    Over the last week or so of ownership, I've noticed the back slide panel (the one you remove to charge etc) has become less tight fitting and the bottom of the case around the panel has become creaky.

    When I hold the case, the pressure of my fingers will cause the panel to push in and the bottom of the case makes a creaking sound.

    It definitely didn't do it when I first got it..

    Is anyone experiencing the same issues?

    No issues. I take it off every 10 days or so to clean and dust that accumulates on the soft cover but no issues.

    The dock cover definitely loosened over time compared to when I originally received my Commuter case, at least not to the point where I was worried about it falling off. However, that was after 2 months or so of ownership. Not sure how it would have done later down the road.

    I still think it's a good case, but there are also other alternatives out there that would work just as well.
