Any suggestions on which phone to upgrade from A8 Star?

It happens for almost all devices - its a known issue. Even after replacement the camera rattle continues. Try to reboot your phone and keep the camera near your ear, you will hear the camera lens being moved - indicating that Samsung knows very well...

I had the same problems. Just change camera part to the new one or buy stolen goods with best price. Cmiiw
