    I don't know, for some reason if I were to tap the iPhone a little bit, I can feel a sort of springiness to it, almost as if it's the vibration motor being shook. Doesnt happen with an iPhone 4. Any one else with an iPhone 4S feel the same thing?

    I've felt that too... if you sort of tap the back you can hear it/feel it.

    HAHA! I thought it was just me - I upgraded from 3GS which was pretty solid so thought this was just a 'feature' of the 4S (and I assumed the 4, too). There is definitely a boi-oi-oi-oi-ing to it when you tap the back of it - noticed it while tapping on it while in my pocket while listening to music.

    That's exactly how I noticed it too. I thought I had already broke it.

    Good to know I'm not the only one.

    I noticed it when I was setting the phone down on a table.

    It's the linear oscillator (The new vibrator) That makes it feel this way. No worries!

    I think mine does this when i tap the top of half of the back but not the bottom half. What is shaking inside?

    Thanks!

    On a related note, who likes the new vibration of the phone? I think it's a massive improvement on the 3GS. It's like a peaceful buzzing compared to the angry grinding of the old phone.

    Love it. It feels so much nicer than the obnoxious, loud vibrate in my 4.

    I read it had something to do with the lens(es) in the camera.
