Is it me, or is the Vibrate incredibly loud when sitting on a wooden desk/table??
So when this thing is sitting on my desk or wooden bed-side table, the vibrate is incredibly loud - really actually annoyingly loud! This morning I got an email at 5 a.m. and it scared the hell out of me.
I assume this is due to the camera lens contacting the hard surface.
Obviously not a deal breaker, and i'm not complaining about the phone - but just thought i'd share that. Anyone else notice it?
Even not on a hard surface the vibrate is a little too loud for my taste.
At work, I have a double-stack of post-it notes (they're like 3/4 inch thick each) that I'm used to setting my phone on (previously iPhone). I did this so when my phone went off, it wouldn't make a ton of noise. Even sitting on this paper stack, my Evo is really loud :S
Can anyone comment on the strength of the vibration in comparison with a HTC Hero? The Hero can be quite loud as well but actually feels very weak to unnoticeable when it's in my pocket. I have to have ringtones disabled for most of the day. I miss the old days where early cell phone or pager vibrations were startling and unmissable.
I had a Hero before I got the Evo and I really noticed the loudness of the Evo's vibration when on a table. I don't know if it's because the metal ring around the camera is the point of contact or if it is just that much stronger. I was never impressed with the Hero's vibrate function though since it always seemed pretty weak.
my coffee table has a glass top, when this thing goes off it sounds like a jackhammer is going to shatter the glass haha. I believe its just because the lens and a tiny bit of the bottom of the phone is touching the surface. With my old phone, it had a completely flat back, so that kind of spreads out the vibrating.
I purchased an Evo 4g back in September of 2011, i LOVED how quiet it was when it vibrated, unlike any other phone i owned. When that Evo gave out on me, sprint gave me a new one. Now this one vibrates so loud! wth could it be?
When Sprint announced their first ever 4G handset at CTIA in March 2010, they dropped a bombshell on the mobile world. The HTC Evo 4G is a device that introduces a lot of firsts when compared to other North American handsets. This is the first Andr... Read More
