    OnePlus 7T ambient display - Tap to wake and Pick to wake not working . I checked the previous threads and they are all marked closed . These functions were working for 3 days ans now it stopped completely . This kinda disappointing since the phone is just few days old . I have restarted , factory reset the phone multiple times but still the same issue . the older threads spoke about dialling *#808# and recalibrate the proximity sensor but sadly *#808# has been disabled by One plus .

    This Device has by default Tap to wake for the Under display fingerprint scanner, basically allows you to see time and a few info without waking whole screen.

    Though, you have options for Double Tap to wake screen too. It's here : Settings > Buttons & Gestures > Quick Gestures > Double Tap to wake up -- But it will disable the Tap to wake feature.

    To get lift up display or Tap to wake go here :
    Settings > Display > Under Customization - Ambient Display > Pickup your phone to show / Tap the screen to show -- again Tap the screen will disable the Double Tap feature.

    Started facing this issue since yesterday. Is this a hardware problem or software one? Do I need to get my phone replaced or something??

    if it stops working try to place screen under good lighting condition. I'm having same issue but it works fine by above method. The problem I think is with sensor,it only responds to bright light.

    You need to recalibrate the proximity sensor. Don't clean the top of the device too much or else the sensor will assume that the device is in your pocket or face down. Happened to me once. All I did was put it in my pocket for 20 minutes which calibrated the sensor. The display does not work unless it is in your pocket, or on your bed with front on bed or if you put your hand to cover its top(where camera and speakers are)

    Same problem for me. Ambient display randomly works. This is the most frustrating bug ever, because now I only get sound for new notification, when the phone is locked.

    I think oneplus 7T has under display proximity sensor below the front camera sensor. In bright sunlight you can able to see the sensor while your phone is in locked condition.

    I happened to try all of these settings numerous times . but the issue still remains. I also went ahead and factory reset the phone didn't help at all . I works alright during bright lighting conditions but for instance in a dim lit room , tap to wake or pick to wake doesn't work at all

    Well I'm using it all 3 works in night with almost little visibility, now if it's a software side issue then it should be reported and resolved, so I'd suggest to report it. Now, the devices are new thus, issue in display/sensors is something that would be the last case.
