Touchscreen Vibration ONLY for certain events

Here is the original thread if anyone is interested!:


Ok, at the moment, when touchscreen vibration feature is enabled, the phone
will vibrate whenever the screen is touched.The vibrations get incredibly annoying, haptics are there to help guide you when your using the phone not to inform you of every single time your touch the screen, it makes kinetic scrolling and swiping through desktops ect.. very annoying..

I find touchscreen vibration is incredibly helpful when typing on the onscreen
keyboard which I use frequently as there are times when sliding the phone out
is inconvenient..


Please implement this!

Solutions for this brainstorm


Solution #1: Choose where this is enabled!

I feel that we should be able to choose where it is active:



Only on the onscreen keyboard!


Only when something active is pressed (buttons or opening an application)
