    The screen on 1520 is IPS, it consumes battery.
    Doesn't matter much. I have been using it on all my phones (since 920) till now and it has had minimal impact to the battery.

    Battery life on my 1520 is worse with glance on (W10M).

    C.Nash, glad you got it to work. My iPhone toting colleagues look at me funny when I wave at my ambient sensor to trigger "peek" glance. I tell them it's a new and improved version of 3D touch.

    Ronaldme, I don't notice the glance clock moving around on my 950 XL either. It seems to be in the lower left of the screen all the time.

    In contrast, my 1520 on 8.1 had the glance details fly all over the place.

    So I am a little bit concerned about burn in on my 950 XL. Another reason to prefer "30 seconds" over "always on", I guess?

    Yes, 30 seconds here, I don't want screen burning neither

    Funny how they went backward with Glance. 8.1 you could even have msn weather as the whole lock screen that floated onto Glance with detailed Calendar...cant do that anymore. Nokia n9 from almost 10 years ago was doing Glance better than this

    Remember that it is a new OS, the glance was rewritten and they will release updates with new features. Glance was worse when released on WP8.x.

    The Glance Screen settings are in Settings, it doesn't need its own application.
    Not on some preview builds, it should have been in settings but wasn't accessible until the app was manually downloaded from the store and in some cases that wasn't possible. There're a load of threads on the subject.

    920 with the latest insider build. Only moves around when set to always on, but not sure if that's a bug
    Can you tell me what build you'e on? I am on 10586.29 and Glance setting crashes every time I launch it. So it remains off since the day I did the update. I am assuming you're on 10586.36 and Glance works perfectly on it. Is it?

    After upgrading to WM10, Glance had to be updated to the latest WM10 version inorder to be fully functional. An update has already been pushed a while ago to work with WM10.

    Try downloading the latest Glance WM10 update from the Store. If that doesn't work then try re-installing Glance. If that doesn't fix it either then a hard-reset is your only bet.

    I have Glance "always on" but.....I have it in "night mode red" from 02:01 to 02:00. I like the red better than the standard, to bright, "white" and even in direct sun light it is bright enough for me. And it is less conspicuous. No picture and I don't notice any battery issues but the battery on my L950 have been great since it came out of the box anyway Oh, and it moves around on my L950 with these settings.

    I have mine set to 30 seconds, because that gives me enough time to A) see if anyone has messaged me, B) see if Windows Central has any new stories (it'll be going off a lot next week, can't wait), and/or C) see my battery level (Battery Sense). Once either A or B, I unlock my phone and go from there. If A or B isn't there, at least I know C (which usually has a thought process of "Oh man, shouldn't have played Sniper Fury on my 950 XL....").

    In other news though, my notifications do move when it's on the charger (guess because that's enough time for it to).

    The red looks weird on my 950xl... and mine never moves around, no matter what setting I have it on.

    Those of us with 950 XLs do not have an app we can download the latest Glance WM10 from the store or re-install. Glance is built into the OS and you access it's settings from the normal OS settings (All Settings - Extras - Glance Screen).

    Did a quick search in the store, and I don't even see a Glance app.

    That's still a separate app and not baked in to the OS.

    Here's the link to the store download: http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=s99aLN8n

    You can download the XAP and install it. Glance is an app, but it is not shown on the store, you need the direct link, the same for the rest of extras.

    Interesting. If I search for Glance Screen, I can't find that app in the store, but it comes up if I tap on the link you provided. Good to know, thanks.

    I still don't think you can delete it and re-install though. I went to Extras in the settings area and long pressed "Glance screen" and did not get an option to delete. Also checked the app list and it doesn't appear there.

    No biggie for me as it work fine for me, but I don't think someone who is having issues with it would be able to delete and re-install. Unless there's some other way to delete it?

    Yeah, I see that now from pankaj981's response. By the way, I don't know what XAP is.

    Well it is appx file, not xap, my mistake. APPX is an installer file.

    Answered it all, but remembered when Microsoft said on their presentation, that glance uses "zero" battery life, not so true after all.
    hes talking about lumia 920 not lumia 950 that microsoft said in their event... i think amoled doesnt drain battery like the nokia lumia ones but the color quality sucks on amoled

    And there is a cool little app called Locktemp that allows you to add the temp to the notifications (if you can spare a space), which I find very handy.

    I no longer wear a watch as my 950XL is surgically attached to me now anyway (well, that could be exaggerating a tad ).
