    Hi everyone,

    I was at a cell phone store a couple of days ago and couldn't help noticing that the vibration intensity of the Galaxy Note II was somewhat significantly lower than that of the Galaxy S4, even at its maximum level. The S4 didn't have any vibration intensity setting (possibly due to the 4.2.2 OS) and I'd like to assume that it was at its max level.

    I tried out the same two phones at another store and the observation was exactly the same. Could there have been some defects in the display phones i tried (due to overuse) or is it indeed a characteristic of the Galaxy Note II (that its vibration is weaker than the S4's)?

    I have a second question: How is the vibration intensity of the Galaxy Express as compared to the the Galaxy Note II and/or Galaxy S4?

    Will greatly appreciate your replies

    Does it matter if the Note II vibration does not register on the richter scale...lol
    Whether it be that much less in intensity than that of the S4, is irrelevant; as long as it can be felt.

    Thanks for your reply. Right now, my Galaxy Express's vibration can barely be felt in my pocket, even at the maximum intensity setting. Was wondering how undefective Galaxy Note IIs and Galaxy S4s compare to the Galaxy Express when it comes to vibrations.

    Haven't used a Samsung Express myself, but can confirm that the vibration intensity of the NoteII is more than satisfactory and I have yet to miss a call/notification while the device is in my pocket or beside me on a desk/table.

    I have the Note II and the vibration is very weak in comparison with my old iPhone 4. When I have it on a blanket on my lap, I don't even feel it vibrate. Other than that, my Note II is better in every aspect.

    I agree that the intensity is very weak. I never feel it if its in my belt holster and only about half the time in my pocket.

    Thanks for your replies

    Is the vibration intensity of the Galaxy Express any better than the Note II?

    Thank you

    Hmmmm...I'm not sure. Vibration is one of the first things I look to disable. Somehow, I have it in my mind that I may get better battery life by turning it off. It could be that the S4's vibrator is bigger than the Note 2's.
