Whilst Nokia says there’s a hardware limitation for Double Tap to Wake on Nokia Lumia 720 and under, I’ve noticed some comments from users of the Lumia 520 that mention they have double tap to wake.

One user says theirs is from AT&T. This one, I’m guessing not from AT&T, shows it off on video. It’s clearly working as advertised.

Perhaps the limitation isn’t so much the inability but the side effects?

I couldn’t find videos of double tap on the 720/620 though it doesn’t indicate one way or the other whether it’s possible or not. This video suggests technically, if you wanted that feature, it would run ok.
