    my problem is that the screen dims & then turns off during a call. i can't believe there is no option to leave it on. how are you suppose to press numbers when you are required (banking etc). i shouldn't have to keep pressing the power button to turn it on.
    i have tried smart stay & it works for a day but it doesn't work 90% of the time & is pretty useless.
    i know there are sensors that turn screen off when you hold to your ear but this has nothing to do with that. i never hold the phone to my ear. i always use speaker or Bluetooth headset.
    i just want the damn screen to stay on & have to option to turn it off if i want to.
    i have been with Samsung for a few phone models now but this is almost a deal breaker.
    anyone know if the HTC has this option or is it just an Android thing.
    my phone is Galaxy S3 4.2.2

    funkylogik share the love peeps ;)

    Think i know what you mean. So the screen is timing out? I suppose you could just tap the screen when it starts to dim

    yeah but it sucks that you don't have the option to have it stay on considering all the options you do have.
