    Hopefully an honor rep can confirm, it would suck if they removed it

    I will confirm when I'm done with the setup game later today. Will edit my post and/or make a new one here about that. Very curious to know what the deal is here.

    (I just realized that you might have meant for those versions, I'm getting the version for the Americas.)

    Aw, it's because white is the color I wanted, that's all.

    Sorry, I went through all of the settings and there is no double tap to wake present.

    Thought I had read something on a German forum about it was now under "knuckle gestures" or something like that.
    Translating the page was kind of hit and miss for info.

    Glad to see you have the phone already Libra.
    Have fun and post more

    Frankly and just my afterthoughts...
    Double tap to wake is somewhat redundant with a finger print reader.
    I liked the FPS so much on my h5X that I never enabled double tap.

    More features are good however.
    A lot of us can appreciate double tap to wake for convenience.

    Problem for me is that the fps is on the back so it isn't useful when the phone is on a desk

    Not seeing any option to enable that. However, it has a setting to light up the screen when notifications come in.

    The g5 is another option... The international unlocked one has fallen to $400 before... But no usa warranty.

    Is that the thing that allows the screen to wake up when you pick up the phone?

    If so, not seeing anything

    Even though it has a setting to light up the screen when notifications come in, you have to set what apps that will give notifications on the lock screen. I have been getting notifications and I was wondering why my screen wasn't lighting up until I changed some apps to have notifications appear on the lock screen.

    I had to make sure to share that, or else it wouldn't work.

    Good to know, I like this approach as you can choose which apps you want to turn on the screen

    I'll wait little bit. Also interested in the Zenfone 3 Deluxe, i like the SD 821 SoC.

    That one costs a bit more than the honor 8 though.
