    Glance.

    Do you love it? Need it? Won't buy another phone without it?

    Hate it? Don't want it? The OS should get rid of it?

    What's that? Meh...

    I loved Glance on my 822, but it takes way to long to show up on my 830.

    By the time Glance lights up on my phone, I could have pulled out the phone, turned it on, checked the time and placed it back in my picked
    Pocket.

    I am all in with Glance. It is indispensable to me and helps me triage my priorities so well. I test drove a Blu Win HD for a couple of weeks and really missed my Glance.

    It makes it painful now to not have it. One of the things I LOVE most about Windows Phone is how it brings what I want to know and need to use so close to the surface... so accessible.

    Glance epitomizes that for me. It's like a lifeline to what I need to know right now and requires no more effort than a Glance.

    Don't use it at all, useless for me. I prefer interacting with the phone 👌

    I'm driving an 830 right now... It's a bit slow on the Glance. I have always on. Are you using Peek? I hear that is really slow on 830. I like the always on as it flashes my info whenever I take the phone out of pocket or lift it from where I lay it face down.

    Glance lets me decide if I need to interact with the phone or put it back in my pocket and carry on. Or get the date or time or battery status quickly, just by looking...

    The always on when charging is something else I find useful to let me know when my 820 itself thinks it is fully charged when sitting on one of my QI chargers. When the screen goes blank then I know for sure it is properly topped up rather than what the charger thinks.

    I think you can make registry edits to make the sensor's response time faster.

    I love Glance on my 720 but it was hopeless on the 830 I tried, which is one of the reasons I returned it.

    I loved it on my old 925, but on my 830 it was a big disappointment... So slow to pick up movements and failed so much...

    Overall it's one of the coolest features WP ever had and i think it deserves more attention from MS. I do miss it sometimes on the 930

    I think it would be cool to have, but at the end of the day i'm not going to make my phone buying decision on it. I'm perfectly happy with my BLU Win HD LTE phone.

    My Icon is my first Windows phone, it doesn't have glance, it sounds cool though. As someone posted above, I'd like to see a BlackBerry like notification LED on WP.

    Tried for a month or two on my old 928 when it first came out, was kind of meh about it, disabled it, and haven't missed it on my Icon. I get enough distractions and out of sequence interactions through the day, I kind of appreciate my phone can be an inert slab until I interact with it.

    I use a Tylt wireless charger at work, situated right between my monitors, so if a toast comes through, I see it out of the corner of my eye.

    It doesn't waste battery. The difference is not even noticeable.

    I do like glance and it suit perfectly to my needs, like ,,tap to wake" but i use only glance. Tap to wake seem wasting my battery (1520). Sure, nice features but Nok..MS need to optimise it even more.

    I use double-tap-to-wake sort of off and on in my daily life. A lot depends on grip and can I reach the Power button easily. Usually when I'm multitasking and need to get the phone ready while finishing something with the other hand.

    I do LOVE double-tap-to-wake when I'm in the car and using nav and I have a loooong stretch on a road and I've turned the screen off to help the charging along. In the car mount scenario I think double-tap-to-wake becomes a fantastic tool and I'm dying for it's sibling to arrive with Update 2; double-tap-nav bar-to-sleep. That combo is must have for car mounted application, IMHO.

    LOLz really that is another thread and maybe another poll?

    I bought 930 after my 620 died. I miss Glance. It's not a deal breaker, but a good nice-to-have feature. :)

    Face it Steve, you're in denial about your love for BlackBerry. It's ok to have both. They're phones, not wives, you can have more than one.

    Come on, a led notification would come in handy, at least making the capacitive buttons blink, that'd be really useful 😊
