How  I can wake up this phone in my car holder?

No pawer button visible, no finger . 

Is it safe every time I drive to remove it from the holder?

Re: How to double tap to sleep xa2ultra

Not only is it helpful it prevents premature failure of the buttons. In my previous phone I just picked it up or waved my hand over the screen to make it light up. I twisted my wrist to activate the camera when it was locked. When I push the button twice for the camera, it doesn't work more often than it does and I miss the photo opportunity by the time I can get the camera to work. This is a big issue for my job duties and is really frustrating.

@Baltojo in order to quickly launch camera, you can always press and hold the camera button. it always works, even when the display is off.

Re: How to double tap to sleep xa2ultra

Hello everyone, sorry for the late reply!

@Pepinov, if you are able to access the fingerprint on the back of your device, you can hold your finger there and the device will unlock and the screen will turn on. I would however not recommend using your device while driving.

@Baltojo, as @najodleglejszy mentioned, try holding the camera button pressed for a short or tap it once then tap it again for a photo to be taken, depending on how you set the button up.

If you want to take a photo directly, open up the Camera application > cogwheel > More > Quick launch, choose the action you want to perform.

@KikaPochemuchka, I'll make sure to forward your feedback internally and the feedback from the other users as well! Slightly smiling Face

Have a great day everyone!

@Pepinov, it wasn't meant to be a solution, just a recommendation. I'm not sure about your country, but in the region (the Nordics) where I'm situated it's against the law to use your device while driving.

Have you checked if there is another car holder available for your device that does not cover the fingerprint sensor? That could also work.

Re: Double tap to wake xperia XA2 ultra

Hi @Rocío10, welcome to our forum!

Your question has been translated to English as this is an International forum, please post any replies in English and it will be easier for me and other users to assist you.

The option to wake your screen by double tapping it is not available in the Xperia XA2 Ultra, that is why you have no been able to find it in the screen settings.

I hope that answers your question!
