Access hidden power saver features on HTC EVO 4G LTE

power saver settings - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereIf you miss the Power Saver features on the HTC EVO 3D, we may just have something even better for you. G&E reader Mark recently wrote in, alerting us of a great find: a hidden power saver menu on the HTC EVO 4G LTE, with even more ways to control what your phone will do when it’s running low on juice.

To access this menu, you’ll need to download an app that creates shortcuts on your device; we recommend QuickShortcutMaker. When creating your app shortcut, look for “Power saver settings” – in QuickShortcutMaker, this is located in the Activities tab, under the Settings app.

Then, just follow the on-screen instructions to add this shortcut to one of your homescreens, and going forward, you’ll always have access to everything that appears on the right – including various connectivity and screen settings on a very granular level.

Apparently, these settings kick in once your phone reaches a certain battery level, so choose wisely!

This is an awesome find, and you don’t even need root access, so thanks to Mark – and be sure to contact us or post in our forums if you have other helpful hints you think our readers would want to know about!
