    I found a solution that worked on my Note 5. Hopefully it will help someone else in the future that has their phone get stuck in UPSM.
    Click on the app drawer, drag the Google app up to the top of the screen where it says "app info", click on "More" at the top right, uninstall updates. Once I did this, it took me back to the UPSM screen and I could then turn it off. You will have to reset your Google Now Launcher, but that is better than doing a factory reset.
    I am still stuck in the UPSM with my S5.It doesn't give me the access to begin with. I'm desperately looking for solution that would save me from factory reset. All I can see is the limited setting and whenever I attempt signing off of the UPSM, it just gets stuck forever.
    Please help !

    Just open the app drawer, drag the google app to app info, disable it, then choose your service providers default launcher when prompted

    Have very similar problem on my Galaxy Note 4, except, when I boot into Safe mode, it also shows up in UPSM, which means I have a very limited settings screen (only display and sound options enabled). Does anyone know how to at least enable all settings, so I can shut off the dreaded UPSM? Thanks in advance
    Did you get a reply to this? I have the same problem right now. What did you do to solve the issue?

    Hi All,

    I turned the Ultra Power Saving Mode and after sending a few text messages locking and unlocking the phone it froze for a moment so I restarted the phone. Now It shows me the normal home screen and I can access my apps page but everything is turned off and I cannot turn Ultra Saving Mode off. I tried manually turning it off, restarting it, taking the battery off and putting it back on. Anyone seen this that can help me figure this out?

    P.S. I also performed the soft reset using the Volume Up/Power/Home method and when I click to clear the partition it gives me an error.

    Answer
    Safe mode doesnt work ul have to chose your default launcher that is touch wiz to disable it . Try sending a launcher from bluetooth and install and open it then when you press home button u will get the option to select a launcher ( only after you open apus launcher after installing) select touch wiz and your good to go. My problem was fixed this way.

    My stupid note4 is stuck on ultra saving mode as the shortcuts icon on top disappeared.

    And the limited setting don't include any option to turn it off. Grrrr
    Limited settings: wifi, Bluetooth, sound, display, location.

    One of the suggested solutions online was to install any launcher from the Internet, to promote the select launcher to appear in safe mode.

    Did that. But it seems I hit another dead end as non of the launchers that appear seem to launch the device back without the ultra mode tuned on, nor any additional settings appear.

    The useless three launchers are: ThouchWiz Easy Home, ThouchWiz home and Nova launcher.

    I'm clueless, and the timing couldn't get any better.
    Please help

    Excuse my basic knowledge, In normal mode I found Google app and dragged it to info.
    However, the only options I could find are force stop, manage storage and clear cache.

    Force stop doesn't seem to have any affect.

    Please help

    Another way to get around this is to side load any other launcher and to choose samsung launcher when you open the new launcher.
    I have note4

    I see three launchers: Thouchwiz home, thouchwiz easy and nova launcher

    When I select any. I get the same result.

    The phone display won't launch.(stuck with a black screen)

    After restarting, the launcher previously selected will automatically appear but still in the annoying ulta save mode.

    Please help

    OKAY I FOUND IT FINALLY !!!!
    I sent this launcher via bluetooth and installed it, then restarted the mobile in safe mode. After this launcher has started, I went to the "All Apps" Menu (bottom right hand corner) and from there, I found up the three dots where it drops down another menu. I chose "Manage Apps". At which point you will be directed to the applications manager. From there, Force Stop "Emergency manager Service " and DISABLE the "Emergency provider". Then restart, things will get much better
    All the best! Tell me if it works!

    Hi Devin,

    I was hoping you might be able to help me. My phone is stuck in UPSM and has been for about 6 months. I am hoping you can help me do what Hossam is explaining because I am not sure how to send the "launcher" to my phone via bluetooth.

    Thank you!

    Had the same issue. Tried all the methods that were available on the internet, nothing worked. I only had Phone, Messages and Internet available on my UPSM screen when I had this issue. Like suggested by other users, I downloaded Nova Launcher apk throught "Internet" browser and installed it, then tried everything else....Not resolved. But I realised that having the option to install apk like Nova definitely opened up few more options......However the following method helped me resolve this nasty issue:

    1. With UPSM screen, I did hard reset (Power + Volume Down),

    2. Then download Google Now Launcher via the only browser app I had available (I was damn lucky I guess): The "Internet" app ( download it from https://www.apk4fun.com/apk/16746/)

    3. Install Google Now Launcher the same way you install Nova Launcher. Then on my UPSM screen, I tried to disable UPSM mode. Then while its showing "Disabling UPSM....bla bla" I carried out a hard reset again.

    4. When the phone started back up, I had the option to pick between, Nova Launcher, and Google Now launcher. If you dont have the option, keep repeating steps 1 to 3 (dont give up.....I would have done this more than 50 times in different order to figure this out!). I chose Google Now Launcher and performed a hard reset again.

    5. When the start up was complete, Google Now launcher loaded with all of its standard icons (Apps, Google Search,...etc.) but when I checked the Settings, the options were still very limited. But then I went into "Apps" and tapped on "three dots" (or dot dot dot on top right corner) and chose "App Manager (or maybe its called Manage Apps)". If you dont have Google now launcher loaded, please steps 1 to 4 again.

    6. This I found to be the most important step (some users have already mentioned it). Find the two culprits from your Manage Apps list called - EmergencyManagerService and EmergencyProvider. Force Stop both these apps and Disable EmergencyProvider.

    7. Carried out two hard resets one after the other.

    8. And I had Google Now Launcher loaded fully but still in black and white. Then on my home screen when I help the power button, I noticed the normal options (Restart, Shutdown...eta..) another option - Emergency mode "On". So I tapped on that and a message appeared "Device is being configured..please wait".

    9. Carried out another hard reset.

    10. At start up Google Now Launcher loaded with colour and all back to normal. Then I went into the settings in Google Now Launcher and changed default launch settings back to Touchwiz which I had originally before I had this issue. Everything was back to normal. If this last step did not work, try steps 8 and 9 again.

    After spending over 5 hours, this was the only method that worked for me. After all this the most important thing to understand is that the two system apps (EmergencyManagerService and EmergencyProvider) were blocking anything else from loading therefore restricting features of other apps that are already installed. This is why you install a different Launcher (like Google Now) to gain access to manipulate the status of these two system apps. Once they are killed off and carry out few hard-resets, you can definitely avoid a factory reset.

    Hope this helps and save a good soul a lot of heartache...... : )

    Go to Safe Mode and and switch off Ultra Safe Mode. if you are prompted with choosing default launcher, then choose "Launcher" (Do not not choose Touchwitz), you will have option to disable.
    What if I accidentally chose touchwitz. How do I get the option to change it? I have an Galaxy a5

    After trying all the methods I went to apps then to the Power management app
    Open App Data or App storage
    Cleared app data
    cleared app cache

    I tried all the above options but non worked.
    I tried this and it worked for me. I turned UPSM on and off and everything is fine. I restarted my phone to be sure everything is fine and there is no problem.
