    Or pinch your fingers together on the screen.

  2. Touch Widgets.

  3. Swipe through screens to locate Smart Manager widget. Touch and hold the Smart Manager widget

  3. Touch BATTERY USAGE to view detailed information on battery usage since last full charge.  

  4. Touch Power saving mode or Ultra power saving mode to set your device to conserve battery power.

    • Power saving mode: Power saving mode helps save battery life by limiting the maximum CPU performance, reducing screen brightness, turning off touch key lights, vibration feedback and reducing the on screen time out when notifications are received.

    • Ultra power saving mode: Ultra power saving mode restricts access to most applications, colors are reduced to black and white, the amount of home screen info is limited and your Bluetooth and location settings will be turned off.
