Is there a simple way to turn on the Samsung galaxy note 8 device without pressing the power button to activate the display? Like, raise to wake, only having to swipe down on the screen once? If so, could you provide step by step instructions of how to do this?

While your phone is resting on a table or stand, there's an option under Accessibility to wave your hand across the screen.

unfortunately not without a janky app from the play store. one feature I miss from my iPhone. Samsung's reason? Always on display takes the place of raise to wake.
