Is your Samsung smartphone consuming more data or WiFi? If yes, then Glance might be one of the reasons behind it. Basically, Glance changes the lock screen images at a certain interval of time or periodically. It uses your mobile data to fetch high-quality images. Sometimes, it will be exhausting when your smartphone runs out of mobile data, so you have to turn off the Glance feature on your Samsung Smartphone.
The actual meaning of Glance is to take a quick look at something. Glance is the in-built feature on some Samsung smartphones that includes customized content driven by Artificial Intelligence. This feature shows different images under a new theme/story on your Samsung lock screen. In addition, you will also get ads, short videos, pictures, etc. It keeps your smartphone’s lock screen active. Hence it may consume more battery.
