Double Tap to Wake comes to Lumia 520 with Lumia Black

Sorry if this was posted before. A friend just updated to the Lumia Black on his 520 (Yes, its being pushed right now) and he has got the awesome Double Tap to wake feature. It is working as it should and the device responds in time.

So the conclusion is that Double Tap is coming to all of the low range Lumia phones as well and is not limited to 625 and 720 as some were predicting. Let’s wait for more 🙂

    Hi Narender Not very often with two but THREE quick ones seems to work!!

  • john jones

    Thank you Narender. Works sometimes!!

    • Actually that’s strange. If you have a Nokia Care center nearby, I’d advice you to get your device checked. For me, its just two very soft touches. Like touch it the softest that you can and it will still wake up.

    Same problem. Selected in settings but no luck. Is it two gentle or hard taps?

    • Its pretty gentle for me. Unlike the Asha 5xx series, the tap is sensed via the screen itself. So it should be gentle only.
      If it is not working, try a little bit harder towards the middle of the screen.
