Default question for 2ds owners

Hi guys,
New to the forums, life long nintendo fan.
Recently got myself a 2DS, which is great! It suits my needs perfectly! And I personally dont like the hinge.
I do have a question though, on the left side of the 2DS, just under the L button, the blue side plate squeaks when pushed. Part of my left hand rests on there, so when it gets a bit intense, i hear creaking. Does that happen to other owners too?

Default Nintendo 2DS Creaking

Clement, I bought a Sea Green Nintendo 2DS for myself about a week ago and have thus far logged between 35 to 40 hours into it.

Unfortunately, the creaking is a rather common occurrence (particularly the side panels).

However, I really believe this system was built to last (and man is it comfy). It's just that the plastics used in the design are light.

I love my 2DS, maybe even more than the 3DS XL I had. My side panels do the exact same thing. They almost seem like buttons. Not sure what the deal is with them, but glad I am not the only one! It seems fine though, and personally it doesn't bother me. So unless it is really annoying to you, I wouldn't worry about it. Seems like a common problem.
