The Lift to wake feature allows you to turn on the display by simply lifting your phone from a table or removing it from your pocket. There’s no need to press any buttons! And, if you combine it with face recognition, you can activate and unlock your phone in one swift move.

Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries.

For an effortless way to activate it, set the screen to turn on when you pick up the phone.

Turn on lift to wake

From Settings, search for and select Lift to wake. Touch the switch next to Lift to wake to turn this feature on.

Lift to wake replaced the Direct call feature available in previous Android versions.

Lift to wake is especially useful if you have face recognition set up on your phone. Just lift and look at your phone to unlock it. First, you’ll need to turn on Lift to wake, and set up face recognition. Then, you’ll need to perform one last step.

Lift to unlock

From Settings, swipe to and select Biometrics and security. Touch Face recognition, draw the pattern, or enter the PIN or password associated with your face recognition, and touch Done or Next if necessary. Touch the switch next to Stay on Lock screen to turn off this feature. Now your phone will be awake and ready to unlock without needing to swipe or touch the screen.
