    I'm not sure what the "official" method is to wake up the phone when it's been sitting for a while. I know by pushing the power button and swiping the fingerprint sensor.

    But I also thought a double tap on the screen was another way to do it. But that only seems to work 50% of the time +/-. The front screen is clean and unobstructed when it happens.

    Another note - if I pick it up, shake it a little, then double tap the screen, it wakes up.

    So I guess I'm asking if I'm doing it right (to wake without picking up the phone), or missing a setting to make it more reliable, etc.

    Thanks.

    I have disabled the always on display and use double tap to wake and raise to wake. Both work without any issues for me.

    Double tap doesnt work for me at times as well. One instance I know it doesn't is when low power mode is on(which is understandable). I'll keep playing with it and try to figure out when it does it at other times.

    I have AOD enabled on this phone but on my P2 i did not. I noticed my double tap would not work if my phone was "laying upside down" as soon as spun it right right side up it would work.
