. I’ve had the device since November 29th so it’s possible it just formed an abnormality. I’ve read others have had the issue but I’ve also read many haven’t had such an issue as of yet. It’s been mixed results with Apple for those that have had issues as some Apple employees say it’s within normal limits and others say it shouldn’t happen. I am a firm believer that with the build materials used there shouldn’t be an issue but then again who knows.

    Anyone else? I will likely head to an Apple Store but I’m waiting until my new Belkin protector arrives because mine started lifting on the top left corner. Oddly enough, this is where I’m starting to hear the creak nearly 2 weeks later so I’m wondering if there’s an underlying issue there. I applied a cheap glass protector and it’s sticking fine but nonetheless I wonder if the flex caused a lift.

    On a side note, I’ve also had static on my speaker when listening to music at the top 2 volumes and also the speaker phone. I don’t think everyone has this issue so I may be requesting a replacement based on this issue too if necessary.
    Just noticed by accident mine does creak in top left corner. Same area as yours. Tested wife’s X. Hers creaks too. Just not as bad as mine.

    No creaking sounds on my X or speaker static. Phone is solid.

    Welcome to creak central. Mine creaks up near the ear speaker when wiping with a microfiber cloth.

    Yeah it seems most do in that exact same spot. Must be what’s underneath there or something. I’m sure many would never notice but once you notice, you can always hear it now.

    I don’t have any unusual creaking ever since replacing my device. I guess it may be there but I’ve tried before and didn’t notice anything. The creaking on my old device, as you already mentioned, was much worse than what you’re noticing now. I could touch that device anywhere and it would creak as much as an old plastic phone. As of now my phone is solid and I’m loving it with this newly designed Belkin Glass.
