    Has anyone noticed the loud rattle from the image stabilization of the camera? You gotta tap the phone on the sides near the top

    Not buying the phone or your shared conspiracy theory with Windex52 about several phone makers saying OIS system rattle when shaking or tapping is normal ? It's not a MotoX so why tap or shake?

    when the camera is not on, and you tap on the sides in a very quiet room you will hear a little rattle, every phone including the "almighty" iphone does this, it is normal. I have tested a couple icons and they also do this, there is no issue with your phone. Now if the rattle is very loud then something may be wrong. Go to a verizon and start tapping away and see if its comparable

    I never noticed it until I read this thread and tapped my phone. Seems pretty meh to me. How do you know its the ois? My camera works fine, seems a non issue for me. With these devices its always going to be something. The only perfect phones were way back in the day when they only made calls. Never had any issues with those and they were built like Sherman tanks. I guess the more stuff they put in these things the more opportunity for issues. I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

    I am being respectful by, since you're new, letting you know nicely that posting the same thing to multiple threads is frowned-upon. Please stop.

    I don't wish to argue or fight either. I also don't wish to see the same message posted repeatedly all over the forums.

    There was an ad from Nokia regarding this

    That rattle sound?
    That's the sound of CLEAR pictures

    (i'm paraphrasing of course, if someone could show us that'd be great)

    What are you not buying? Do you not know what OIS means? OIS systems work either by employing a floating lens element or sensor to allow the camera to compensate for vibration. Even in the most expensive DSLR on the market OIS/IS/VR lenses make some noise when locking focus. Under certain circumstances you can also hear noises at other times. There is absolutely nothing unusual in the noises. People really should do at least some basic homework on the things they buy. Why drop a lot of money on a phone or camera if you are not going to bother understanding how it works and then assume some conspiracy when the manufacturer tells you something is normal? OIS is not magic. It is based upon digital imaging technology and physical manipulation of a lens element or sensor (usually lens). Physical manipulations make noise when in use and as fixing the element would defeat the purpose of OIS you can occasionally hear thins at other times too. This is perfectly normal in all OIS devices - end of story.

    Thanks for all the comments and inputs guys! Yes I do now think that this is normal but to be completely honest with you guys, I kinda wish it didn't have to make those rattling noises but hey that's life, I agree with u guys that we should just let it be and not lose sleep over it. Anyway thanks for your opinions! It does not seem so bad anymore since its normal for ois and we all have it the same =)

    So I bought my first Lumia 928 last July and the OIS made a very slight (very faint clink) noise if you tapped the phone. However, I got a replacement Lumia 928 in November (for speaker issues) and the OIS rattles even louder. I don't even need to tap the phone. Simply tilting the phone around and texting causes the OIS to rattle. It also makes my phone vibrate super loud and clunky. It bothered me at first because my first Lumia didn't have this issue but I eventually let it go. I'll just wait and see what new phones will be out for WP 8.1 before I upgrade to a new device.The camera works great but I believe the rattle noise varies phone to phone depending on the rigidity of the springs in the OIS. I do understand your concerns though.

    Okay calm down people and keep it civil.

    As far as the rattle goes as far as I know you should hear an audible sound when the OIS is working, as ball bearings are used. Maybe go to Nokia support to double check your device isn't faulty.

    Yeah, that was so sweet. I'm truly touched.

    FYI:

    Community Rules & Guidelines - Mobile Nations Forums

    Specifically:

    Cross Posting - Do not post duplicate questions or topics in multiple forums or threads.
    I'm new here too, but not to forums. It's a common rule, not to mention a common courtesy, to not cross-post the same thing in multiple threads. Plus it should be common sense. All these are not too common lately...

    So that we can get back to the true topic of this thread, this will be my last post on this issue. In the future, I will report violations to the moderators instead of taking the more direct approach.

    Please keep things on track from now on or the thread will be closed. Cross posting is against the rules as stated by the link above. In the future just report the duplicate posts and they will be taken care of.
