How to enable Galaxy Note10+ Power Saving Mode

Power Saving Mode is one of the mainstays in Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note10 and Note10+. There are actually four modes under your Samsung Galaxy Note10 Power Mode but since you want to save battery power, we’ll only mention Medium and Maximum power saving modes. These modes can effectively slow your device’s battery consumption by limiting the processor’s (CPU) speed, lowering screen brightness, disabling background data, among others. If you’re using animations, wallpapers, other connection features, biometric authentication, or apps drawer, they will be disabled if you turn on Maximum Power Saving Mode. Don’t worry though, you can get them back once you turn the feature off afterwards. With Maximum Power Saving mode, you’ll also notice that the home screen will be changed to a very minimalist, dark theme.
