Oh well, I really love the phone and it does all I want on a phone plus more. However this issue really annoyed me.

Is there somebody who solves the issue? I know I should have Sony service center check the phone but I want to knowing somebody bring their unit to Sony center and able to fix it and what might have cause the issue and what parts has been replaced? I want to know first so I don't waste my time going there leave my phone and they won't be able to fix

Thanks guys again for Sharing your thoughts

If it gets better, you may have a slightly misplaced vibration motor.
If you look close enough, do you see the back glass up even by a thin hair?

I sent mine back to repair, it had the back lifted a little bit (which caused the vibrating excessive noise), but I also hard bricked, and they gave me a new one due to "lack of experience on the device, Sony gave us the direct order of replacing the units, we're not able to repair them yet".
But it was like a month after the release the may repair yours... just be sure to go for an official Sony repair center, if you don't wanna end up with a badly glued panel, leading to a dead phone after exposing it to water.

Hi closely look at the back glass for about 2 to 3 minutes and I don't see any glass misalignment.

I might bring the unit to official Sony service center, problem is I do not have any spare phone to use haha.
