Ultra power saving mode helps save battery power by applying a simplified greyscale theme to your home screen and limiting the number of usable apps.

 

Enabling Ultra power saving mode from the quick settings panel

 

1.    When on the Home screen drag down the notification panel from the top of the screen.

 

2.    Scroll to the left on the quick settings panel then tap on U. power saving.

 

Scroll left

 

 

The current battery percentage and estimated maximum standby time information will be displayed for ultra power saving mode.

 

3.     Tap OK to enable Ultra power saving mode.

Note: once Ultra power saving mode is enabled the device will:

  • Limit access to default apps and to various other apps that can be selected from a list.
  • Deactivate the mobile data connection when the screen turns off.
  • Deactivate the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals.

At the bottom of the screen the remaining battery power and estimated battery running time is displayed.

 

The estimate maximum standby time shows the approximate amount of time remaining while the device is idle before the battery power runs out.

 

This time may vary depending on your device settings, surrounding environment, usage patterns and actual device usage. Essentially, in ultra power saving mode you can make phone calls, send messages and browse the internet, and do little else beyond that.
