IPhone has the feature, but Samsung is very limited. Is there a way to assign my Samsung wallet/cards using the double click lock button on the right side? The only options they have are to slide up from the home screen, lock screen, or when the screen is off. This is a huge hassle considering I have to use either or instead if double clicking the side for convenience.

I was going to recommend the Settings and advance and set the double press power key to Open an App, but Samsung Pay doesn't display unfortunately.

That's the great thing about Android (specifically Samsung) as opposed to iPhone though; the possibilities are nearly endless. 🙂

I wish they can fix that. Thats one of the few things I'd like to have to make it just more practical than swiping on my screen. I accidentally open Samsung wallet a lot when I'm on my lock screen. But because they give you few options, it's hard maneuver around it.

I would argue it's just something to become accustomed to, rather than something to fix. You're right, that the option should at least be there. I'm willing to bet that native side-key functionality for Samsung Wallet may be added in a future update!

Hey I have what I believe will be great news. If you download "Good lock" and Registar app - you can customize the side key with "long hold" where you press and hold the side key - then select "open app" and Samsung wallet is an option. Please give it a try and let me know if that's an acceptable solution for you.

Thank you for reminding me of this! I think this is further evidence why Good Lock needs to be natively incorporated into all Samsung phones. 🙃

I'm not sure I agree with native incorporation of Good Lock. I think it's important for the developers to have a testing ground (or playground) to experiment with new features before they roll out broadly. If Good Lock became native, users would reasonably expect it to be fully matured features and become upset when they don't work as expected. In the playground, I expect a few bumps and bruises.

Right, but Good Lock isn't really like a playground, or beta testing area, it's more an ancillary app that adds more features and personalization. Kind of like Good Guardians. I think most settings inside Good Lock are fairly stable to incorporate. For the rest, maybe they could just expand the Labs or Advanced Features options.

I'll give this a try as well. The only shortcoming I see is that I can only bring up the Samsung Wallet as a list of all registered cards, not as focused on the default card as is the case with the swipe action. Is there a workaround I'm missing?

Nope, no workaround to bring up a default card through RegiStar yet. I don't see why this function can't be added though. Make sure to submit this request via an Error report in the Samsung Members app's Support tab.
