Lens Cover

It's the crystal camera lens cover. I placed my finger on the crystal cover and no more rattle. It's part of the design.

If it is part of the design how come others don't rattle? I mean there is no rattle with my phone.

Don't shake it. Can't imagine any phone function that requires shaking.

I took my phone into the store this afternoon and it ended up being a loose battery. After a quick visit into the back room, the iPhone came back with the battery reseated into the adhesive. No more thud and I'm a happy camper again!

This is not about some rattling. Its about the variance, and the extent to which some are. Thats all.

Well i didnt think it was a big deal and the Genius that helped me let many of her co-workers listen to it too and they heard it over the loudness of the store
She went to the back to tighten the vibration motor or something and came back out with a replacement. She was like "omg it's not supposed to do that" i was like "oh...." lol. I took a nice long look at the replacement with my glasses on while everyone looked on amused but i didnt want ANY scuffs or blemishes. So yeah im back to square one i appreciate them being on it. One of the reasons why im an Apple fan girl

My phone came with 3 medium-sized dents (2 on the front chamfered edge and 1 on the rear chamfered edge). I went and got it swapped out for one that doesn't have any dents or scratches.

Unfortunately, the sleep/power button is a bit looser and does rattle when I shake the phone. It doesn't bother me, so I'm not going to try to swap it now.

Yeh as posted already it's just the power button. Put pressure on it and shake the rattle noise will not be there.

This is false. That is a different rattle.

Yea... We're talking about the camera lens rattle. A more marble-like sound if you will

It really isn't an issue. It's the camera optics inside the phone that's rattling. For auto focus and such...

I've replicated that on approximately 50 phones so far. I'm not concerned.

On every iPhone 5 I've held, this has been apparent. When you tap the back hard, you can feel something in there.

I've held 7. Mine, my replacement, my mother's, and 4 at the Apple store - looking for scuffgate similar to the one that was on mine.
