    Was watching the above video comparing the NL930 and the HTC One M8 and noticed that at the ~3:45 mark he mentions how both phones have double tap to wake. He than shows it working on the 930. I thought we weren't getting this feature? Is there hope?

    Ugh I know he only had the 930 for a little while but still he could not have done a better job at making wp look like an ugly mess...

    The 930 isn't getting Glance, but double tap to wake is on every Lumia phone, soon to be each Windows Phone though (in 8.1). :)

    No, the Icon doesn't have it now, but in the video, the 930 has 8.1 installed.

    My Lumia 1320 Now has Double tap to wake up option.
    I never made it on because it consumes more power. For this feature screen will be always on and wait for getting double tap.
    Its great feature but no more practicable

    Try it out, it doesn't actually consume that much more power in terms of having it off. I have it on always on my 920 with no noticeable drain. :)

    This is a very good sign!

    Hey Rubino, Sabri & Co. How about some news on whether or not the Icon will get Doublet Tap to Wake?

    I am fairly certain that double tap to wake is coming to all Windows Phones as a Microsoft update. I don't remember if it is from 8.1 or just another future update. The only reason double tap to wake isn't on the Icon is because Nokia has it tied to Glance, which the Icon can not handle.

    Actually Nokia is pretty liberal with the licensing of the patent for double tap. LG has it, Sony has it, HTC now has it, even Jolla has it. It's becoming pretty standard and rightfully so. I always found the double-tap to wake way more useful and helpful that the Glance screen. Actually, it's the reason I won't use Glance. No need. I just double tap and look at the time along with a pretty picture.

    Well, not only the sensor keeps bringing up the clock (I always have the phone near me), I find Glance disruptive with the clock always moving around. I rather double tap to see lockscreen. It also gives me more info than Glance so I never found a real need for it. It's a cool feature and I know many people love it (enough to be a deal breaker for the 930. My deal breaker is the lack of an SD slot). I personally don't have much use for it =P

    Uhh, every time... Oh well, maybe Double Tab to Wake (and Glance) will be available for my Icon once WP8.1 is available.

    Good find on the video and information.

    Double Tap will. Glance won't. There's some problem with the type of screen used in the 929/930. Nokia is trying to figure out a way around the limitation but nothing yet.
    Daniel wrote an article about it.

    A few years ago even a pinch to zoom was an Apple's patent... I had my first iPhone 2G with this awesome feature and everybody wanted it.. And now ? Every phone has it... But there was also a patent war between Apple and Samsung, after Samsung had implemented it.

    Does Nokia have a patent on 'double tap to wake'? A quick search of Google Patents didn't find anything relevant assigned to Nokia. (Not trying to make a point, just interested)

    There's a word for attitudes like that. Not a very nice one. Look at some statistics from the US patent office: List of top United States patent recipients - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I see just as much info on my Glance screen as I do on the Lock screen: Message notifications, battery state, details of next Calendar appointment etc.

    You know that if you pick up the phone or move it by holding it near the bottom it does *not* wake up the Glance screen? Just stay away from the camera.
