    Just noticed that on my G6 the power button doesn't always turn the screen off when you press it, sometimes, may be one in ten, it requires a press or two more. Is this normal or a possible hardware issue? How is yours? Please let me know..

    Few, if any, things associated with phones and computers have 100% reliability. You may have not hit it right or maybe not long enough. As long as it keeps working I would just go with it, as you can't really do anything if it is a hardware failure.

    I normally double tap the status bar, however I think I have noticed that a few times. First, the button sometimes seems to give slightly before pushing in all the way to activate, so it requires a firm press. Second, it's possible to press the button and rewake with fingerprint if your finger hovers at the button.

    I usually double tap the screen to wake it (when it's on my desk) otherwise i either put my finger to directly unlock it or double tap it to see my lock screen (because man i love my wallpaper on there :P)


    Edit: why is this thread in the accessories bit of the forums though......

    I know it's not the same iteration, but my LG G4's Power button, I feel, was sometimes like this. Maybe I pressed it too fast, or it didn't register fully for some odd reason... I would say that if it's a rare or not likely occurrence, as you say, it's probably not an issue. Like another user stated, these things happen with technology. Odds are, something won't work 100% of the time.

    Mine is the same. I assumed that what happens is sometimes it locks but immediately recognizes my fingerprint and unlocks again. I try to remember to use a different finger to lock :-)

    I use it when my g6 is on a table which is quicker than picking it up and pressing the finger scanner on the back.
    Also i don't get how it's slow.... it's as fast as you can knock it lol :P

    Normal, totally normal for the G6. I've had 3 and all 3 did the same thing. Most often works but if you don't depress completely (or if you press it even slightly to the side) it won't turn on/off.

    Sometimes its not the sensor itself....do you work with anything that might make you fingerprint hard to read?

    On work i wash my hands like 5-6 times a day.. So only that, maybe from dust.. And sweat, my hands are sweaty because it's very hot here.. I now took the ear cleanner put some alcohol on it and clean all over the sensor and now is fine.. Yeah maybe it's not but these red sentence says sensor needs to be cleaned.

    Double tap screen to turn off/sleep and double tap again to turn the screen back on/wake. Very handy feature, I find myself trying to tap other phones to wake them up now though....

    LOOL I do that too! When I first got my Honor 8 after having my LG G3, I double tapped the screen a couple of times. 😜

    Knock code is the code you use to unlock your screen not to turn it on that's just a double tap for on/off
    Knock code is found in your lock screen settings can be configured to be as many taps as you want and however you want in the 4 "tap squares".

    I tried to use a knock code on my G3 but double tap was so much easier to remember... 😜.
