It might be because your battery has expanded and separated the case front and back. This happened on my old phone as well. You probably want to look at the cause of it separating.

If the battery doesn't last that long anymore it is probably the culprit. Try this "protect battery" in the future if you plan on keeping your phone for more than a couple years1694385509852_1694385509844_0.png

Did you physically look at the battery to determine it was "fine? 

A battery can act fine even when they are on their way out.  About the only thing that can pop off the back is an expanding battery, which is a fire hazard.

Warranty will cover that.  If it is a swelling battery which does happen from lack of use. 

What can be dangerous is if you try to charge a battery that has gotten to the point where you can see it swelling. “As you charge it, it will cause the electrolyte to break down even more,” Shi said. Then the battery may swell up more and eventually might rupture, and “the heat from the battery damage might cause a thermal event.”
