    So Right now I am running at 720. I wanting to see how big of a difference it made on battery. I feel the battery isn't great. So far it's helping. I have a couple screen shots to share hope it helps. I'll be posting more screen shots through out the day.

    The Setting is in device management, battery, and the three options for power saving mode. Click on it it will give you options.

    Ok., I'm going to open a can of worms AND possibly confuse everyone...

    On my Galaxy S7 I somehow figured out how to configure the home button to give me a magnifier option and/or a greyscale option if I click it three times in succession.

    So triple click home button and a menu comes up with "magnifier" and "greyscale".

    Ok the window says "Direct Access"...

    Found it...
    Accessibility >Direct Access

    Toggle it to on, select what you would like to be accessible in the menu when you triple click the home button. Now I don't know that greyscale actually does anything for battery life or not...but it's an interesting thought. Other options in that menu are TalkBack, Voice Assistant, Universal Switch, Magnifier Window (basically same functionality as what you get with the S pen, but no pen needed), Negative Colors and Grayscale. There is also color adjustment and interaction control which require additional settings to be set in Visual and Dexterity accessibility options.

    I was wondering if there was going to be a thread with more crazy people than the "at&t box is ugly" thread. You haven't made it yet, but tour getting there.

    The best way to save on battery is turn off the device. Other than that, it's a phone, that dies a lot. Battery use is going to be one of the side effects. Also... it's too new to care about battery life.

    Let me say that again...its too new to care about battery life. Call me in a week, and we will maybe talk battery life, but brand new phones cannot be judged. It's a matter of physics (new batteries take time to reach peak efficiency) and usage patterns... You are certainly using it far more than you will once you get used to this wonderful new toy.
