How to Adjust the Screen Timeout on an Android Phone

Running applications (or apps) on an Android phone is notorious for using up battery power. However, leaving the screen display on is also one of the biggest battery killers. If you want to leave your phone on, but want to save power, here is how to adjust the screen timeout.

Procedure:

Step 1. Go to your phone menu and tap on “Settings”.

Step 2. Find and tap on “Display”.

Step 3. Scroll down and tap on “Screen Timeout”.

Step 4. Choose the time limit you want.

* 15 seconds.
* 30 seconds.
* 1 minute.
* 2 minutes.
* 10 minutes.
* Never turn off.

Step 5. Learn that more battery power will be used on longer timeouts or if you select “never turn off”. If the phone is being charged, timeouts aren’t an issue.
