I work as a tattoo artist and I'm really struggling using the tab 8 ultra. I use my tablet as reference on a stand while working but unfortunately it turns off after 10 minutes and I can't seem to find a way to get around this

If you are able to have it connected to a charger you can toggle this setting on in developer settings. If not there may be another way, would need a min to look into it.Screenshot_20230907_235426_Settings.jpg

I have thought of that but need manoeuvrability and hate cables hanging about

Or the other option is to use this setting which keeps the screen on when being viewed with the 10 minutes timeout on at the same time.Screenshot_20230908_000459_Settings.jpg

I've tried that as well and because I'm not constantly staring at it turns off I've been into developer options still no luck 😭 I moved from apple to Samsung and haven't been overly happy with my experience but this has made it far worse

Just touch the screen once every 5 -10 minutes and it will continue to stay awake for a further 10 minutes after each tap.

Oh I know what you can do. I've done this before. Prop the S in such a way that the S Pen pointer appears on the screen, as long as the pointer is on the screen it will remain awake. Does that make sense?

Essentially this but it can be done way better. Hope there can be a better solution available in future.20230908_214426_1000004957_1694205984.jpg
