    How high is your volume? Can you hear it without it being near your ear?

    You can not hear it away from your ear. I can hear it during conversations on the phone any day. It annoys the s.... out of me.

    It is an echo back number. It rings once or twice then you talk and it echos back your voice. Beware though that any brushing or blowing on the mic winds up sounding like a buzz so if you think you have a buzz noise make sure you aren't blowing or brushing the mic. I did and I thought it was a buzz but I realized I had blown in the mic a bit.

    Based on what it sounded like, I don't think I have the buzz sound.

    Is the buzz sound very common with the nexus 4? It seems like it isn't extremely common and a lot more people don't have it than do like it was a small defective batch.
    i can hear mine if the call volume is loud.

    now that we are "aware" its psychologically going to bother us. mine has it and its not a deal breaker, but i still asked for a replacement nonetheless. i figured, "why not try to get one that doesnt have it at all"

    Buzzing is the wrong adjective...it simply sounds like a busted tweeter speaker. You can test it over wifi on Talkatone without having to install the SIM. Have the other person talk loud and increase volume on the device 75%. I ordered a replacement and the issue was non-existent on it. Some devices have it, others don't. Bottom line. Of course LG and Google won't come out and state something...

    Both of my N4s have the rattle and the buzz. Buzz is very faint when the screen is on. Don't hear it during calls. No biggie, not sending it back.

    You can only hear the buzz when you ear is extremely close to the earpiece. Mine doesn't rattle though. Anyway, not a deal breaker for me.
