    Anyone else experiencing this?

    I can't get used to the on-screen buttons or the volume/power buttons on the back (I'm still using this with a Note 4, and I've been a Samsung user since the S2, so...), but by Zeus, the double tap to wake thing is addicting! Haha. I find myself trying to turn the Note 4 on (or off) with the double tap so often now!

    Double tap to wake is so natural, it makes you wonder why other devices don't have it. I hate that my Nexus 7 doesn't have it naturally, especially with how horrible the power button is placed.

    Only problem is double tap doesn't work to turn off the screen with Themer And I really don't like LG's UI (reminds me too much of TouchWiz...the older versions, which is worse). So having the power button in the back when having your phone on the table is really a PITA now, but oh well, at least it's there to wake up, glance at the notifications on the lockscreen, turn back off with a couple taps. Genius.

    I experienced this last year when I got my G3. I now double tap EVERY device I get my hands on, lol! I lost my swipe left to text and right to talk with Samsung but gained double tap on/off with LG. Good trade off!

    You can't double tap on the launcher to make the phone sleep because that a feature of the launcher, not the system. The default LG launcher had to double tap to sleep and third party launchers like Nova and Action Launcher will let you define a double tap gesture.

    To make your phone sleep by double tapping, double tap the status bar.

    What's even better is with Nova & Apex when you assign a gesture make it an app called screen off.

    There you have it as it is on the Stock Lg launcher.

    Like the others said, you can use a different launcher like Nova. I would use Nova, but I am too accustomed to a tap to wake on my M8 that I would rather have that than some of the things that come with Nova.

    I just installed a launcher I have been using for a while and knock code still works. Zeam Launcher is the one I use, the lightest launcher out.

    Why? It's very useful... Not sure if there's a setting for that though, haven't delved into it too much.

    Left to text, right to call...I'll miss that Samsung feature, the LG's is clunky.

    Love the back buttons tho, got used to them instantly...love the tap too. Great phone but like the phone & contacts interface on the Samsung MUCH better.

    I do enjoy it. Double tap to wake works really well on the g4. Not so much on the g2 and g pad 8.3.
