Default Knock-on sometimes unresponsive

Does anyone else have the problem that sometimes your phone requires some real bitch-slapping to wake up via knock on? Sometimes it wakes right up but most if the time I have to knock five or six times.

I've tried knocking at different locations and at different intervals but I can't figure out the trick.

I don't have problems with knock on at all. In my case I've found that taping really quickly actualy reduces the sucess rate. Try moderae taps at stedy paste. Also if you cover proximity sensor it won't work. My guess is that it's a "pocket safety" feature to prevent self wake up.

A little bit of practise and you'll get there

No problem at all here, just like double-clicking a mouse

but from my experiment, the center area is more responsive than the side, try it with light tap
