    I agree. They need to say 950Xl/950
    I have bought into this ecosystem whole heartedly. I have a surface a 950XL and a microsoft band. I totally love it all, except my old 1520 had double tap to wake that worked perfectly on my desk on a wireless charger while I was busy at work. My new TOP OF THE LINE 950XL doesn't have that simple feature that made life so much easier. C'mon microsoft!! Get your stuff together. I tell everyone I meet how superior you OS is, but I refuse to lie when you lose basic features with a flagship product!!

    Everyone needs to go to the feedback hub to +1 the double tab and comment for the 950/950xl.
    Unfortunately I'm not on insider and I'm still using my 1520 because of double tap to wake. I did however rate my phone low and said I needed the double tap. Is there any other way to give feedback without joining insider?

    Just picked up my 950xl. Loving this phone so far. I was really worried that I would miss double tap to wake and held off upgrading due to it. While I'm annoyed it is not a reason to hold off. I'm really surprised by how well hello and the iris scanner work. I hope they bring double tap to wake soon, I do really miss that great feature.

    I agree, MS needs to bring back double tap, because when I have my L950XL in the wireless car charger I have to fumble with the power button to see my screen, whereas it would be so easy to double tap the screen to wake the phone. I can't fathom why MS finds this so difficult to enable such a great feature to have and should have been implemented right from the beginning! I find MS not making smart and good decisions lately.... although this isn't a good enough reason in my mind to pass on this phone because of the lack of double tap to wake... that's like refusing to buy a Lamborghini because it doesn't come with a lighter... lol

    I think it's a power management issue with the display.

    So uncool though. The L950 (not the XL) is a mighty cool phone, and it sucks having to do low efficiency / lame things to access it.

    Hey Cortana really doesn't work well for me in the car, not any time really.... like I just tried it now, no response. But if I open up Cortana then it seems to work after. But the thing is that it's supposed to be working at all times. I'm ok dealing with bad battery life with EVERY feature on and stuff connected but have it working :)

    Yea, they already have double tap to turn off, so I don't know why it's so hard to do the opposite?

    I'm not excusing it or anything, but maybe I can shed some light on the complexity of the thing.

    DTTW is quite a bit different in that the device is asleep when its used. Sure, its a double tap on the screen, but it means the touch panel would have to be on most of the time and it might pose power management issues, quirky things, etc.

    Although to be honest, I just feel Mobile's underfunded/staffed and they're trying to do the best they can since its not a "critical" feature or bug.

    Well it is a critical feature to all the WP phone users I know - all have dodged 950 as a result of workflow interruption.

    So reaching an inch or two further to the power button is really that hard of a task.

    We've been spoiled. It's like Glance! It's hardly a big feature, being literally a clock on paper, but it makes a disproportionately large impact on the workflow.

    Take Android's Ambient Display. It's just like Glance! But the display's touch panel is on at that time. Does it make a difference? Not on paper, but it was such an annoyance to see the phone wake up in my hand that I turned it off.

    It is when it comes to using the 950XL. And how long before the physical power button gives out to wear & tear of overuse of turning the display/lock screen on?

    And Double Tap to Wake is a lot easier to use when the phones side buttons are awkward to get to when in a car cradle (my usage is mostly Play/Pausing podcasts when I am stopped at a delivery doing multi-drops in the work van).

    My first insider phone was lucky enough to get the double tap to wake, since the new builds after that, I haven't seen it. I received the 950 on the next build after the one with the tap to wake. I seen on the 950 double tap to sleep, not to wake., but when my BLU phone received the newest build, I didn't see double tap to sleep. Seem like if you
    don't catch the feature during a build, you miss out.

    What else is missing from this version of the OS?
    It's not the OS. W10 mobile has double tap to wake on all the phones in our family (1520s and 640s).

    Good! Dumb question but does the 1020 support running W10M? If so you could still have W10 AND DTtW. Just like I do with 930.

    Also, do you still like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain?

    I did take the 1020 to an early version of 10, double tap worked. There were just so many things that were not finished that rolled back to 8.1. I use the the 1020 for so many photo ops that I am not willing risk it. I purchased a 635 to test the upgrades, it did not have double tap. I also purchased a 640LTE, the $30 one. It does have DT with 10 and is a really nice phone.
    Yes, did have the instrumental riff from Escape as my ring tone for years. You are showing our age.

    Well, I guess it is a wrap on double tap for the XL. Unlikely to be any additional improvements to a dead phone line. Maybe, I can pick up another 1020 for cheap. Until someone comes up with something close to it's camera features, I will just carry the 1020.
