    The Glance screen to me was one of the most minor features to the Amber update when I read about it here. After using my 1020 for a week I have to say it's one of my most liked features. It's so convenient and with the AMOLED screen I have been able to set it to always on with no battery issues. If we could get it to show a email, txt etc counter/icon it would be perfect!

    The night mode looks like a really cool feature. When I used BlackBerry I liked bedtime mode for dimming the clock. The clock on the BlackBerry still was in white, just not as bright. The red WP Glance night mode would be even better as a clock on one's nightstand.

    Honestly, I don't use it. I wear a watch so the glance screen doesn't mean much to me. A year ago, it might have been more useful (I was between watches at the time).

    I love it! This was a very breakthrough feature I was missing from my old N9. I still am missing the other 50% though, the notifications on the screen. Nothing beats simply glancing over to your phone and see if you have a missed call/text/email/etc. I think WP does not have the API calls for Nokia to use, otherwise they would have added it. Hoping for this in future updates.

    PS Motorola recently copied this in their upcoming phone and I predict they will market the crap out of it.

    This! Totally agree - if they can add the information that they already include in the lockscreen to the Glance screen, this would be a great feature add!

    Pretty useless to me until we start seeing notifications.

    I had it turned off because I was scared it was a battery drain and also for AMO-LED "Burn In". As others have stated, the fact it doesn't show notifications usually forces you to hit the power button anyways.

    Would like for lockscreen notifications to be moved to glance screen too but double tap screen instead of using power button; this brings up the lockscreen w/o using power button 😊

    It's one feature that has become a must for me using Symbian and MeeGo phones.
    Though having no notifications present (like on Symbian and N9) makes it mostly useless for me. Because then you need to take the extra step and check the lockscreen.

    After notifications are implemented, the I will be more than happy.

    I think that all old N9 users have been missing it and double tap too ... I have it on Lumia 920 now, even it is not amoled screen, some is absolutely better for this purpose.

    Anyway, I hope that too, that Nokia will improve it in the next update, to have some simple notification to tell us that we should check our phone (for message, call, etc.)

    the new Moto X has this feature too but they did it so much better. they included notifications! I think I'll be switching over to try android since I'm getting impatient with waiting for microsoft to bring updates with useful features for real life use. That's why I'm thinking of getting the Moto X. 4 reasons. Their glance screen, handless voice activation, customiation, and as mentioned above, I'm getting tired of waiting for cool mindblowing features from Microsoft. Android seems to be getting amazing features all the time. I don't remember where I heard this, I think it was on a WP podcast or something, but sometimes, you just want to be on the winning side. I've had the Samsung Focus, and now the Nokia 920, fyi.

    I like it, even though I wear a watch. I just wish you could turn it off when it is plugged in and charging, don't need to see it on all night. I ended up just flipping the phone over each night now.

    Wait, Glance Screen doesn't show notifications? All this time I thought it did but if it only shows the time then it's not as useful as I thought. I was looking forward to this!

    This shoudn't be an issue, because the clock moves slowly up and down the screen if you have it on all the time.

    Totally agree, it would significantly boost the usefulness of glance screen.

    What's interesting though is that battery charging shows, but notifications don't.

    The reason it doesn't show notifications is because of Microsoft's incompetence. I wish Nokia had full control over WP's development.
