Hi XDA. I purchased a P7P back in early November and recently it took a little tumble off my desk. Instinctively, I shook it to see if anything came loose and to my dismay it rattled. Upon further research, I found that the OIS in this and many other devices with similar camera hardware have this tendency to rattle. Do all P7Ps have this trait or is it a lottery? Would it be worth an exchange or will the new device most likely have the same "feature"?

Thanks

They ALL rattle. It's mechanical, it moves around when shaken.

Ahhh good... I guess. lol. I wonder if it would be possible to make a mod that left the camera at 5x zoom and then reset to 1x when the camera app was launched. At 5x zoom the rattle goes away.

Thanks for your response!
