Irene2_ASUSI managed to make a recording. My auto lock is set to 30 seconds, and you can hear the tick after about 25 seconds, or just before the screen is about to dim before turning off. I was able to replicate this every time when the screen wants to turn off. Also it happens in every app.
I have not been able to reproduce this, can you clarify if is it a physical sound or if it's coming from the speakers?
Would be possible for any of you to add here a video with sound of this issue you are experiencing?
jakislogin2The part when you can hear it is at about 25 seconds. It is very quiet.
I can't hear anything on that video TBH. Do you have smart screen enabled? If yes, disable it and check if the sound is still there.
jakislogin2Yes, it is the same noise!!! This is the way to replicate it.
Smart screen is supposed to keep the screen on while you are looking at the phone. It seems Asus is using front camera to do so. You can test that by yourself by opening the camera app and switching to the front and to the main camera back and forth.
