    I mean, I think the 620 would be OK. but the 720 !!!!
    They could've at least compensated by updating the said devices before the 920 or the 820.

    Very much disappointed. Did they at least give a reason as to why the features will not be there and if third party apps can make the feature available?

    Expected on 620. This will probably disappoint a lot of 720 users.

    No. They probably wanted to extend the list of differences between the 720 and 820.

    Extremely disappointed as a 720 user. I really don't care about that feature, but Nokia can't say in this case that's a missing hardware issue, it's just simple: they don't want to bring this to the 520, 620, 720. I just feel somehow betrayed :). I really do. I'm sorry, but as much as I love my phone, the next one won't be a Nokia.

    Lumia 520 AT&T GoPhone has double tap to wake as shown in video below. I'll wait and see, Lumia 720 user here and love the device, really want double tap do wake. BTW, I love the curved glass in this device, makes it feels premium and nice to touch.

    Green light for Lumia Amber – Nokia Conversations : the official Nokia blog

    Earlier it has been Lumia 520 and Lumia 625 lacking some features, due to lower display memory. I don't think this has changed.

    That source contains a post from a Nokia Community manager who says double tap is not available for the 520, though it is on my Mom's 520.

    Guess I shouldn't have described the source reliable then. I seriously would like those features on my 620. But the enormous list of complaints on WPCentral that the 620 lacks double tap to wake made me believe that the source information is true. So, until I get the update, I'll just wait.

    If this is true, the features are getting less as time passes but the time for the amber to reach the phones goes on increasing -_-

    If this is true, nokia would have released this information along with the info that Lumia 620 wont have FM and 520 wont have Glance or at least before they started distributing the Update because as of my knowledge, they would have tested update on all devices before the distribution started and would have released this information before it as now the update is just waiting for approval and not under testing, so this info may be wrong.

    Does it get Glance? My friend has the 521 on T-Mobile and I noticed yesterday that her phone didn't get Glance with the GDR2/Amber update. Odd.

    Well, the 520 and 521 will never get Glance. The double tap to wake may or may not come in a future update.

    If they had given the tap to wake on 720, it'd cause a battery drain as it is LCD.
    This would mean people all around the world cursing Nokia for eating battery, since they haven't given this feature, people want to curse about not giving it.
