    I was in Ultra-power saving mode and I think I selected one of the TouchWiz options. I'm not sure which one.

    Now, my phone is stuck in what looks like easy mode. It's also all in gray scale.

    I have limited access to applications and the only settings I have access to are:
    Wi-fi
    Bluetooth
    Airplane mode
    Mobile networks
    Location
    Sounds

    There is no option to get out of the mode.
    Restarting doesn't help
    Removing the battery doesn't help

    I have not tried reset to factory and would rather not.

    Welcome to Android Central! Sounds exactly like this: I turned on Ultra Power Saving Mode & "Touchwiz Home", and now I'm stuck.

    Yes, this was my initial questions (didn't have an account yet), but that thread was exactly what I needed. Sorry I didn't see it before.

    Bless the Android community!

    Same procedure worked on Windows:
    I fixed it! Here's how I did it:
    1) Downloaded Nova Launcher.apk on my MAC
    2) Used bluetooth to send it to my phone.
    3) Ran it on the phone.
    4) Went into Nova Settings and changed the default launcher to the normal Samsung launcher.
    5) From there I could easily turn off Ultra Power Saving Mode.

    Thank you everyone who tried to help. I really appreciate it!
