Home Screen app (10.2.A.2.80) - no vibration on touch!

Home Screen app (10.2.A.2.80) - no vibration on touch!

Today (02.11.2017) i have updated on Android 6.0.1 the Home Screen app to the latest version. (10.2.A.2.80)

I have no vibration at all on the screen!

Before this, no matter where i was in the menu, either in Contacts, either in Settings, every time i pressed something (either a key or a section on screen, or a menu or sub-menu) my phone was vibrating on touch. On unlocking the phone i had vibration on click on pin, now it's gone. Why...?

With this new version of HomeScreen app, vibration stopped!

The vibration takes place only when keyboard is involved, but this is not ok!

Please bring it back, or somehow give me the possibility to uninstall this version of Home Screen, to revert to previous version.

@Kiu_RO which phone do you use and what software version are you running (Settings > About phone > Build number)?

is "vibrate on touch" in Settings > Sounds & notifications > Other sounds enabled?

go to Support app > Tools > Diagnostics > Test > Vibration. does the vibration sensor work for you?  

is your phone rooted?
have you always used Xperia Home launcher or have you downloaded a 3rd party launcher in the past?

@Kiu_RO thanks for the replies.

 

I have to say, I find it weird that you've had your phone vibrate when touching any menu or submenu. Xperia Home can't really modify vibration behaviour on lockscreen, in Settings, or in any other app. I don't think I've ever seen a setting like that on any Sony phone. have you been using some kind of third party app or accessibility in order to do that?
