    Default Other ways of unlocking the home screen?

    I hope it's ok to ask what may seem to you be silly questions & I don't get the "rtfm" replies. I've only had the device a week & I'm still getting used to it despite having an S3 before (RIP).

    Just wanted to know what other ways there are to unlock the note when the screen is off & locked. I can wave my hand across it to wake it up & see what notifications I have but I still have to press one of the buttons to show the unlock screen. Is there another way?

    Also, when I joined here, I just used my google + so how do I log on with the Android Central app so I can use that to post?

    Thanks for reading.

    You can unlock using s voice ("hi Galaxy " ) with the screen off. This may not be enabled by default so you may need to set it up.


    Otherwise you would need to press either the home or power buttons.

    If you have notifications, like emails, use the drop down screen to unlock by touching the email.

    Works for me.

    Just log out of Android Central and instead of touching Google + to log in, see enter user name (Rubus Roo) and a password. You may need to start a Mobile Nations Passport account.
    Also worth downloading Tapatalk app or AC Forums app for uploading shots.

    I use Gravity Screen too. Works pretty well. Also, Tapatalk is really nice.

    I thought this question was on a hiding to nothing, as we say.
    Amazing what turns up.
    Gravity Screen!
