Mine is an A20e and does not seem to have this feature - at least not via the normal Setting /Motions and Gestures. Is it hidden away elsewhere ? It is something I have had on all previous ( not Samsung  ) phones and it spoils an otherwise good phone.

Any chance of it being included in an update ?

Yeah, why this isn't included makes no sense.  Since losing the Home Button, we need a way to turn on the phone from the screen.

 

Samsung please fix this.

I too was annoyed this not being available.

However, just discovered that if you use the Fingerpring  Unlock method then this both Wakes itup and Unlocks it so the Double Tap to wake is not really needed, which is probably why it is not there as an option.  This is not clear ( at least to me ) in the Manual

I find double tap easier though, i dont like using Fingerprint locks!! A40 has it so not sure why A20's dont?. weird.  I really miss AOD also,  I know on some LCD phones like Nokia 2.2 has it though .

Double tap to wake
Turn on the screen by double-tapping instead of using the Power button. This is
featured on the Galaxy A20 only.
◌ From Settings, tap Advanced features > Motions and gestures > Double tap to
wake, and tap to enable.

W.r.t. my earlier post that Fingerprint Locking does the job ( Wakes AND Unlocks ), I now understand that this can fail after a while so agree we need the Double Tap to Wake, the same as other models have, in an update.  SAMSUNG PLEASE TAKE NOTE !
