    Hello all

    I have had my s7 edge for going on two weeks now, and I noticed this morning a rattling noise when i shake it.

    I did a search and didnt see anyone talking about it, but i did see where a guy posted a quick video on YouTube with the rattling issue. He had a silver edge, i have the silver one as well.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? If not I may return it for a new one, which will be a hassle because I would have to order and install a new skinomi skin.

    Thanks

    This could be the camera.

    Try turning the camera On and then see if you can still hear it.

    Other possibilities are the buttons rattling.

    Oh wow, I turned the camera on and it's not really doing it anymore.

    How is turning on the camera preventing that?

    It's the workings of the camera.

    It's the same on the iPhones.

    Once the camera is activated it focuses and loses the rattle.

    Don't worry about it

    It still shoudn't be rattling though. I had my friend check hers and its not making that noise. But i'll just keep an eye on performance because i dont want to have to go change it out.

    Mine rattles with the camera off too. Never noticed it until I read this post though.
