    Sorry, Nate, but this is something different. What you were expierencing, was a blocked / interfered proximity sensor by the glass. Maybe after two months, the glass was intransparent enough, to just slightly push it over the edge. When you cover the proximity sensor, like when you have it in a pocket, glance is turned off. On the 950XL, the proximity sensor is located left of the Iris camera. You can easily see it in bright light.

    What this thread is about is a really dim and slightly flickering glance screen, probably flashing and having the right brightness a split second after activating.

    Had this problem after I switched from Redstone back to Threshold and updated the FW. If this is truly HW issue, will try to get an exchange. might try Redstone again and see.

    The recent fast insider builds (last two or three) turned off the glace option in settings. Go to Settings > Personalization > Glance screen and turn it back on.

    Again, other thing. See description above.

    Dim, flickering on low level, maybe a little purple, flashing to normal brightness a spilt second when activating (after switching off display). Is most probably a HW issue, as no WDRT, hard reset, RS, TH changes anything. At this point in time nothing solves it but changing the display assembly (or phone).

    Facing exactly the same issue. If it is the HW issue, it would be so sad...
    I can do replacing the phone because I bought it from US but I live in Laos (3rd world country), love the phone anyway.

    Damn - I have this problem now with my 950XL. Glance screen flickers and goes dim. I take it from most of the replies that it's a hardware issue. Not sure what options I have in the UK now...?
