    Default How to get knock on to work 100%

    I usually can get knock on to work about 90% of the time, but that other 10% would be really frustrating and I would have to try like 3 or 4 times before it worked.

    However I think I finally figured it out. I've been testing it for a few days to make sure it actually worked 100 percent of the time. Double tap at the bottom of the screen right above the LG logo (where the home button would be if you have the three button layout). It has worked for me every single time since I started using this location.

    I will try this and get back to you in a couple of days

    Update: Used it for 8 hours.. success rate 99% (There was a time where I was hitting the little space in between the LG logo and the Screen because I have the black version and I cant really tell in low light lol... shouldnt be a problem for white phones)

    This is just for knock on, knock off is good pretty much anywhere.

    Nice. Thanked.

    I had moments where I got frustrated and used the power button.

    This "tip" isn't working for me. For me tapping in the normal spot on the phone (middle area) works pretty much all the time. Any time I tried the "LG logo" way, it never opened/closed.

    Hmm, I don't know, maybe try what the quoted post below suggests because I have recalibrated my phone a few times just because. Whenever I knock on the phone this way, I'm usually holding the phone with one hand and I just use my thumb. Once I figured out it worked for me it made using the phone one handed so much easier.

    Yes, I've recalibrated a few times. This may be the reason I've been able to find this sweet spot, but even if that's not the reason and others haven't recalibrated, I hope it makes using the phone easier for people.

    Thanks for this. Tapping above the LG logo is working 100% of the time for me. Great find!

    In my experience so far, double knocking the centre of the screen is the last reliable way.

    Tapping near the top seems more reliable, but tapping at the bottom as suggested by the OP is best of all.

    I've been using that spot for a while now but every once in a while my phone seems to fall into deep sleep and I have to hit the actual button or tap at least 8-10 times to wake up the phone. Never have any trouble tapping to sleep the phone though.

    So what's the trick? I've been tapping all around the LG logo to no avail. No on or off happens. All tapping in that area does is cause my finger to accidentally hit one of the shortcut "buttons" located above said logo.

    Tapping the top notification bar is much easier as is tapping center of screen..at least on my phone.

    He means that you tap in that area when it's locked

    This is just for knock on. I don't have any issue with knock off, nor do most people, most people that have issues are having issues with knock on.

    Ahhh...based on that, I still have no issues with knock on at all. Of course now that I have the LG smart case, know on isn't necessary much any more. I just flip of the case and process doing what I need to do.

    LG should just allow swipe to wake like Blackberry. That's probably the most intuitive on/off feature I have ever seen on any device, followed by knock on display.
