Glance screen settings page on Lumia 950 XL
With the new Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL handsets, the trusty Glance screen is receiving an update. A screenshot taken from a Lumia 950 XL display device at a Microsoft Store, reveals the settings options available for the feature. Users will be able to determine how long the time and other lockscreen content will appear in standby on the Glance screen. A new option allows a color background photo from the lockscreen to be displayed. As usual, content from the lockscreen that can be toggled on or off includes the date, notification icons, and a detailed app status.
As simple as the Glance screen is, the feature has been well received by Windows Phone users. Variations of the idea have been employed on Android handsets by manufacturers like Motorola.
