Is it just me? I feel like the i5 vibrates a lot louder and stronger. Anyone else?
Yes! The ladies are gonna love it!
Apple changed the style of motor. Instead of a linear-oscillating mechanism it's a more traditional rotating counter-weight.
Are you coming from the 4S?
They switched the motor type back from the linear oscillator in the 4S.
The 4S had a "smoother" vibration, but as a result I often missed texts and calls, so I'm fine with the return to the old version.
The main annoyance is on a desk, the 4S sounds alright but the 5 is a bit annoying.
Edit: had the types backwards.
Yeah im coming from a 4s. I like it, kinda surprised me at first.
The speaker is way louder too, just got an email - BIG NOISE!
Good thing for Do Not Disturb.
I heard it registers on the richter scale
So the 4S had a different motor but the 5 is back the way the 4 was? I've always thought my 4's vibration is far too weak compared to every other cell phone I've had, I miss calls/texts all the time while walking since I just don't feel it. Has me keeping my phone on ringer far more often than I normally would.
I downloaded one of those vibrator app's for my iPhone 4 a couple years ago and put it on my girlfriends hoo ha. It wasn't strong enough...
Will be trying again with the iPhone 5 now...
That's the thing I hated about using the 4 and 4S. You put the phone on vibrate and in your pocket. The next time you go for it, it has three miss calls. The older phones I had, I thought I was getting a heart attack in my leg area when I got calls.
They changed it *back* to how it was in the 4. Same style of motor. And it's likely that because the phone is lighter (less inertia) the vibration is felt more strongly.
Then the vibration motor in the iPhone 5 will be a welcome change as its vibration motor is much louder and more intense than the vibration motor on the iPhone 4 and 4S.
