Is it bad to turn the power save mode all the time? And what about turning it on while charging? And what is the best battery percentage to turn it on?
Any help would be appreciated.

When your battery's low. It usually turns itself on at 20%. Least on i737 is not going to hurt anything. Just cuts off cell data and such to save power

The power saving mode only reduces brightness of your display slightly ...and turns off some of the radios that are inbuilt...also it reduces the cpu usage...these all contribute to saving battery...or at least allowing it to last till the last possible moment..

Having it on all the time...even while charging is no problem at all...it has no affect...
but since it does reduce cpu power... there is a chance of lag in some games and stuff like that...i say it with personal experience... also if you are always checking benchmark scores...it will reduce....so you can use the power saving mode wisely....once again..no harm in using it all the time hope this helps

Im always on power saving mode cause, well.. I don't notice any difference at all whether it's on or not.. Except it kinda improves battery life. I only disable it whenever I'm playing heavy games

ther is a difference when turning on/off the power saving mode..it limits your CPU frequency to 1200mhz rather than getting 1600mhz on your CPU..try installing Cool Tool from playstore so you can check..
