    The vibrate on my 6 is almost non existent. I can feel it if I'm sitting and its on my leg but not even on a table right next to me. Anyone else have a weak vibrate? I know the 5 had a strong and even loud. Just wondering. I may have to try a different pattern. I love how it doesn't rattle though like the 5 did.

    I find the vibrate in the Plus louder than any previous iPhone vibrate but not very noticeable feel-wise. So, yeah, I guess I agree with this. It's less of a vibrate function and more of a buzzing sound, which is kind of the opposite of what it's supposed to do.

    I have a 6 and don't feel it unless it's right on my leg. And can't hear it on table. Just very soft.

    I do not usxe vibrate very often but when I did it was much softer than previous iPhones I have owned.

    I can't speak for the 6 as I don't have one but the Plus seems plenty loud, which is actually kind of problematic. I wish it was quieter but more vibrational so I could feel it more readily. Sounds like the same deal more or less on the 6. It vibrates, but it doesn't seem to shake the chasis much.

    I agree. It doesn't shake it much.

    My iP6 vibrates loud enough with the ringer OFF to wake me up, and the damn thing is under a pillow. I find that to be problematic - my sister called very early this morning. Grrrr.

    I've noticed this on my 6 too. A little disappointed because it was perfect on my 5s and I kind of depend on getting my texts in a timely manner while being at work and not being able to have the ringer on.

    Not enough to push me into going back but an issue nonetheless.

    My iPhone 6 Plus vibrate is so loud I'm forced to turn it off at work because all the constant loud buzzing is annoying and I'm sure bugs other people in my office. It's annoying to me because I must have my phone on silent, and the buzzing is so loud it defeats the purpose of the vibrate, so then I'm stuck checking my phone for notifications all day.

    The actual sensation of the buzz is fine to me and I have no problem noticing it in when it's in my pocket though.

    Seems like some get loud hard vibrates and others get the opposite. I guess it just depends on what your needs. My phone seems to be perfect otherwise so I'm just going to try other patterns and see if that will help.

    I'm getting complaints about the intense vibration of my 6+ If I leave it on my desk when I return people say it's too loud.

    Wow you'd think they'd use the same vibration motor in both.

    Hey man, whatever floats your boat. If you are into that though, you should get a device that is actually meant for that purpose. An iPhone is unsanitary and could cause damage. Here is a device that I recommend.
