    Trying to find out if this vibration noise is normal or not on the N6:

    I know it's a strong/buzzy vibrator but particularly the clicking is what seems like it's not right.

    An easy way I found to test this is to grab this app:

    And then in the Auto tab, enter: 30.30.30 and check the "Repeat Pattern" check box, then tap "Run pattern...". For me, it does sound very much like the sound clip above - kind of a metallic click. Is this just "normal" for the N6? Should I RMA? Kind of sounds like something hallow and metallic rattling around inside something.

    Can't listen to that at the moment but mine sound very odd, like a loose rattle type buzz. I actually disabled all the vibration functions because I didn't like it.

    Regardless, my Nex6 is gone now. :(

    Yep, that's it. If it's "normal" I'll be really disappointed.

    30 milliseconds is an awfully short time to test. I don't think it even has enough time to get to full vibration. Mine does a similar rattle sound at 30.30.30. Try 300.300.300 and you should get a solid vibration. Nothing wrong with it.

    It absolutely is if you are mimicking typing quickly on the keyboard! That's why I picked it. Obviously longer vibration periods will be louder and more forcefully and mask the clicking, but even then I can hear it.

    After hearing the sample, yours is indeed different than mine in tone and texture. My Nexus 6 vibration is louder, at a different pitch and is less irregular than the sound of yours. But not being right there it's hard to say how the recording might effect how it sounds to me.

    Thanks, I guess I will find out Monday when my RMA arrives. :)

    Indeed, the vibration motor was defective on the first device. Unfortunately, my RMA device had 1/2 the screen pink and 1/2 the screen yellow. The non-uniformity looked really bad on whites or grays and was easily noticeable in splash screens and on gray-ish launcher backgrounds. I RMA'd that one, and the 3rd one is the same as the 2nd (motor OK, pink tint in ~1/3 of the screen this time in the upper left and really pink). I am giving up for now. I'll check back in January when hopefully they've improved the QC on their AMOLED panels.
