Default Camera lens (OIS) sound?

Hey all,

Just a quick question (No, I won't bitch about RMAing ****s left and right)

Do N5 camera lenses make small rattle-like noise when you type with touch vibration on?

I've seen somewhere that due to its OIS system, it will make some noise in certain condition

Just wanted to confirm

Thanks in advance

Yes, mine makes a rattle sound, but I don't think it's coming from the camera. I always thought that it was from the volume keys rattling.

It can also be the vibrator motor.

If you hold the buttons, they can't rattle. Probably best not to shake the device though

Yeah I can confirm that there is some other parts also rattling than buttons. This rattle appears when shaking phone to certain direction or tapping top of the phone (if you know what I mean). It seems to be camera lens or atleast the rattling seems to come from somewhere near camera.
Edit: the noise is indeed the lens. Just tried to tap it when using camera and there is no rattle cause I guess camera somehow "locks" the lens. Anyways, these devices are not made for unnecessary shaking and searching for rattling sounds. Just interesting to know the source of that little "rattle".
