    I have a question about knock code, if you have it enabled and knock in the correct sequence, will it actually unlock the device or just turn the screen on, ready for pin code or pattern etc?

    Cheers

    If I'm not mistaken, it unlocks the device completely.

    It unlocks the device to the home screen. You can do it with the screen on or off. I have been in the habit of double tapping my phone screen right away when I take it out of my pocket or pick it up so I usually do the knock code with the screen on already. Same way it was on my G3.

    On my G2, with screen off, If the Knock Code feature is on, I cannot Knock On (double tap to turn screen on), even if I double tap not in the area of the of the four squares.
    I can only do the code and it unlocks the screen to home screen.
    You can however turn the screen with the power button, and only then do the code.

    With it off however, you can double tap to turn the screen on, and use or not use another form of password or PIN.

    You can knock your code directly with the display off and it will unlock your phone right to the home screen. I do it all the time on my G3.

    The knock code replaces the PIN, although the PIN is used as a backup if you forget your knock code.

    Perfect, thanks for the replies.

    Is there anyway that knock code could be used for password authentication on apps (think TouchID on iOS)?
