Enabling this option, means you are converting your smartphone to good old Nokia mobile phone. The screen will turn grey, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will be turned off. Your data connection will be disconnected when the screen goes off. Your apps will be locked away somewhere safe etc. So, use this mode only when you can’t charge your phone for a couple of days.

The reason behind Samsung Note 5’s vibrant and bright screen is the Super AMOLED technology. The screen does seem brighter, but then it consumes more energy in order to produce lighter colors whereas the color black pixels won’t use much energy as they are turned off. So, keep a blackish background will have a little difference.
Turn unnecessary connectivity
The antennas of Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, GPS location services are always working in the background, resulting in waste of energy. So, we highly recommend that you turn of these connectivity’s when you are not using them especially when they can be turned on with just a single tab.
