Galaxy Note 10 Deal: BOGO at Verizon!
  1. AC Question's Avatar
    I would like to turn the vibration off in all other cases except when I receive a phone call or an SMS. In general, I don't want my phone to vibrate when I'm holding it in my hand and using it actively. Therefore, I would like to turn the vibration off for example when I edit the home screen (when I touch an app icon so long that the phone offers me the possibility to move it to the home screen, or remove it from the home screen), or when I choose a picture for deletion in the picture album. My phone seems to vibrate a lot, and since I've heard you can pretty much change every setting in Android, there must be settings for turning off the vibration, too, right?

    My phone is Sony Xperia Z3 Compact (lollipop).

    Hi! Its easy. Just turn down the volume with the side-buttons. Then a new window is going to appear. Just type on silent. Thats it! (works on z2 lollipop)

    If you want to turn off vibration when you tap the screen, go to Settings -> "Sound and Notifications" -> Other Sounds and then toggle "Vibrate on Touch".

    No, I agree the vibrate can be a problem, for instance some apps have a wonky vibrate I'm afraid will hurt the motor, or others overuse it and will drain the battery. The only other problem with vibrate is that sometimes a pop-up surfing the Web will make the phone vibrate and I would love to disable the vibrate for everything EXCEPT phone calls, and txts as well.
