    During charging glance screen= ON usually means a message to user, like bad USB cable, bad connection/connectors, no power coming in, intermittent power disruptions, ...etc. Of course if no software/hardware defects exist.

    No, there's nothing wrong, just when Glance went from being under "Extras" to being under "Personalization" (or in other news, physically part of the OS), that was one of the features that went "missing." Sadly, right now, there's no way to get it back, but hey, give Microsoft some time (I bet they had to rewrite it, like they did Double Tap to Wake) and it'll be back. Until then, put it in the Feedback app, and up vote any other mention of it.

    I flip the phone face down or cover the proximity sensor to shut off the screen while charging.

    The lock screen stays on too, if you don't manually turn the screen off. Horrible update.

    This is a screenshot of the advanced glance settings from under the extras menu.
    These settings were accessible in the previous builds.
    It crashes on the current build.

    Do try to access and turn that off, if its on.

    What Microsoft have done is, they have transferred glance on/off toggle, glance screen timing, and night mode settings to Settings>Personalisation>Glance Screen
    I believe, this Glance entry under personalisation is relatively new and before that, glance settings were available only under the extras menu.

    I think the OP had turned on the option top show glance screen while charging, in the previous build and after updating, (if hard reset was not done) the settings got carried over.

    And of course there is a possibility of bad charging cable, connection as @Mesbah mentions in the second post.

    Two things are lacking:
    - One is the option to turn off Glance while charging...or at least during night mode.
    - Another thing is that the clock should move around the screen from time to time... to avoid burning in the amoled screens... Some persons said it moves... but it doesn't move (950XL with several builds/restores)

    Na, sadly. It'll always stay on until Microsoft adds the option back to the new Glance app.

    This is sad. Why should we have to do this? Samsung went through similar pains with their OS overlay years ago... they learned the hard way to listen to the people.

    Noticed the same thing. Absolutely stupid that they would leave out the option to disable glance while charging. At least if you force us to have it on, let the damn time move around the screen so as to decrease the chance of screen burn. IDIOTS!

    If you cover the sensor it will go off 👍

    Is burn in a concern on these displays? Just curious because I'm a new 950XL owner and have noticed Glance is always on during charging.

    I don't know for sure, but I have seen pictures (on here) that was supposedly "burned in". I'm not sure that that was actually it, but it had me worry. And since the feature used to be there, I figure it will at least stop the potential.

    AMOLED screens apparently can suffer from burn in, but I see no evidence that Glance will do that. I use an old Nokia N8 as a bedside clock, and Glance is on all of the time and is much brighter than Glance is on Lumias. There is absolutely no evidence of burn in on this phone, and it's been in use for many years now.

    On the contrary, I've heard of Glance not moving has caused ghosting on an LCD-equipped 640.

    Did it move around the screen of your N8 over time?

    It moves slowly up and down on my N8, but it has overlap even when it moves. Perhaps it's just enough to prevent burn in, but it has been on for many years now, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I even did a test using solid backgrounds and I can't see any ghosting. And the Glance on the N8 is really bright. I also have no ghosting on my 640. Here's a pic of the Glance on my N8. The Glance on my 640 was so faint in the pic that it's not worth posting.
