After using the LG G2 and Lumia 925, double tapping on the screen to wake became a very natural way to wake my device, so I started using Touch Control. It’s a paid app worth $3.34 to get the double tap to wake or you can get the free version which allows slide2wake.
You’ll need root access as the app needs to download a modified kernel, which it does itself, but after that you’re good to go. You can even set the device to swipe to lock – Awesome!
The App needs Android 4.2, but seeing as only works on the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7(2013) and Nexus 4 this shouldn’t be a problem, all indications are that it will work on the Nexus 5 as well.
Highly recommended if you haven’t tried it, give it a go and see what you think.
