Turn Off Hero 5 Display

I saw that 1 year ago, someone posted in this forum, asking how to turn off the hero 5 display, so that it may be operated (exmp. filming) without wasting battery via the display. Until this day, this problem has not been solved. Has GoPro given any insight on this problem/ are they working on this, or does this seem to be a Problem that does no concern Gopro, despite the high demand for this feature.

Re: Turn Off Hero 5 Display

Dim the brightness. move on. they  got the camera out, and that is what matters the fixes are future firmware.
