    Default Phone screen won't turn off while charging

    When I plug my phone in at night to charge I turn the screen off and all seems well. But as soon as the phone receives a notification the lock screen comes on and won't turn off. I have it set to turn off at 15 seconds but no luck. It only does it while charging. Anyone else see this? I have thee US version, not the super duper version.

    Not sure if its the same for the S3 but try this go into settings, find developer options should be under the category systems, then look for stay awake if ur phone won't shut off while charging it will be checked just un check it then should be fine.

    I'm saying that when you pull down settings that u will have to look around I do not own one or played with it but what your looking for is called stay awake. It makes your phone stay on while charging. Look under display, on my nexus its under developer options

    I think I have it fixed. Simple fix I was overlooking. In settings menu, dock, keep home screen on. I turned it off, not sure how I turned it on to begin with. Thanks for the suggestions

    I have used a 4s, one x, and skyrocket in the last year. So I have used all of the top tier devices. The G3 and One X are very even in my opinion. If it wasn't for lack of expandable memory I probably would have kept the One X. The camera on the One X was outstanding and the screen was in a league of its own. Compared to the Skyrocket The G3 is very similar. The G3 is what I would call the Skyrocket on steroids, it does everything smoother and faster than the Skyrocket. Out of all the devices the 4s has the best camera, but that's about all I would say it could do better. I do like the look of the G3 pebble Blue, but all of the devices look great.

    G3 pros
    Does everything smoothly and fast.
    LTE is blazing fast.
    Camera has lots of great features.
    There are so many shortcuts and gestures to this phone it can take a while to find them all.
    I like the look, especially the blue. It feels as good as it looks.
    Battery life is an improvement.
    I can network the phone to most of my devices at home.
    It has expandable memory.
    There should be plenty of aftermarket cases and devices on the market soon.

    Cons
    Camera is not as good as One X and 4s.
    It is kind of slick and I'm afraid I may drop it. I don't want a bulky case. I need a tacky battery cover to help grip it.
    Screen is good but not as good as One X.
    Not much else I can think of for cons.

    Does this setting keep the screen on ONLY when it is on a "dock"? Maybe I only think I know what a "dock" means. Will this setting keep the phone display on when plugged into the plain old charger cord? Currently I am using the widget "Stay Awake" to get the phone to stay awake when on the charger cord.

    Unchecking the STAY AWAKE option worked for my Galaxy S4. From the home screen touch SETTINGS--MORE--DEVELOPS OPTION. Thanks for the help.

    If you are having trouble finding the "developer options" on your S4 here's how to get it:

    follow the instructions on this link
    How to Enable Developer Options on the Samsung Galaxy S4 | Haptic Antics

    my phone didn't have it visible until i followed those steps. Then you will be able to find the "stay-awake" option

    Gail,
    Have you looked in the Developer options on your tablet to see if there's a similar setting? Perhaps if you posted this in the relevant forum you'd find someone that has already posted the detailed steps for your device.
