Changing your display timeout will affect your battery life, though

One of the first things I did after getting a Samsung Galaxy S5 was extend the timeout period on the display. By default, the screen shuts off after 30 seconds of inactivity, which not only means you have to wake it up again by hitting the power button on the right side, but if you’ve got a lock code in place, you need to go through that rigamarole as well.

While this sort of flies in the face of our top tips for extending your Galaxy S5 battery life, you have to balance that with having your phone work the way you want it to work. If you find yourself bothered by the same thing, here’s how you fix it.
