    Except when you turn your phone off and the first spot that the clock jumps to is the exact same spot, every time. Glance spends a majority of its time at the bottom of the screen. I find it hard to believe that Microsoft, Nokia, Daniel Rubino, Paul Thurrott, and Brad Sams are all lying about this.
    No one is lying, it really doesn't matter if its AMOLED or IPS LCD, if one hasn't experienced screen-burn in, they won't support it. I have owned both the 925 and the 1020 for a brief period of time, never had any screen burn-in issues with Glance always ON. Again you could be right and I am not defending anyone here...just saying that it hasn't caused any issues on mt T-Mobile 925 and AT&T 1020. Microsoft not enabling the feature could as be as simple as lack of display memory to save costs or just to create segmentation

    The display lacks what is called "display memory" that is needed for Glance to work. It isn't about the type of display it is, it's about if it has the memory to do it or not. Please, for future reference, search. This information was brought to you by Daniel Rubino.

    they'll sell you the "hardware limitation" bull****, for sure. the reality? chances are its just....MARKETING
    you see? glance can really be limited by hardware, that's a fact. but alot of phones don't have it due to marketing strategies and extracosts(which i dont think they are so much, what? 5 extra bucks for iterating it from other phones?)
    let's look in 5xx family. 520 has it, 530 nope (but no surprise, since that phone is a flop), then 535 arrived without it too...ok, hardware limitation. then...532 has it. but there is no way 532 to literally have a better display than 535. i bet it has the same display just smaller.
    Correction, 520 has got no glance, just double tap to wake.

    what about the clear back display tech? i think devices which don't have that tech will not support glance screen
    No... Lumia 730 has clear black display. But no glance screen. There is no connection between clear black display and glance screen

    They're not lying about it, per se. But AMOLED has come a very long since the days of the Nexus One. Keeping the screen at high brightness is much more likely to degrade the organic pixels than a very dim clock which is glance.

    Burn in mostly a non-issue with new gen AMOLEDs. For the 930 not to have it is inexcusable cost cutting tactics. It has pentile AMOLED which is more efficient than the RGB one used on the first gen Moto X and yet that still has glance-like notification features. So does the new Moto X. So does the Nexus 6. All AMOLED, and all with display memory, with glance-like capabilities used boldly.

    New gen AMOLED panels have years of 'half-life' which is the point when the pixels degrade to half their brightness level (mostly blue ones, which is why you see a blueish colour coating on the display when it's off to compensate). You're far more likely to change your phone before it even gets that degradation.

    well said bro its just marketing strategy
    glance screen works with the help of proximity sensor. same used to turn off our display while we call.
    it has nothing to do with screen. and for lumia 730 the double tap option to unlock the screen is also slow. and gestures beta also works very sluggish. if you are updating it to windows 10 you don't have control over navigation bar which is very annoying. so MS have to improve a lot with touch navigation bar. I hope MS will provide glance screen in the near future. and lumia 730 is very much disappointing compared to 720 in all sense.

    It has a lot to do with screen, as explained before in this thread. And the 730 only lacks glance and camera button compared to the 720, so no, it's not disappointing at all

    lumia 730 and 930 has opted out of the glance because for the time being these are the only two phones that come with the blinking LED notification light. so for the promotion of this new feature nokia/microsoft has decided not to hqve glance in these two sets. if asked personally to me i would prefer a notification blinking LED. it consumes much much less battery and also looks cool. not messy like the glance

    Windows 10 MAY activate it. (unused hardware in phones isn't unheard of - see FM radio on many phones across the board, etc.)

    I hope it does.

    The reason of the problem with FM radio activation is mostly countries policies. Some countries minister of communication asks for a fee to use the antenna so they don't activate it to save money.

    Glance is not messy at all and the extra battery consumption is not even noticeable, neither on Amoled nor LCD screen.
