    So I am coming from the HTC one M7, So far I have spent a couple days with the S5 and one of the features I would like is the lock screen (simple swipe) however, after 15 or 30 min I would like the phone to lock and require a pin to unlock.

    Phone stays in my pocket, somehow it keeps pocket dialing people. (I currently have it to lock with pin after 30 min.)

    I would hate to punch in a pin every time i look at my phone, but say if I am away from it for like 30 min, I would like to punch in the pin then.

    The HTC one had this feature where it would lock it, but only require a pin after 15 min. Does anyone with an S5 have the same issue/solution?

    Settings>Lock Screen>Lock Automatically. You can then chose to lock automatically, after :05, :15, :30, 1m, etc.

    That option doesn't allow swipe lock instantly then pin lock after 15 min.
