    Just curious how many people use Glance and those who do, what setting.

    I'm new to Lumia (had a Samsung WP before), so I didn't have Glance. If it's set to be always on, are there any image retention concerns? Is the battery impact minimal?

    Ello Skippy :D just want to clarify.. I picked "always on", but previously my go to setting was 30 seconds. Reason why I switched? Well I switched when I was trying to replicate a problem that someone here was having, but I found it so useful, I decided to keep it on "always on"..

    Battery? very minimal impact

    Screen? well when I place mine on "always on" it moves around instead of staying in one place, which is essentially ideal

    Lumia 920

    Answered it all, but remembered when Microsoft said on their presentation, that glance uses "zero" battery life, not so true after all.

    I see you reference a Lumia 920. Are you saying it moves around on your Lumia 920 and not a 950XL? If so, does the 920 have Windows 10 Mobile, or is it still on WP8.x?

    On my 950XL with Win 10 Mobile, the information on the screen does not move around no matter if it's set for 30sec, 15min, or Always on. Does it move around for anyone else with a 950XL?

    30 seconds here, I know it is an amoled screen but I'm afraid of screen burning.

    920 with the latest insider build. Only moves around when set to always on, but not sure if that's a bug

    I looked up what peek does, and my 950xl seems to do it by default. After the glance screen times out and I hover or wave my hand over the phone the glance screen will come back on.

    Ferretzombie, you are a genius and you are absolutely correct. Peek is still alive and well, it is just on by default.

    And here I was lamenting the demise of peek. I thought the "30 seconds" setting alone didn't make an awful lot of sense, but with peek, it totally makes sense.

    So back OT, I had it "always on" before, but now I have it on "30 seconds - with peek" .

    A related question, who here sets it so glance is on "night mode" all day? As you know, night mode lets you choose a colour (red, green and blue). I have mine on red permanently because I have been led to believe that the red sub-pixels of our OLED screens are the most durable (with blue being the least durable).

    I have the nigh mode to turn off.

    Well, I rarely get any notifications, Maybe one sms a day. I've disabled whatsapp, email and other notifications as I check those manually at my own time

    Glance Screen shows you the date, time, any notifications you have (like texts, emails, calendar events, etcetera). It'll also tell you if your phone is charging, if you have any alarms turned on, and if you have Quiet Hours activated. Previously, you could also set Glance Screen to show you the weather too, although I'm not sure that's possible in Windows 10 Mobile and I wouldn't do it anyways because I don't want my Lock Screen to change.

    It does show weather. Just choose the weather app for the app to show detailed status on the lock screen.

    Off for me (lumia 925). Never liked it as it reminds me of those cheesy red LED watches from the 70s. Sounds tell me if I have messages, emails, WhatsApp messages etc although I am looking forward to once again having different alerts for different email accounts.

    Also find it rather annoying it's always back on by default with each insider build, and up until the last few the app was missing and had to be manually reinstalled (at least for me) to turn it off again.

    The Glance Screen settings are in Settings, it doesn't need its own application.

    Good to know, thanks, but I probably won't take advantage of that. I can only have one detailed status, so yeah.

    How do you get "peek" to work.
    I previously had my glance set to 15 minutes, I noticed that when it would go into my pocket it would turn off but when I pulled it out it would go on again.

    Now I have set it to 30 seconds and now after that 30 seconds it goes away unless I click the power button which will unlock the phone.. No waving or tapping or anything gets the glance screen back...

    waving or tappint at the top of the screen will turn on glance, tested on my L950XL with 30 secs option.

    The screen on 1520 is IPS, it consumes battery.
