This is an extremely simple guide for those who are not familiar with the opportunity of going into safe mode. Safe mode disables all your third party apps and prevents them from doing anything on your device. You can install and remove new apps, but you can't open any. This is also helpful to determine whether your battery genuinely is bad, or if it is an app or two who are the culprits.

To enter safe mode:

Press and hold the power button until the 'Phone options' menu pop up.
This gives you three main options - power off, restart or turn airplane mode on.

To enter safe mode you have to press and hold 'power off' for about 3 seconds. It will then ask you whether you want to boot into safe mode or not. (Tested on D802).
On some device models, you have to tap and hold 'reboot device' in order to get that option.

It works flawlessly and in order to turn it off, you just reboot your device. During safe mode, the phone can be used as usual, with the exception of 3rd party apps.

Hope this helps!

Or, from the phone turned off, press power until the LG logo appears, release power and press the volume up button + volume down until the phone boot. You'll boot in safe mode
