    I'm very excited about the new phone! I missed AMOLED! Unfortunately, I can't seem to get it to lock. I've setup a PIN as well as my fingerprints, and I have the Screen lock type to fingerprints. Whenever I lock, then later go to unlock the phone, all I have to do is swipe to get in. It doesn't ask for a PIN nor does it ask for my fingerprint. To verify, I even tried turning on the screen with the lock button rather than the home button. I've looked through the settings 3 times now looking for some kind of a grace period, but I can't find one, and if there is one, it's longer than a few minutes. Would someone enlighten me?

    Mine did that for a while after I set up the fingerprint unlock. Try setting screen timeout to "immediately after lock button"

    I found this setting under Display, but "immediately after lock button" is not listed. I only see 15 seconds to 10 minutes and some in between. It seems to change when the screen turns off. It doesn't seem to affect when it starts asking for a PIN.

    After leaving it for about 10 minutes, it did ask for a PIN. So there is a grace period. I just can't find where it can be changed.

    Got it! It's "Secure lock time" under "Secure lock settings."

    I like the trusted lock feature. Now I can have it automatically unlocked at home and in the car and then locked everywhere else.
