    Anyone using the screen on gesture? With fingerprint unlock and third party app Screen Off And Lock I never use any of the physical buttons. Hope the screen on gesture gets a little better though...you may have to try it a few times to get it to work...especially if you're holding the phone in your hand.

    Good question...I cannot find it right now but I know when I set this thing up from scratch that it was an option??? I use it all the time. With the phone sitting face up on a table or desk you just swipe your palm up and down...mostly length wise...and the screen turns on..lights up! I suppose the proximity sensor is picking up the gesture. Keep your hand close to the phone without touching the screen. It also works while holding the phone but you have to keep it still for a few seconds before it will work. I will try to find the setting again. I'm on Verizon.
