Hello, I just received my galaxy s10 plus today and whenever i want open an app like camera, snapchat, instagram story and also face ID i hear like a clicking noise like a mechanic noise that i really dont like. It even happens when I switch from the front to the rear camera or when I change between the different modes. I don't know if it's a problem that comes from my phone or if it's normal. Please help me.

I am having the exact same issue with the s10+ maybe I'm really particular but it makes the phone sound cheap and cheesy. I cant stand it. The thing that concerns me is that it went away for some time today. I just got the phone, so obviously I havent had much time to experiment with this issue but it happens as soon as I open up the snapchat app. Also when I toggle back and forth from front to back cameras in the general camera app. Samsung...do you have any input on this issue? I am going to AT&T tomorrow to see if the display models have the same sound.

This happens with our demo devices and also mine. It is annoying but I guess it's something I am going to have to get used to.

I hear the noise when I'm switching from the back to the front camera. It's not loud and I only hear it when I'm listening for it.

Yeah same here. I have an s10 and I heard the click and was just making sure it was normal. It actually sounds cool in my opinion and I can only hear it when it's quiet and I'm prepared for it.

My new S10+ does it too.  I thought maybe it was a defect but glad to know its normal.

Yeah my S10 also makes such mechanical sound and has anyone observed a small blink near the front camera when you are calling someone?

A small blink near the front camera is the proximity sensor working. I actually think it's kind of cool.

It's more of an electronic zap noise that is audible when the screen first turns on, I don't think it's associated with the camera.
