    Hello everyone,
    Can I set my phone app to not go dark so quickly when I'm on a call, especially with the keypad up. When I'm on a call and needing to key a number for the call, I have to press the button to relight the screen. Too long a press, or a multiple press, and I hang up the phone.

    what phone do you have? i have never heard of a way to control the screen timeout while you are on the phone......so i'm not sure if that is possible or not. it is definitely not on my note 10+

    Its a Galaxy S9. I haven't found an "official" way of lengthening the backlighting, but maybe someone has found a workaround, or wonder of wonders, the manufacturer reads forums about their products for ideas and fixes.
