    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'm sure Canada has nothing to do with it... Glance is Glance.

    What phone? OS version?

    It should show whatever is set to go to your Lock Screen for quick notifications... + Detail... + 1 selected app tied to a real time API like Weather, Step Counter, etc.

    You have to configure.

    I too own a Lumia 640. I just have a question, does glance and double tap to wake consumes battery heavily? I have enabled glance from the past one week and I'm liking it and also the battery seems to be performing fine. Not sure about double tap to wake! Please let me know about your take on this!

    Back in the day I did personal testing with my 920 and didn't really see a major difference with glance and DTTW in terms of power.
    So the question I'd pose myself is "do you need to squeeze every last drop out of the battery"?

    I have the Lumia 640 with Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 8.10.15.148.160

    The only things Glance shows is a black screen with the time, my battery and indeed the quick notifications for the 5 apps configured in my lockscreen. That's it. I don't have any other configuration for the weather for example (I've checked). In the Content section of the Glance screen options I only have Quick notifications.

    OK... So it is more than a clock at least...

    In Settings > Lockscreen > can you choose something for detailed status? I like Calendar, but there should be a whole list of options.

    Oh yeah it's more than I clock, I exaggerated a bit :P

    But I've never seen calendar details like there but maybe I just didn't keep it enabled long enough. It's just unfortunate that I can't get the weather there though.

    I would LOVE to have wireless charging. I'm seriously thinking about getting one of those Qi strips for inside the battery cover that covers the microUSB port and a Qi Charging pad. I'd love that. Slap me a NFC tag on the Qi charging pad to put it in Night Stand mode, and I'll be happy.
    If ya do, tell me how it works :D I've been curious lol

    Well, actually been doing a lot of research, and did an "in mind" simulation to see how it would work. I have a mind that can work that way, and it helps me solve a lot of problems. What I discovered is that since the receiver pad will cover your microUSB port, you would be forced to disassemble it if you wanted to use the USB port for anything. I figured, "Okay, so I can use Wi-Fi file transfers or Bluetooth, and I'll just put a Qi charger on my night stand, desk, and in my vehicle. Whoa there! It just started adding up cost quite a bit, plus prevents me from direct laptop hookup via USB! I've decided it's not worth it at this point in time.

    Yes it might cost a lot :p but I was curious as to how the small strip that go into the micro-usb port actually works.. I saw somewhere that someone ordered one, proceeded to install, but soon saw that it didn't work.. Another user pointed out that he/she bought the wrong one for his/her phone :/

    Yes, there are 2 types. Connector up or down. Notice one long edge of the port is shorter than the other? That connector direction will determine e which one you need.

    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 :)
    I also have a 2 year old 720 and with glance always on and double tap to wake as well. In the whole 2 years I haven't noticed any increase in battery life at all so to me it sounds like there's something else wrong. No apps running wild in the background for example?
    I find glance such a nifty extra that I'll only change to another phone with glance included. Otherwise no deal!

    I mentioned previously all the things that Glance displayed or could display:
    Time, date, weather, quick status, notifications, and a background picture.
    I would also like to mention that Glance will show you if you have any alarms turned on, and it'll show you when your device is charging and how close it is to being fully charged.
