We’ve all been in situations when we’re running low on battery life, without a charger at hand to help us out.
While there are a range of clever tricks to help keep your battery going for longer, there are plenty of other techniques that simply won’t work. One of the best for Samsung users is the Emergency Mode feature. For most, it’ll be a relatively unknown feature, but in fact, it acts as the best way users can keep their device running for longer when out and about. Essentially, Samsung Emergency Mode strips back your device to just its core functions. So things like making emergency calls, basic text messaging services are both supported, but you won’t find any major apps, clever animations, or even a coloured display. True to its name, Samsung Emergency Mode is an extreme way to save battery life, but definitely worth enabling when you need it. Here’s how to set it up in just a few steps.
Step 1: Long press on the power button on the right-hand side of your device until the power menu appears.
Step 2: Instead of turning your Samsung device off, instead select the Emergency Mode option that’s listed at the bottom.
Step 3: An overview menu will appear, outlining all the key features of Emergency Mode and what it does for your device. Once you’ve read the overview, hit the Enable option listed at the bottom.
Step 4: Your device will now go to greyscale and Emergency Mode will gradually take effect on your device. Once this is done, you’ll be automatically on your device’s new-look homescreen.
Step 5: Play around with the various functions, and check out the battery life monitor at the bottom to keep a close eye on your remaining battery life.
Step 6: Once you’re done using Emergency Mode, long press the power button again and switch the Emergency Mode option to disabled. Your device will now revert back to its original state.
Emergency Mode is a great way to prolong your device’s battery life when it matters the most. Of course, it’s fairly extreme, but it works wonders when you’ve no charger to hand.
