Wake HTC One M8 by Double Tapping on the Screen

Edited by Thor, Ash0hley, Jen M

Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video we are going to show you how to wake up a HTC One M8 by double tapping the screen. You must have the Launch Gestures turned on in the settings menu, in order to use this function. They allow us to activate the phone simply by touching the screen. The default setting on the HTC One M8 is that these are turned on. If you turned them off for any reason, you will need to access them again, in order to use this function. You can find video tutorials on how to use the motion Launch Gestures and how to access their settings on this website. Take a look at these if you need any help.

    Sometimes, it can be a little difficult to do this, as the screen doesn't always respond to our fingers. We need to be sure to press quite hard, while tapping on the screen. Let's double tap on the screen.
