@kimoTaher: For clarity, are you wanting to prevent your phone from going idle while using it, and while accessing applications? If so, please head to Settings > Advanced Features > Motions and Gestures > Keep Screen On While Viewing > On. Also, head to Settings > Display > Screen Timeout, and increase the time it takes for  the screen to automatically go into idle mode.

@kimoTaher: Apologies. Please swipe up from your Home Screen to access your App Drawer > Tap the cog symbol to access Settings, then head to Advanced Features > Motions and Gestures > Keep Screen On While Viewing > On. I hope this helps.

Thank you everyone for the help it worked because I put it for 10 minutes instead of 30 Seconds but I also did a hard factory reset it worked but am keeping an eye on the screen the whole time to make sure It doesn't do it again if it dose what do I do

AndrewL - would this work for using Apps like Mapmyride. Just got my S20 FE and went for fir

st bike ride but the screen went black after a few minutes. The app was still working as you could hear the commentary but I could not see the speed, distance etc.  I had an A8 previously and managed to get that to stay viewable but for the life of me I cant remember how.
