Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

I'm surprised that many people hate it, I love it.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

I like it as well, I like that it's active when I don't want the phone to

vibrate on every interaction but it's nice to know when you press the

softkeys at the bottom of the screen as there is no other indication to know

if you pressed them or not.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

I'm not a Defy owner but in doing research can't it be disabled for the

touchscreen? I know the soft keys can't be, which makes since to me.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

Haptic feedback can be disabled for the screen it's the softkeys at the

bottom which is the "bug" that's being referred to in this thread. It's not

a bug, the functionality is still present in the upcoming 2.2 upgrade.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

Ok, so I started this thread and have been following it all along.  This is getting silly.  We went through the whole process once, until FINALLY a Motorola employee with the username "Girish" agreed that it was a bug.  Head all the way back to the beginning of this thread - I marked this Answered because it was answered!

And now it seems Motorola, you are backtracking all over again.  And again, I just don't buy it.  Frustrating to have to do this, but I'm just going to repost something I wrote earlier, and then the reply that was received.

---------------------------------------------

ME:

"I dunno, not really buying it.  I  can see how some designer could think that but really, functionally the  soft keys are just dedicated areas of the touch screen.  Motorola allows  me to turn off haptic feedback for the "general touch area" so why not  for the "specific touch area" aka the Soft Keys?

In any case, when I go into "Sounds and display" and uncheck "Haptic feedback" here's what it says for the description:

"Vibrate when pressing soft keys and on certain UI interactions"

That  seems pretty clear to me that this is supposed to turn off haptic  feedback whenever i touch a soft key.  Sorry, still calling bug on this  one."

MOTOROLA (via Girish):

"We have indeed confirmed that this  is due to a bug and we will get this fixed. I just wanted to ACK your  issue so that you know about it being fixed  and we hope that you won't  return the phone because of this issue. Thank  you.

Now, I know that the next question will be when and if it will be fixed for an upgrade and if we will have an upgrade etc You will have to wait to find out if/when etc about the upgrade."

----------------------------------------------

Motorola, you were all shady during the issue with the earpiece not working, and now with this.  Really dissappointing.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

I realize this as I have also been here the entire time but the issue is

still present and at this time seems to be a function of the phone instead

of a "bug". This "bug" also occurs in Motorola's newer phones like the

Atrix, so it's not just the DEFY that does this.

I am sorry if you feel you have been wronged in some way, but it is what it

is. The phone will softly vibrate upon tapping the softkeys at the bottom of

the screen, which are not part of the screen but are the same in the way

that they detect user input.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

Again... a Motorola employee corresponded and confirmed it was a bug.

Having it in newer phones just means they still haven't fixed their software :-P 

A bug in many places != feature.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

Perhaps, but it is also in the upgraded software.

It may have been unintended at first but it is in multiple lines in

different software versions and has not been patched.

I'll see if we can get a followup.

There is also this post.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

The possibility exists that the bug could be the description of the haptic

feedback "feature".
