Slide along the fingerprint sensor
If your device has a fingerprint sensor, you can slide your finger over it –down- so that the device notification panel is displayed more quickly, without having to touch the screen.
Quick access to the camera
If you usually take pictures with your smart phone, surely you are interested in activating this gesture that allows you to open the app atpress twice the device power button. In many terminals, it is a gesture activated natively or integrated into the manufacturer's customization layer.

Lift to consult
The result is exactly the same as before, but in this case the gyroscope is used to know when we lift the device from a surface. In doing so, if we have activated this gesture, we can see the notifications and the time between other information.
