"Screen timeout" is the time it takes for your Android device to go to sleep i.e for the screen to turn off after you've stopped pressing anything. For lots of customers, this is fine., but there will come a time when you will hope that your smartphone won't go to sleep so rapidly.

Or you are reading a walkthrough for a video game and only intend to want to find out what to do next without pausing. This is how you can get your screen to stay a little longer.
