If you've ever wished that the screen on your Android phone or tablet stayed on longer before going to sleep, you're not alone. Luckily, this can easily be adjusted in the settings with just a few taps. Not only that, you can prevent your Android device from sleeping while it's charging, too.
The term 'screen timeout' refers to the time it takes for your smartphone or tablet to go to sleep (the screen turns off) after you've stopped interacting with it. The average screen timeout sits around 30 seconds to one minute, depending on your device. For many users, this is acceptable, but there are times that you might wish that your phone didn't go to sleep so quickly.
This may be useful while you are using our Apps for reading or listening.
Depending on your phone, the Display Settings can appear in a tab or window, but will you give the same options.
To get started, go to the Settings > Display. In this menu, you'll find a Screen timeout or Sleep setting. Tapping this will allow you to change the time it takes your phone to go to sleep.
Certain phones offer more screen timeout options.
Select the timeout option that you'd like, and you're done. Keep in mind that the display is one of the biggest battery hogs on your phone, and a longer screen timeout setting can, and likely will, lead to faster battery drain.
