I've had my S5 for about ten days, and just today the vibration and haptic functions stopped working. I tried resetting the phone, changing all of the settings for vibration and haptic feedback, and even tested vibration in the diagnostics menu and got nothing. I'm afraid this is a hardware issue and I'll either need a replacement or repair. Since I haven't even had the phone for a month, will it be possible to get a free replacement or repair? If I'm not even getting vibration in the diagnostics menu, is there any way this is a software issue that I can fix without taking the phone apart?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Nope, power saving is turned off, and even if it weren't I'd still be getting vibration in the diagnostics menu. Power saver does not override diagnostics.
Thanks, that's what I figured, but I didn't want to throw in the towel without some more confirmation. I don't have a repair center near me, so I'm just going to take it into the Sprint store tomorrow and see what they can do for me. Hopefully I can get a replacement because it's only been 10 days since I bought it.
