    Title Feature request: turn off screen when connected to HDMI
    Device OnePlus7Pro Software Version O2 Stable 190917
    Topic Suggestion
    Feature Needed Background Description This would be useful during screen mirroing when displaying hdmi over type c to prevent phone from overheating and to prevent screen burn in risk
    Any other comments
    I know some phones have this feature built (like many sony phones) in and there's an app that requires root but is it possible to get the phone to disable phone's screen when in screen mirroring mode over HDMI or something. having the built in screen running generates alot of heat and risks burn in. i know i plug my phone every once in a while and i'll be doing it more in the future. Would this be a possibility?

    That would be indeed something. Maybe even to have the choice (like an Windows feature) to actually really use only one display, so an external one would be recognized as the only display of the device. Would allow to use certain apps, that are restrictive in that matter.
