    i think im just being ocd but there is a point on the right side of the iPhone SE display around the middle well if you put your fingers there and then try to bend it downwards with hardly any force there is like some clicking noise coming out of the bottom right of the device idk what it is but im a bit worried that the click noise is supposed to be there again i repeat im not trying to bend the phone but if you put a little pressure there you can hear the click is it normal

    My 6+ had this, if I squeezed the bottom left? or right? of my phone, it made a clicking noise. I had the phone for 1.5 years and it didn't affect the operation at all ---- but it was annoying at first. Eventually I just lived with it. I remember searching the forums and there was a fair number of other people that had similar things - enough to make me not worry about it.

    When you say clicking - mine was like almost inaudible clicking - like the glue was grabbing the screen then letting go when I squeezed my phone.

    had this with my 6

    Bottom right would click when pushed. Took my iPhone to apple and they opened it and said my iPhone had water corrosion on the right hand side. After telling me I'd have to fork over cash for a repair even tho my phone has never been wet I kicked up a stink and they finally replaced my phone. I asked to see the phone and there was visible corrosion.

    It's not normal. But as BigMcguire said, it won't affect the functionality of the iPhone from my understanding. My iPhone 6 also had This in a specific spot on the iPhone. It's almost a slight creaking sound. I was told it's the display separating away from the adhesive, which results in a popping sound. Mine was replaced twice due to this.

    Actually mine happens if you do it in a very specific way you guys the problems you are saying sounds like it happens under normal use, but I can't seem to make the sound with the leather case on, you literally have to try to "bend test" the phone without actually putting pressure to get that sound otherwise I can't get the sound at all

    Strange. Whatever issues you're experiencing seems to be very minor. I would just continue to monitor it and make sure it doesn't worsen from that point forward. From the way it sounds, when the display flexes, it makes a creaking noise in a specific area.

    I think I'm being OCD about it, because it's extremely difficult to reproduce the noise unless you do it on a specific area in the phone. I think I'm just unnecessary taking this as an issue.

    That's how I looked at it. I lived with it and ... unless I tried I couldn't reproduce it so - I just pretended it didn't exist and I used my 6+ for 1.5 years and sold it back to Apple for $300. :p

    I had this on my old iPhone 5. It usually means the screen is loose from the clamps.

    I think this is the right answer.
