    Hey guys,

    So i just recently became an android user after being an Apple user for 10 years.

    And one of many things annoys me and its that the screen goes black while watching videos on Instagram. I never had this problem on my iPhone. While screens playbacks a video, an iPhone screen wont go black.

    However, on my samsung it does.

    I personally found two solutions but both suck.
    1. increase screen time out
    2. Activate "smart standby" which is a function that the screen is one while you are looking at it. Although many of you may think this is the solution, for me this is another senor i need to keep on which reduces my already ****ty SOT (about 3h, and im a low lvl user. I do some what app, text, phone calls and instagram)

    So, any other ideas on how to keep the screen on without doing any of my already mentioned methods?

    Welcome to Android Central! You're using the Instagram app, and not the website, right?

    Any power-saving modes turned on? Go to the Battery or Power menu and look for a Battery Optimization option. See what happens if you turn off optimization for Instagram.

    No sir, nothing like that on. It does not turn off the screen while watching youtube. This problem seems to be only with instagram. But then again, i only use instagram/Youtube as video playback applications so i dont really know if these problem consist with like Twitter, Tumlr, Facebook and so on.
