Xperia Z3+ camera button and power button rattle noise

I've noticed the buttons on the phone rattle slightly when phone is shaken is this normal for them to be kind of loose?

Re: Xperia Z3+ camera button and power button rattle noise

Yes, they do rattle a bit if you 'flick' them with your finger, and you can just about hear them rattling if you tap the phone. It's one of the first things I noticed after 'upgrading' from my Z1 to a Z3+

 

I definately preferred the Z1's buttons, although at least on the Z3+ the photo button is easier to press.

 

Overall though, it's not a problem.

@92 - I have just tested a couple of units here and can not replicate this. With this being the case it would be worth speaking with your local Xperia Care team.

Thanks for your reply. Yea was looking at my old z and the buttons are solid and don't move at all so was just wondering. Maybe that's how they are designed.

I spoke to a lady called jess on the live chat and she confirmed they are normal "I have read through you query and I can advise that the buttons will be slightly loose and may make a rattling sound. They are not completely solid/firm"

Yeah, i can confirm that. My volume, camera and power buttons are rattling aswell.. All i wonder, will that have an impact on waterproofing?

Waterproofing is fine. Have mine in water all the time when I rinse under sink... Could u test something for me and let me know if u experience the same... Rinse your phone under tap make sure u rinse all the buttons and then see if they rattle? Mine stop rattling until their dry and then rattle again
