    Default Spring feeling when you tap the Galaxy S5?

    Hello all!

    Loving the phone in general but I get this spring feeling when I tap the phone. Mainly when I tap the back of the phone. It feels like there is a spring inside has gives the phone a slight vibration when I do it. Its audible if you put your ear to it.

    Research on google says the S4 did this as well just wondering if it is a defect. Do you guys and gals get this? It also effects haptic feedback if I turn it up all the way. Spring!!!

    I thought the same thing when I tested the Sprint store model. You can feel the vibration on the back in the middle.

    There is a rubbery material on the inside of the back cover. That is what makes it waterproof and that is what give the "springy" feeling.

    My S4 doesn't do it, but my Note 2 did.

    I think im going to go to a couple stores tomorrow and test out the demo units. I think I may be just use to the htc deeper haptic feedback. If everyone experiences the "spring effect" I dont think I would worry about it.

    This phone is lightning fast though!

    This happened on my note 3 and s4 and s5. It's the plastic making you feel the vibration throughout the phone. Not a big deal

    My S4 has it. I'm sure it has something to do with the protection of the main board against drops
