How to Use Galaxy S20 Power Saving Mode with Emergency Mode

In this tutorial, I will walk you through the fastest way of activating power saving mode on the new Samsung Galaxy S20 handset. Here’s how to enable and use Galaxy S20 power saving mode through the notification panel.

Running low on battery is inevitable among smartphones. That said, any device can run out of battery regardless of its battery capacity. Depending on usage, a device can run out of power quickly. Thankfully, advanced power features are already embedded into most, if not all modern smartphones. By enabling these features, you can stretch your phone’s battery life and wrap up all things that need to be done before your phone runs out of power completely.

The galaxy s20 comes with a 4,000mAh battery capacity. It’s apparently smaller compared to the Ultra version. Nonetheless, there’s a way to stretch that capacity to more than enough to get you through the average day. Read on for more information.

While in Power saving mode, battery consumption is limited because a lot of services including flashlight are turned off. As a result, the battery life is extended. 

Power saving mode can also be accessed through the settings menu. Apparently, this is a longer process compared to the above steps.

To access power saving mode through the galaxy s20 settings menu, simply go to Settings-> Device care-> Battery menu. From there you will see different power features you can use. To access and activate Power saving mode, you will need to tap on Power mode under Power management section then select the mode for longer battery life. 

Power saving features like this usually come in handy whenever your device runs low on power and you badly need to use it.

Among the available power mode options are high performance, optimized, medium power saving and maximum power saving.

By default, your phone is set to use optimized power mode. This means that the recommended balance of performance and battery life is currently applied. 

There is also an adaptive power saving feature that can be enabled to set the power mode automatically according to your usage patterns. 

And that covers everything in this tutorial. Please keep posted for more comprehensive tutorials, tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your new Samsung galaxy s20 smartphone.
