Last Update date : Sep 21. 2020

While your phone is stored in a pocket or bag, the normal motions automatically wakes up the Galaxy S10 leading to unintended touches and actions. This could be due to an advanced feature you have enabled within your settings.

Lift to wake: Set the device to turn on the screen when you pick it up
Double tap to wake up: Set the device to turn on the screen by double-tapping anywhere on the screen while the screen is turned off

 

Ensure that you disabled the Lift to Wake or Double tap to wake up on the device's Advanced Feature Settings. To deactivate these motion and gesture, follow these steps:

1 Open Settings.Then select Advanced features
Tap Advanced Features
2 Tap on Motion and Gestures
Tap Motion and Gestures
3 Toggle off Lift to wake and Double tap to wake up
Toggle off Lift to wake and Double tap to wake up
