How to unlock screen

I want to switch to Win10 from Android but my main issue is the gesture to unlock my phone.
I dont use a passwort or fingerprint, I just "draw a line" ony the screen and the phone is unlocked.
Is it possible at Win10 too? I dont want to type a pin just to check my missed calls. Btw, I want to buy a 650.

there is only one way to unlock windows phone that is to swipe up the screen , or through windows hello in high end devices. You can view the notification of any missed calls or messages without unlocking your phone by swiping down from the top to bring up the action center.

Also there are no other gestures other than swiping up to unlock windows phone devices. Your lumia 650 do not support either fingerprint or windows hello , you can wake the phone up by using double tap to wake but in order to unlock you will have only one gesture to perform or use and that is swiping up . Lumia 650 is a great device to have, welcome to windows mobile. :)
