    Hi,

    I've had quite a few Android phones over the years so I forget if this is a native Android thing, or I got it from some other manufacturer's skin.

    Anyway, I'd love to be able to add a delay to the lockscreen kicking in . Currently whenever my screen sleeps I have to unlock the phone to get back in (this in spite of having Smart Lock, which isn't working properly...).

    Is there some way I can set it to no lock for x minutes? I know with some phone I had this ability, but can't seem to be able to do it on the N5X.

    Thanks,
    Toby.

    Have you looked in settings... Lock screen and security? You have a delay settings in there...

    That's the thing, I don't seem to have anywhere to select a delay. Here's my Security screen (and nothing off the bottom of this screen has anything, either).

    Awwww heck, I just found it (!).

    I'd been touching on the words "Screen lock", not realizing that the gear icon to the right has different functionality. It's in there... False alarm, sorry.

    Well done! You have to poke around in the settings, there are so many.... 😄

    I have tried to utilize that setting, but my phone doesn't seem to respond to changing the delay setting...

    Is it tied to power saving, perhaps?
