Custom battery saver mode?


Mar 14, 2022
Hello, as my model is old, my battery does not last very long. The phone supports the following battery power modes: Performance, Optimized, Medium power saving, and Maximum power saving.

If I am out and not able to charge the battery, I have to put it in Maximum power saving mode and that makes the battery last a long time as it shuts down most background processes, along with other settings.

My question is: is there a way to use the maximum power saving mode with biometrics turned on? I hate to keep typing my password every time I need to access the phone. Or is there an app that would mimic such behavior?
