    i can hear it more when i shake it harder, but even a gentle back and forth motion generates noise.

    if i had to live with it that wouldn't be a problem as it's very subtle and practically unnoticeable unless you're looking for it. but it would be nice to know exactly what it is...
    damn i wish i didn't know about it because now my ears are going to be looking for it lol

    I don't have to shake it to hear it sometimes. If I sit it down on its back it rattles and when walking with the phone in a loose pocket it rattles with my steps. Not exactly sure but it seems to be getting worse.

    mine does it when i set it down on any surface, save my bed. AND when i use the haptic feedback..the first time i ever used haptic feedback...because the NEXUS 4 got it just perfect...except the rattle. but it's the rattle that happens when sitting it down that makes me cringe!

    I think you're right about it getting worse, mine is too...to the point I don't want to show it to my friends! boo! anyone know what it is? I'm not above opening it up and taping stuff down!

    Both the wife and I have it if we shake super hard a certain way. We could care less. :-)

    I'm pretty certain it's the power button that rattles as pointed out by someone earlier. If I tap my finger on the back top left corner of the phone it rattles noticeably. If I do the same thing but hold down the power button slightly, it doesn't happen.

    Edit: never mind... It still happens if I tap harder. Does seem to be coming from the camera area.

    yep it does, I held both the volume and power buttons but it didn't change a thing

    So I decided to call Google to inquire about getting a replacement. While I could definitely live with the rattle I'd rather have a device that doesn't rattle.

    Spoke with a nice customer service rep who said this is a known issue, although she didn't know what causes the rattle.

    She is sending me a replacement which should arrive in a couple days; apparently they keep a separate stock for replacement.

    Bravo Google customer support!

    Kind of funny to see this kind of thread on Android forums. I thought iPhone users were paranoid

    It has nothing to do with buttons, loose parts etc.. It's a camera. and it will not be fixed, as it is not an issue to begin with. Just stop shaking and tapping your phones )

    just got an email that my replacement has been shipped out of Dublin, so less than 24 hour turnaround after calling this in to Google customer service.

    Can you wait to return your first device until you have received the replacement? I also have this issue, but I'm sort of in a tough situation as I bough the device through JetCarrier. Google shipped it to them and they shipped it to me. If I were to return it I would only do it if I can get Google to send it directly to me in Norway. Anyone have any experience with this kind of issue?

    Also, which e-mail adress can I use to contact them?

    When you say Dublin, do you mean Dublin, Ireland? Very interesting given that we (in Dublin, Ireland) can't purchase it from the Play Store

    FOUND WHERE THIS SOUND COMES FROM!

    I read on another post and said:
    "Its the pin in the sim card tray! Hold the sim card release pin down in the hole and shake! No noise! Stop over think everything nothing wrong with the camera"

    I JUST PLUGGED THE PIN IN THE SIM CARD TRAY!! and the noise is gone when I shake the phone with the pin inside there so

    Nothing to worry about warranties since its a metallic noise that can not be deleted, the N4 that don't has the noise it's because maybe the compartment of the pin it's a bit more adjusted so it doesn't vibrate when you shake it!
