Is the vibration strong though? or just loud?
I personally find my Nexus 4 to have too weak of a vibrate
I couldn't agree more. But it seems to be phone to phone and brand to brand specific. (though I haven't used the N5 yet) My old Nexus One (and most HTC phones) in my experience have really strong vibrate functions. My Nexus S was pretty weak, but the Galaxy Nexus I had for a short time was really strong. Unfortunately my Nexus 4 like you said has been really weak which is super annoying. Anyway Hopefully the Nexus 5 will be stronger.
it's not the a matter of strength -- the vibration is effective. but it's like you can hear interchangeable pieces rattling around. it seems like a defect.
I guess if it seems like there is something rattling around in there maybe there is. Send it back to Google, you really only have two weeks I think to do that so better make sure you do rather than get stuck with a broken device.
I agree. Perhaps return it if it sounds like a defect. Its a shame because there were some quality issues on the nexus 4 as well when it first launched
There seems to always be quality control issues with LG devices. That's why I decided against the 4 when I last upgraded. :/
Yeah, it seems like almost every Samsung device ends up having one major issue or another. It used to be problems with radios, now the screens beneath the glass are fragile, and software issues have been a plague. Don't get me started on ASUS. Come to think of it, there's not a single manufacturer that can consistently make problem-free hardware. Just another reason my motto for technology is, "Everything sucks and nothing works." ;)
I've noticed with each new phone the vibrate pulse has been getting more and more aggressive. My eris was minimal, Inc 2 was fine, and my S3 was super loud.
My Nexus 5 had a very normal, healthy-sounding deep rumble for the first several days I owned it, then all of a sudden just now while typing a text, it got much louder and sounded like the motor became loose in some way. It's very disconcerting. I guess I could turn off the vibrate feedback but shouldn't have to.
Too bad, this phone is awesome otherwise.
