    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.
    Has it been confirmed DTTW will not be initialized for the 950/950XL?

    If so, do you have a link to the source? Thanks!

    There's no confirmation one way or the other. However, note the wording in FAQ article I quoted earlier in this thread.

    They still didn't address directly the 950/XL, just generic, "devices that support this feature". Ok sure it's obvious only the 950/XL have the "problem" but they didn't actually say 950/XL is supposed to have it :)
    Call me a skeptic but even though they replied to the ones saying 950/950XL, they still said supported devices and never explicitly said, yes the 950/950XL should have it :)

    So how long for Microsoft to finally give us back this basic and important feature? Anniversary update? A year? Shouldn't insiders be trialing it by now?

    I'd break out my Magic 8 Ball to tell you but it was automatically upgraded to a Magic 10 Ball and its now saying nothing but "Your answers aren't working. Try shaking me again."

    Likely little chance of it happening now they've finally come clean about their consumer aspirations, as in they have none. Probably not much call for such a feature in the enterprise so I wouldn't hold my breath.

    No that's not fair to say, they hope OEMs will cover the consumer space. Hardware wise, microsoft wants to focus on enterprise level stuff.

    I said this on the 18th, after the announcement. This thread is six page of comments and it is not the only thread on the subject, MS knows it is an important feature to users. Maybe the hardware cannot do it. I have the $30 640LTE for 10 testing and it does.

    The push to a business class phone is a failed dream. Except for the real security jobs, been there, where there is no camera, no bluetooth, no wifi, most business does not care what phone you have. HP will abandon the X3 phone, like the TouchPad, I have a TouchPad, Follow the money.

    Having had the 950XL, day one, kept for a month and a half. Tapping it everyday. Returning it as my last up vote for doubletap.

    From where I stand the 1020 is still the best phone for my needs.
    All I wanted was a faster 1020, I am waiting.

    If anyone looked deeply into this, they would note that "Double tap to wake" is Nokia technology, and as Microsoft moves further away, will disappear, ie. Here.

    Glance isn't going anywhere though, it actually got incorporated into the OS itself. Here is also there, with a Microsoft swing under the "Maps" app, incase you didn't know. So, where's your logic? :)

    Please check out this link. I installed this app on my L640LTE and double tap to wake setting is available and working. Not sure about 950 though. Let me know if it helps you.

    that APP has nothing to do with DTTW... DTTW is incorporated into the phone hardware, which I believe if the 950/xl had it then we would be able to use it already...

    As far as I know this feature is implemented on kernel level (software-perspective) so indeed an app could make a difference with right permissions..but you are also right...it must be equipped with the right hardware as well.

    The right hardware is simply the touchscreen, it needs to be on all the time to register taps.

    Sure that will work, we are six months in and still missing the basic feature. Countless up votes, vague promises, it's coming, we just did not realize you really wanted it. Simple and direct question, can the hardware actually do it? Unanswered.
    All I wanted was faster 1020, XL went back, afraid the screen would fail from being tapped. 1020 W/8.1 cyan and I still have Here maps.

    A lot of android phones have double tap to wake now. Non of the insider builds have double tap. Microsoft is taking forever with this and my 950 xl is turning into an expensive brick.
