    Hello sir, to be honest, I'm not sure if any of us know exactly why the 520 will never get Glance abilities. However, this does get people looking forward to a new phone with more capabilities. So good luck, and may the odds ever be in your favor. o.o

    The lack of Glance on the Lumia 520 has nothing to do with lack of ClearBlack, and the comparison to Asha handsets is absurd. The Lumia 520's inability to support Glance has absolutely nothing to do with RAM, ROM, CPU, or GPU. The LCD just isn't capable of functioning desirably at extremely low power levels. Glance doesn't require much on AMOLED screens - there's really no special power saving that needs to be enabled, but LCDs need to run at extremely low power levels in order to prevent excessive battery drain. The Lumia 520's relatively cheap display is incapable of running at such a low power level.

    Again, ClearBlack has nothing to do with it. ClearBlack is a polarization filter that improves viewing angles and makes blacks "deeper." It has nothing to do with power usage.

    You've certainly cleared a lot of air.but, I am sure that the Asha 501's screen is cheaper than L520. Then how does it support Glance but 520 doesn't? I think it is so because Nokia didn't want to give this feature in a cheap set.

    Look bro,
    Nokia used dual screen for A501. which means, glance is displayed on low power screen. Same technology was used for Symbian phones.
    Lumia is totally different range, we cant expect it on our device as it simply can't support. Even it does support, it will drain battery.

    Check your self,
    Install T:ME from store and it has sleep mode which works like glance, and let me know impact on battery.
