    With android 4, it seems that tapping the screen would unlock the device and take straight to the homescreen (there is no pin or passcode on the device). Since android 5, tapping the screen just wakes up the display and shows the lockscreen, rather than the homescreen. Any idea if this can be changed?

    Thanks

    Go to settings - display - then the last option is "tap to wake up".

    Very handy option!

    Thanks, but this is already on. Still, it no longers allow me to bypass the lockscreen, and to end up directly on the homescreen after double tapping. I guess it's no longer possible to do so.

    Oh I see what you mean. Yes I have the same issue! It was better before lollipop. Now there is an extra step. Has anyone found a way around this?

    I'm still on kitkat and all double tapping does is wake the screen, I still have to unlock the phone.

    7plymaple, do you have another user account set up on your phone by any chance? I was wondering if it could be related (I have one). But maybe it's just because of how notifications work in lollipop.

    You must be using something more secure than slide to unlock no?

    There is a guest account that appeared after the lollipop update. I don't want it there but can't get rid of it. You might be onto something there.

    They made it so easy to open the camera from locked. Why would they add the extra step to unlock?

    You might consider an app like Delayed Lock that suppresses the lock screen based on conditions like a specific wifi logged in. That should allow the phone to wake up on last screen.

    Go into settings, then security, screen lock, then select none and when you double tap it goes straight to home screen

    There is no "none" option. And that would only get rid of the lock screen not the notification screen we're talking about here. Right now you are taken to a notification screen then the security screen where you have to at least swipe if not draw a pattern or put in a pin.

    It would be nice if the double tap would take you straight to the security screen.
