    Have you tried Tasker?

    Hello,
    Is there no free way of doing it?
    My mate has Andriod 9 in his Oppo and it has this function.
    Did they remove it in Andriod 10?

    Thanks

    I don't think you can have it switching ON from OFF mode, I'm fairly sure though that you could set up a routine to switch OFF.
    If it is for battery saving and do not disturb reasons you can set it up so it wouldn't use more than 1 or 2 % overnight and not make any sound.

    thanks, I made a Bixsby routine to run airplane mode at night to save battery.
    Shame there is no option to turn the phone off completly.

    If you download Goodlock from Samsung Store, routines is just 1 of the software made to enhance galaxies. I checked the Routine, and it would be a couple of clicks to put it in power saving mode when sleeping /desired.
    It has a few other features worth exploring too. The car Routine is something I use every time I get in the car.
    Good luck

    You can always include an automatic restart in the routine if you want.

    The OFF and then ON again hours later on your friends Oppo phone is obviously not a complete OFF but more like a very deep sleep, same as the function that you are creating with a Bixby Routine

    I know of no app able to power down, and then turn on a device through a macro. As above, there is an option in Settings for a restart.
    Maybe rooted phones can do more, but that's not something I'm into.
