A little poll: How long is your screen timeout set for?

All smartphone on the market have the screen timeout setting, allowing users to adjust how long it takes for a screen to automatically turn off. And there are arguments for both short and long timeout settings.

Some people might favor a super-short timeout (e.g. 30 seconds), as it contributes to better battery life in theory and reduces the risk of screen burn-in on OLED phones. Other smartphone owners might lean towards a longer timeout period (one minute or more) so they don’t have to unlock the device again for a while. Google’s phones even let you set a 30 minute timeout period.
