    Default Moto X Camera wrist flick

    I just bought this phone and the camera wrist flick to activate the camera was working perfectly with screen on and off. Now it only works when the screen is on and I have relentlessly tried doing it with the screen off making me look like a fool in public. Any help on how to get this feature back and working?

    Thanks

    Factory reset, or look around the settings. Thats my advice. Haven't played with the Moto X yet.

    It'll skip your lock screen, to view any images before you've open the app, you'd require the pin/lock... Just like other Androids and iPhones..

    As for the issue, sorry. I'd try the reset, maybe it learned how you normally flicked it and that's why?

    I too was perplexed on getting the gesture for the camera working consistently. I read elsewhere that it was two consistent wrist flicks. I call shenanigans on that. From my on experimentation, three wrist flicks works a charm every time. Hope this helps.

    Two is all it takes. I guess three doesn't hurt but your doing an extra one for no reason.

    Try flicking it 3 times. Even though it says only twice, I found that 3 times is the real secret sauce - 100% success rate for me with 3 flicks.

    I haven't been able to get this to consistently work for me. I've given up and tried getting carpal tunnel in the process! I just use the widget on the lock screen. It's just as fast.

    Its very smooth motion it really easy people are just complicating this motion . I would suggest you to see marques brownlee YouTube video " moto x features explained" to get it right ..I saw his video and I just do it like him ..it works always 100% without any special effort

    I agree. People think it has to be this fast sudden movement. I've been seeing how slow it can be done and it can be done slow

    Works fine for me. I think people just need to get the hang of it.

    I have read in lot of reviews that it surprisingly worked consistently for them ..and it does work well for me .. please don't give false impressions without actually using the phone.

    I saw the geek on his video show try it 4 times and it never worked for him. He said it works sometimes but not all the time.

    Every time I try to drive a car with my mouth it goes badly. Am I doing it wrong or is the car faulty?

    But you haven't actually tried it yourself, right?
