There’s a display setting that double tap should wake the screen (so you don’t have to use the power button). For @clarity this doesn’t seem to work reliably, for me it does.
AoD (Always On Display - in the phone it’s called ‘Always show time and info’) on the other hand is the setting that even when the phone is in sleep mode, you see time, date and some icons (shouldn’t drain too much battery because OLED but seems to drain quite a lot => logged as bug). I don’t see why double tapping shouldn’t wake that screen as well, but it sure doesn’t.
Bei mir ist das auch so. Dieser Button wird immer wieder zurückgesetzt. Allerdings funktioniert es bei mir trotzdem. Ich muss nur nach zweimal klopfen noch kurz den Fingerabdrucksensor berühren, dann funktioniert das perfekt.
Damit kann man leben, denke ich.
From a software perspective, we’ve implemented all necessary improvements to help increase the reliability of this feature. Unfortunately, we can’t implement any further improvements due to hardware limitations.
It’s not really working reliable yet, but apparently it won’t get better.
I observe the descibed behaviour even with AoD disabled: I need to touch any part of the FP5 with any part of my body while double-tapping to wake. Otherwise it will not show any reaction, e. g. when it is just lying on the table.
To make it work I need to touch either the frame or the back cover with a hand, finger, nose, elbow… I may pick whatever is connected to my body and is not covered by fabric. And the slightest, lightest touch is sufficient to make it work. My suspicion is that the secret is static charge, an issue we already discussed with the FP3.
