Tapping on it would open the list of options. Go to screen-off gestures, turn it ON and you’ll have a bunch of gestures available to use right away. Such like double tap to wake up, Draw O to start the camera, as well as you can add a gesture too. Select the black screen gesture you want and then select the function, and you’re good to go.
To turn ON these features, you have to launch the settings app and then head over to the Gesture & Motion option under General tab. Tapping on it would open a list, now head over to the screen-ON gestures. Unfortunately, you cannot add new gestures here unlike screen-off gestures. But you get four options such as activating the camera with a multi-finger; double tap to lock, gesture screen shot, and the final gesture allows adjusting the volume with two fingers.
Smart call is another of gesture feature available on Neo 5. To enable this, you have to launch the Settings app and head over to the same gesture & motion option under the General tab.

To use this feature, you have to launch the Settings app and head over to the More option available under the general tab. Tapping on it would open a set of options, but you’re concerned with OTG, so switch the toggle button in front of it to ON. There you go, now OTG on your device would be detected.
