    How do I lock the current display screen so that I can pass my phone over to a friend for him to look at it without having him then accidentally hit the back button and lose the current screen display?

    I don't think such an app exists, let alone a setting. While it makes sense in the case you're describing, though. Even when taking pictures, I can't tell you how many times I've hit the darn button myself by accident.

    This happens just about EVERY time I hand my phone to someone to watch a video or look at a picture, usually when the phone is in landscape mode.

    They almost always hit the screen off button, the volume button, or as you stated the capacitive back button on the bottom.

    I've not tried this app but it may do what you want. Read the second paragraph, sounds like what you want to do.

    But, this just might lock the touch screen only and not the capacitive back button. Worth a try.

    It's worth mentioning that if using MX player, one of the best video players, there is a padlock icon which will mostly isolate the playback from unintended touches.

    The standard player does this as well when you hit the power button.
