    Razr screen turns off when I'm watching a video. The screen is set to turn off after 1 minute. My droid incredible does not have this problem even with the screen set to turn off at 1 minute.

    I am not really interested in setting the screen to turn off at 30 minutes or never. There must be some bug or setting I'm missing? Help

    Is there a setting in your video app that you can change to keep the phone awake?

    No app. Just watching videos in the browser. Both stock and opera browser do it. Ideas?

    Screeble is a great app that you can set certain thresholds that will keep your screen on. Free in the Market.

    Thanks for the app suggestion.

    Shouldn't the screen just stay on by default if I am watching a video (via web browser or app)?
    What about the rest of you? Does your screen stay on while watching videos?

    While it does seem reasonable to think it would stay on for a video, my screen will shut off on the browser, regardless of what is happening inside the browser.

    My HTC phones never turned off for video. Any of you other razr owners?

    Nope.

    Remember about one thing - you can install loads of different video players and set them up the way you like.

    Also, Screebl was initially reported as a major battery hog. If you see a big drop in battery after install, that's the problem.

    Would make sense since it is designed to keep your screen on at certain viewing levels. Adjust the range to no activate unless the screen is at a viewing angle. :cool:
