I bought this phone for my grandparents. The salesman at the store told me that this phone would be great for old people who are new to smart phones. Any idea where to find this "Easy Mode" or "Simple Mode" option? There's no such option under Settings.

Model: SM-G361F

Android version: 5.1.1

  • Can you provide the screenshot of the setting? The feature should be there under "Personal" section (Verizon manual) – Andrew T. Dec 25 '15 at 8:41
  • How do I do that? I tried this: samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00032055/253232. I got two of the phones. The settings under Personal are: "Accounts", "Backup and reset", "Accessibility". I've scanned through all the menues, there's no such option. – erihanse Dec 25 '15 at 11:30
  • You may have already tried this but in the settings are you able to search for stuff? if so just search easy mode and if it doesn't come up then it's probably not an option – Mario Nov 19 '16 at 3:45

Samsung provides Easy Mode in options (differ from device to device) :

  1. Open Settings → Personalisation (by scrolling down) → Easy Mode.


  2. Open Settings → Display → Easy Mode.

  • Please do not use excessive emphasizing. Your answer barely has text and you used so much bolds and italics into it. This is not a forum, so avoid the forum like emphasis on answers from now on. – Firelord Dec 6 '18 at 19:36

Go to settings > Application Manager > Default Applications > Home Screen > and then change to Easy Mode.

I found this on my GS6, but I think it should work for your phone too.

The Ultra Energy Saving mode is the Easy mode on this phone.

  • How can that be, the salesman showed me this very function on the same model. – erihanse Dec 29 '15 at 13:39
  • Maybe he showed a Galaxy Core Prime but not a sm-g361f – Juan Fco Calatayud Dec 29 '15 at 15:22
  • So the model I got doesn't have Easy Mode? – erihanse Dec 29 '15 at 15:24
  • I also bought this model for my parents (75 and 83 years old with his first smartphone) My mother is using it with normal mode and is going well. My father is waiting to see how my mom is adapted. – Juan Fco Calatayud Dec 29 '15 at 16:39
  • I only changed some icon at the initial screen and the size of letters. – Juan Fco Calatayud Dec 29 '15 at 16:41
