    I just can't get my head around this. You don't enable double tap to wake for the three phones you ship on the market directly with Windows 10, two of those are flagships. And you have it on insider unoficiall builds on older phones..

    Someone please explain this logic.

    I am guessing it's either hardware limitation or a feature they will add in in the future OS updates. But for now, lacking this feature doesn't affect me at all.

    I'm glad for you. It affects me a lot after 2.5 years on L520, a feature that was pretty much connected to the Lumia brand, now everyone has it but a few years ago it was a cool feature only Nokia had. Now their brand new phones don't have it.. Hardware limitation on 950 and 950xl? Lumia 520 is a power-house eh..

    As I recall it has something to do with the screen. If the screen supports it, then it should be enabled through OS updates, otherwise..

    Anyway, sorry you have to adapt to a new "style" of waking up your phone.

    I would wager "we're on a time crunch lets just ship and do the less important stuff later..."

    That's one possibility.

    I have read elsewhere, all peoples' speculation, that it is down to the screen type. The particular technology used in the new Lumia screens doesn't support the tap function when off or something. Seems to me that there should be an accelerometer workaround if that is indeed the case. I got used to having double tap to wake on my WP 8.1 HTC One M8 (and an Android tablet) and really miss it on the 950 XL.

    Wait. So there's no double tap to wake for the new phones? Ack. This is a deal breaker for me. ๐Ÿ˜•

    Seriously? Pressing the power button is much faster than double tapping your screen to unlock your phone.

    From what I understand, Microsoft made a decision not to implement this feature, believing that people would prefer Glance instead.

    As with most things in Windows 10, using the feeback app to suggest or upvote existing suggestions is a great idea. Items with more votes get more attention.

    Describing the lack of this feature as a "deal breaker" seems (at least to me) to be excessive. For me, it's nothing more than a very mild annoyance.

    I may have overreacted but using it with the 920, 1020, and 1520 have made me reliant on it (the G4 has the double tap to wake and sleep). It's a minor quibble but it was convenient. It's good that they didn't remove Glance. It's what made me steer clear of the 930.

    After much time with the 930, double tap was a bit hit and miss. The amount of times I double tapped with the phone in my left hand, only to have to do it a few times, bugged the hell out of me. On a hard service it worked ok. I gave up and used power button or Hey Cortana. I would rather have glance on my 950xl. Despite my band getting notifications, it's not always possible, when driving to get a sleeve pulled up. At least with glance I can tell if it's an email etc. Texts aren't an issue as she reads them out. I don't need to touch my phone when driving, and I check mails when stationary.

    Always worked for me on various Lumia devices since its introduction and frankly is one of the features I would not do without, especially on a windows phone. Clear reason for me to bypass these phones with that feature missing.

    I want to see you do that with one finger, while the phone is laying on a desk. No misplaced button can replace the tap. I up voted every chance I had, once I realized that the XL did not have it. That was Nov. 23, finally gave up sent it back in Jan. 2016.

    Wait a second my 2 year old 1520 has double tap plus glance plus visual voice mail plus gestures beta which I love and it's non existent in W10M non of these features made it on to the latest and greatest flagship by Microsoft which cost almost 700.00 except glance....not acceptable and I don't blame him. If it can be implemented in a 2 year old flagship there is absolutely no reason its not there in the current flagship and I think that's the part that's hard to swallow when you drop 7 bills on a phone.

    No, you have not, I had the XL first day, wonderful hardware. I just could not carry it, I was always tapping the screen. No misplaced button can replace the tap. Kept leaving it at home and carrying the 1020 w/8.1, still am. XL went back in Jan. All I wanted was a faster 1020, but no.
