You will be able to if you install a custom rom on it.

I really dislike that feature: my dad's tablet has it and I find myself inadvertantly turning the screen on all the time just handling it.

No I won't you would need a custom rom or atleast a root apk

It would be strange for Google not to implement it this time since double tap wake is pretty much a default feature for all LG devices, but I guess Google is more interested in your fingerprints.

I assume that you can wake it up with the fingerprint sensor, which would eliminate the need for the double tap function.

According to the AMA on Reddit from the Nexus team you can simply nudge the phone to activate the ambient display and then unlock. That's good enough for me.

I have no experience with ambient display of Nexus phones generally. Does the phone know not to turn on the ambient display when it's in your pocket and you get a notification?

How close to the Moto X wave for ambient display will the nudge to wake thing be for the 5x and 6p? Will it be strictly motion or could I still Jedi Mind Trick my phone into showing the time and recent notifications?
