Now that I have used the 6.1 for a few weeks I have noticed a few shortcomings that could possibly be fixed with upcoming software updates. I love the phone for the most part, but if these few things are fixed, it would make my experience (and most possibly yours) much better.
I am also writing this thread to possibly make this a common thread for the Nokia 6.1 community to share our thoughts on what we would like to see improved. Maybe if enough of you post here we could request for a Sticky for this thread. So heres my list of 4 things I would really like to see improved.
1. Double tap to wake consistency: It works perfectly 8 to 9 out of 10 times. But that 1 time it doesn't its annoying. Because I use this feature every time I unlock my phone, its of great importance to me.
2. Camera Shake: I have noticed that I have to make extra effort to steady my hands to ensure there is no blur caused due to camera shake, which I did not have to do on my previous phone. It feels like a downgrade, and I am reminded of it whenever the phone takes a blurry image because of shake.
3. Auto focus: feels inconsistent as I often have to tap to focus to get the focus right. I cannot rely on the camera to take the shot, which is not how it should be in the Auto Mode.
4. Photos in dim lighting: We all know how low light images aren't any good on our camera. But maybe we could get better results at least in dimly lit conditions if not in low light? If this is. Also, it might be making the shake and autofocus worse. If this is fixed we could get away with not using the flash unless its necessary.
The double tapping to wake up the phone almost never works on the first time for me. I have to do it at least twice--so that's like 4 taps. Really unresponsive screen. Maybe my tapping is bad.
I am optimistic about the camera getting fixed. We have seen this happen for many phones.
@Mouli You can use this app to lock your screen- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lsc.lock
Just place its icon on homescreen and tap it once to lock.
As far as jitter is concerned, I haven't use the phone before Oreo 8.1. But I do notice jitter every now and then. Especially in the phone app, and just today I noticed the notification panel jitter while I was playing a game. I do hope they optimize the next update.

Forget tapping, the one improvement I would like...need is for my phone to not randomly shut off and refuse to charge/boot up for a day or more.
