    Mine rattles loudly as well when vibrating. Does anyone have a 920 that doesn't rattle? Is there any point in trying to get an exchange?

    Hoping my yellow 920 does not have the rattle - it was the reason I did not keep the 900 I had at launch.

    The rattle is probably the autofocus. Same thing happens on iPhone.

    So maybe its just subjective if it rattles or not. Which device did you come from?

    Could someone make a youtube video of the rattling vibration?

    Even my past Nokias didn't rattle like this. My wife laughed at it when she noticed it in a quiet room.

    don't know about the first vid, theres clearly something wrong there, but the iPhone5 sounds just like i would expect it. Its not the actual sound of the vibration motor, that concerns me.

    It sounds like the motor itself was loose inside the phone, rattling in whatever confined space it inhabites.

    I love how people are trying to justify this, the 900s proved this is not normal, it isn't the lens, it isn't the sim door, its something loose. Whether its detrimental to the phones life, I'm not sure. But it definitely isn't normal

    Can you make a video of it?

    I'm not trying to justify it, I just want to find out what it sounds like.

    Unfortunately no. I only sport a feature phone made out of wood and stone, I doubt you'd be able to discern anything from a video I'd shoot with it

    I don't think I have anything that'll record it crisp enough. There are videos in the 900 section, just go back to April.

    Here is my video of it from a phone call. The sound doesn't really show how loud it is in a quiet room. My old Samsung Focus, which I shot the video with, is much quieter on vibrate but I know that comparison isn't the point of this.

    that's exactly it. I guess it's sound varies per device, but this here is pretty close to what I mean. If this is considered normal, I will not buy the phone regardless of how in love I am with it otherwise

    it sounds like the vibration motor is eating the phone from the inside, are you really defending this as being normal or unworthy of attention?

    Seriously guys!? Being picky about how the thing sounds while vibrating!?

    If it turns out to be a technical problem which affects other parts of the phone somehow (like screen gaps, or OIS ****up, whatever...) I am pretty sure Nokia will fix and replace the affected phones.

    Mine has exactly the same noise, it's not smooth, but I don't really care if it's smooth or not as long as it keeps vibrating as it's designed to.

    Don't be a dbag. I'm annoyed with the vibration, yes. But I absolutely love this phone. The display, the speed, the camera, etc. I'll live with it, but it's still annoying as **** and if you don't want to read about it, move on and quit replying with useless posts. Kthx.
