    So recently my phone started to vibrate everytime I pick it up. The screen is off and doesn't turn on, it just vibrates, what's going on?

    It's to let you know you have an unread notification.

    It's baffling there is no single, universal setting to absolutely turn off haptic feedback. Instead, there are options all over the place in various apps and widgets, in addition to the main system settings, to enable/disable it. Someone somewhere doesn't seem to understand that some people just don't want the device to vibrate at all, ever, period?
