Few things are more annoying to be reading something and the screen turns off because you wear a while without touching it. It is very good that Android has ways to manage the battery consumption that makes our terminal, but it can be very cumbersome to have to be touching the screen every certain amount of time (or, worse still, having to unlock the phone each time it is turned off).

You’ll see that the two procedures are very simple, although you have to know where to go. We enter in the field right now.
