When shaking my Galaxy S6, there is occasionally a slight small noise from within inside of device. Is my device faulty, what is the cause of the sound?

Your device is not faulty – the sound is due the Camera Lens Barrel

required to operate the Auto Focus function.


Your Galaxy S6 supports the Auto Focus feature required for high

quality and high resolution of camera.

The 16 MP Camera module "Lens Unit", Image Sensor, and Auto Focus feature adjusts

focus by moving the Lens Units up and down over the Image Sensor.

This enables Auto Focus speed and accuracy and helps in reducing battery usage.

However Camera module is fitted with a "Stopper" part to

limit lens unit movement within the space for the Camera module. .

When the Lens and Stopper touch, when shaking the Galaxy S6,

a minute noise may occur – however this is normal due to the operation




of the Auto Focus feature of camera.

The sound made may differ slightly by device types and model.
