Adaptive Battery

I've never had issues with the battery backup of Samsung s9+. The battery is good for more than 24 hours with minimal usage (Mobile Data ON). It lasts for 8-12 hours with an average usage of media and phone call.

With the Adaptive battery feature, you can just manage your phone with a single charge. It understands the apps and battery usage. It ensures your apps don't OVER use the battery!


Just as the name, it allows you to view the favorite part of your favorite apps.

Interactive navigation

You can just switch between screens and apps by using gestures instead of buttons.

Mobile Dashboard

How often do you use your smartphone? What do you do? Are you on Facebook, Do you watch a movie or read a book? You can now get notifications on how much time you spend on each application on your phone with the dashboard feature.

Set Timer for your Apps

Do you want to control your mobile usage or specifically 'App usage'? You can set daily time limits for mobile apps. The app icon grays out when you exceed the limit.
