    Where is the setting to stop the screen from dimming or to set a timeout request on an LG V40 Thinq phone, when the display becomes inactive as when in a phone call or reading?

    When the device is in a phone call, and the unit is held to the ear, the proximity sensor will automatically turn the screen off for battery savings.

    It should come back on as soon as the unit is pulled away from the head and the proximity sensor is uncovered.

    Thanks! I meant will it dim on a speaker call? Forgot to mention that part.

    Yes, it might revert to the screen timeout that you have set.

    There are some apps that can keep your screen on, but remember that this will drain your battery.

    Probably the best method is to open Developers Options and use the Stay Awake feature.

    This will let the screen dim after the set timeout, but it will not go completely off.

    It will only be active while the phone is charging, so it will not drain the battery.

    This is especially useful in the car, both during calls and for playing music.
