Every smartphone on the market has a screen timeout setting that allows users to set how long it takes for a screen to turn off automatically. And there are arguments for short and long timeout settings.
Some people may prefer a super-short timeout (say 30 seconds) as this theoretically helps improve battery life and reduces the risk of screen burn-in on OLED phones. Other smartphone owners may be prone to a longer timeout (a minute or more) so that they don’t have to unlock the device again for a while. You can even set a timeout of 30 minutes with the phones from Google.

Personally, I usually set my screen timeout to a minute or two. That way, if I’m briefly distracted, I can quickly pick up where I left off. And I get very distracted. Leave a comment below with your thoughts on this matter!
