How to adjust haptic feedback on a Google Android 2.2 device

Customise how much you handset vibrates

Haptic feedback is a useful function on touchscreen smartphones as it alerts the user their command on the handset has been recognised and processed through vibration. Users will be able to adjust how strong or weak the vibration is to suit them, and devices running Google Android are no exception. We show you how to adjust the haptic feedback on your Android device.

Step one
From the Home screen, Press the Menu key and select Settings.

Step two
Open the Sound menu and scroll down to Haptic feedback. Make sure there's a tick in the box next to this.

Step three
Press Vibration intensity and then use the on-screen slider to make the vibrations stronger or weaker. As you move the slider, you'll feel the phone vibrate indicating the strength of the level you've selected.

Step four
When you're happy with the level selected press OK. Then use the back button to exit the menu.
