Why do you want to keep it on?  You could accidentally dial something with your face.  Can you please explain a little further?

Go into the Accessibility settings on your phone and you should find a setting that says Power button ends call.  If you turn that off, when you're in a call, just tap the Power button to turn the screen back on.

I did the same. Power button ends call but screen backs after 1 minute.

I'm not sure I understand what you said.  Is the power button ends call setting on or off?

After pressing power button, call disconnects. But! screen does not appear. It remain black. It appears after approx 1 min.

I think you should turn the Power button ends call feature off.  If you do that, then anytime during the call, tapping the Power button will light up the screen, but it will not end the call.  At the end of the call, tap the Power button, and touch the red hang-up button on the screen.



There's a reason the screen goes dark during a call.  You have no way of knowing what your face will touch.  You could even accidentally end the call without knowing it.  It's better for the screen to be dark while you're talking, unless you're on speakerphone, in which case, the phone isn't next to your face.
