    I really wanted the Lumia 920 to be my primary device but god,
    I am this close going back to iOS and just abandoning Windows Phone forever cause of this frustration..
    Go back to iOS if that rattle is such a big deal for you. iPhone5 has had little bit of build quality issues too, but i'm sure by now they have very good build quality. First batches of any new phone usually tend to have some issues.

    I have slight rattle but doesn't bother me. I don't miss my Iphone 5 anymore.

    Oktay, I did as you said and I don't *think* I have the rattle you describe.

    But I honestly don't know if it's an issue, I think it may be the vibration mechanism itself. Perhaps they come from different manufacturers and one simple shakes more than the other. To my knowledge, vibration mechanisms vibrate by moving a weight back and forth through either an offset gear or an electrical switch that moves a metal weight back and forth. So the rattle itself is the vibration mechanism. Seems to me it's doing what it's intended to do.

    If I heard something rattling when I picked my phone up I would be worried, as that might indicate something is loose or broken in the device. But as for thinking a device rattles too much when it vibrates may be a subjective response to the vibration feature of the phone.

    Have had my phone now for 3 weeks and still no rattle. However, I am pretty sure if I want to hear a rattle I will. Same for the clicking screen and dust under the screen, etc, etc, etc.

    My rattle is slowly starting to come back, like the motor is making itself looser everytime it goes off :(

    So this explains the rattle...it's caused by the camera OIS.

    I thought I didn't have the rattle, until I dropped my phone on the carpet a few minutes ago. Shook my phone and I can hear it now. Dang it.

    I still don't understand how so many people didn't realize it was the camera. OIS was a selling point for me, and was marketed as such by Nokia. It's on springs!! Excessive force means bottoming out. Simple. I never intentionally rattle my phone anyway so I never hear it.

    I find the Lumia vibration so low and subtle that I initially thought there might have been a fault with it. But coming from an old HTC Desire that shook the entire building when a message arrived, this is indeed very welcome. The very different vibration sound also requires me to get used to listening for it.

    My only complaint is that vibration cannot be turned off at the volume rocker quick setting. But this is bound to be changed in a future update. Would be absurd to leave it like this with only two settings. But anyway, this is a different subject.

    Personally, I think the "properly" working vibration motor still sounds bad... it still sounds like a rattle-ish. But I guess the issue many are seeing is an extreme rattle, every phone I've seen that has it also has the "click" issue so one wonders if its just a batch that weren't fitted properly to the case.

    I ordered my cyan 920 on launch day and don't have the issue.

    Here's a link to a post where I included a video of two phones I had.

    My third Lumia 920 finally gets rid of the rattle. But unfortunately there is some light leak, though I can live with it.

    I just look the above video ... well, I prefer rattle voice, but it could be stronger vibration ... :)

    Stupid iPhone4 camera/sound record is pretty bad so I don't know that my video will help any.

    But I notice a LITTLE when I put it on highest intensity I guess, but it's nothing that bothers me, especially since I don't notice anything during a normal ring/text tone.
