Since our smart mobile is a combination of software and hardware, It is not always free from issues. When it is related to software issues, We can fix them ourselves. But when it is related to hardware, We have to contact nearby Service centers. Since our data is sensitive and we can’t always protect our data. Also, it always creates doubt among us, and when the data leaks, It is not a comfortable situation. Also, most users reset the whole data and restore it after the repair. So, To fix that kind of issue, Samsung released Maintenance Mode on Galaxy Mobiles. It allows us to protect our data and avoids the whole reset or restore process.
