You might be wondering why you hear a small rattling noise inside the device when you shake your Samsung Galaxy phone. Don't worry, your phone is just fine. It is not a product defect.

The OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) feature may make a small sound inside of the device

Inside the Galaxy mobile phone, there is a component that functions as an OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) to minimise shaking when taking pictures with the phone. If this small part is shaken while the camera is not operating, it may hit the internal structure and make a slight rattling sound.

The OIS is a function that detects hand shaking and corrects the lens by moving the lens in the opposite direction of the shake. Due to the different OIS sizes for each product, the sound may be relatively louder depending on the product. This is due to the characteristics of the OIS and is not a product defect. The sound does not affect the function and performance of the mobile phone.

What can OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) do?

Samsung's OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) uses a combination of hardware and software processing that's advanced enough to deliver clear and sharp photos even in low light thanks to the big sensor on the Galaxy S and Note series. The multi-camera system offers dual OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) for steady shots whether you're using the wide-angle or the tele camera. So, almost any time of day, your photos will come out as vividly as you remember the moment.

Note: The availability of this feature may vary by device and model.
