    I do think it's interesting that you can turn fast charging off almost seems to support the the theory that you might not want it on all the time...

    I have been using it since gs5. With Less than 10%, I text, read articles online, and Facebook for an hour on my commute. Never had problem. Always had enough to come home and recharge it. Always surprises me that it hasn't been turned off. I guess your battery or something has problem.

    I use it all the time and will continue to mainly for one reason... The Note 4 has a removable battery so by the time one dies I could replace it with another.
    I don't think it will "die", but it will simply reduce the available run time very gradually day by day.

    I think he's meaning don't use fast charge every day, not the ultra power saving mode.

    Yes. Ultra power saving mode is actually better on battery longevity since you reduce the discharge rate.

    I turned mine power saving on last night with 95% and woke up to 74%.

    Worried the ultra will kill my alarm.

    Go to settings, battery, and Uncheck fast charging.

    Hi Guys, Is there a way to configure Ultra Power Saving Mode to automatically activate after phone drops to a certain battery percentage. For example if phone reaches 10% can it be auto set to switch to UPSM?

    One important note---> do not have the phone plugged in while going through these steps, otherwise it won't let you unchecked the fast charge option.

    Does UPSM really prolong battery life as it claims?? I put UPSM on when my battery dropped to 10% and it showed I can use for another 8 hrs or so but actually it lasted only 1 hr or so😂

    Sounds unlikely.

    What were you doing with the phone while it was in UPSM?

    That 8 hours was standby time remaining, not active screen/cell/data on time.

    I used it when I found myself in the ER with no way to charge my phone. I don't use it regularly though.

    After using UPSM, the only thing I don't like is that I can't use Chrome. Some may think it's not a big deal. While it truly isn't that big of a deal it is annoying to not have my bookmarks and history sync with my Google account. But alas, I guess you shouldn't really worry about that if you are in UPSM.

    Are you sure you were using "Ultra power saving mode", and not the less intense "power saving mode"?

    From what ive read, ultra power saving turns the screen black and white and shuts off everything except calls and texts. Meaning you couldnt have used facebook. Its supposed to last like a day on 10% battery... not only a couple hours.

    If i go to sleep and simply use flight mode, my phone stays at 100% battery, too, or at most loses 1%. I want to like UPSM but can't remove Samsung internet and Samsung messaging. I use chrome and hangouts and Facebook messenger exclusively for my comms.

    Also, I've been separately testing the restrict background data function which UPSM turns on and found that messages don't show up until i actually open Hangouts and then open the specific conversation and only then does the incoming message show up. I'm guessing Samsung messenger periodically manually polls servers to update its incoming messages.

    So while in UPSM , for my usage scenario, it's severely crippling to NOT be made aware that there are incoming texts waiting... It makes the phone as useful to me as just turning it off

    Thoughts?

    So I've been experimenting with simply using regular power saving with brightness all the way down. But the issue of restricted background data makes it a deal breaker and the background data issue is the biggest battery drainer (aside from screen).

    Forgot to mention i use Google voice, too, so the normal Samsung phone dialer also does not work lol.. I need to be able to use hangouts dialer. Ahh, first world problems

    On a side note, since the Lollipop update on Sprint, I have been getting a "phone fully charged" or something like that once the phone is done charging. Anyway to disable/stop this notification from appearing again?

    Of all the very limited apps to have in UPSM, Facebook is one? How about the camera? hangouts? If I'm going for max battery, Facebook is absolutely last on my list.

    I went on a 3 day camping trip and used a combination of PSM w/ greyscale and airplane mode. Did a little FB when I had wifi, and some texting when I had signal. No voice though. Got home after 72 hours with 24%, including a lot of "full use" on the 2hr drive up and back.

    I would have used UPSM the whole time, except I needed text/camera and to enable/disable it takes too long.
