You can start your phone into Safe Mode if you want to test whether added applications are causing problems in your phone. Safe mode only charge the basic system.

1.        Turn your phone

2.        Hold down the button  ON for one or two seconds to turn it on.

3.        When the Samsung logo appears, hold the button  Volume down  until the lock screen is displayed.

When the lock screen is displayed, it will show Safe Mode in the lower left corner of the screen.To exit safe mode, restart your phone.


Excellent!! cheers

What is safe mode?

Safe mode prevents conflicting applications running on the auto startup, allowing discard equipment failure.

If your phone is working properly in safe mode, uninstall third-party applications or application updates that can generate problems using the Application Manager. To access this function from the main screen press Menu> Settings> More> Application Manager. If necessary, press the tab Downloads. Touch the application in the list. Press . Uninstall> OK Applications preinstalled on your phone can not be uninstalled; you can uninstall any updates that have been applied by pressing Uninstall Updates> OK.

How to download Galaxy S4 in safe mode?

Restart or just turn on the phone.
Wait until your phone's screen an animated logo of Samsung.
Once the animated logo will appear Samsung - press several times on selection key options (this is the left softkey telephone).
Thus, the phone switches to the safe mode and it displayed evidence of this inscription - Safe Mode.
To exit safe mode, ie, enable normal phone, just restart your phone:
Turn off your phone -> Remove and replace the battery -> Turn on the phone.
Great explanation. Great Thanks
