Being an Android addict, I can remember that how hard I tried to increase screen lock time in Android. I looked into forums, blogs but nothing helped. I googled Android apps for increase screen lock that but mostly were paid once. But, the thing is I never looked into settings of Android phone myself because I thought that settings only come with Nokia symbion like phones but I was wrong. It is obvious that screen lock time settings should be in display settings of smartphone but I was very dumb enough to understand that.
