    Loved Glance on my 822 then 928. Sorely miss it on my Icon. I'm assuming neither of the new "flagship" super phones will include Glance?

    ok here is what I have set up on the glance screen settings
    date: on
    detailed status: on
    quick status: on
    background app: on

    then on the lock screen I have,
    background (weather)
    notifications (battery) there is no weather app in my "choices"

    I think I have this set up properly but still no weather on my glance screen! am I missing something?

    L640 doesn't have those settings on GDR2.
    Settings available:
    Quick Status Notifications: On
    Always show glance screen when charging: On
    Night Mode: red
    with start and end time set.

    No Background App toggle at all. That means it's designed not to get weather.

    Cause didn't know it until this thread, and it was only a "best guess" earlier in the thread. The settings confirm it.

    Glance was the main reason I didn't upgrade my 928 to an Icon!
    I changed my glance settings to "Interval" recently. It's even cooler now! It shuts off glance if its sitting for too long. It activates when it detects motion using the proximity sensor. It saves a little more battery and I just have to give it a little wave in front of the screen and it turns on glance. My friends think I got the latest and greatest smartphone with nifty features. Their faces are priceless when I tell them that its a two year old Windows phone...

    Apology not needed. And as Ed Boland said, Welcome to the Glance Club. Been using this feature since i had my old 920 and still using it a few phones after. Real handy for me.

    Since I switched from the L920 to the L930, I really miss "Glance"... it's a little nice feature which is really handy

    Imma glass half-full kinda guy, so what I understood was.. I was your motivation for apologizing and thanking Nokia/MS for this small but nifty feature that makes our day so much better :D
    Thank only Nokia and not MS. It's solely Nokia who introduced the glance in N8 first, then added background feature to it. ****ting MS is taking away all the better that is left of Nokia and making it just a feature phone. My N8 still sits on my desk royally with glance on. And still keeping L925 as all newer so called high end phones and high end ****.

    Microsoft... please... Glance on Lumia 950 & 950 XL...

    To be honest I don't think they will have it, memory display for a 2K AMOLED panel... but I still have hope.

    They'll include Glance. The reason the Icon didn't include Glance was a lack of display memory, which was a mistake by Nokia. There will be mutiny if the two new flagships don't have the display memory for Glance when a phone like the Lumia 640 does (even if it's a stripped back Glance).

    Love the Weather on Glance, but it seems to be consuming much more battery in 1520.
    Anyone else having this issue?

    Glance is more optimal for amoled screens. I have a 720 (yes I know its really old but I'm just ok with it) and whenever I turned on Glance it consumed my battery so friggin hard that I ultimately learned to live without it. Yes I guess the bright lights at night can be a bother but I don't really check my phone until it vibrates or beeps or something. How do I check the time then ? There's these cute little devices called watches or clocks :P All-in-all the only problem I have with Glance is the huge battery consumption and for me that is a major problem. Besides, double tapping the screen or something or turn it on takes the same amount of time and effort as pushing the button. I know its not Nokia/Microsoft's fault that I have an old model but hey, I;m happy with it, so why change it :)

    Is it because I'm in Canada that my Glance only shows the time? That's why I've deactivated it... I don't need my phone to be a desk clock.

    I buy a Lumia 735 last week (wanted the Lumia 830, but was so overpriced that I cannot aford it) and shame on them, it doesn't have Glance :(
    I friggin love the pone, it's a really nice jump from my old one (Lumia 625), but I look at my GF Lumia 620 when she pulls out and watch the hour with Glance and oh boy... meaby next phone.

    I swapped my aging Lumia for an iPhone 6+ while waiting for MS to figure out what it wants to do with Windows on phone (for which I still have high hopes). I miss Glance every single day, during every single interminably boring meeting.

    Love Windows Phone. Love Glance. Love my 930, but boy do I miss glance. I agree, it should be defacto standard on all phones.

    Not on mine. My battery usage is still the same after I activated it on the 1520.
