My HTC One seems to vibrate for every damn notification that comes on. When it does this, the screen does not come on and there's no sound. I know how to turn notifications off, but I"m trying to figure out how define when a notification :

a) Turns on the screen so I can see the notification without having to turn the phone on, go to the notifications screeen, etc.

b) Provides a audio notification / tone

c) Does or does NOT vibrate

Personally, I find the vibrate with no sounds and no screen to be the most annoying.

  • One other comment. Is there a way that I can defined what shows up in the notification bar without turning off all notifications? For example, I run a software called "PlaceMe". In the notification settings, it shows "PlaceMe is running". I want to be able to receive notifications from it, but I don't want the "PlaceMe Is Running" to permanently take up real estate in my notifications center".

    You can turn off notificatioins / vibrate / ring tone for each individual app, or go into Applications > <your app> and turn off notifications altogether. There is no system wide 'turn off notifications etc' in Android. Still. It's dumb, and annoying, but that's how it works on Android.

  • Most applications itself will contain these settings...

This worked for me on my HTC One M8

First Go to Settings, then go to Accessibility, and click Notification Reminder to Off



First, make sure you have priority interruptions only. You can change your priorities here.

You can also disable notifications, so your phone won't buzz.

IMG: Uncheck 'Show notifications'
