Hi there 

 

Could anyone assist with 2 settings I'm struggling to change.

 

When I top my power button to light up screen without entering passcode it stays lit for 3 secs how do I extend time as with my previous model it stayed on till i pressed button again.

 

Second issue is that if I'm using keyboard in any message related app and hit power button it causes the keyboard to freeze on screen and I can only by pass by getting back into phone via restart.

With the screen timeout go to Settings>Display>Screen timeout and extend the time upto 10 minutes if you want, I'm not sure you can have it switched on permanently though, although if you're like me you can't leave your phone alone for more than 10 minutes. 

 

As for the keyboard freezing in messaging apps, does it happen in your native messaging app? If not it could be a bug in the app itself, have you checked for updates on these apps to see if it fixes the freezing issue?

In regards to your keyboard problem @Seanskibeats, can you head to; 

Settings > Apps > More (Three Dots) > Show System Apps > Samsung Keyboard > Clear Cache/Clear Data.
