I noticed today that if I shake my phone it rattles like there is something loose. It works just fine, but it doesn't sound so good.

Sounds like the battery didn't get glued to the main board. I would exchange it.

I opened this to give a smart ass comment like stop shaking it. But ya. That’s not normal haha
My x makes a small clicking sound but seems like a normal thing

Nope, no good. Return it and get a replacement.

The only thing that should physically make noise is the camera shutter, and that’s only minimal, and only if you tap it.

I’m Surprised how audible that is when shaking it in on camera, but that definitely qualifies for a return without question. For the record, there was a few other members who experienced the same issue in a exact same thread started previously.
