I've got a Samsung A51 running Android 10 / One UI 2.1 and updated to latest available security patch (1st September 2020).

 

Other users report being able to globally turn vibrations off [1], and this appears to have been available in stock Android since 2018 [2] (although it was available on Windows Phones in 2016...). I don't have the same options in my Accessibility menu - have Samsung moved this, or have they disabled the functionality completely?

There's no magic button to turn off everything, therefore you have to go into sound and vibrations, also as alarms, heptic keyboard settings etc. Yes one switch would be good, but I've not found one.

Exactly, that's my question :smiling-face:

 

I know that this functionality is available on One UI 2.5. One UI 2.1 was released laster than 2018, so have Samsung consciously removed the functionality? 

If so, this is a _massive_ retrograde step, to the extent that I'd return my device and go and buy one that was actually useful...

Sorry mate, but NOT on an A52..  Nowhere is there a way to switch off vibrations just for messages. It is not in message app, and nothing on phone unless one mutes the phone..

 

Unknown what phone you have..
