Your Samsung Galaxy S10 has a couple of features that can keep its screen on. A feature called "Always On Display" will show details like the time, date, and various notification icons even when the phone is sleeping.

By default, "Always On Display" isn't really on all the time, but you can easily change that in your settings.

In addition, you can change the behavior of the main S10 display so the screen remains on as long as you're looking at it this is an incredibly convenient feature, since many phones shut off the display even while you're looking at it, since it's unaware you're still paying attention.
