A52s 5G lock screen timeout defaults to about 3s

Hi

How do I increase the lock screen timeout to something sensible? It seems to default to an completely unusable 2-3s.  Just to be clear... the lock screen and not the  screen timeout once unlocked. It should not be necessary to use a 3rd party app for this.

Thanks

FBR

With Power saving enabled, timeout is some 3 seconds as you mentioned.

If you disable Power saving mode, the timeout will be extended to some 5-6 seconds. But it is still not enough. So I agree that there should be a setting where you could customize the lock screen timeout. Seems that at least at the moment that is not possible.

@FullBridgeRectifier: I'm sorry to hear of your frustration surrounding the screen timeout time while accessing your Lock Screen. I'm not sure if this will help, but please try heading to Settings > Advanced Features > Motions and Gestures, and enable 'Keep screen on while viewing'. This will use the front camera to detect your face while you are looking at the screen, and may prevent the phone from timing out before you've had a chance to enter your Lock Screen security details.

Thank you. Spot on with the power saving affecting the timeout. 5-6 seconds is almost usable 🙂
