What is Do Not Disturb Mode and how to enable it on Samsung Galaxy S20 5G?

Imagining the world without smartphones is pretty hard, almost impossible. But the truth is, we all need a little break from time to time. No sounds, notifications, calls, anything. If that sounds good to you, all you have to do is enable Do not disturb mode on your Samsung Galaxy S20 5G/S20 Ultra 5G/S20+ 5G. The feature is doing what its name suggests – it puts your phone in a state where nothing will disturb you. Turning it off is quite simple, and all you have to do is open the Quick Settings and tap on the Do not disturb option. But there is more, and that’s setting the schedule for it.
