Default Knock on

Sometimes my knock on doesn't work. I end up tapping the screen 5-10 times to get it to come on. Anyone else having this issue?

And make sure you don't cover the proximity sensor

Strangely enough, I found how hard I knock matters to whether it works our not. I had the same issue with knocking 5 - 6 times until I lightened my touch.

YMMV

On your second tap, hold it on the screen for a millisecond longer.
HTC Fan, but this LG G2 is Incredible

What are you using for that?
I too have noticed hard taps ate a bit more unresponsive. Mines perfect with quick ready doubletap.

This actually helped. For months the Knock On feature worked smoothly, as did the Off feature. Suddenly it stopped working so well. I had to tap very precisely and slowly, even then it was hit or miss. Better now. Off isn't an issue because I use Nova launcher gesture with Screen Off. Is there any way to adjust the sensitivity of the proximity sensor?
