    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.

    I'm not sure what exactly is the problem here. However, you might need to factory reset. You can do this through recovery (like you already tried to do) or through system settings > security.

    Let us know if that works.

    It was a system glitch, something happened that booted the Ultra Power Saving Mode off of it's protected status. Last night while trying to avoid the dreaded factory reset, I kept playing with all the available options within Settings and was able to knock it back to the protected status thus allowing me to turn UPSM off. This was done through Settings > Personalization > Easy Mode, this brought the UPSM main screen back and once again gave me the option to turn it off.

    hi,

    I am having the exact same problem - however the only settings screen I can access is the limited functionality one you see during ultra power saving mode. Did you have the same setting screen? if so, can you explain how you got to the setting screen to fix this issue?

    thanks!

    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.

    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

    My Galaxy S5 is likewise stuck in ultra power saving mode. None of the preceding suggestions have worked, although I have not tried any factory reset/buttons...and don't want to. Can anyone help??

    The problem is that i only get network, brightness, and volume settings so i have another question. How do i do software restart?

    How do you get to safe mode?

    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'm having the same problem. My phone is stuck in ultra power saving mode but my screen is not in ultra power saving mode. I can view all my apps but I can't go to them or listen to music etc. When I swipe down the bar where I have the option to turn ultra power mode off it won't show that bar so I can turn it off. I can't go to security settings either. Only settings that ultra power mode allows. Please help. Thanks!

    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.

    So, I think this issue could be caused by an update of sorts. To fix this, I went into my list of (very limited) apps and held down the Google app, and drug it to the top for the info. Once here, I uninstalled the updates. This brought me to the screen where I could disable the Ultra Power Save mode. Hope this helps someone.
