I want to turn off vibration when pressing the back, home and search keys.

Is it possible to do this in Windows Phone 8+?

This feature is available since WP 8.0 Black update, under Settings → Touch.

The Lumia Black update only applies to Nokia phones. What about other brands? Was this feature part of GDR3 or Black? –  Indrek Apr 20 '14 at 11:12
I'll check HTC with gdr3 –  mpapec Apr 20 '14 at 12:52

You can turn this off in the touch settings:
1. Go to Settings
2. Navigate to Touch

You should be able to see these options

This feature is also available on WP8. In fact, the screen you posted is exactly the same on my Lumia with GDR3. –  akid Apr 20 '14 at 8:22
Note this works on Nokia Lumia phones only. I'm not able to see it in my HTC. –  Krzysztof Kraszewski Apr 20 '14 at 12:36
