LG G2 D800 GESTURE BASICS

Use simple gestures to turn on the screen, answer the phone, silence an incoming call, even snooze an alarm.


You can set the phone to turn the screen on by quickly double-tapping the screen. Double-tap an empty area in the Home screen, Status Bar, and Lock screen to turn the screen off.

  1. From the Home screen, tap Apps  > Settings  > General tab  > Gestures

  2. Checkmark  Screen on/off to enable KnockON.

Note: Tap on the center area of the screen. If you tap on the bottom or the top area, the recognition rate may decrease.

During an incoming call, fade out the ringtone while picking up the phone and bringing the phone to your ear to answer. You can also silence incoming calls with a flip motion.

Note: If the proximity sensor is covered by something, the device might perform an incorrect action.
