Default Z ultra loud vibrate

Hi Guys,

I noticed today that my Z ultra vibrate is loud. I actually hear something inside the phone like a fly or piece of paper or small object was stucked.

It's very annoying and sounds like the vibratory is broken or something so I temporary disable any hectic feedback and notifications (vibrate)

Is anybody who experience this issue and was able to fix?

Thanks

I don't know if you're actually hearing what you think you are - or you just aren't used to the vibration on the Z Ultra.

The Ultra's vibrator is the loudest I've ever heard on a phone.
Nokia 8250 -> Nokia 7250i -> Sony Ericsson T610 -> Nokia 7610 -> Nokia N95 8GB -> Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 -> Sony Xperia Z Ultra


Alienware 18 with 2.80Ghz Intel i7 4900MQ -> Up to 4.0 Ghz with TurboBoost, TWO Nvidia GeForce GTX 770m's with 3GB DDR5 RAM each, 16GB DDR3 RAM

The noise of the vibrate is louder than it vibrates the phone. I am not sure if the vibrates get worst as I disable the vibrate when I got the phone. Now I want to use it and hearing the weird noise inside the phone when it vibrates.

Wondering if this is defective or its normal.. Noise is like something is loose inside the phone.

Granted, the Ultra's vibrator is really loud, but I can't say that I've heard any rattling noises inside it. It's really really hard to help you when all we get is a forum post without some audio You should upload a YouTube video.

Thanks, LordManhattan, blueether, and hassanmahmood.

I record the vibrate noise on the same phone as I do not have any digital camera or phone that I can use to record the noise at the moment.

Note that the actual sound is a bit lesser than you can hear on the recording. But it sound like it.

first 10 Secs = vibrate with sound when I press and hold the icon for a sec.
18 secs = is the vibrate with sound on Diagnostic section (Settings > About Phone > Diagnostic > Test Device > Vibration) - This sounds like electric shaver.

Here's the like where you can download the recording.

I hope the sound file helps


Thanks.

I had the same problem, and it turned out I had the back glass up by half a millimeter. It caused the vibration to make more noise than normal.
Give this a try: hold tight the lower left side of your Ultra and redo the test.
Does it sound better? Like, muffled? If it does, it definitely is the back cover lifting, another case of bad gluing.
If it doesn't, I don't know how to help you...
