Assembling
Unpack
Check your product box for the following items:
●● Mobile device
●● USB power adapter (outlet connector and charging head)
●● PC data cable
●● Quick start guide
Use only Samsung-approved software. Pirated or illegal

The items supplied with your device may vary
depending on the software and accessories available
in your region or offered by your service provider.
●● You can obtain additional accessories from your local
Samsung dealer.
●● The supplied accessories perform best for your device.
●● Accessories other than the supplied ones may not be
compatible with your device.
●●
Assembling

Charge the battery
Your device has a built-in battery. Before using the device for
the first time, you must charge the battery.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers. Unauthorised
chargers can cause batteries to explode or damage your
device.
Charge the battery only with a charger. You cannot
charge the battery with the PC data cable.
●● When your battery is low, the device will emit a
warning tone and display a low battery message. The
battery icon will also be empty. If the battery level
becomes too low, the device will automatically power
off. Recharge your battery to continue using your
device.
●●
1 Connect the PC data cable to the USB power adapter
and then plug the end of the PC data cable into the
multifunction jack.
The shape of the USB power adapter may differ
depending on your region.
Connecting the PC data cable improperly may cause
serious damage to the device or USB power adpater.
Any damage caused by misuse is not covered by the
warranty.
Assembling

2 Plug the USB power adapter into a power outlet.
You can use the device while it is charging, but it may
take longer to fully charge the battery.
●● While the device is charging, the touch screen may
not function due to an unstable power supply. If this
happens, unplug the USB power adapter from the
power outlet or unplug the PC data cable from the
device.
●● While charging, the device may heat up. This is
normal and should not affect your device’s lifespan or
performance.
●● If your device is not charging properly, bring your
device and the charger to a Samsung Service Centre.
●●
3 When the battery is fully charged (the battery icon is no
longer moving), unplug the USB power adapter and PC
data cable from the device and then from the power
outlet.
To save energy, unplug the USB power adapter when
not in use. The USB power adapter does not have a
power switch, so you must unplug the USB power
adapter from the outlet to interrupt the power supply.
The USB power adapter should remain close to the
socket when in use.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification
information
Your device conforms to European Union (EU) standards that limit
human exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted by radio and
telecommunications equipment. These standards prevent the sale of mobile
devices that exceed a maximum exposure level (known as the Specific
Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 2.0 W/kg.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model was 0.164 W/kg. In
normal use, the actual SAR is likely to be much lower, as the device has been
designed to emit only the RF energy necessary to transmit a signal to the
nearest base station. By automatically emitting lower levels when possible,
your device reduces your overall exposure to RF energy.
The Declaration of Conformity statement at the back of this manual
demonstrates your device’s compliance with the European Radio & Terminal
Telecommunications Equipment (R&TTE) directive.
When carrying the product or using it while worn on the body maintain
a distance of 5 mm from the body to ensure compliance with RF
exposure requirements.
Correct disposal of this product
(Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment)
(Applicable in the European Union and other European countries
with separate collection systems)
This marking on the product, accessories or literature indicates that
the product and its electronic accessories (e.g. charger, headset,
USB cable) should not be disposed of with other household waste
at the end of their working life.
To prevent possible harm to the environment or human health from
uncontrolled waste disposal, please separate these items from other types
of waste and recycle them responsibly to promote the sustainable reuse of
material resources.
Household users should contact either the retailer where they purchased this
product, or their local government office, for details of where and how they can
take these items for environmentally safe recycling.
Business users should contact their supplier and check the terms and
conditions of the purchase contract. This product and its electronic accessories
