    I'm having same problem. It happens when I don't touch the phone for a couple hours. Pressing the power button wakes it... But what's the point of double tap if I have to touch the power key.. I am on the latest update.

    When your fingerprint scanner is greyed out and not green, it means it is disabled because of too many failed attempts to unlock is via the fingerprint scanner.
    It seems like you are excidently touching the fingerprint scanner in your pocket.

    no that gray thing happens as well randomly too. it's an android thing. It randomly forces you to use password for god knows why randomly even if you dont touch the finger print. I know this because i had my phone on the table the whole time and came back and it was grayed out. had to type pw in.

    I don't remember gestures ever working while phone dialer is open.

    I use exkernel and it always works to tap to wake sleep to sleep to check the time

    When I update to pie I'll see if this is an issue later.

    Same problem. Single or double tap to wake is glitchy. I am starting to get really pissed of with the software and hardware shortcomings of the OP6T.

    Uh have you considered reading up about rooting with exkernel. I am on Pie on Op5T and I can tap to wake and sweep to slleep easily. also sweep left or right to wake or sleep.

    I do not want to root just yet. I just need to software to work as it is.

    Another case where ambient screen works randomly, although "Tap screen to show" is enabled, in Settings->Display->Ambient display

    I prefer to tap the screen, rather than pressing the power button

    I am facing the same problem. Sometimes in single tap also the display does not respond and i am not able to see the time screen as well.

    Why is this crap not working again after a recent update. This is absolutely pathetic. Fix the double tap issue asap. One plus developing into one crap.

    I've always had this random problem, it's not something that just started after updating to 11, been troublesome on my phone for several years
