    I while back somewhere I read that you could hover your hand near the phone, and it would wake up and give you a preview screen (time, new text msgs, etc). Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Now that I have one I can't seem to find the thread where I first read this.

    I think I recall seeing a video about that.

    I only remember them swiping their hand across the top of the phone and it would show up - but only intermittently. I think they mentioned that bright or dark rooms might mess with that function.

    Do you have the phone to try it?

    Found it. It's disabled by default, need to go to settings/motion to enable.
