We have a 6 and 6+ and when we first heard the vibrator rumble, we knew it sounded off. It makes a buzz noise and the vibration is noticeably weaker.

My question is, is mine defective? From a quick google, it seems to vary between 6+'s and some posters are saying that a replacement solved the problem.

The fact that no one here cares about silent mode tells me mine is a rare case but I want to be certain that it is a problem.

You might be lucky, the vibration is incredibly strong (could me quieter) in the iPhone 6, maybe you got lucky.

You and I both. I'm gonna try and get it replaced on Tuesday. It has an ugly loud buzz but with a very faint vibrate throughout the phone. I can hear it more than vibrate which defeats the purpose of silent mode in my mind.

Make sure you have it turned on in Sounds under settings, it is off by default :)
