The automatic screen lock feature is a great one – after a period of inactivity, it automatically turns your screen off, preserving battery and also preventing other people from accessing it (provided you use security measures like a pin code or facial recognition).
Now depending on how you use your phone, you may want it to turn off incredibly quickly or only after a few minutes. Thankfully, you can adjust this time period pretty easily – or you can disable the function altogether, although we don’t recommend that.
To change the auto-lock time, first, open your Settings app. Tap the Display option and scroll a little down – you’ll see the option Screen Timeout – and underneath you’ll see the current setting.
Tap it and you’ll be prompted to select from options ranging between 15 seconds and 10 minutes. Pick the one you want and it’ll be applied immediately.
Tip: If you want your screen to stay on permanently, you can do that too – simply go back to the main menu, tap on Lock Screen and then activate the Always-on Display option – your phone will still lock but you’ll be able to permanently see notifications and your clock.
