Start the phone by touching the screen, not the button on the side

    Is this possible? Many times my phone is in a holding frame of some kind (cars) and the button on the side isnt easily accessed. Is there an app or a way that a simple tap on the screen can activate the phone instead of requiring pushing the button on the side??

    Not that I know of. It would drain the battery to fast. The screen would constantly try to monitor for your finger touch to activate the screen. It's possible, but battery life would be the biggest issue....

    Too bad. Seems like a great idea, especially if the "touch" sensitivity could be adjusted so the phone doesnt wake up too easily

    I don't agree, how in the heck would a person having one in their pocket...not have it accidentally turning on all the time? How would you make a sensitivity that can tell the touch of your finger (on purpose) vs the slight rubbing as it moves in your pocket (unintentional).....
    power button is there for a purpose.

    Do it by having two options for unlocking:


    1. unlock with pattern
    2. unlock with touch
