    Did Sprint change the power saving modes on the Note 7? I can't seem to find where I can make adjustments to the screen resolution, brightness, etc that are shown on Samsungs website. My battery page looks nothing like the one they show on Samsungs website.

    I must be blind because I do not see the word "Customize" anywhere on any of the my screenshots, I do see it on the ones I pulled from Samsungs site that I shared.

    I was looking at the Samsung ones, my bad. Have you tried actually turning in power saving mode then seeing if it lets you adjust/customize the settings?

    I have tried and when I click it it just turns it on and gives me no options. It just says "on" in the top right corner instead of "off".

    Sorry to hear that. I have T mobile and have the slider bar.

    I knew Verizon has nerfed some settings, looks like they are not alone.

    I like the ability to lower resolution alone, that saves battery by huge amounts and the device is still awesome. And its very easy to bump it back up.

    I changed back to the touchwiz launcher and it didn't make any difference.

    Ugh...I finally wanted to customize this stuff and get it all setup and I have been hamstrung somehow.

    I just tried disabling all bloat on Package Disabler Pro and I am now seeing what you're seeing. If you're not running Package Disabler, you probably disabled something you shouldn't have.

    BINGO!!! I did use package disabler and it disables "Device Maintenance" which once i re enabled it my screens match Samsungs.

    Nope, the Verizon model has the proper power customize settings, as per the Samsung pics.
