Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

*mind-blown*

That is certainly possible!  I'm pretty sure Girish and I were on the same page, just from the tone of the conversation.  But what a hilarious outcome if that is the case.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

I can see both sides of the argument, why it makes sense to enable always

and why users would want the choice. I'm leaning towards design on this one

though.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

In order to warn people who hate haptic feedback before getting a Motorola phone. I have written an article and posted to my blog (In Chinese):

Girish may have been incorrect or he could have also misunderstood you.  They may also not have figured out the fix yet.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

I like the reply of Girish and understand he can not order the engineering team when to deliver the fix. I believe he have already passed the concern to management. I have no complain to him.

However, the post is sent on Nov 2010 . And then Motorola announce Atrix at Jan 2011. Check the forum of Atrix. I found that Atrix also contains the same problem.

Seem that someone ,  who have power to control the development , do not care the problem. Or he/she think that Haptic Feedback is a must for everybody.

I would consider it as "Motorola do not care people who hate haptic feedback"

Then it is very fair to warn people who hate haptic feedback to not buy Motorola phone. If Motorla really think that everybody like haptic feedback , then it is nothing hurt to the sale figure.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

@benlau, it's a long shot, but have you tried disabling haptic feedback

using Spare Parts? It's available on the Android Market and I don't believe

it requires root access.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

Sorry.  I didn't realize the app for the Defy on XDA was in violation.  I guess my phone was rooted before I even tried it, and didn't realize you needed root access to use it.  I saw others there having the same issue, and gave it a try, and it worked, so I thought I would share.  I thought it was just a regular app.  I would not have posted the link if I knew it was a non-standard app.  But I guess it's a step in the right direction as posts on this thread have it listed as a bug, and since a developer on XDA found a way to turn off the haptic vibration, someone at Moto certianly can do the same, and we should see an "official" fix coming soon.  I look forward to the fix Moto!

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

I know you were just trying to help but in the future remember that if it's there there is a good chance it shouldn't be here.

Re: Haptic Feedback Won't Turn Off

I am already gave up on this xxxx issue. May be the spare parts work, I don't know. But if root is the only method , bobbyphoenix is helping on this issue. Provided a way to remove the BUG. It is still much better then told me it is a FEATURE , which is a fool of user.
