    got brand new lumia 640xl but the glance screen does not show date or weather or background photo.
    although notifications are shown by the glance screen.

    Nope, both 640s have a less capable Glance than most modes. Either because their Glance has yet to be updated or the display memory is not good enough to show more information.

    But yes, it's a thing. 640 and 640 XL have Glance, though not the same Glance as all other Glance capable Lumias.

    It's either in battery save mode, or you didn't enable it (date, detailed status, quick status, background photo) in Glance. Also MS Weather won't show up unless it's opened in Lock screen and stored on the phone. BTW only MS Weather will show weather, the other weather apps will only show their background. You also have to choose Calendar in Lock screen to show detailed status...did you try to read up on how to or did you just assume things would enable themselves ? many think they do.

    For your information Mr. Lebowski I already own Lumia 925, lumia 1320. So i know how to enable /disable various features on glance screens. Was expecting kind of expert comments but guess you took the pain to directly pour in your comments without even using the lumia 640xl.
    Probably next time for the betterment of mankind give answers after testing the things and finding out the truth.
