Nokia migrates Display into main Settings area to join its siblings

Display Touch Glance

Yesterday we reported on Nokia making some changes to its Display + Touch settings area, where you can configure some options for the Glance screen, altering display properties and adjusting touch sensitivity. The company has split up the panorama panes into separate settings entries to help with familiarity and easier to notice when first using a Lumia Windows Phone. 

Today an update has been fired out stripping Display from Display + Touch, renaming it to Display and placing the entry on the main settings menu, mimicking yesterday's move. Display now sits comfortably with Glance and Touch offering a quick and convenient way to access all three without having to dive into a single area and swipe a million times, hoping for the best.

It's now less confusing to change options for your Windows Phone with more direct access to Touch, Glance and Display settings.

You can update your Display + touch on the Windows Phone Store or by scanning the below code. Thanks, Al, for the tip!

Nokia migrates Display into main Settings area to join its siblings

I think so too maybe in a group setting and also there is this: New software is available for the Nokia Lumia 925! Check out: http://t.co/kLPyaphiWt Have a great night! T-Force ^KM
I tip WPCentral earlier this morning but just got an email saying mail unable to be delivered.

Maybe we can have more sub settings like
 
General
Personalize (Display, Audio , Theme , ringtones etc)
Connectivity (WiFI, BT, NFC , Location etc)
Applications
allowing us to pin these sub settings separately
 

True; it just shows the time, charging status, and vibrate/ringer status. It's probably to do with how the software accesses that information - those 3 things are all at 'hardware' level, whereas Facebook alerts and new SMSs, for example, are software (simplified).

The new Glance page has a "Clock and notifications" toggle. It's interesting to now see "notifications" in there, although it does nothing, and lock-screen icons do not appear. Also interesting is that if you turn this toggle off, Glance still gets activated, but with an empty screen.
Lumia 920 here.

WRONG WRONG WRONG! You Are simply Wrong.
 
Nokia didnt combine settings, instead, they separates settings.
How do I know? Well, everyone, adjust your system time to year 2213, then tap Glance or Touch, there will be pop up menu ask you do you want to uninstall or buy. Click buy, you will see they are actually separate apps!!!

I just tested uninstalling some of those app from Nokia with that. I uninstalled touch and now my screen is so laggy xD

I like how the new Touch menu says "and Windows Key", yet it does not actually have any settings for the Windows key.
Less confusing. Right.

I heard on Twitter that GDR2+Amber will be released around mid-Sep on EE in the UK. Might be the same period for AT&T.

WP have the crappiest menu setting I ever see.
bunch of setting and no submenu, no hierarchy, no sorting, change order after update,....

Can't they add some icons in from of every option. Really tired of scrolling all over the place just try to find the switches for WiFi and connectivity
