How much do you care about haptic feedback?

    Personally, a good vibration motor is very important to me, but I feel like I might be in the minority. When I used an LG v10, the haptics were pretty good, but when I upgraded to a OnePlus 5t, the haptics were so ridiculously bad that I disable touch feedback in the device. After recently getting a OnePlus 7 pro, I'd say that the great haptic motor is my second favorite feature, right below the screen.

    I tend to rely on haptic feedback a lot too. With sound disabled in a lot of public situations, having that quiet buzz for notifications is a big plus.

    Welcome to Android Forums, davemackron! :)

    Personally, I rely on a combination of feedback when typing on my Android devices; here's how I have my keyboard set:


    On a regular keyboard--the physical kind, on a computer--I'm an extremely fast and accurate touch typist. On a tiny, virtual keyboard...not so much! :eek: I need all the help I can get to make sure I'm hitting the right keys.

    It's the very first thing I turn off (well, that and keypad tones, but they get turned-off at the same time).

    Seriously, I have never found it in the least bit helpful: telling when I've pressed a virtual key has never been a problem, and there's no way in which it helps me hit the right one, so for me it's just an annoyance, nothing else.

    Now I like a nice strong vibration motor for silent notifications (which I use a lot), and actually have the phone set to vibrate for notifications whether silent or not (as I can often feel it before I hear it when outdoors/in noisy conditions and the phone is buried deep in a pocket). But haptic feedback on screen interactions is something I genuinely dislike.
