    Should be noted, while nearly ALL the older X2Y series phones have it listed in their specs. The 930 doesn't (as you mentioned) but neither does the 630 or 635. Same with the 1320 and 525! The only recent phone that does list it, is the 1520.

    ​I have never heard...does the 1320 and 525 include glance or not?

    I think it will have glance, the only reason the icon doesn't have it is because Verizon is going nuts

    It isn't listed on the full specification page on the Nokia website. Whereas it's listed for models like the 1520, 920 etc. I would suggest that it isn't supported, crazy.

    So I guess they can't get glance to work properly on 1080p OLED screens.

    there is literally no other reason why they wouldn't have it in this or the Icon. Hopefully it will be brought in an update.

    Disappointed but still going to buy the 930

    ps there is "screen double tap" in the full specs on the nokia website - http://www.nokia.com/global/products...pecifications/

    This is exactly how it was with the Icon as well, which does not support Glance.

    Hopefully ATT works there special magic and gets a better variant or something with glance screen AND microSD card support because that is a deal breaker in this day and age!

    The 928 has an AMOLED screen and that thing supports glance....I dunno how much different OLED is to that though.....All the others that have glance screen are LCD type.

    The 1020, 925, 928 all have AMOLED screens and Glance (AMOLED *is* OLED, and they aren't throwing passive matrix OLED's in these phones either, so when they say OLED they mean AMOLED as well).

    Double-tap is in no way connected to the Glance Screen. It should bring double-tap to wake along with the rest of the current improvements. Only the Glance screen is missing for some reason (I honestly don't use it at all so I haven't bothered to look too much into possible reasons for that).

    I'd have a very hard time doing without glance screen now that I've gotten used to it.

    NOKIA, when u give something, u have to keep what u gave and IMPROVE IT and add new features!
    not Omitt features we already had!!!and what about double tap to wake up AND TURN OFF THE screen

    Im sorry but this is .F....... UP!

    As for Microsoft! 4 quick settings? after all this waiting?!
    couldnt u make them 5 or a scrollable 8!!!
    and why is BRIGHTNESS not included or maybe a Slider for brightness!!!!
    i am really disappointed after waiting all this time. of course this is better than nothing! but still ! give us some REAL LOVE!

    what about being able to hide or lock videos as well as pictures?!

    WHAT ABOUT INCLUDING A MICROPHONE INTO KEYBOARD SO I CAN SPEAK INSTEAD OF TYPING!
    Guys just check ANDROID and give us some better imporved stuff!

    when i get wp 8.1 on my Lumia 920, im keeping it and i dont see a real reason to move to 930 and pay a big difference!

    The absence of Glance for the L930 is a deal-breaker for me, mainly because Glance is the only way to see persistent notifications beyond the lock screen. If the L930 is never getting Glance support, then I will skip it and wait for something else.

    You should try it, it's the best thing to happen to smartphones since dumbphones.

    It should be noted that the Icon currently has neither glance or double-tap. I actually do think that they are connected. It's encouraging to see double-tap listed on the 930's specs.

    Feels odd to me that the 920 I bought a year and a half ago feels superior to the Icon/930. I was really looking forward to upgrading. I have double-tap, glance screen, and what is (IMO) a much more aesthetically appealing design. I'm sure the Icon/930 is superior in other ways (like true rich sound recording), but those are things I won't be utilizing nearly as much as the things it lacks.

    Still unsure whether I'll jump to the gargantuan 1520 (RM-938 variant) or just wait to see what the holidays have to offer.

    To be fair the biggest selling point over the 920 will be the PureView 20MP camera. Should be quite a step up over an already stellar camera and the camera is a major selling point for a lot of people.

    Then the faster processor is something that would be nice but not necessary, my 920 doesn't feel slow!

    Yeah, the camera should be better. The 920 ain't too shabby, with Purview and OIS which was a huge step up for WP. But if we're to buy or upgrade phones once every two years, say, I'm not sure the camera alone is worth the upgrade. Sure there are other things about the 930 that make it superior to the 920, but some things that are inferior as well. Aesthetics for one (at least IMO), and the 930 doesn't have glance, and might not even have double tap.

    I'm curious to see how our 920s will perform with WP 8.1. I'm itching for upgrade but the 1520 is just too massive and the 930 is underwhelming to me. I was so much more excited when the 920 was announced.

    Great, at least now i have no reason to abandon my 925, it'll stay with me until it dies and Nokia releases a proper lumia with no features missing. I want glance, they got me used to it, and now i cant be without it.
