Samsung Galaxy S5 'Ultra Power Saving Mode' explained
posted by Victor H. / Feb 24, 2014, 9:54 PM
The end result can be summarized in just one sentence:
"If my Galaxy S5 is down to only 10% battery, it can still last up to 24 hours in standby."
That’s how a Samsung executive briefly explained the benefits of the new power savings mode, and we think this speaks this is an impressive statement.
Battery life overall has been improved in the S5, and it should last 10 hours of web browsing and 12 hours of video. It also has a user-removable battery, so you can put in a new one when you can’t reach the charger for days. But right now, take a look at our quick look at the new battery savings mode on the S5.

Why wouldn't you want a black screen? That looks nice. Functionality over beautiful looks any day. Why I'm running foxhound on my s4 right now. So fast, clean, battery lasts a long time, mostly black and white/aosp. Why I run my windows 7 to look like windows 98. Performance. Speed. Clean.

wait a second, I have an s4 i337m, you mean you can have black and white screen with foxhound rom? I'm now running liquid smooth and I'm very pleased,but this b&w feature it's so appealing and I want it now , by the way, does foxhound overheats the s4?, it happens to me when using heavy stuff so I'm looking for other alternative even it's not as hot as with stock rom

Come on PA no matter how many articles you type about the S5 it's not gonna make it better. It's a ugly phone.

haha all these haters, I wasn't and am not especially interested in another Android phone, but I almost feel like buying a Galaxy S5 just to parade it infront of all the haters now. :)

Samsung Galaxy phones over your Grandma's life cause I dont really care about her. Why are people with old phones even complaining about the S5? You should just shut the hell up if you have an S3. I have an S4 and it never failed me, so I will gladly buy the S5 and or the Note 4 when its released.

This the same as Lumia 1520 battery saver mode, but instead of 24 hours it would say 1 to 2 days left......from everything I read in these articles on this website they pay more attention to these features then whats under other phones......Lumia 1520 have the same LTE advance for 150, battery saver mode on Lumia 1520 can add additional days on my phone, the question is do this one really work, my lumia gets charged every 2 to 3 days because of the battery saver.....all I am saying if they are willing to post all these articles they should give other phone companies the same here it is from Nokia website Data Network LTE max data speed DL: 150 Mbps LTE max data speed UL: 50 Mbps
