Activate Always On mode for more than 10 seconds on the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G


OLED or AMOLED screens have ideal characteristics to be able to permanently display images or graphics on your screen while consuming a minimum of energy. This is something that precisely the modes exploit Always On, which allow you to always display something on the screen without consuming more energy. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G it also has it, although it is not as we would like.

The Always On modes do not always keep the screen on permanently, this is precisely the case with the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G, which only keeps the screen on for a few seconds. Therefore it is not what we expected from a screen of this type.

There is a way to always keep it active

Mobile phones do not normally display information on screens for one main reason, power consumption. Precisely they are not usually used in phones with LCD screens because to make it work we would have to turn on the screen completely throughout the day, so it would never turn off and consumption would skyrocket. In the case of AMOLED screensLike that of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G, the Always On mode only turns on the necessary pixels to display the time or essential information for day to day.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G

The problem with this phone is that It is only capable of displaying the Always On mode for about 10 seconds, so it is not exactly what is meant by this modality. Well, there is a trick so that it is always active, and it is within the developer options that as you know we can activate on any Android phone, that is where we will be able to activate a function that in turn will allow the Always On mode not be temporary, and yes permanent.

Avoid 10-second Always On mode

Well, what we must do involves activating the developer options from Android. Therefore, if you have any qualms about activating it, you should leave the tutorial here. In any case, it is something that should not affect the daily use of the terminal. You must do the following:

  • Access your Xiaomi settings
  • Enter the phone information
  • Press up to ten times in a row on the MIUI version

always on Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G

Just before the phone is activated, it will notify you that the development options will be activated. Well, it is one of these options that removes the limitation of use of the modo Always On.

  • Enter the developer options
  • Disable “MIUI Optimization”

Now you will see how the Always On mode is permanent, and is not limited to 10 seconds. Of course, it is best that you try it for yourself, because having the deactivation of this optimization mode can make some apps may not work properly. In fact, some permissions are restored, which will have to be given to different applications again. Therefore, yes, the objective of a permanent Always On mode is achieved in the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G, but each one of us must assess to what extent it suits us, due to energy consumption and operation of the applications. If you are not convinced by the result, you can always go the other way and activate the optimization again.
