    Vibration is not working post update, whenever there is an message or notification from any app, the phone triggers a short haptic buzz, not the proper vibration.
    The issue is still even after clearing the cache.

    Although it's not a bug, it's a bad configuration at oxygenos level. In the latest update (9.5.9) oneplus devs changed the haptic feedback and it seams that they turned by software a excellent vibration motor in a very weak and definitely not good enough.

    absolutely...the new update has made the motor too weak. cant even notice calls and notifications if the device is in pocket and on strong vibration intensity.

    An update on this: Today, I received a message from bug hunter team saying that the product team will redesign the vibration patterns. (I'm in contact with them since the update, giving feedback, etc)
    Also, they said the vibration will change to how it worked in previous version in next update.

    Conclusion: Oneplus is listening our feedback.

    And with the update 9.5.10 (rolling out right now) it seems to be fixed :) The vibration seems to be even stronger than before the 9.5.9, but maybe it's just placebo. Anyway we're back to proper haptic strong vibration for notifications.

    No, it's not placebo.
    A member of the bug hunters team told me in a message that oneplus devs would revert back the changes on haptic feedback in the next update. The "next update" is 9.5.10.
    They promised, they delivered. It's oneplus listening to the community feedback (me, you and several other users that gave feedback)
    Lets wait for possible future changes to the haptic feedback and the way it works. One possible good way is to be possible to set a custom vibration feedback at system level, like what we can do with calls (dzz-dzz, dzz-da, mm-mm, etc) or something like that.

    I know it is not placebo that it is fixed. What I meant was wondering if it is stronger than pre 9.5.9 (which was already ok). And I think it is. Loving this community, never settle!

    Sorry, I misunderstood what you said.

    But... Thinking about it now, the moment I received the notification from community app about your reply, I felt very easily the haptic feedback, and it's configured in medium strength. Probably they decided to "unleash" a little more the excellent haptic/vibration motor... :cool: So, if it is too much for someone the solution is just change it to light, if it's too soft to other person the solution is set it to strong. Win/win from oneplus, in my opinion. :D
