Different Modes

Switch to mobile data

If you turn on Switch to mobile data,  your Galaxy will automatically use Mobile or Cellular data whenever wifi is out of range, or if wifi signal is weak. If your Wi-Fi signal becomes weak or unreliable, your phone will switch to mobile data automatically.


Turn on wifi automatically

Turn on wifi automatically is useful if you frequently go to the same places to connect. When this feature is enabled, your phone should automatically connect you to the previously connected wifi network without you knowing it. Wi-Fi will turn on automatically when you’re within range of Wi-Fi networks you use frequently.

Detect suspicious networks

Detect suspicious network is a security layer by Samsung to keep you away from networks with recognized patterns of suspicious activities.

Wifi power-saving mode

Wifi power-saving mode can be a handy feature for your device in the long run. The more that you use your Galaxy, the more that Intelligent Wifi knows your usage pattern thereby making more efficient use of battery power. The algorithm for this feature is not publicly supplied by Samsung but it’s claimed to be effective if you leave it enabled for a long time.
