    I've posted already about this but need confirmation as Motorola haven't sorted it.

    Please can a couple of Moto Z Play owners take their phones somewhere quiet and just turn on the rear camera (start the camera app). Then let me know if the camera itself makes a faint sound only when switched on.

    This would be a massive help to me!

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks Bosgarage. Anyone else want to check? I get a faint hissing sound whenever the camera is on.

    I can hear a sound. Seems like a white sound from radio. It appears only when the camera app is launched.

    I heard something that sounds like a shutter opening. I did not hear a hissing sound. I can only hear it when my ear is right next to my phone.

    Sounds like some people have it and some don't. My phone also makes a faint click when I start the camera app. I've sent it back for the second time now and asked for a refund.

    So I got a refund and ordered a new Z Play. It also makes the same sounds! I'm just going to assume it's harmless. At least I got another free Soundboost Mod 😀
