    Hi,

    When comparing the Desire S and Incredible S instore, I noticed the Incredible S has a noticeably weaker haptic feedback on both the buttons and the on-screen keyboard, compared to the Desire S.

    You could say the Desire S is much more 'buzzy', which I prefer coming from a phone with physical keys.

    Is there any way to increase this haptic feedback level, either via settings or a third party app? I could not find any setting apart from off/on when I spent a good hour comparing them! :thinking:

    Thanks.
    Jon.

    Jon, did you check if the Touch input settings (sound feedback and vibration) were same for both the handsets?

    Otherwise, it might be due to the fact that Desire S is running Gingerbread and Incredible S is still on Froyo...

    Yes, vibration was on for both. It's a noticeable difference across the buttons and screen, which I was hoping could be turned up on the Incredible. Sadly, I don't think a software update will resolve it, but you never know.

    Hope that's positive news for me, but it's also a lack of feedback on the buttons, not just the keyboard - so I have my doubts that the Gingerbread software will fix it. I think HTC have just toned it down on this device compared to the Desire and Desire S. :(

    It could be that the Desire S has more of a metal structure than the Incredible S. I think metal holds vibration better than plastic. Or maybe the piece that vibrates in the phone placed in a different location on the Desire S compared to the Incredible S.
