Hi all,

doesn anyone know an App that allows our Moto E to wake up using the volume buttons?
I triev Power Button to Volume Button app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pp.powervolume) but it turned out to be a battery killer

You can use xposed module for it
And many ROM supported it already

I forgot to state that I prefer not to root the phone at this stage, but I did some research and found that rooting the phone and installing the xposed module is the best solution. (Reason: apparently changing the binding of a physical key at system level requires root permissions and existent apps actually listen all the time for the key in background, causing battery drain.)

Thanks for the hint anyway

Finally I made the choice to unlock the bootloader and root the phone.
I went straight installing xposed and gravity box module. Applying all my customizations, including the volume button wake up and the double tap standby, was a absolutely a breeze.

Why don't you try "Pocket Lock" app which uses the sensors to wake up...!!
Please hit thanks if you find helpful.
