The S Power Planning feature has been made part of a handset for the first time. It seems that through this the company is trying to benefit young customers.
There are three features in S power planning. Reserve battery for phone calls, this feature reserves some part of the battery for calls and messages. Three power saving levels are given in Extend Battery Time. With the help of forward call, the user will be able to forward all the calls to a specified number of days in case the battery runs out. Extend battery time will give the user twice the battery life than normal time. Samsung representative says that to do this many background activities in the phone will be shut down. S power planning can prove useful in common use. Because we often forget to charge the phone due to being busy.
Another new feature is S Secure which deals with security and privacy. It comes with the option to lock and hide the app. We have also seen the Secure Folder feature in the Galaxy Note 7.
Samsung has also given S bike mode in both smartphones. The S Bike Mode was first launched with the Galaxy J3 (6). For the convenience of the user, Samsung has put S Power Planning, S Secure and S Bike Mode toggles in the Quick Settings panel.
