Last Update Date : Jan 17. 2018

* Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.



Power Saving mode minimizes battery usage to extend battery life; there are two types: Power saving mode and Ultra power saving mode.

Power saving mode: Activate power-saving mode and change the settings for power saving mode.
Ultra power saving mode: Extend standby time and reduce battery consumption by displaying a simpler layout and allowing limited access to an app.


To use the Power saving mode, do the following:


1. Tap and hold on the indicator bar, and then drag down the status bar from the top of the screen using two fingers and tap Power saving.
2. Tap Power saving mode and then tap OK. If Power saving mode is enabled, it will help save battery power by limiting the device’s functions.




Alternatively, on Settings, you can activate the Power saving mode and set the details:

1. Tap the Power saving on Settings.
2. Tap the Power saving mode.
3. Slide the Power saving mode switch to the right.

If you activate Power saving mode, be able to restrict the performance, background data and device color.
Restrict background data option: set the device to prevent apps that are running in the background from using a mobile data connection.

Restrict performance option: set the device to limit resources, such as reducing the display’s brightness or turning off vibration when keys are touched. To save more battery power, enable at least one relevant function.

Greyscale mode option: set the device to display all colors as grey tones.
