    Seems after my phone sets idle for very long I sometimes have to tap 4or 5 times to wake the screen,have also noticed that after a day of uptime lag its terrible when using tap to wake. Anyone else seeing this?

    No. Never had that problem. What carrier do you have? They all appear to have slightly different defaults.

    No problems here. I tap her, she wakes.

    Tap your home screen background. Possibly the status bar.

    Anyone have the issue keeping the screen on after you double tap to wake with knock on? My screen stays on for two milliseconds while I try to tap to unlock (if I go this route)... It isn't doing it right this minute but it was doing it earlier...

    I believe you've got to tap in certain way. Could you be leaving too long an interval between taps?

    For those who are NOT having any problems with tap to wake. Do you have a screen protector on your phone? Wondering if it could be causing sensitivity to be decreased.

    Nope. This only thing I could think of is that one of the sensors on the front of the phone keeps getting covered up cause it doesn't happen all of the time...

    You may try to lick your fingers (moisturize) first before waking her up.

    I have the tempered glass screen protector and I do find I usually have to tap 4-5 times to wake it up. However a quick tap on the home screen and it's asleep again.

    No problems with it, but I have the stock plastic strip on my screen still. It's coming off really soon!

    My LG G3 is turning on with one tap instead of two. I'm not sure how to get it back to a double tap.
