Power Up in Safe Mode - Samsung Galaxy Note® 3

Safe Mode puts your phone in a diagnostic state (returned to default settings) so you can determine if a third-party app is causing your device to freeze, reset or run slow.

An alternate method is available if the device is already powered on.

  1. With the device powered off, press and hold the Power button (located on the right edge) until the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 logo appears then release.
  2. With the logo on the screen, press and hold the Volume down button until Safe mode appears in the lower left of the screen then release.
    Note Phone goes through entire boot up process before showing Safe mode. This may take up to 45 seconds.
  3. With Safe Mode enabled, test device and app functionality.
