Xperia XZ3 brings back ‘tap to wake’ (sort of)

For some inexplicable purpose, Sony Mobile eliminated the ‘double tap to wake’ characteristic from its telephones since 2017. The final Xperia phone to characteristic faucet to wake was the Xperia XZ. We’ve by no means understood the reasoning behind its elimination, notably because it used to be a regular Xperia characteristic yr after yr – and most different telephones as of late.

While the characteristic has not returned in its most easiest type, the Xperia XZ3 does deliver it back in a extra convoluted means. If you delve into the “Ambient display” choices and allow “Smart activation”, then double tapping the show will present the clock and notifications, double tapping once more will present the lock display screen. So the strategy is barely contrived, however it works. However, sadly, double faucet to sleep stays off the playing cards (for now a minimum of).
