Welcome to our Consumer Lab page. While you will find many mobile research surveys kicked off by our teams, you will also find polls and discussions created by fellow members.

You're invited to complete any surveys that are still open and by all means create a poll if it relates to general mobile preferences. If your topic only pertains to one product, please create your poll within the respective product forum.

After a period of time Consumer Lab Polls, Surveys & Discussions will be locked. They will still be viewable for historical data.

    Double tap fingerprint maybe? That way three taps could take quick picture.

    Yeah it just seems like a silly feature not to have. Even my Zenfone 2 lets me hit the volume down button twice as a shortcut.

    The phrasing in those two options aren't leading in the slightest!  >_> 

    Regardless, It would probably be nice for there to be an additional gesture that people could toggle on/off to launch the camera app quicker from the screen off position.

    Sounds like you want stock android.  Settings > Moves > Jump to Camera.

    Sure...why not... and while we're at it...add option for 3 clicks for sexy maid to bring me coffee in the morning

    Seriously though having more options: shutter activation options like volume down twice =launch camera, volume down once to activate shutter (easier for selfie fans), gestures like draw C on screen for camera to open... and finally a "pocket mode" preventing power button on or gestures.. while in pocket ...Xiaomi has had these for long time....and my favorite of all time (exclusive to Xiaomi) Alarm function works with phone completely shut off!

    I have to disagree with you on one point: my alarm function when the device was off on my Alcatel Idol 3.

    thanks for the exception...but Xiaomi had this on their 1st phone back in 2011 and has kept in all following phones...so I should say more correctly they were 1st having this feature and in rare company even now!
