Same here, just received the phone: Quality seems quite good but I'm surprised this basic functionality (double tap to wake) is not available.
From what I read, if it's not implemented at kernel level then no apps can bring it to the phone ...

If anyone has more info, that would be great!

As an alternative this app can be tried. It wakes the device up by wave gesture.
It must be checked if Mi A2 Lite still goes to deep sleep mode and doesnt stay awake when app is active (hint by dev that some devices have problems)
Also it must be checked if Fingerprint is working without any issues like re-enter PIN after fingerprint unlock

I got the phone 3 days ago. Double-tap to wake works from day one.
I really wish I could turn it OFF.
Ambient Light is Off, TalkBalk is Off but phone still wakes up in my pocket all the time.
Anyone know how to turn this feature Off please?

As it turns out, this phone comes with two types of display CSOT & EBBG.On csot, the double tap works, but it can not be turned off, and on ebbg it does not work.

yes stock launcher and even if i install alternative launcher, since not rooted, every tme i lock screen with double tap to sleep it asks for pin, sequence or other, very annoying...

Strangely, on my A2 Lite, double tap only wakes up the screen. Double tapping when screen is awake does nothing at all.

I emailed Xiaomi Support about this, asking how I could disable the waking up. The reply came from Xiaomi Support Malaysia:

Go to the Settings - Select Accessibility - Select advanced settings - Turn on the pocket mode option​

I replied, "There is no Advanced Settings under Accessibility. There is also no setting available when I search for pocket or double or tap twice."

Their advice was to backup and perform a Factory Reset, which I think is nonsense.
