    Hello all,

    As the title suggests, is there a way to view the lock screen without pressing the lock button on the Lumia 950? The reason being if you wanted to glance at the phone to view the time, I know you can make glance stay on all the time but for battery purposes I like this to eventually time out.

    Everytime I press the lock button it starts the Iris check but all want to do is check time. So is there some sort of tap feature to wake the lock screen up to just show the time/date etc?

    Many thanks

    Glance is auto off when phone is in a pocket o folded in a case, thanks to proximity sensor. Glance battery use is almost zero. Try it hoovering hand on top screen and you see glance off

    Yep. Glance always on. If the phone is out, get in the habit of laying it face down and Glance turns off due to proximity sensor, or if placed in a pocket.

    Glance turns on when you flip the phone over or remove it from your pocket.

    Mine glance is set to 15 mins. But as said, it turns off when your phone is in pocket or the sensor is covered in some way. If you phone lays more than 15 min then just swipe your hand over the sensors area and it turns on so you can see time.... i'm 100% sure if i turn glance to total off, i'll get almost 0 win in battery life. I'm medium user and 20% auto brightness is on and glance turned 15 mins i'll get easily whole day usage.

    Right now i have 1day 3hours since last charge and 24% left
