    Default Increase vibration intensity on S4?

    I know it is unlikely - but is it possible to increase the vibration intensity on an S4? I carry my phone while archery hunting and my buddy and I use them to communicate from our stands. I normally miss his call because I either don't hear the or feel the vibration on my S4. Thanks.

    I don't think you can do it on the stock ROM. There are some custom ROMs that let you increase the intensity though

    Thanks. I figured the max was it but it was worth a shot I suppose.

    Can't try it on my phone because I'm on a custom ROM but apparently you can. It should be set to the max but I think the custom ROMs make it able to be raised higher

    I think you have to be rooted to do this as well
    Is a custom ROM completely out of the question?

    No not out of the question - however everything else on the phone works as I want it to and I'm not really wild about messing around rooting etc for just a stronger vibrate. Plus there's only 2 weeks of archery season left this year anyway - so after that it won't matter until next year.
