    I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it: the feature doesn't exist until and unless it exists.

    Technology promises are nothing but a gentle breeze blowing, without substance and gone before you know it.

    Convince yourself to be happy with whatever it is you buy in the state it exists when you buy it. To play the game of "well, they'll fix/add that later" is a fool's game.

    I have a Lumia 830, glance and double tap work on 10586.11. Maybe the 950 need that one

    Double-tap to wake has had some issues since installing Win10 on my 1020. I will take the phone out of my pocket and there it is awake telling me I entered the wrong pin too many times. Not always but enough to be annoying.

    It was confirmed to have had it already but not sure why it was removed but shouldn't be a hardware issue. Though im not sure:

    agreed - I'd "trade" the iris scanner for double-tap to wake any day.

    The double-tap to wake feature is one of the solutions to the brittle power / wake-up key that has breaked multiple times on Lumia 620 and other models. The abscence of this feature means that my phone will get crippled significantly sooner than expected.

    Just a thought,

    I went through all the settings and noticed the Double Tap setting is not there.

    They have a the Double Tap Navigation Bar to Sleep

    Why not turn off the option that prevents Wake Up from Holding the Camera Button. Not exactly perfect but that's another way to wake the phone.

    Not just Lumia's, this is a problem on most phones after a time. I had a few iPhones and HTC's where their primary keys became intermittent.

    (i'm finding myself increasingly annoyed to have to hit the power key before I mash the phone to my face. I'm thinking my Lumia 1520's double-tap to wake, plus pin is a bit easier.)

    If the FAQ is correct, we just regressed back to the stone age. One more ding on an otherwise positive outlook for Windows Phone. Why are useful features taken away? Hello is super interesting but as useless as a door knob. I have to stare at my phone intently from 2 inches away for 5 seconds? No thanks, give me a good old fashioned (pun intended) fingerprint reader and I would be happy. It is much more useful (I can use it at arm's length while paying on an NFC terminal for example, or under the table while sneaking a text during a meeting, etc.) and much faster (at least until Hello gets better.

    Then there is the app gap that gets better and worse... Some apps are now Universal (welcome) and some are going even darker (Starbucks apps of all sorts are now completely gone!!)

    Tap To Wake again, superb feature that I never knew I wanted while a loyal iOS fan... now I can't live without it.

    Ugh, back to spamming the feedback app I guess :)

    Son of a... I just got a 950 XL, and was looking for tap to wake. I easily use it dozens of times a day on my 1520. Mind-boggling that they shipped a new flagship without the feature.

    Yes, I had a similar experience with the 950 I received last week. Although not a direct replacement, I tried Hello and found that it didn't work very quickly or reliably. Then weird things began to happen on the phone with text messages appearing in the wrong color at random times and then the cell radio stopped working on Thursday (Wi-Fi still worked). Obviously, a hardware problem. Got a new phone from a local AT&T store on Friday and everything works fine. Tried Hello again and I found that it worked much better than the first time and I'm now using it daily (at least for the past 3 days). However, I would urge MS to bring back double-tap. It is one of the best features of the Windows mobile OS.

    I also want this feature. On top of that, the "use with gloves" feature is also missing. I think it's kind of combined with double-tap to wake...

    I think so too. At least "Super Sensitive Touch" is listed in the specs, so I expect it will come through an update soon, along with double tap to wake. The last one does not seem to be in the specs for any phone.

    Not missing from the OS... it's missing from the 950/XL. Double tap still works on my 1520 with WM10

    If you are running the latest WM 10 Pre-Release on your 1520 then that may be the issue. The latest pre-release is not the same as the version that is running on the 950. The latest version of WM 10 on the Lumia 950 is 10.0.10586.0 and the version mentioned above is 10.0.10586.11. The double tap function is available as the double tap to sleep works on the 950 now. It could also need a firmware update which may be the key.

    Of course there are assumptions here and I do not work for Microsoft. :)

    That is not correct!
    Our Company have 22 Lumia 950 at this moment. All with 10.0.10586.0 and none of them able to do double tap to wake.

    Oh yes. It has double tap to sleep. :-(

    Mimo,
    I said the double tap to sleep works on my 950 right now...not the double tap to wake...it still fails to work.
    Thank you for your comments!

    Frustrating that double tap doesn't wake the device. I hate always having to press the button, then going to swipe up to unlock.

    No fingerprint scanner is also not good :( In this day and age, for the price you pay for it, you'd expect to see this feature. Seeing cheaper more affordable handsets with fingerprint scanners

    I just picked up a dual sim 950XL and now reading this. What a joke! Even my Blackberry Priv has double-tap to wake and also pick-up to wake where the screen comes on just by picking up the device. No fingerprint reader is a mistake. The Priv doesn't have one either but at least two other more efficient options than hitting the power button and staring at the screen to unlock. I hope this is fixed soon.

    That's not how it works. I can press the button and bring it close to my face and it's done as close as 10-12 inches before it recognizes and unlocks in 1-2 seconds.

    If MS wants to be taken seriously it has to deliver! Even my LG G4 has this Double-tap to wake/sleep feature and works just fine.
    My new and shinny 950 XL "premium" phone dont have touchID scanner which sucks but ok i buy it and now they remove this essential feature! Having to
    start the phone by the side key is just a hassle in many situations. They added Double-tap sleep so why the wake up feature is not there is mind blowing.
    These small things are the reason people stay away from the platform. No communication from MS, no plan, beta software, missing essential features.
    I love my 950 XL and many features like being to finally record call without using thirdparty apps and rooting and stuff, having removable battery and SD card but these small yet so important features making it hard for me to take the phone as my daily driver.

    I think we can safely assume its not coming! Unlike the 930 with glance, MS have not explained themselves, so there is only a little hope. But certainly not a priority by the looks of it
