How to Turn On Your Galaxy S5 Screen Without Pressing the Home Button

Last week i recieved a mail about the new Samsung galaxy S5

“How Do I Turn On My Galaxy S5 Screen Without Pressing the Home Button? “

Most of us are so addicted to our phone that we can’t put it down for even a minute.. But they are chances are that you could break your phone’s power button because of excessive use.
With my little research , i was able to discover that it is possible to turn on your phone’s screen on without touching any buttons. In this tutorial, i will show you two ways on how to enable this feature on your Galaxy S5 or any Android phone.

  • 1.Using the Air Wake Up
  • Feature
  • 2. Auto Screen On off app

Using the Air Wakeup feature

Step 4 . After clicking on Dexterity, in the next screen just below the Assistant menu , you will see a Air wake up option at the top of the list. This feature allows you to turn on the phone’s screen by just hovering your hand over the sensor at the top near the speaker of the phone. For you to be able to turn it on, tap the option, and slide the button at the top right of the screen to the right. The green button indicates that the feature is currently active.

It works best when the phone is on a stable surface.

Step 2. Installed The application , Once you ve done that, launch the Auto Screen Settings app from the app drawer, and turn the app on.
Step 3.You can now test the app by turning off the phone’s screen and hovering your hand over the top of the phone.

Note : the Air wake up feature or the Auto Screen On Off app may consume your battery faster.

I believe you will find two app useful.
