    Just got a Nokia 6 after my Lumia's features were destroyed by Microsoft and I'm trying to set something similiar to Glance screen. Is there any setting or App to do this?

    These vary depending on the phone you have... I don't know for sure, so it's something you'll want to double-check on.

    Ambient Display (common, found on Nexus 5X, Pixel, BlackBerry Priv, custom ROMs)

    Always-On Display (recent Samsung Galaxy S phones?)

    Moto Display (Moto phones)

    Well tried Ambient Display and Always-On Display, the second one looks not bad but it doesn't give the feeling of the glance screen.

    Read somewhere that Glance isn't supported on the Nokia 3, 5 and 6.

    I use AOD on my Samsung's with it having a certain amount customizability, can change colours, what to display, and active hours. With the latter you can have it "always on" or choose a time-range when it's being displayed. Essentially, it is either ON or OFF no in-between.

    As to whether "there's an app for that", haven't a clue as we never had the inkling to look. If there is I'm highly doubting it'll replicate Windows Phone's Glance screen to the degree you'd like.

    If it's not part of the phone's release, I don't it'll ever be there.

    Try Glance Plus - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....thsoft.glance

    It appears to be the closest to Glance. The ads appear to be a bit of an issue though.

    The upcoming Nokia 8 has an a native Glance/Always on Display setting. Thought that was a good feature for them to add.

    Maybe someone at xda will port that over from the Nokia 8 to work on the Nokia 6 or 3?
