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 about the problem and has included a software action to reset the lens on reboot (but it doesn't help to stop the rattle). Now my phone is also heating every single day for normal tasks which are very low intensity.

        My phone has started heating up a lot during the summer. At one point it was so hot that it was difficult to touch the phone and I had to turn it off since I was worried it might get damaged.

          I'm surprised that there are many people complain about the camera rattling issue because I got the same problem. Whenever the rattling issue happens, the camera cannot focus on the object, it keeps blurry.
          Actually, any other things in this phone still work well, but I had to switch to a new phone because of this rattling camera problem.

            This phone is best as I used it Since 2018 and still using it. The camera Rattling issue started now but it's still good. The camera rattle issue also happen while using any other app with no camera required.

              Samsung has just released an Android 10 stability software update on 30 August 2023 (Yes you read that right). The description of the update only states "Overall stability has been improved" and the security patch level is June 2022. The update size is 120 MB.

              Any idea what this is about? Hope nothing breaks after the update? Did you guys try it out?

                PSP, 20 Oct 2022Read that everyone is having the camera rattling issue. Eve... moreIn my case the camera rattles while the camera app is open for taking a picture. At that time the photo is blurry and out of focus because of the rattling. The rattling doesn't stop until I somehow try to get the phone to switch to the other rear camera.

                I'm surprises that Samsung didn't even bother to acknowledge this issue or make any attempts to fix it. For my next phone, I'm considering OnePlus Nord 3.

                  Read that everyone is having the camera rattling issue. Even my phone's camera rattles doesn't seem like its an issue which few people face . Looks like a feature provided which looks and feels like an issue😝

It might not be worth getting it repaired by them as it could rattle again after replacement.

                          Saleha, 15 Mar 2022Can't believe everyone has the camera rattling issue. ... moreSince this is not a flagship Samsung isn't bothering to recall or address the camera rattling problem. As far as I have heard everyone having this phone has faced the camera rattle issue. It even rattles during phone boot up! Feel cheated
