Default use s5 only as a camera?

So I have a bazaar question. I'm going out in the desert for week and want to use my s5 as a camera only. Is there a way to disable EVERYTHING so just the camera works to conserve battery? I know I can do airplane mode and such, but I'm sure there's still things going on in the background that will drain the battery.

Thanks in advance!

Last time I been to a bazaar I bought some smoked ham and sausages.
I think you meant "bizarre"

On another note I like that you are going to a desert. It would have been awfully strange if you were to take pictures of dessert using only your S5 for a week.

Thank you, that was so very helpful in letting me know that my text to speech software sucks and that I should freeze it.

As to the other post. Yeah I went in and did that. I just didn't know if there was a batch way to disable all the safe things to disable then unfreeze them again when I'm back in civilization and will need them again.

Sounds like a pain in the butt to disable then re-enable everything, there's an option in developer options that don't keep any background activities active, might help.

Just buy the camera for the desert and there will be no unnecessary processes
