Xperia Z3 Compact Random Vibration Intensity



I received my phone in August 2015 and for the past few months the vibration intensity has been very random.  Mostly, it's quite a high intensity (much higher than my old Z3C which I replaced), to the extent that I've turned it off because it is so loud and extremely irritating; however, it randomly goes down to a normal level.


I've tried force rebooting it etc., but was wondering if this is a hardware or software problem?


I'm not keen on sending it off to Sony as I don't want to end up paying for my phone to be returned if this isn't covered under the warranty.


Any suggestions would be very welcome.


Thanks in advance,
