Use power saving modes on your Galaxy phone

A phone set to Optimized Power mode

Never let a low battery surprise you again. Use your phone's different power saving modes to make its battery last longer every day or in critical situations.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model. The use of power saving modes can affect app and device performance; some tasks and features may take longer to complete or update. Additionally, apps running in the background may not receive updates or send you notifications when power saving modes are turned on.

Medium power saving mode

There's a long day ahead of you, and you want your phone to survive from morning to night. Use Medium power saving mode to make sure your battery lasts all day. 

From Settings, search for and select Power mode. Tap Medium power saving, review the mode's settings, and then tap Apply.

The mode's options can be customized before tapping Apply. For example, you can turn on AOD (Always On Display), but please keep in mind that changing the settings will affect your phone's battery life.

From Settings, search for and select Power mode. Tap Maximum power saving, review the mode's settings, and then tap Apply.
