Notion and buzzing

Notion provides a great user experience on the desktop. It does the job really well. It’s not the best app — there are quirks here and there. Feels like the zeitgeist: quick, good balance of tradeoffs, solves the problem, figure out details later.

Where it got me really into a weird state is on mobile. On iOS, when you long tap a paragraph, Notion lifts it up for reordering. Before lifting it up, my iPhone Se does a very prominent buzz, almost like when it receives an iMessage notification.

There are several things I don’t like about Se. The biggest one is the buzzer — it’s just not as good as the haptic engine of the newer iPhones.
