What is Safe Mode in Android in General?

Safe mode is a diagnostic state in your Android phone and it helps you in identifying the issues caused by 3rd party applications. Safe mode boots up your Android mobile with the default applications that were shipped with your device. In this state you can find if a third party app is causing your mobile to freeze or affecting the performance. This mode is very helpful in troubleshooting the 3rd party applications.
Your mobile data will not be lost in the safe mode. All the contacts, installed apps, custom settings, images, videos etc will stay in your mobile memory. Its very easy to enter and exit safe mode in ASUS mobiles. In safe mode your ASUS mobile boots up with default applications and all the other 3rd party applications will not be shown.
