Power Saving Mode

Power saving mode limits your device's performance to conserve battery power. You can choose which features you want to restrict. You can turn on Power saving mode manually, or set your device to go into Power saving mode automatically.

Note: Battery power consumption depends on factors such as network configuration, signal strength, operating temperature, features selected, vibrate mode, backlight settings, browser use, and applications' usage patterns.
