Safety & Precaution
Precaution
Keep your phone away from small children
Keep your phone and all accessories out of the reach of small
children. Small parts may cause choking or serious injury if
swallowed.
Radio Waves
Your phone transmits/receives radio waves in the GSM frequency
(900/1800/1900MHz).
Check with the vehicle manufacturer that electronic equipment
used in your vehicle will not be affected by radio energy.
Switch off your phone...
Turn off the phone when in an aircraft. The use of mobile phones in
an aircraft may be dangerous for the operation of the aircraft,
disrupt the mobile phones network and may be illegal.
In hospitals, clinics, other health care centers and anywhere else
where you may be in the close vicinity of medical equipment.
In areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere (e.g. petrol stations
and also areas where the air contains dust particles, such as metal
powders).In a vehicle transporting flammable products or a vehicle
powered by liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).In quarries or other areas
where blasting operations are in progress.
Your mobile phone and your car
Avoid using your phone while driving and obey all regulations that
restrict the use of mobile phones while driving. Use hands free
accessories to increase your safety when possible. Ensure that your

switch it off, remove the battery and let them dry for 24hrs before
using them again.
• To clean the phone, wipe it with a soft cloth.
• In hot weather or after prolonged exposure to the sun (e.g., behind a
window or a windscreen), the temperature of your phone's casing
might increase. Be very careful in this case when picking up your
phone and also avoid using it with an ambient temperature over 40°
C.
Protect batteries from damage
You should only use Philips Authentic Accessories, as the use of
any other accessories may damage your phone and may be
dangerous, and will make all guarantees for your Philips phone null and
void. The use of an unspecified type of battery may also cause an
explosion.
Make sure damaged parts are replaced immediately by a qualified
technician and that they are replaced with genuine Philips replacement
parts.
• Your phone is powered by a rechargeable battery.
• Use specified charger only.
• Do not incinerate.
• Do not deform or open the battery.
• Do not allow metal objects (such as keys in your pocket) to short
circuit the battery contacts.
• Avoid exposure to excessive heat (>60° C or 140° F), moisture or
caustic environments.

key presses
The display responds more slowly at very low temperatures. This is
normal and does not affect the operation of the phone. Take the phone
to a warmer place and try again. In other cases please contact your
phone supplier.
Your battery seems to over heat
You might be using a charger that was not intended for use with your
phone. Make sure you always use the Philips authentic accessory shipped
with your phone.
Your phone doesn’t display the phone numbers of incoming
calls
This feature is network and subscription dependent. If the network
doesn’t send the caller’s number, the phone will display Call 1 or
Withheld instead. Contact your operator for detailed information on
this subject.
You can’t send text messages
Some networks don’t allow message exchanges with other networks.
First check that you have entered the number of your SMS centre, or
contact your operator for detailed information on this subject.
You can’t receive and/or store JPEG pictures

displayed on the screen.
The picture captured with the phone camera is not clear
Make sure that the camera lens on both sides is clean.
The display shows SIM failure
Check that the SIM card has been inserted correctly. If the problem
persists, your SIM card may be damaged. Contact your operator.
When attempting to use a feature in the menu, the display
shows NOT ALLOWED

the mobile phone while operating are generally below the maximum SAR
value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power
levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In
general, the closer you are to a base station antenna, the lower the
power output.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various
phones and at various positions, they all meet the international
protection standards for exposure to radio waves.
The highest SAR value for this Xenium X516 model phone
when tested for compliance against the standard was 0.452 W/
kg for ICNIRP recommendation.
For limiting the radio waves exposure, it is recommended to reduce the
mobile phone call duration or to use a headset. The purpose of those
precautions is to take the mobile phone away from the head and the

INTERNATIONAL
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES
Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and
manufactured not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio frequency
(RF) energy defined by the international standards. These
recommendations have been established by the International
Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and, the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) that forecast a
substantial safety margin for assuring the protection of all persons,
regardless of age and health.
The exposure recommendations for mobile phones use a measurement
unit known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit
recommended by the ICNIRP for the mobile phones used by the general
public is 2.0W/kg averaged over ten grams of tissue and, is 1,6W/kg
averaged over one gram of tissue by IEEE Std 1528 for the head.
Tests for SAR have been conducted using recommended operating
positions with the mobile phone transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is
determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR levels of

Optimizing your Philips Xenium
battery performance
Here are some steps to help you optimize your Philips
Xenium’s battery performance.
How to optimize the standby and talk time
of your phone?
for the shortest duration. In general, the lower
the backlight level and the shorter the duration,
the more power you will save.
• Avoid using or placing your phone near
magnetic objects (eg. a radio or television) or on
metal surfaces, which will impact the network
connection and ultimately drain power from
your battery.
• Always ensure that your phone profile is

appropriately set to meet your actual usage.
Profile setting significantly impacts the phone’s
battery performance. In general, Outdoor Mode
is the most power-draining setting while Silent
Mode consumes the least amount of power.
• If you’re using a Xenium phone with a dual SIM
feature, try to activate the 2 SIM cards only
when absolutely necessary. If you are in a
country with single coverage, deactivate the
non-covered SIM to prolong battery usage.
• If you’re not using applications like Bluetooth,
WIFI, GPS and JAVA, turn them off. And be sure
to lock your phone to prevent accidental
pressing of the keys with the auto-lock feature.
• Adjust the intensity and duration of your display
screen’s backlight to low or medium level and
• Full charging and full running down of your
battery will extend its life. Charge the battery
once the low-battery warning comes on.
• Temperature will impact battery usage. Over
time, heat will degrade your battery’s
performance. Keep your phone out of the sun
or a hot car. If in low temperature, place your
phone in a warmer place (eg. your pocket), as
battery capacity decreases as the temperature
drops.
• Always use authentic accessories as they enable
your battery to perform at its peak. Nonauthentic accessories (eg. chargers) can damage
your battery and even your phone.
