near fuels or chemicals. Turn off your device whenever directed
by warning signs or instructions. Your device could cause
explosions or fire in and around fuel or chemical storage and
transfer areas or blasting areas. Do not store or carry flammable
liquids, gases, or explosive materials in the same compartment
as the device, its parts, or accessories.
Reduce the risk of repetitive motion injuries
While using your device, hold the device with a relaxed grip,
press the keys lightly, use special features that reduce the
number of keys you have to press (such as templates and
predictive text), and take frequent breaks.
Safety and usage information
119
Do not use the device if the screen is cracked
or broken
Broken glass or acrylic could cause injury to your hand and
face. Bring the device to a Samsung Service Centre to replace
the screen. Damage caused by careless handling will void your
manufacturer’s warranty.

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 0.238 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 at the back of this manual
demonstrates your device’s compliance with the European
Radio & Terminal Telecommunications Equipment (R&TTE)
directive. For more information about the SAR and related EU
standards, visit the Samsung mobile phone website.
