    The only thing I can find that the Power Saving Mode does is shutting off sync and dimming your screen. Is that really all there is to it? This is not a matter of my decision to use it. I am simply trying to figure out its list of features, which is nowhere to be found. At least, I couldn't find it.

    Many thanks and I have Android 4.0.4., if it matters.

    The basic Android OS doesn't have a power saving mode--what you're referring to is Samsung's feature. Here's an article about how to use it:

    Not sure if the modes are different between carriers (the link I posted above was for AT&T). Here's an article from T-Mobile:

    And here's a video:

    Thank you for the replies. The problem is that this doesn't really answer the question. I know how to use it, I know the tips. What I'm wanting to know is what does IT do when in power saving mode (not to be confused with custom power saving mode)?

    I guess the answer is that there is no answer. That's too bad.

    From the above links:

    "CPU power saving
    Screen power saving
    Turn off haptic feedback"

    (CPU power saving probably caps the processor speed at a lower speed.)

    I don't quite understand what you mean when you ask what does IT do when in power saving mode. It's following the protocols of the power saving mode. The default power saving mode is likely what you first see if you select Custom Power Saving.

    I have noticed when I have it on my Note 2, there is a lot, and I mean a lot, of stutter when scrolling pages. I leave it off.
