    If someone can please let me know what I'm doing wrong with the Double Tap to wake and sleep I'd appreciate it?!

    I did go into Settings, Display and turned on KnockON but the screen is still not sleeping nor waking up ugh.

    I did install a Gravity screen where it sleeps if I lay it down and wakes when I pick my phone up but it'd be nice to wake it up with the Double Tap without picking it up.

    Thank you in advance!
    Maybe your fingers are to small to register on the screen

    Yeah, it's Nova. Double tap only works with the LG home
    Not true...double tap works fine with my V20 using NOVA

    From what I'm reading, if the settings are correct for that, then the FPS is deactivated when double tapping the home screen to lock. Next 3D is like this too.

    For those that like to use the stock LG messaging app I looked everywhere trying to find how to adjust the size of the text in conversations. Turns out you just open a conversation and pinch in or out to increase or decrease the font size! I found the default 100% size a little to big.

    Also there is a extra feature under the location settings menu called Qualcomm iZat that should help improve battery life and GPS performance in certain conditions. It is disabled by default. Just enabled my self so gonna keep a eye on battery life and see how it impacts it.

    Oh jeez. You know what I did? I overlooked the POINT 5. I chose 5X, why should I be surprised the phone was going so slow. LMAO

    Never mind. Carry on wayward sons and daughters...

    You can change it in the settings on nova. Go to gestures and inputs and the double tap. Set to screen lock

    Does double tap the down volume button to open camera only work when the screen is off? That's really the only way I've gotten it to work. When the screen is on, i can only get it to adjust volume.

    I just flat disabled mine. Got tired of deleting things like pictures of the ground, the inside of my pocket, my hand, etc from all the accidental double taps.

    For those that have LG gallery app.

    - view the picture you want.
    - hit setting, top right corner
    - add signature.

    Simple. Better than use third party app.

    I am running Nova launcher on my phone and I had to go into the settings within the app and turn on the double tap function to wake up and lock the phone. Hopes this helps.

    To capture photos from video, enable "screen shot" button on video player. It's in the settings while the video player is open.

    After you capture all the photos you want from a video, they'll show up in your album sideways. In settings in the screen shot folder with all the photos, you can choose to rotate them all at once instead of one by one.

    I did this but it tells me I have to use PIN when it wakes up to unlock the phone and that the finger print scanner isnt good enough. Something about phone adminstrator which I had to enable to let Nova lock the screen.

    You can adjust the DPI/scaling of the entire display. The default is a bit to large IMO and looks much better on the lower setting. Settings>Display>Display Size.

    yeah, I wanted to try it for a couple of days.. and I got used to it, but I just switched it back to normal (with an app drawer)
    I tried to find the app drawer on my own when i got this phone yesterday but had to do a search to find it. Prefer the home screen with the app drawer.

    One thing I LOVE is last night I discovered the little crop tool-works almost like the S Pen did. I wish the S7 Edge had this feature.
