Samsung Galaxy S5: Top 16 tips and tricks
Get the most out of your Galaxy S5
Battery Saving Mode is a lifesaver for anyone who often finds themselves away from a power outlet for long periods, with the Samsung Galaxy S5 sporting greatly enhanced features that save your phone's juice better than ever before. This mode can be accessed from the Quick Settings menu.
These include a Greyscale mode that switches off the phone display's colours and the option to turn off mobile data when the screen is off. With this feature enabled, the phone will last in standby mode for days.
You can also turn off various battery-hogging features, such as Air View, Smart Stay and Motion gestures from the settings menu to get even more life out of your device.
Improve colour accuracy
Like its predecessors, the S5 has a number of different settings allowing you to manually change the phone's colour replication. There are five modes: Adapt Display, Dynamic, Standard, Professional Photo and Cinema.
Cinema Mode has been identified as the setting that provides the best colour replication. Colours may appear bland on the home screen but this mode is great for viewing TV shows, movies and sports as well as online shopping as the colours are more realistic.
