    Maybe just my ocd but I'm just now noticing that when i exit the camera or access the gallery directly from camera view, I can hear a sound coming from camera like a click. It doesn't do this every single time. Sometimes it just exits smoothly with no sounds so its leading me to believe that its not normal.

    As I heard, this noise should generated by the phone cam's auto focus. It's mechanics.

    Messed around with it a little bit and switched to a different focus mode and now no clicking sound.

    Yeah, when I would use the barcode scanner and my camera would keep autofocusing, it would click as well.

    its completely normal, the sound is of the lens coming back to its position after focusing any element.. its an automatic mechanism..
