    Now we need to select the level.
    There are three options here: there is "20%", "10%" or "5%". We can choose whichever option we want. You can see right now, the "10%" is selected because it has a green circle inside the circle on the far right of the screen. That means that it is selected.

    Now its "20%".
    This shows you that you can choose whichever option you want to enable 'Extreme power saving mode'. Be warned that this power saving mode is very extreme. It really reduces how you can use your HTC One M8. It really limits you so maybe 20% is quite high but it obviously depends on what you are doing and where you are. Make sure that you have a look at the 'Extreme power saving mode'. See exactly what it does and then you can make your decision. You can actually find a video on how to setup the 'Extreme power saving mode' on this website so search for that.
