    Friends, do you really miss or feel a need for Glance in general day-to-day usage? Is not having Glance a deal breaker while considering a new device?

    Nope, I came from the 928 and haven't missed it at all, sometimes it's useful but not a major feature for me.

    I also have a Moto X and active display blows glance away, so maybe that makes me care less about not having glance.

    I miss double tap to wake more -- if I had to choose just one of those two features, it would be double tap (even better, allow it to go to sleep with a double tap as well).

    Now, I do miss Glance a bit, especially when I pick up my 928 (the house is simply riddled with smartphones hahaha), especially for the discrete time check capability, but overall, like I said above.

    Yep. It changed the way I use my phone. Would love for it to come to the Icon.

    That could be problematic especially when playing games. Double taps happen a lot on your phone. :)

    Perhaps the app can disable that, though?

    I really have to say that I do miss Glance in every day use. Not a deal breaker though.

    Using a Lockscreen tile app pretty much makes it double tap to sleep. First tap - Windows Button. Second tap - Lockscreen tile.

    I'd really like double tape to wake on the Icon... *cough* Verizon *cough*

    Yep, I keep pulling my Icon out of my pants pocket like I did my 928 waiting for it to show me everything without having to press the power button. Drives me nuts!

    Regarding double tap to sleep -- I have an LG G3 in my possession for the moment, the way it implements it is you need to hit an otherwise not in use part of the screen. So during a full screen game, I don't think it would be an issue.

    Nah, I miss double tap to wake though :(

    Glance was always a little glitchy for me. I'm sure through updates its been better but I haven't used it since my 928.

    That makes sense. I wasn't saying that it wouldn't be possible, but it would have to be well thought out or it would drive me crazy.

    I honestly thought I would.... After living with the ICON for a while after the 928, it's just as easy as hitting the power button 2 times (one to turn on to see time/notifications and turn back off)...I actually get more information that I did with Glance....

    Would it be nice, sure but, deal breaker ? No way....

    One reason I would like double tap to wake is to save wear and tear on the power button (plus it's so intuitive, and works fine on my 520 and 928). Of course, I doubt I'll be getting around to it anytime soon, since it seems like they will be tying it all in with the 8.1/Cyan update.

    Yea but, it claims that it eats up battery quicker....With the heat problem and ok battery life on the DP, I would not risk shorting out the battery more..

    The Icon definitely runs warmer than my 928, and battery life is thus far quite unremarkable. If I hadn't been able to upgrade free and keep my unlimited data I would have just stayed with my 928.

    Fwiw, after the initial teething problems with Glance on the 928 (if I recall, you had some as well), it has worked basically flawlessly since then for me.
