Sony Xperia Z3 back cover is lifting up itself!!!

I bought the Z3 Dual for about a week. Today i felt like that my finger slipped from the edge of the glass when touched the back cover. So i checked the back cover and found the top side and left side are above the midframe. I nearly believed it just should be. When i tried to press the edge of the back cover, i noticed it came down a little, and when i let go, it went up again. Though it's a tiny move, i really saw that very clearly. Why it happened? Overheat motherboard? Do you have the same problem? And if the phone still waterptoof?

my z3 compact is the same. been for repair before and the replaced screen,usb part and other bits inside.

 

i had the phone on the side while it was raining and when went to camera it was all steamy thats when i noticed it was falling apart.sending it back again tomorrow

 

when you do the pressure test it shows its not water tight. ( *#*#7378423#*#*)

 

after its repaired i will sell it. i dont trust it . if it gets wet im sure i will be to blame

i have same issue with my z3. Sony service said it was my fault and they want to charge me 150$ arround. Since its not about me, i wont repair it. My z3 is under investigation by notary with court order. You can track my matter here,

Mate,  for some reason ive seen 3 posts with the same problem,  same device color and and same place. Anyways i see some outline around the camera lens and flash light. You sure it isnt a back glass protector or some kind of thin tempered glass?
