    Boy oh boy is that rattle atrocious. I've never seen/heard anything like it. I hope the 822 doesn't have this problem or my trophy is getting a lifeline.

    That vibration "rattle" is found in almost every Nokia device sold. I have a Nokia 3110c, and it sort of rattles when it vibrates. I actually kind of like it, it's like it's own ringtone in itself. Get used to it, guys :)

    I downloaded an app called "vibeMassage FREE" to test the vibration. The vibration is fine if prolonged, but if the vibration is short or has a staggered pattern, there is a weird noise at the beginning of the vibration after each vibration.

    The app has several patterns to try out. The one called "Skippy" displays the problem best.

    Perhaps a fix can be to instead of powering up the vibrating motor to full speed in milliseconds, fade in the vibration to a full second or so and make the vibration last another second to avoid the start-up rattle.
    I was thinking the same thing. Tweak the software to spin the motor up gradually over a second vs full power out of the gate. I like the intensity but the initial sound is jarring and a bit frightening. Freaks my cat out. :D

    I've gotten a bit used to it but I might still try to exchange it since it seems that some units don't do it. With all the R&D that went into such a sexy device you'd think they would find a better way for it to vibrate. lol

    That is my only complaint though. :)

    I find it quite weird that your purchase decision on the Lumia 920 rested solely on the vibrate :|

    This is not really a problem in my eyes, just slightly annoying and despite what some say, it not normal for a Nokia. Hopefully a future update can improve things by changing the powering up of the motor as suggested by JGtz.

    I agree. It is just sad that people are complaining about how phone should vibrate. I have lumia 900 and two 920 are on the way.

    I was about to say the same thing, Ive had my 920 since it came out friday, and I kind of like how it sounds, Its different.

    And to the person who said its embaressing, its not even close to as embaressing as most ringtones/notification sounds peope put on there phones....

    and Its not like the phone is cheap or not built well, Its a very solid phone, so dont let the vibration negitivity turn you away from this phone.

    Plus $449 out of contract...This phone is worth way more then that...

    Seriously? It's not that bad...

    I had the iPhone 4s with the "new" or "better" linear motor in it and it actually drove me nuts because I typically keep my phone in my pocket with vibration on, and I couldn't feel it at all when someone tried calling me (9 times out of ten - I'd miss the call and have to call them back).

    The 3GS had the rotational motor - and you could actually feel it.. same with the L920. Yes - it makes a bit of noise - but it also gets your attention - which is kind of the point IMHO.

    The only complaint I would have is a to find a way to adjust the type of vibration (current a short/long pattern) - I'd rather have just a single repeating long pattern (which also might would cut down some on the "rattle").

    My yellow 920 is on order - but in the case of the 900 some were worse than others. In my case it was the camera lens that was rattling on the 900. I exchanged it twice and the same issue on both so I ended up getting a Titan2. When I originally brought it up to the ATT rep, hers DID NOT have a bad rattle. If I could have turned off the capacitive vibrate I would have kept it. It seemed worse in apps (i.e. Evernote) hitting the back button was like having a little gong in my hands!

    Fingers crossed my 920 will not be too bad. It is such an awesome phone, I will probably just deal with it! :D

    Is there a video out there of this rattling? I'm fairly certain mine doesn't rattle, but I'm curious as to what it is.

    it didn't. I didn't even dream about that until I got it in my hand in the store.
    There are a ton of things going for the 920, but if this is considered normal, I'd rather pass.

    Can the 920s vibrate be turned off?

    My 900's vibration was a bit noisier than my 920, but I don't have a problem with either of them. They both sound like every other phone I've used.

    Yes it can be turned off under Sound in settings. (Or I think it is there.)

    Same here in Canada rattle as bad as 900 if not worse.
    So i was at Rogers downtown (Montreal) This morning... The guy was rude but we got to open to other phones that were phone batch 46/2013, mine is 45/2012. They ALLLLL rattled. So obviously I didn't got an exchange.

    I'm waiting on news from Nokia a tech is suppose to call me back.

    So this is normal? The "rattle" sound only at the beginning of a vibration?

    Got a callback by Nokia Tech support.
    I was told to send it in to have it checked.... So it'd be out of phone for 7-10 business days which sucks.
    But I'm really tempted, to see if they could fix that issue...


    If anybody cares to check it out, I've got the address to send it out to. I was told no RMA is needed, neither a case, you just need to have your details included in the box.

    My old E71 has the best vibrate I've seen. N8 was great as well.
