When you tap certain items, your phone will vibrate a bit, giving you a little feedback. Sometimes it’s good, but maybe you don’t like it. The good news is, it’s easy to turn off on any Android device.

Of course, this is Android we’re talking about, so the process is going to vary depending on your specific model. That being said, you should be able to freely track and find the necessary settings on your phone or tablet.

How to turn off haptic feedback on a Google Pixel

First, swipe down from the top of the screen twice to expand Quick Settings, then tap the gear icon to open Settings, according to HowtoGeek.

From there, proceed to the “Sound and vibration” option. Tap on it. Scroll down to “Vibration and Haptics”. Note that this will be disabled if your phone is in silent mode, which also disabled haptics. Now just turn off the switch to “Use vibration and haptics”.

If you also want to remove touch vibration from the keyboard, check out our guide on how to do that.

How to turn off haptic feedback on a Samsung Galaxy

First, swipe down once from the top of the screen and tap the gear icon to open settings. Now go to the “Sounds and vibrations” section, according to Android Central.

Scroll down to “System sound / vibration control”. The lower section of the rockers is intended for vibrations. Enable or disable the items you want to change.

Note that you can turn off vibration for the Samsung keyboard here, but if you are using a different keyboard, you will need to do so from the settings of this app.

Your phone will now be without vibration or haptic feedback. Haptic feedback is nice if your phone has a good vibration motor, but it can be annoying if it doesn’t feel right.

How to adjust the vibration intensity of your Android phone

By default, your phone is set to vibrate when you interact with it or receive a notification. But if its intensity is too shocking for you, Android makes it easy to customize your phone’s vibration levels. Here’s how to do it.

Access the Settings menu of your Android phone or tablet from the app drawer or by tapping the gear icon in the notification panel. Scroll down and enter the “Accessibility” menu.

Under “Interaction Controls” near the bottom of the page, select “Vibration and Haptic Haptics” (or “Vibration and Haptic Force”).

Here you can separately customize the strength of your phone’s haptic feedback and the strength with which it buzzes when you receive a phone call or notification. You can choose between three intensity levels or turn it off completely.

On some devices, such as Google Pixel handsets, the intensity can be customized on a sliding scale.

How to adjust the intensity of vibrations on a Samsung Galaxy

If you have a Samsung Android device, you won’t find this option in the “Accessibility” menu.

To access it, open the “Settings” app and navigate to Sounds and vibrations> Vibration intensity.
Adjust the available sliders to adjust the intensity of the vibrations of incoming calls, notifications, and tactile interaction response to your liking, according to Groovy Post.

You should be able to locate the “Vibration intensity” setting through either of these two methods as long as your phone has Android 10 or higher.
