    Was that a Nokia add on? Probably disappeared with the merger like many of the other Nokia apps.
    Not Nokia. It was Microsoft taking advantage of SensorCore phones. Gestures Beta

    Am curious about this double tap to wake feature. Seems totally unnecessary. How is it simpler/better than just pressing the side button? What am I missing?
    It becomes a habit and you use it. It becomes indispensable if you use your phone in a cradle in your car.

    Liked ur take on all the features rromerof, and as i have already told in my earlier post that i have already put this on the microsoft feedback page....Ignoring the call abruptly shuts down the call...the caller may seem u deliberately cut the call, so it will be easy if ur using ur phone and a call comes up, u can just choose to look away and continue with wat ever ur doing on ur phone then ignore the call..

    LED notifications are a nightmare for me. As a taxi business owner, and driving myself, I find the LED flashing VERY distracting. It sits there flashing away, and sooner, or later, you just have to check it otherwise it just continues. I was told once to choose a colour for different notification. You then end up on the M25 trying to remember what colour means what, and there it is again, nagging you, tempting you to deal with it and running the chance of bumping in to the Traffic Police for using your phone whislt driving, just to kill the damned thing.

    Glance is way better. But then again, so is Cortana. Glance just sits there, with your notification highlighted, but not nagging you to deal with it. Then after inactivity, glance fades away. I have no reason to check notifications all the time because if it's a text or call from the office, Cortana is hard to beat. For any other stuff, my band 2 takes care of it. A quick glance and I know whether it is spam or work related.

    My biggest beef is double tap to wake. I jump from phone to phone at work. We've got 14 devices for drivers etc.My 'flagship' is missing the best feature of the 640's, 640xl's 930 etc...Very frustrating when I grab my 950xl and sit there like an ***** tapping the screen
    True the led notification can sometimes be very annoying especially during the night when ur trying to sleep...but their are some advantages too like when the battery goes below 10% it goes red and when u put it on charge and it reaches100% it goes green without the need of checking the phone if it has reached 100%..

    There are some features which has to be on windows 10 without any delay, pls add these on ur next build
    1) Led Notification support: This is very important as one cant check the phone all the time to see if their is any missed call or messages
    2)Double Tap To Wake Up: This feature was much loved in the 8.1 version then why remove this on the windows 10, bring it back
    3)Vibrate on pickup: This feature is present on most of the phones nowadays, when their is some missed calls or new messages or any other notification, when the phone is lifted the phone vibrates indicating that there are some notifications ready for you.
    4)Glance Screen: Glance screen is a gr8 feature but what will make it more useful is the feature that will make it flash every 10 seconds when there are some missed calls or any other notifications which will be quite useful when we cant reach our phones and can see the notification flash from far away, instead of going near and checking the glace screen by swiping our palm over proximity sensor.
    5)Battery Indicator: Indicate the percentage of battery on the screen itself so that their is no need of swiping down the menu bar.
    6)Charging On Switch Off Mode: This is surprisingly not present on lumia 950xl, this has to be added as charging the phone on switch off mode is a very common feature, the phone automatically switches on.
    7)Pick Up Accent Colour From Background: Automatically pickup accent colour from background is a feature present on the windows 10 desktop then why not the mobile, pls add this great personalisation feature.
    8)Incoming Call Screen Management: When we are using our phone and suddenly a incoming call comes up, whole screen is occupied by the caller screen and one cant use the back button or home button or complete the pending work or just close the application you were working on, so instead of covering the whole screen it would be wise if only a part of the screen is covered so that if the call isnt important we can just continue with our work.
    Add all these feature and the windows 10 will be the best platform, at least add some of these features.
    Firstly, where is the poll option 'None of the Above'?

    1 - Not all phones have LED's.

    2 - Again, not all phones support this yet for Windows 10 Mobile.

    FAQ - Does my Lumia support double tap to wake up? - Microsoft - USA

    3 - Surely Glance screen notifies you of this?

    4 - Flashing Glance screen will be distracting and no doubt drain the battery.

    5 - You can get the battery indicator to display a percentage and you then just swipe down to see it, as said.

    6 - My 950XL charges just fine when switched off. Use a USB cable, not the wall plug charger.

    7 - Could be interesting but again, no real need.

    8 - Not sure if this would change. The argument being that you might miss an important call if it did.

    Abhinav, you mentioned you came from Samsung and Motorola and Android. Clearly your move was because Android was possibly not 'the best platform' that you think Windows Mobile will suddenly become with the addition of these eight features (your own words).

    Windows 10 Mobile has far more important needs that need addressing other than yours. It's good that you mentioned this as feedback to Microsoft but understand that Windows Mobile is not Android or iPhone. It won't have features you will commonly find in either and posting topics like this won't make Microsoft change their mind or update it.

    It may not have all the applications or features we are used to in other platforms but what it does have is fine with me and I wouldn't go back to Android or iPhone for any of the eight features mentioned. Not everyone needs them, not all phones support them and Microsoft knows this.

    Nxt time i will keep the option of None Of The Above for ppl like you who dont encourage change and want to stick to the tried and tested formula....You cant segregate features according to platforms like Windows, iOS or android...smart features are features that any phone can have it is not bad to wish for something that can make the UI more interesting for ppl like you there is always the option of disabling those features which u most probably wont use...
    And yeah for ur kind information pls dont categorize ppl as newcomers, attention seeking(y so much of negativity, chill dude)...ur no one to judge i had lumia 920 used it for good 1 yr then went to other platforms...so its homecoming for me...It was just an opinion and ideas from an excited, well wisher of windows 10.

    Hello Abhinav.

    Thanks for replying.

    I didn't mean to sound as negative as I did. I apologise. I am all for change for Windows 10 Mobile, and some of your features are worthwhile, but right now, let's be honest, there are much bigger things that it needs. I guess what I am saying is that let's fix the bigger issues first then the smaller ones should be a cinch.

    I've been with all mobile platforms except BlackBerry. For me, not sure about yourself, Windows Mobile just feels good to use. None of the other platforms give me that. I don't mind about the app gap or anything like that. Most apps are junk anyway. I guess my reply came across as a little too harsh and for that, again, I apologise, your suggestions are good and all feedback is welcomed.

    Respect.
    But "none of the above" is democracy, not that we don't want change anything as you claim now, or that we are against all changes.
    That means "none of above", that's all! Take it easy!
    Priorities are others, for most of the people. That's clear....
    Next time, try with a "Another: please specify" ;)

    What??? Double tap to wake up is removed?? I used it extensively on my Lumia 920. Since it got stolen, I'm on Lumia 520 and didn't know the feature was taken away! I'd be so so much disappointed if I was using my 920 now!

    It's not removed so much as it has not been enabled on any of the devices built for W10M. I still have it in my 1520 and my 640 running W10M.


    There's some interesting wording here which wouldn't be used if it were a hardware constraint

    The following Lumia devices currently do not support double tap to wake up:
    ◦Lumia 550
    ◦Lumia 650
    ◦Lumia 650 Dual SIM
    ◦Lumia 950
    ◦Lumia 950 Dual SIM
    ◦Lumia 950 XL
    ◦Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM

    If you would like to give feedback about this feature, please use the Windows Feedback app.
    Notice it says "does not currently support", and then leads the reader to use the feedback app. My guy in Espoo told me that the wording here is intentional and exact. But you can make your own mind up about that...

    I just dont get it people?? You know that The double tap to wake has to be added from the hardware like glance right? I got it on my lumia 535 and most people dont have it on lumia 950 well an update to the phone cant solve this because it lacks the hardware to do it not the software and yes not only i tried to see if it works(since i dont use it) but now it didnt eve require a restart ^_^!! so calm down people if the phone has it Windows 10 does support it its said that it even supports LED but no lumias have LED notifications :3 so dont complain for hardware things.... like add it on lumia 950 or the XL because its too late!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the clarification. Makes sense for those features to not be added if it is done at the hardware level.

    Oh yes, got it! But why do they strip out the features that are useful and then wait for people to give feedback? It's ridiculous!
    Guess, no one has answer to this. They been doing this for ages. Changing brand names and removing features seems to be Microsoft's hobby!

    what we need is a better hacker community, seriously, that tap thing is just a copy-paste away from every phone

    maybe Nadella could make this thing more flexible-open, it doesn't have much going for it nowadays so at least he could extend his Linux-gnu software love to this matter and lessen the suffering on the remaining fans-enthusiasts

    Watching the polling trend....Their is high demand for Double Tap To Wake Up with high majority....(For now will make do with the double tap the navigation bar to switch off feature)
    2nd highest is a close call between the LED notification support and The Charging on switch off mode...
    3rd and 4th Spot is shared by Battery Indicator and Pick up accent colour respectively...
    Vibrate on pickup is a total noo

    Is my phone messed up? My Nokia 830 with latest fast ring 10m still wakes up when I double tap it on the screen. I was planning on hard reset, but if I have to give up DDTW, then I don't want to do that.

    The feature should remain present after reset. It has for me on 2 devices (1520/640).

    It's not removed from W10M. It has not been added into the firmware of made for W10M devices (950XL/950/650/550).

    I tried it. I just couldn't figure out the big fuss. I could see it in the car scenarios that others mentioned. But sitting on my desk, it just isn't a burden to press the side button.

    When I used a Galaxy a month ago, the notification LED had its perks. From across the room I could see whether I had a text message (and from whom or what app, depending on how I configured it) or whether it was fully charged.
