Glance Screen is something that Nokia had on their Symbian phones for a while now, but the nomenclature is new. Basically, it brings in the ability for Nokia’s Lumia Windows Phones to display a clock on the standby screen along with a battery level indicator and most importantly, double-tap to wake functionality ala Nokia N9.
As a result, the phone will always show you the clock on it’s standby screen, even when it’s not in use. And at night, the phone uses a dimmer version with more minimal text and indicators, so as to not disturb you. The feature works great on AMOLED displays where individual pixels can be turned on or off, though there’s no word on how exactly it’ll work on LCD screens like the one on the Lumia 920.
The Amber update is coming to other Lumia Windows Phones next month, but in the meanwhile if you have a Nokia Lumia 925, check out Glance Screen and let us know whatchya think of it, eh?
