    Default loose piece inside the phone?

    Hi,
    since recently, wen the phone is on my ear, and i walk, i can hear a piece rattling inside at each step i make.
    it's not the buttons cause i tried holding them with my fingers and the noise is still there, could it be the camera autofocus like it is on some phones (i had the same issue with my N4 but didn't hear it when walking).

    am i the only one?

    My power button is loose and rattles, it's not a major issue for me but it's something that shouldn't be allowed to happen.

    i don't think it's one of my buttons as i maintain them pressed and it still rattles.
    i think more of the autofocus

    The rattle sound you are hearing is the release pin for the sim card tray. If you hold the sim release tool in the pin hole slot and shake the phone you will not hear a rattle. You have nothing to worry about. My Nexus 4 did it as well as my Nexus 5.

    My phone started rattling last week after owning it for 3 weeks. I called them and they are sending me a replacement. It will be a pain to set up the new phone but it shouldn't rattle after 3 weeks.

    Hold your phone up to your ear and shake it I think it's something to do with the camera stabilisation

    It's not an issue, its a feature. If you don't want it to rattle then it will not have the ability to focus. You don't have to worry about it so much longer, soon camera will have liquid lenses.

    I'd think if there were a loose piece inside the phone, there'd be more problems than a rattle.

    I suspect one reason we get nexus so cheap is no quality control after manufacture and assembly
