Hi everyone,

I just got my phone yesterday. I like it very much! But somehow I found out that if I hold the phone at the bottom portion and flick the top half back and forth, I can hear something rattling inside the phone. Even if I shake it side ways, I can hear it too. I made sure that it is not from the volume rockers, sim card, or camera lens. Can anyone confirm if this happens on their phone too? Thanks a lot!

Yeah that happens on mine too.
Not sure what that is.

After doing some research it seems to be normal that all do it.
It has to do with the auto focus of the camera.
If you start the camera and check you won't hear that rattle anymore.

The S5's in the store all had this camera rattle. The better the camera, the more moving parts, which means more audible rattle.
