Double-tap screen to unlock not really working after update.

    wallflowerface , Jun 7, 2016 :

    Although the update made my phone WAY faster, my double-tap to unlock the screen doesn't work 80% of the time. I have the "home" button set to double-tap to lock. I also have a case but I keep my phone open on my desk and just go back and forth from double-tapping the screen to the button.

    Does anybody have any ideas on what to do to fix this? It's really annoying to have to keep picking up my phone to unlock it either with the side button or by flipping my case back and forth....

    Ah okay, I just read on another post that the gestures is a common problem. So I guess we wait for a fix for now?

    For me everything is ok. Have you done a clean installation? Or a reset after the update?

    If I turn the option off and then back on again (under gestures) it works for a few hours.
    I am presuming that this conflicts with some other setting that is taking precedence.
    However, as I have gotten used to waking the phone in this manner, it is a huge inconvenience.

    I have the exact same problem and it's one of the features I use the most to unlock my phone! Really annoyed by this, for me the double tap only works after rebooting and then it only works the first time, after closing my one plus cover it doesn't function anymore!

    I wonder if this has to do something with the light sensor!

    same problem here and i was glad the update solved a couple of issues (ie unlocking camera but camera doesn't come on and a MUCH better fingerprint scanner...can do sideways scan now)......but this (2TAP-UNLOCK) is a BIG ISSUE. 99% of the time i just double tap to unlock and now i can't....ONEPLUS, please release a FIX A.S.A.P. i just recommended the OP2 to my younger brother yesterday and i think i will retract it. unhappy customer!

    After update, double tap to awake didn't work for me, all other were working, sleep, skip, etc. i turned gestures off and on, it started working.

    Under Settings > Gestures, unticking and then ticking 'Double tap to wake' gets it working again and it continues to work until I close the [official OnePlus] flipcase.

    Double tap to wake is working for me but when i double tap to lock ( using action launcher) i cant unlock with fp, only the pin code unlocks it then.

    Same here, I found that restarting the phone will enable it again for a while. Haven't found the cause to why it stops (after unlocking/locking, being in the pocket while buttons are pushed, something else?)...
