Just thought I'd share with you all a little something I found. You can double tap the notification bar to lock or unlock your phone, without needing to use the power button

Double tap on/off with the G2, Flex and now G3 is one of the cool features LG has been doing.

Download Screen Off from the play store and set it to open this app when you double tap in Nova.

Tweaksbox also has a double tap home setting. I use that to turn off the screen.
