Will Constant Vibration Damage the motor?

As title really, with the new feature having vibration like on PS Gamepad, and on a game like Gran Turismo in Rally mode, its on almost perminantly. My question is can this damage the phone or is the motor designed for prolonged use?

Cheers

if it's annoying for you , you can disable it , you have two solutions, within game, all game let you choose to disable Vibrations, or just grow the value Vib_Treshhold within fpse.ini.

Ok thanks, it is slighlty annoying in the rally mode but on road mode its ok, so I can have a play with the settings but I am just worried I will damage my phone.

Well thats the question. If you ask me it never was meant to be working for londer period of time. I think you should set high treshold for it, so vibrations dont occour that often =)

I agree. The motor wasn't made to vibrate for long periods of time. Short bursts shouldn't harm it too much. But if you're worried disable it or threshold higher.
