One of the most important elements of a Smartphone is without a doubt the power button . Thanks to this element we can turn off , turn on and restart our terminal . The only problem is that over time this button can degrade from so much use . That is why in MrAppsGeek we already saw a trick with which, for example, you could restart the mobile without touching the screen , increasing the useful life of this button. However, we will still have to press it every time we want to turn the touch panel on or off. At this point you will be happy to know that there is a ttrick that will allow you to turn on the screen with two taps on Android and even turn it off by following the same steps . Would you like to know how it is done? Well, you just have to follow the steps that I indicate below, do not miss them!
What is the use of turning the screen on or off with two touches?
It is a function that is available in most current Android phones that allows you to turn the screen on or off with a double tap on the screen . This allows less use of the power button which will increase the life of this item.
How to turn the screen on or off with 2 touches on Android step by step 2023
The first thing we must do is enter the “Settings” of our phone as you can see in the image below.
We will look for the “Advanced Functions” section , once located we will enter inside.
If you can’t find “Advanced Features” you can always use the search icon to perform the following query “Movements by Gestures” or “Gestures” .
It is possible that depending on the mobile this function is in another location of settings, so the search magnifying glass is an excellent tool to search for it.
It should also be noted that double tapping on the screen on Android is not available on 100% of phones, but it is on the vast majority of current ones .
Returning to the subject, within “Advanced Functions” we must enter “Movements and Gestures” .
It is in this section where we will have to activate the following:
- Double tap turns on screen: The screen turns on when you tap it twice.
- Double-tap turn off screen: Double-tap an empty space on the Home or Lock screen.
And that’s it, now we can turn the screen on and off with two taps , it’s that easy. If you have any questions, leave me a comment and don’t forget to share this tutorial with your friends and family through your social networks. Thank you!
