    Can't see the video but technically there must be a tiny amount of battery being used for lighting up those pixels

    If you pull your phone from your pocket and gather all the info off of Glance in just a couple of seconds max, it would use a very small fraction of a percent... So effectively 0%.

    If you turn on the screen and look around for notifications lit up on all the tiles reporting to Glance it might use effectively 1%.

    I think it would be a bit overly literal to interpret it as meaning absolutely 0%.

    Might be literal, but that is exactly what this MS exec said...

    I believe that especially with 15 minutes time default and auto switchoff when phone is in a pocket or folded.
    Maybe 1% is leaving Glance always on like a desk clock

    Likely it is rounded down and based on how often glance actually is turned on by the user. If it's on all the time it may use 0.X% battery so you can effectively say 0%. If it's using amoled and using Red night time mode 24/7 then it could actually be insanely low. With lcd because the diffusers have to go on then you are definitely wasting way more. But who knows how they calculate it.

    I didn't know Glance worked on lcd also, never heard before. Isn't it only on OLED?
    On my 520 I used Night watch for a all night ol style lcd bars red clock, but surely it uesed energy a lot due to retrobrighting always on

    Well it works on my Lumia 830 and that's LCD. I think now that OLED manufacturing has become cheaper than LCD, there's going to be more OLED phones out there.

    Glance works and is enabled on the L640 which is IPS-LCD.

    So back to the point, does the fact that it's organic, somehow cause the battery to not be used. Panos, a senior MS exec, would not say "Zero" so emphatically without vetting it. Or, another point for the upcoming class action...
