Fingerprint unlock

Is there any way to unlock the screen with double tap to wake or even better would be the fingerprint but so i don't have to press the PowerButton just to lay my finger on it? 

On my xiaomi mi mix when you put the finger on the fingerprint sensor it immediately lights up the screen,  there is no need to press the power button. 

It's really annoying to first press the PowerButton and then to use the finger...

Re: Fingerprint unlock

Hi @XperiaXZ1n,

 

You will need to wake the screen first, but there is no double tap to wake functionality.

What I do is register my thumbs fingerprint. When I want to unlock my phone I just tap the power button and leave my thumb there. It wakes, registers my fingerprint and unlocks.

Re: Fingerprint unlock

You can buy a Sony Style cover.

It wakens the screen when you open it.

The same can be achieved with any cover by putting a little magnet in it. (on the rignt spot)

Magic opening!

Re: Fingerprint unlock

Yeah I know about the cover but it's just not my style, i rather like to use a simple case and a protective glass. 

 

Yeah I know how to use the fingerprint, it just bothers me that I have to press the PowerButton. Most of the time it enters the camera if used like that, so i had to disable double press power button to enter camera. 

Right now i don't use fingerprint at all, it's completely useless and annoying as it is now, for me. 

Thanks anyway.

Re: Fingerprint unlock

Has to check XDA xz1 forums to see any Available custom ROMs having these functionality double tap to wake..

 

Anyway my solution is just use ok Google command.. that wakes up screen and then use fingerprint to unlock so no need to press power button... And I also set phone unlock for known locations in the settings which I set multiple locations of the same area which makes phone stay unlock even when location jumps. Thus a ok Google command is enough to wake up phone . 

Just we don't wish to say ok Google when in public place ..
