My Samsung Galaxy S6 with Android 6.0.1 always dims the screen when hitting 5% remaining battery. This is very bad in bright sunlight because the screen gets so dark that it's impossible to use the phone and pure guesswork to brighten it again. This “feature“ seems to override both auto and manual brightness setting. It also happens irrespective of power saving mode on/off. How can I stop it from doing this?

  • Try Macrodroid automation app. Trigger: battery <6℅ Action: brightness - adjust to desired level Constraints: power disconnected. This should solve your problem. Not posting as an answer as I don't have a device on Lollipop. Once you confirm it works, will post as solution – beeshyams Sep 21 '16 at 13:15

I believe you are looking for Power Saver Mode. This is under the Settings > Battery. There is usually an option to turn on Power Saver Mode altogether or adjust what it does.

  • Thanks, but this is done by my phone no matter if power saving is on or off. So disabling power saving mode does not stop the automatism that the screen gets dimmed to minimum when hitting 5% battery. – Felix Dombek Sep 21 '16 at 13:20

Samsung Galaxy Phones do dim their phones once it reaches the low level of battery. You may try this: http://www.samsung.com/ie/support/skp/faq/1056771

  • This setting does not exist on the S6, unfortunately. – Felix Dombek Sep 21 '16 at 14:45
