    I know this could probably be posted in the Nexus S/ 4g forum but since its battery can work for many other phones, I posted this in the general android lounge.


    Ive just got a Nexus S 4G and the vibrate just plainly sucks, I can barely feel that I had calls and text messages because the intensity is so weak. I know many others may have different experiences, but if this is Google's idea of conserving battery, its useless to have a phone and not be able to pickup calls because I can't feel it vibrate unless I'm standing still and hear it in a quieter area (the highest volume isn't as loud neither IMO).

    I remember back in the day in the 90s and early 2000s manufacturers made extended/replaceable batteries that had a vibrating motor that added more vibration to the phone when it rang. Does anyone here know if they still make em? What brand? I don't mind sacrificing some battery power if I will be able to feel my phone vibrate more to pickup a call in a loud environment or when I'm walking.

    I love the phone but hell, if people actually replaces vibrate motors in phones, I may take that option as well if it doesn't cost that much.


    Thanks for your help!

    I thought the vibrate on the Nexus S and an Infuse I played with was pretty cool feeling, higher frequency, compared to my htc while typing or clicking something.

    I can see how that could be real hard to feel for notifications in a pocket though.


    Use an air die-grinder on the eccentric weight :) make it more eccentric.

    So after a good month of using the phone, the only way i got around it was turn up the ringer, make the ringer super distinctive so it'll stand out from other sounds AND change the pattern of how it vibrates so i would feel it more. I used Handcent and made each text message have 3 long vibrates. THis is the only thing I can do i guess. I'll make sure my next phone wont have this problem.
