I know that you have probably been impressed by LG’s G4 crisp and bright 5.5-inch Quad-HD display, but this doesn’t change the fact that many owners are disappointed about how long the LG G4 screen stays on. With the LG G4 default “Screen timeout” option set to no more than 30 seconds, it’s obviously that you might have some problems and want even more time.
The good news is that there is a way to disable the LG G4 screen timeout and make the screen stay on longer. This Android feature is known as Stay Awake, but be careful as long as is not set as a default, so you are the one how must enable it. And if this option is too much for you, then feel free to simply change those 30 seconds into another option which suits you much better such as one minute, two, five, 10, 15 or more.
There are though a few factors to consider when you start playing with your display’s settings. To be more precise, one of the main concerns is none other than the battery consumption. Adjusting your display timeout is more than useful, but keep in mind that this also means that it consumes an even greater amount of energy.
