    Windows Phone 8 update to activate FM radios, enable double-tap to wake Lumia 920 | The Verge

    We need to get HTC to be on board with this. I would absolutely love it if we had that feature. I would be really bummed if it didnt come since I hate the flush power button.

    Not only is it easier, but gives the power button a bit more life if you aren't always pushing it.

    Would be nice, together with FM radio feature.

    Honestly I don't think that we will get the double tap because not once that HTC came out with a custom option, exclusive app or tweaks for our phones. They simply brought the phone out and that's it!!!!

    You do realize that this would lead to ridiculous battery drain, right? TouchWake means that the screen is always active, waiting for you to touch it. Screen always active=always doing something=battery drain.

    A+ It impacts the battery too much.

    The BlackBerry z10 wakes up by sliding a finger on the screen. I don't think it materially affects battery life or Nokia and BlackBerry wouldn't be doing it.

    This would be great to have.

    I miss how I unlocked my old LG Optimus 7 by pressing the Windows key.

    I guess double tapping the screen or a long press on the Windows key could be great to have.

    Well the 8x doesn't have Synaptics hardware, so double tap to wake is out of the question.

    It's high time HTC should do something about their Windows Phone line. Wish we could do something about it.

    They hardly do anything for WP at all, let alone exclusive features.

    Just let me be optimistic:) I intend to use my 8x for a longer period, so I hope HTC will endow it with extra features.

    Yes, I know... day dreams...
