What is Emergency Mode and how do I use it on my Galaxy A5?

Emergency mode enables you to extend your device’s standby time when you are in an emergency situation and you want your device to conserve power to extend its standby time for as long as possible. 

 

When this mode is activated the screen’s brightness will decrease and some of the device's functionality will be limited in order to conserve your battery's charge.

 

The home screen will be changed to a black theme to reduce battery consumption. You will be able to use the Phoneapp to make a call to a specified contact and also to make emergency calls. You can also turn on the flash and sound alarms and send your location information to others in a message.
