    Updated my 925 to Black this evening and now the Peek setting in Glance won't work.
    All other Glance settings unaffected.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    *Update* It DOES work but not now in low light as it used to. You could Peek in the dark pre-Black but not now.

    Are you using glance background app? I've noticed some issues with glance on my 1520 when I have a background on it. I thought it was a sensor problem. I disabled glance background and now it's back to normal.

    After turning the glance off.. go to home page and lock your phone. Again unlock and then turn glance to peek. Thats all i did. Make sure you quit the glance seeting once you set to off.

    Not got the Glance background installed - I thought it looked cheap and tacky so that's not a factor.
    Tried turning off Glance, switching phone on and off then resetting to Peek again and still the same - very intermittent operation.

    The same problem with glance. Glance is up to date, phone lumia 925 32gb. Glance peek works well in day light, but not at night.

    Working ok with both my 925 and my wife's 1020.

    Anyone else notice that the glance clock is smaller with black.

    Same here with Peek. In dark you have to try harder to make it work. Before black it was ok.
    I hope they will fix it.

    Yes they've tightened the font kerning up and dropped it a few points. Making space for the notifications I suppose.

    My 925 is doing the same thing and I do not have the Black update yet. Maybe another update brought this bug.

    It was GDR3 that made it harder to use peek in the dark when hovering your hand. It was the first negative thing I noticed,
    it just takes getting used to.
    And I don't know why they would fix it, if it's been there since some of us signed up for the Preview for Developers program
    in order to get GDR3 and that was back in early October.
    They would have had plenty of time to fix it in 2.5 months if it was something deemed important enough to warrant a fix,
    obviously they haven't.

    Note: I don't have Lumia Black

    I've had the GDR3 Dev preview for three months now and this is the first time I've noticed the problem. However, two of those months were on my old 820. This has definitely only manifested itself on my 925 since Black.

    Also notice the red sensor light too now in the dark. I swear that wasn't there yesterday either!

    The red sensor light was there before black. I noticed it about 3 weeks ago.

    Also how are people using peek? I got used to it on my old S4 and the way it was activated on that was to move your hand down to the phone as if you were going to pick it up and then move your hand back away from the phone before you touch it as opposed to the way you change the Web page (on S4) by sweeping your hand across the phone.

    The reason I ask is because I don't have a problem with peek on 925 or 1020

    Same here, but i don't know when happens. If was after or before GDR3 (weeks ago) or Black Update (yesterday).

    Need to put my hands on infrared to show Glance screen.

    My red light comes on as soon as I press the power button and the Glance time appears.

    Got the black update yesterday and glance peek works just fine. Have only used it in fairly well lit room though.

    Have the exact same problem. After black I noticed that when in low-light conditions (ie during night time) I can't get the peek to show glance screen to see the time :) Contacted the local support but they are useless. Let's hope they fix this, eventually. Shame that there is no way to calibrate this sensor.

    Use interval mode instead peek, works perfrect.

    Saw early reports of this with 920 owners, I have the 928 and definitely have the same problem as well.

    But this is not a solution. Ms should work out this bug.

    My car makes a whining noise when in top gear.

    Yeah, stay in 1st, that'll fix it.
