    I'm still waiting to see if any tests were done to see if it vibrates louder or the speaker is louder or clearer!

    speaker does sound louder to me.. and vibrate does seem more firm. could be the new phone effect but a text woke me up today and texts never wake me up

    My speakers are definitely louder I sleep by the wall in bed and my phone is usually suffocated by pillows and I still heard it perfectly loud. The vibrate is magnificent I can feel it in my pocket now . I'm definitely glad I got this phone . The speeds are amazing

    Agreed. I can definitely notice the difference in speaker volume as I've had turn down my ringer and app volume from what I was using on previous iPhones.

    Additionally, the vibrate is much stronger.

    Not a very scientific test but using Audiotools my sample of the iPhone 5 was about 3db louder.
    Vibrator is a little stronger but higher pitched. Does rattle the table

    Speakers are much better, home button is a lot sturdier.

    Vibrator, although louder and more pronounced, is just annoying to me. This was the old vibrator that they used in the earlier iPhones and tbh I'm not sure why they went back.

    Comparing my 4S & 5 side by side, both of which are active, I'm happy to report they're identical in these two areas. I don't see a need for them to be different.
