samsung galaxy s5 colour range

Smartphones’ disappointing battery life has long been the industry’s shameful little secret, with mobile internet services and multi-tasking sure to rinse your expensive handset’s cell quicker than you can say ‘trades description act’.

Samsung has attempt to address that by including a Power Saving Mode on the Galaxy S5, which turns the screen into a black and white mode and shuts off all background apps to help you eke out the last drops of your juice.

On paper, it’s a life-saver. Especially if you absolutely, positively have to take an important call and have been caught short with your battery.

We took a closer look at the feature for the hands-on video below. Let us know what you think of it in the comments section.
