Point of View Mobii 5045 - Android 4.2 Mobile Phone
Warning: Damages could happen to your device or SIM card if the device is not switched off
when taking out the SIM card.
1.3 Storage card
A microSD card can be used to expand the phone’s storage. Use it to store your photos,
videos, music and applications. MicroSD cards up to 64 GB are supported. To insert a
microSD card, remove the back cover of the phone and insert the microSD card according to
the symbol next to the card slot. That is with the gold contacts facing down and the cut-off
corner towards the camera.
To remove the microSD card, simply slide the card out from its slot.
When you need to remove the storage card while the phone is on, unmount the storage card
first to prevent corrupting or damaging the files on the storage card. To unmount the microSD
card, on the HOME screen, press the OPTIONS
icon and tap ‘System settings’. Select
‘Storage’ and scroll down to ‘SD CARD’. Tab ‘Unmount SD card’ and ‘OK’ on the next popup.
Now remove the microSD card as described above.
1.4 Battery
This product comes with a partially charged, rechargeable battery. Please make sure to fully
charge the battery or have the charger inserted before first use to avoid possible damage.
Please use only original batteries and accessories that came with your phone or
replacements that we recommend. How long the battery can last before it needs recharging
depends on how you use your phone. Among these are the phone features and accessories
you use (for example, leaving your Bluetooth connection always on uses more power). Long
phone calls and frequent web browsing use up much battery. Also, consider your location:
poor signal strength from your mobile network and extreme temperature make the battery
work harder.
1.5 Charging phone
Connect the supplied USB cable between your phone and the charger and plug the charger
into an electrical outlet. As the battery is being charged, the notification LED shows a solid
red light. The light turns to solid green when the phone is fully charged.
When you charge the battery while the phone is on, the charging battery icon is displayed
in your phone’s status bar. After the battery has been fully charged, the charging battery icon
turns to a full battery icon
During charging, the battery, device and the charger can get hot. This is normal. Unplug the
charger from the AC electrical outlet and disconnect the wiring between the phone and the
charger after charging.
Attention: Charge the phone in a well-ventilated place in which the temperature is from 10℃ to +55℃. Use the charger provided by the manufacturer only. The use of an
4
Point of View Mobii 5045- Android 4.2 Mobile Phone
English
unconfirmed charger may lead to dangers and violation of the manufacturer's warranty. If the
temperature becomes too high or too low during charging, the device will automatically give a
warning and stop charging to avoid possible damage to the device or any other danger.
1.6 Switching your phone on or off
To start your device, press and hold the ‘Power button’ until the screen lights up. When you
start up the phone for the first time, you’ll be asked to set it up. Follow the instructions on
screen.
To shut down your device, press and hold the ‘Power button’ until the Power options menu
appears and tap ‘Power off’.
1.7 Entering your PIN
To avoid illegal use, the SIM card is encrypted with a PIN code (Personal Identification
Number) as protection. When this function is ON and you have already set a PIN code, you
need to type in the PIN code every time the phone is switched on in order to unlock the SIM
card and use the phone.
You can turn off the SIM PIN code in the settings menu. Yet in this situation, the SIM card
cannot prevent illegal use.
If you type in the wrong PIN code three times in a row, the SIM card will be locked. You now
need a PUK (PIN Unblocking Key) to unlock the SIM card again.

The basic phone functions like calling. SMS and a phonebook are available directly from your
home screen and alternatively also from the ‘App drawer’. The applicable icons are:
Phone dialer:
Phonebook:
SMS:
These basic phone functions will use the SIM card you selected in “Settings / Device / Dual
SIM settings” to make a call, send texts etc. To change to the other SIM card you must
change the applicable settings in ‘Dual SIM settings’ menu.
4.2 Installing Apps

choose from a wide variety of free and paid apps ranging from productivity apps to
entertainment and games. You can find the Google Play Store™ in the App drawer by

English
4.3 Administer / remove apps
The
‘Apps’ item in the ‘Settings’ menu will display an overview of
installed apps. There are four tabs available (Scroll to the right to make
the other tabs visible) which filter the displayed apps list. Select an app
to view its detailed information. In the detailed information you have the
options ‘Force Stop’, ‘Uninstall’, ‘Clear data’ and ‘Move to SD card’.
Moving apps to your SD card can save you some internal storage
memory on the phone.
The ‘Clear cache’ and ‘Clear defaults’ can be used when you are
experiencing issues with a specific app. Clearing cached information
and (possibly wrong) default settings may solve the problem. Clearing
this information will also wipe any stored login information. I.e. clearing
the cache of your social media app will also force you to re-login
afterwards. Apps may also be removed in the apps content page of the
Google Play Store™.
Apps can be installed on both the internal memory or on a SD card.
Installing apps on the internal memory can, at some point, cause the
phone to run out of memory and become slow. This can be prevented
by installing apps on a SD card, keeping enough free room for the operating system itself. To
set this option up, go to ‘Storage’ in the ‘Settings’ menu, press ‘Preferred install location’ and
choose your preferred option.
4.4 Add an account
The best way to fully make use of your Android phone is by linking your Google / Gmail
account or other e-mail account to your device. Open the ‘Settings’ menu and choose the ‘+
Add account’ item. To add a Google / Gmail account, please select ‘Google’ in the pop-up
and follow the instructions on the screen. After entering your Google username and
password you have the option to automatically back-up your apps, settings (i.e. bookmarks
and Wi-Fi passwords) and other data.
You can also add a POP3, IMAP or Exchange
email account by selecting ‘Email’. The pop-up
option ‘Corporate’ will setup a ‘Microsoft
Exchange’ link.
Your system/network administrator or mobile
subscription supplier can supply you with the
server information and login credentials. Follow
the steps displayed on-screen to complete the
account linking process.
After you successfully linked your account(s) with
the tablet you will see them in the ‘Settings’ menu
under ‘ACCOUNTS’. Select one of the accounts
to setup synchronization settings for each
account separate.

5.0 Frequently Asked Questions
1) Is there a software update available for my phone?
All firmwares are posted on http://downloads.pointofview-online.com
2) I downloaded [app name] and it doesn’t work (properly)?
Some applications are specifically developed for tablets or big screen phones and
might not have support for Android devices with smaller screens. Try to update the
software or find a compatible alternative app. This incompatibility can also occur with
software written for previous Android versions.
3) How can I manually install an APK file?
By default, it is not possible to manually install APK files. To enable this you have to
enable the ‘Unknown sources’ setting. This can be found in the ‘Settings’ menu ->
‘Security’.
4) My battery is only lasting xx hours!
The operating time of the phone on one battery load depends very much on the
specific tasks that it has to perform. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and other wireless
communication technologies are known to consume a lot of power. Also CPU
intensive applications such as games and HD video clips can use up the power of the
battery fast.
To maximize the duration of your battery, you can optimize the following settings:
- Choose a low or dynamic screen brightness
- A short press on the power button will directly place the phone in standby mode
- Download an ‘App killer’ to clear the memory from previous started apps
- Disable Wireless devices when not using them
- Remove USB devices (these use power as well)
- Avoid use/charging in extremely hot or cold environments
5) Can the phone charge through USB?
Yes, however it will charge quite slow due to the limited power the USB port
(500mAh) can supply. The charger can supply more power and will charge much
faster.
