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!

Slices

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.

Packing My Bag with a Stranger's Dress

"Do you want this suitcase?" My dad asked, pointing at a suitcase displayed at the store. I nodded in acceptance! A brown Safari suitcase, huge enough to carry dresses for a month, easy to pull, drag, and roll. It comes with 5 years of warranty! Though the fear of moving to a new location kept me haunting, the fun of shopping didn't let my energy level drop!

Suddenly my dad spoke loud, "Did we come here to buy a suitcase? This is not in our today's list. We can't carry it home in our Two-Wheeler". "The suitcase seems to be perfect for my needs", I told my dad. Finally, we asked the shopkeeper to reserve it for the next day and thankfully he agreed! The next day, I went along with my friend to buy the same brown Safari suitcase!

It was my wedding time, everyone at home was busy with preparations. Dad was busy with distributing the wedding invites, mom was busy with her planning and sister was getting her clothing and accessories but my work wa…
