It would be nice to have this feature. When the device is locked and you swipe up it should show you notifications as when it's unlocked.

That would be a really nice feature but there could be some undesired action while the phone is in your pocket - the simple solution is to use the proximity sensor! :)

BUT I woul not like to replace the double tap feature! Instead this should be an additional feature.

Like on BB10? If that's what I think, you can check notifications without unlocking the device. Just one finger up, take a look and swipe down and it's locked again. I don't know if it makes a big difference in usage and battery life or if it is just a habit to take but I am favorable.

If you have a code setup in the security settings you can get this feature already.
