    Hello guys (this is the first time I've written you a thread),
    to avoid to put under stress the power button (I've a nexus 6p), what's the best lock screen app?

    I will be grateful for any help you can provide.

    Yes, and most of the "simple" apps seem to have that problem; Gravity has a workaround for it. Also, if you pay the $2.89 fee for the unlocked version, it comes with a number of widgets that can be used to immediately turn off the screen just like your simple app does.

    Thanks N4Newbie.
    I'm waiting for the "bug fix"

    I guess I'm not really clear on what you're asking for - you want a method to turn the screen OFF without using the Power button, or you want a method to turn the screen ON without using the Power button?
    If the former, just set a very short timeout for the screen; if the latter, just use the fingerprint sensor to wake the device.

    I don't understand what a special lock screen app has to do with either of the scenarios that I listed.

    I've been very happy with Next Lock Screen, but that's just me.
