How to change vibration intensity and length on the Samsung Galaxy S5 (TouchWiz tutorial)

How to change vibration intensity and length on the Samsung Galaxy S5 (TouchWiz tutorial)
The Galaxy S5 is among the best Android smartphones money can buy at the moment, but as good as it is in terms of the immense silicon power and new, ISOCELL camera, it’s far from perfect. We've already told you about its vivid, but fairly inaccurate AMOLED display, but while it’s hard to fix this hardware disadvantage, there are some annoying things about Samsung’s 2014 flagship that are easy to fix.

Probably the most annoying one is the extremely strong vibration setting - it’s just too intense, your phone would not just grab your attention - every notification would make you and your pocket sidekick the center of attention of the whole party.

Luckily, it’s easy to adjust the vibration intensity and pattern in Samsung’s TouchWiz on the Galaxy S5. Follow these few simple steps below to do it.

I'm all for these tutorials that PA does from time to time, but if you can't figure out that the vibration settings are somewhere in the sound menu on your own, then you should be demoted back to feature phone status.

Well with the jumbled mess of a menu screen on the S5 I could see why this article is necessary.

Stay with your iPhone, it's simple like yourself.

This may be beyond your curve.

mess...thats all. vanilla android is much cleaner. Cant throw everything into one pot and expect it to be functional.

Think about an average user looking at that...

Average folk don't buy Samsung flagships.

Well I was going to post a response that would've put aftershock in his place but looks like he's been owned already

You're still pretty proud to show others in your circle how to mute the ringer on your iPhone aren't you?

So?
Your allegiance is well known.

It literally took 3 button presses to get the menu with vibration intensity in it with no scrolling. I just tried it on my Note 3. Same thing. If you truly believe that, you need a feature phone too. Your trolling attempts are completely pathetic. It amazes me that PA still allows you to comment on this site.

So you're telling me the pull down menu on the S5 is organized and uncluttered? The average user can find something and not get confused?

I like the s5 as a whole but that menu looks ridiculous.

There's no organization, no clear direction.

It's funny to me that you use the word checkmate so often when you've proved no point. The only thing you've proven is that you're a trolling idiot who makes very little use of logic.

It's funny to me that you ignored my questions because you don't want to admit that I'm right.

I've made my point.

I ignored your question because it's a matter of opinion. Besides, if you had ever used a Touchwiz device, you would know that the notification shade is almost completely customizable. Mine literally has the quick settings across the top & nothing more.

So I guess you admit it needs a user to de-clutter it. That was his original point. You just got butthurt somewhere along the way.

Exactly.

I'm not admitting to anything. I was just stating my own personal preference. That preference is in no way representative of anybody else. People need to get over their gratuitous use of the word "butthurt". Believe me, there are many more pressing things in my life for me to be worried about. The ravings of some goofball on an internet forum doesn't rank very high.

So you're pretty much saying it's up to the user to declutter and clean up Samsung's mess?

Nope. Not at all. It's just the beauty of Android. :-D

Yeah the beauty that's been skinned and heavily modified by touchwiz.

Why don't you stop your nag nag bla bla complaining

Always looking for trouble and back biting

Mxzy is a wise matured guy whose cool and farm and easy going

Get over it. He did surely hit the nerve, that you had to be repulsive and attack him

He contrubutes unlike you always pointing out and calling others idiot when your the one.

Grow up kid.

Next time keep the hominem attack to yourself, and keep on the topic.
