Hi,
I have just moved to Samsung M51 from my Moto G5S Plus device. Though i am loving M51 but i am missing my moto gestures in M51 like pick to switch on screen, shake to switch on flashlight, taking screenshots with 3 fingers and locking phone by touching the sensor again while the phone is on. Can i get these in my M51? I've tried few apps from google playstore but those are nowhere close to the features in Moto.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

I am really missing those features too. Coming from my Moto Z Play.
Best option I found so far is to configure the flashlight to left/right swipe on the lock screen. However not comparable to a simple phone chop gesture.
On the Moto Z Play I also loved that I don't even have to pick up the phone to activate the always-on screen to check the time or notifications. I just need to hover with my hand over the screen. On the M51 I can tap the screen (once to show always-on screen with time + notifications) which is "OK" but not at the same usability level as the Moto.
Since my phone usually is in a phone cradle I also preferred the front-mounted fingerprint scanner which allowed me to unlock at a fingerpress and to re-lock with immediate screen off by touching the sensor again. On the Galaxy I need to press a side-button which is less accessible.
