    I noticed since the day I got it there was something loose inside especially if you tap on the back near camera. But with time it has gotten worse and louder, now when I even place it on something you can hear it..

    It's not a thumping sound like a battery but something small


    Is this normal happening with wear?

    Cheers

    It is normal. It is just the auto-focus camera. The Nexus 4 does it, along with many other smartphones.

    Probably because the people over at the China factory forgot to screw something tightly enough, happens all the time in the 20hrs working sweatshop conditions.

    Little known fact, iPhones have gremlins in them.

    Don't get them wet

    Don't feed (charge) them after midnight

    And for the love of god, keep one of these around in case of emergency.
