    Is it normal for Glance to not move around on the 950?
    Using it in "Always on" mode & noticed it's not moving around. Did on my 925.

    They say it is normal. I actually preferred it moving (won't pixel age too much in that part of the screen only?)

    It seems to be normal. I'm afraid to use the always-on feature now because of it. I like that feature but it seems like the stationary glance would burn the screen over time.

    Damn. Must be a shortcoming of the memory display or something. Yeah had it on at work today (2nd day with the phone) & noticed it. Thought it was one of the notification icons or the power plugged in that was causing it. Hmm still going to use it though (must have feature).

    I would expect it to move around.

    The fact it doesn't concerns me somewhat. I hope its intentional because maybe the display is magical and will never burn in, but hey, a guy can dream right?

    Maybe since its so high-res it switches every other pixel over time.

    That would put it in-line with how Glance Background works.

    Won't leaving it always on give you significant battery drain? And aren't you guys worried about burn in?

    Seems to be a general issue with Windows 10. Also on my 1520 and 830 after Glance has been updated to the new W10 version, it doesn't move around anymore.

    You guys are lucky enough for having it working on your devices. Since the previous build there's no sign of improvement, it just won't turn on on my 640.

    My guess is that "moving around" is a feature that didn't make release date and will arrive in an update.

    Not having it moving around does make me nervous.

    since we're talking about OLED tech in the screens of these phones, power usage isn't a concern.

    Burn in is though, which is why this thread is here for the most part.

    Mine definitely moves. Not as fast as my 1520 did, but definitely moves.

    Hmm interesting. Well good it's not just the 950 then. Thanks for the confirmation.

    How often, what distance?

    I have noticed the time and date are in a different location on my 950. It's usually at the bottom, but I've seen it at the top while plugged in a couple of times. It seems to stay at the bottom most of the time though.

    Yeah same. Mine just stays a the bottom. I can tell cos it sits in front of me at the desk at work.

    On my 1520 with W10, it doesn't move. I usually allow the glance screen to stay on when charging--which is at night with night mode on, but now that it doesn't move, I've decided to turn that setting off. I believe it wasn't included with the Glance update with W10.

    I actually don't want it to move around, it bugged me. I want it to be in the exact same place as the Lock Screen.

    I just find that hard to believe. How does it not use much power??

    Believe it or not. It draws almost no power, just a bunch of pixel are ON and with superlow brightness. It did not draw much battery on my LCD lumia 920, it draws practically none on a OLED 950.

    OLED's can turn on individual pixels, meaning that only the pixels that make up the clock and data are on without having to light up the entire display like traditional LCD's saving power. See: Android's Active Display

    Even if it is an LCD, my 920's battery wasn't hugely affected by glance because of the very low brightness and not being on all the time.

    "Burn-in" really only happens due to the blue oled requiring more power to get same luminous output. So the more power it uses the shorter its lifespan is. So with the diamond matrix pentile it's arranged in such a way that allows for it to use less power and get the same results. There's more green subpixels which the eye is more sensitive and less blue ones that are made larger. Honestly, with todays oled displays the lifetime is pretty good. You will likely be getting a newer phone and it will still be working fine. I haven't heard of anyone getting burn-in with the diamond pentile layout. Then again who knows how different factors contribute. I know on my brothers 925 the glance screen moves around the screen. It's likely MS has faith in the lifetime of the device or just hasn't implemented this feature yet.

    Well, worth noting I've seen burn-in personally on a Blackberry Q10 and have read secondhand accounts for the 1020 and Galaxy S 4, all with the diamond PenTile layout.

    So its better I imagine, but I cant say its perfect.
