A special mode has been found in MIUI firmware version 9.8.10, when enabled, the smartphone's charge starts to be consumed very sparingly. This effective saving mode is called Supersaver, and its work begins when the gadget's battery is about to be discharged. Recall that the MIUI shell complements Android-based devices and is a development by Xiaomi, created by the company for its branded gadgets. It features open source and a redesigned user interface.
Chinese resource ITHome shared information about the Supersaver mode. According to researchers who conducted an experiment with a test build of software, this mode is automatically turned on if the battery level of the smartphone drops to 10%. It turned out that when Supersaver is activated, the smartphone holds a charge for more than a day.
Activating the mode added an additional 33 hours of activity to the experiment participant's smartphone until the next charge. This is the kind of data that testers shared, presenting the proof in the form of a screenshot. At the same time, the source of information did not name the name of the device itself, on which the new regime was tested.
When a new smartphone power saving mode becomes active, the operating system is rebuilt and takes certain actions to maximize the battery life of the device. For example, the "dark" theme of the display is activated, the synchronization option is turned off, the GPS module. All applications in the background are deactivated. In addition, the vibration function of the smartphone stops working.
To maximize the remaining battery life of the smartphone, the list of running applications in Supersaver mode becomes much smaller. Only the functions of dialing and receiving calls, sending SMS messages and the subscriber book remain available in the smartphone. In this mode, the Xiaomi smartphone is not much different from the simplest phone. However, there is an assumption that Supersaver in battery saving mode will allow the user to independently configure the list of available and necessary applications.
The exact timing of the appearance of the new mode in the Xiaomi firmware has not yet been announced for everyone. At the same time, Xiaomi periodically demonstrates the capabilities of branded smartphones to work for a long time on a single charge. In one of these tests, the company tested the Redmi 7 model with MIUI 10 shell on the Snapdragon 710 processor and 4000 mAh battery. During the experiment, which was broadcast on the Chinese resource Weibo, the smartphone battery lasted more than 435 hours in standby mode.
A concept similar to Supersaver mode is found in devices from other brands. So, the option of maximum energy saving is built into the firmware of branded mobile devices of the Korean company Samsung. Stamina Mode, which is present in Sony's Xperia devices, functions in a similar way.
