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.

Its normal, its just part of the camera.

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.
