    I just noticed that, when I put my iPhone 5 down on a surface or gently tap near the top right of the phone, near the camera lens, I can hear something rattling, as if the power button was loose. However, the button doesn't feel loose to me... Is this something that other users have experienced? I am planning on taking it to the Apple store for a replacement, but wasn't sure if I was alone in this issue.

    It's the camera lens. Perfectly normal.

    Go to the apple store and test the display models. They all have the rattle as well.

    I can vouch for this as well. I tried all the display models and it had the same rattle

    I was worried at first too, but then I checked my old 4 and 4S, they both had the same rattle as well. I guess I just never bothered to check it.
