Most people set their Android device to vibrate to avoid having having to deal with their phone or tablet constantly dinging whenever they get a system or notification alert. However, sometimes the resulting vibration from a device sitting on a desk or table can be just as bad.

Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.
