Hello guys,
I am facing an interesting problem with my iPhone 5.
The iPhone's vibration is what I found problematic.
The thing is that when I receive a call the phone rings and vibrates but the vibration is long and constant without the pouses. It is like: "zzzzzzzzzzzzzz" and not like the normal one: "zzz...zzz...zzz".
I tried all the settings but all the vibration preferences are the same. I even restored the device and it is still the same. What do you thing guys? Could it be a hardware problem in the motor?
Thank you.

Start off with a system restore of your phone, back up your data and try a factory reset, if the problem still persists try creating a custom vibration pattern within the phone and see if that helps, it seems to be an issue for a lot of users of your model.

Here is a link to the Iphone 5 Teardown from Ifixit. This might be useful at some-point if you want to replace the vibration motor. Or just head to the 'genius' bar (ha) at your local apple store.

Or better yet you could dump your iPhone 5 and buy an android?

That is unlucky, have a look and see what the genius bar says, advice is free! Well good luck with your approach and i hope it gets sorted. Fire
