    Every iPhone 4 I've held does this also.

    Non issue.

    Returned first iPhone 4s for excessive rattle.

    2nd one still does it, but only about 1/3 as bad.

    Non issue.

    Any phone with a camera will do this to some extent.

    Non issue.

    Yeah, we're coming up on the 40th year... I think it should be retired.

    Our pleasure. :)

    (Hint: next time don't use "-gate" or "pandemic" to describe a non-issue.)

    I clicked on this thread with the full intent to not read whatever you wrote and just down vote you for the use of the word "Gate".

    I normally don't participate in the voting system, but I felt I could make the exception this time :)

    hint: learn to read sarcasm

    seriously... the subject line was so over-the-top dripping with it... followed by mundane links to other phone owners complaining about their lens elements in the same end times manner.

    then i came out and said "everyone here is restating my point" and people still didn't get it. is this some kind of effect of our shallow, high-speed information landscape that you just scan for key phrases or letter combinations and then automatically type "blah blah blah?"

    KEY WORDS: SARCASM IRONY GATE RATTLE VIIIAGRA IPHONE 5S

    I'll do the first down-vote. weep weep

    It's either...
    1. You fail at the English language, failed to convey 'your sarcasm'. The proof is in the fact that nobody 'caught' onto this. Instead of admitting to it, you claim everyone else is at fault, everyone else, in the world, not yourself. Nice...

    or

    2. The sarcasm excuse is a poor attempt to cover your retarded ass.

    The rattling is from the silver metal band around the camera lens.

    At some point in the future, let's hope that Apple returns to the standards it set for "premier products".

    This would be much better than moving down to the "average" phones, finding that "they do it too" and therefore it's acceptable.

    It simply never ceases to amaze me at how Apple and it's followers will do anything to justify the shortcomings of what has become your "average quality" iPhone.

    But hey... it's only a disposable phone. :)

    Do half the folks declaring "-gates" even know where this comes from?
