    Is it just me or is the Glance screen clock moving up the screen? Mine is currently(plugged in) covering up my background image.
    yeah it does that when you charge the phone, im guessing it is almost like a screensaver for your computer, since the glance is always on when you charge

    I keep looking at it's always in different places, so that makes sense. Just as long as I'm not going crazy haha

    It does that to prevent burn-in on AMOLED screens.

    And, maybe to drive you crazy ;)

    I agree with this. With Glance there are too many steps to get the phone "open." The phone should allow Glance OR Wallpaper.

    Glance should have more notifications and Agenda build in like the Wallpaper screen has. Actually brief local weather like in the Night Stand Clock app I used to use before Glance would be nice too.

    And then double tapping should take you straight to the "open" phone mode or Password entry if you pasword is in effect. But i DO like the double tapping to activate. I have never really liked the Nokia position of the On button. I preffered the physical Home button on the Samsung Focus Flash I had before the 820.

    I do like how glance can be a quick look (a "glance" if you will lol) at the current time. I know I use it in class and other places to peak at the clock. and then when I am looking to actually get into my phone, I just use the lock button as normal and it takes me to the lockscreen. But I do think that the next step would be for nokia/MS to release an option to turn the lockscreen off and just use glance

    Duh! Wasn't enabled. Enabled it and boom. It works. Thanks.
    I thought that was the case but I didn't want to accuse you of overlooking the #1 easiest option so I had to come up with something else that would send you to the same settings area :) haha!

    I was saddened by the fact that that only allow 4 backgrounds. I tired doing the justice league icons, but I only got 4 :/
    You need to click the little (+) at the bottom and it will take you to your photos where you can pick from anything saved to your phone or your cloud.

    No, no no no no. If instead of the glance screen if it just went straight to your start screen you'd be screwing up your apps all the time, haha.
    I'd love to see an advanced "double tap" though that was a [tap+swipe up]....And that woke the phone and skipped the lock screen (straight to Pin or Start)

    I mean for the multiple backgrounds. We can only have 4 backgrounds at a time alternating in Glance. Which is fine if it's just a beta things(and I'm hoping it is).

    Either way I'm find sticking with batman, superman, flash, and green lantern for now. :D

    lol maybe. but I still think it would be cool to be able to open the phone with just a double tap of the screen and no swipe. at least give the option for people who want to do it that way.

    Is there a way to influence the brightness of the Glance screen? I don't know, but I seems on my Lumia 1020 it's a lot less bright than on some pictures I see on the forum of people taking pictures of their Glance screen setup. Changing the global Brightness settings doesn't do anything.

    Are you comparing the same hardware? The other pics might not be of a 920 and the different screen types would affect that.

    My glance screen is not bring at all, and that is a good thing, less battery drain.
