It is very strange that The Lumia 630 and the Lumia 920 both have IPS LCD screens. The Lumia 920 has the Glance Screen feature, whereas the Lumia 630 doesn't. What is the reason for that?
Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
People normally say that it's an issue of the hardware. What I want to know is that the New Asha Series had the glance screen, even the lowest 230 did! Microsoft should allow the user to enable or disable the glance screen and make it available to all the Lumias. :angry: Even 730 doesn't have the glance screen, if I remember correctly.
someone should give an explanation on this ...
found this on the latest app update of Extras + Info
how does this have an effect on lumia 630 h/w limitation speculations !

that's just a random thing in the extras+info. that tells us nothing.
its just there. I dont know what to tell you.
seriously ?? tells us nothing ....
it tells us whichever version of built in s/w is there inside the phone ....
varies in different models for eg in L630 it doesnt show the accessories agent version
so that means it tells us whichever version of built in s/w is there inside the phone ....
and i dont think Glance screen is a H/W limitation coz that IPS LCD screen can handle low levels (not extreme) with ease.
that gotta do the trick ...
yea, and what does that version number tell us?
I still think its a hardware limitation. I hear of 630's flickering on low brightness. and if it was just low, it'd eat even more power.
But regardless of display, my chief issue is the lack of a proximity sensor to govern Glance.
that version number tells us the version of the software modules installed in the phone system like message handler app handler etc ..
they are s/w modules
its true that screen flickers at low but thats when we goto less than 10%
proxy sensor is the crippling factor
glance screen could make work with the power button
like one press for glance screen and then touch on the sreen to show the lockscreen
Sure, but without additional information, we don't know what differences there are.
So less than 10%, well I fear Glance would be going below that if my 920 is any benchmark.
If the power button were to be used to activate Glance, I think it would defeat the entire purpose of Glance, since the lockscreen shows the same info anyway and would slow down turning the phone on/unlocking the phone.
I know you may be bent on the feature itself, but I think at this point, the benefits of working on workarounds and trying to throw the feature out for the sake of checking the feature box isn't going to work too well.
