LG Knock Code will be available on the G2 and G Flex in April after a software update
Knock Code is an enhancement of the older KnockOn, and it debuted last month on LG’s G Pro 2. According to the company, more than 50% of participants in a survey selected Knock Code as “the most anticipated feature” of the new G Pro. You can see a video demo of Knock Code here.

LG didn't develop the knock code, Lumia phones first had this feature.

Nobody really cares who develop what first as long as us consumers benefit... Why don't people understand?

I think you mistaken the Knock Code and KnockOn. The Knock Code is first developed by LG, which you can set tappings as your pattern lock. About the KnockOn (which is double tap to wake screen), yes, the Lumia phones already have this feature before LG.
But it doesn't really matter who's the first to develop the feature, the important thing is that it's useful or not. I think the KnockOn (double tap to wake screen) and Knock Code is useful, I don't really care who's the first to develop these features.

LG UI has many useful features, including the knock on feature which now everyone is including it in their flagships(Z2, New One, Find 7), but I still don't get how the knock code is that useful. It takes more time to unlock your phone, very predictable if someone is taking a peek, plus all thw fingerprints left on the screen after unlocking your phone.

Here's my opinion
LG will be the next tiger
btw, my LG G2 which is south Korea version F320
I thought it will receive Android 4.4 KitKat about 6 months or even longer after release
but I received Android 4.4 in 2014 mid-January
and Android 4.4.2 update about in February
this is really incredible
