    Is it just my phone, or do your guy's phones vibrate super loud so everyone in the whole room can hear it?

    Big phone, big vibration......Seriously, I don't know. Hopefully, members who have purchased the iPhone 6 Plus will give their opinions soon. In the meantime, enjoy your day...

    It is literally the only complaint I have with the phone so far. The vibration is insanely loud and it also sounds "cheap" IMO. But no I feel the same also. I went to the Apple store and played swith the 6 and the vibration wasnt like that at all.

    I'm guessing it may also have something to do with the thickness of the device! Maybe because it's thinner it feels stronger and is louder?

    I noticed my 6 plus feel stronger/louder then my 5S.

    Idk about stronger but I've noticed louder. If it is stronger than good. I always thought the iPhone needed a stronger vibrate. As far as cheap, it does kind of sound that way but I'm sure that's just the way it sounds being in larger casing, and keep in mind as well that since the vibrate is louder your going to hear it better (obviously). Who's to say the previous iPhones didn't make the same cheap sound, just that it wasn't loud enough for us to hear it?

    Haha i also really thought I'm the only one, but the vibration is the only thing I hate about the 6+

    That's why I need a jailbreak to quickly turn vibration on/off

    Until the jailbreak I'm using "Launcher" and open the Settings page directly to turn it on/off

    Maybe the vibration is less annoying if the vibration duration is shorter → jailbreak tweak

    Funny that you mention that. I listened to Gruber's podcast with Rene Ritchie and he made the point about it sounding loud. It does sound more loud in a quiet room.

    The 6 also has a strong vibration which is great because the iPhone has always been very dull. I can actually feel it for the first time since I can remember.

    I was going to suggest that, custom vibration to tone it down some.
    It is super loud on my 6+ as well.

    1. Just open the Launcher app
    2. Tap on "Add new" and add an app launcher
    3. Select "Settings"
    4. There you have a long list of sub-pages of the settings app, there select "Preferences ->Sounds"
    5. Optional you can add some fancy name like "Vibration "

    I know that feel That's why I turn it of when I'm in libraries, studying etc.

    I need a jailbreak to put a vibration toggle into the control center, it's cool to have a launcher to get directly to vibration settings, but toggle it on/off from CC would be nicer

    My vibration is very loud on the plus but I cannot feel it at all it feel like the size cancels out the vibration. I can feel it in the middle of the phone but not at all at the edges

    Definitely noticeable depending on the surface the phone is on. I created some custom ones to see if any particular patterns might work.

    I ended up just putting the whole phone on silent and then letting my Pebble vibrate.

    I keep mine on a microfiber towel that I have at my desk, seems to help. It is definitely a stronger vibration, which is great when its in your pocket. The previous iPhones were weak and I would miss if often times.
