    My 640 XL came in last night, and I was able to confirm what I suspected in my previous post. Due to the differences in hardware, the Glance Screen settings have fewer options on the 640 phones than the phones with "full" glance. I've attached photos of the settings side-by-side with the resulting glance screen for my 820 compared to my 640 XL. Note the options under the "Content" header.

    Thanks! I have also noticed the same thing - my 1520 has the detailed Glance screen while my 640XL does not and the settings are different too. I thought eventually a firmware update would bring all these small things. But what do I know?

    Hey! Also! Love that pic on the 640XL screen!!! Can you share? Thanks!

    What OS do you have on your phone?
    Under W10 on my Lumia 640 XL there is no Glance Screen screen like you show.

    Glance screen may be installed on your phone but it doesn't show up under extras. That is a known issue with w10m. To get around that you can use sysapp pusher and install the app from within that app. once installed you can only open it the same way. Sysapp pusher will get the link to the store and open store. if you wait a little bit in the store app, you will see the option "open". once you tap that you have access to Glance screen and its settings. But as others have said - the options are limited.
    to get a permanent icon (kinda) for Glance screen you can follow my guide here:

    To me the real world usefulness of glance screen is marginal, especially if you have it set to turn off in a few minutes. Glance and Tap To Wake features are both, in my opinion, not really gimmickry, but more redundant than anything else.

    Yes indeed. The most important thing for me is to be able to get a good network connection and be able to comfortably receive call and manage my email and social media apps. anything else is a bonus :)
