    I have noticed on my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 after I restart it and it comes to the pattern unlock screen there is a clicking sound.
    This is the second time it's happened.

    I can't say I've heard this sound on the main home screen but its been so far in between the incidents that I can't be certain.

    Any ideas on what may be causing this?

    I'm assuming that this sound is coming from the speaker and not the vibrator motor or anything like that, correct?

    Can you cause it to happen? Since Samsung sends you little reminders to restart your device every 7 days does it happen every time you restart the device? Can you cause this to happen by restarting the device two or three times back to back?

    When you say restart, do you mean that you are using the "restart" option or does it also happen when you power the device off and back on? Do you ever power the device off and then turn it back on, not using the restart option?

    I have a feeling that it is like an unfinished clip from a video or a music track and you're just getting a blip when the device powers up, but I'm not sure. To test this close all apps from your multi-tasking page by selecting "close all" at the bottom. Then power the device off, not restart, and then back on again. Let us know if you get the sound. Then I would like you to try the same thing, closing all of the apps, and trying to restart the device with the restart method.

    No. Nothing is coming from the camera. I am not pressing anything after taping on the restart button on my screen to restart the phone.

    The sound appears to be coming from the bottom speakers of the phone.
    I cannot force it to happen.
    It doesn't happen on every restart.
    Yes using the restart option on the phone. I press and hold down the power button and press restart.

    I have not seen or heard it happen when shutting down the phone. I don't usually use the shut down feature if I plan on using my phone...

    I tend to make sure all my apps are closed when restarting if not then I make sure nothing is playing when I restart.

    Is there anything near the phone that might be causing RF interference?

    I agree with testing it in Safe Mode. If it never clicks in Safe Mode, then some app you installed is probably generating the sound. The tedious part would be narrowing things down -- you'd have to uninstall apps one by one until the click finally disappeared to figure out which app was responsible.

    What about using Nice Catch from Good Lock to check if it is a notification?

    Hi @WatchMeAsIExplode, took a moment to move you to the Note 9 subforum, and give you ownership of this thread by editing the Original Post (OP) which gives you count credit for it. Sorry you're having an issue, especially with the Note 9, my current "ride" too.

    I don't have a lot of apps installed.

    Chrome, Firefox, Hangouts, Gmail, Twitter, Starbucks.
    Maybe one or two of those is preinstalled.

    Sometimes just going in and out of safe mode fixes little glitches.
