The screen timeout time is the period of time it takes for the screen of the HTC One M8 to sleep or turn itself off. There is a variety of options, ranging from fifteen seconds all the way up to one hour. The selection depends very much on personal preference.

    If you like the phone to stay turned on and not time out, select a longer amount of time such as "1 hour." This will ensure that the phone doesn't time out for a very long time
    .

    If you like the phone to time out very quickly, choose something shorter such as "15 seconds." The shorter times save battery life because when the screen times out, it uses less of the battery's power
    .
    The longer it stays turned on, the more battery it uses. That is very important to remember when making a choice.
