  6. 6
    Scroll down and tap on "Motion Launch gestures" in the "GESTURES" section
    .
    What this option does is it allows us to turn the phone on just by touching the screen. We just need to touch the screen when the phone is in sleep mode. We can turn this option on or off because it can sometimes be frustrating if we accidentally turn the phone on by picking it up, and we don't want it to do that.

  7. 7
    Tap the checkbox next to "Motion Launch gestures, Allow Motion Launch gestures to wake screen"
    .
    As we said before, we can wake the screen by tapping on it or swiping it, and these allow us to open applications and use the phone. They're quite useful. There is a green box with a white checkmark in it. This means the option is turned on.
