Battery life
Your phone is like a small computer that processes tons of
information and apps at lightning-fast speed. Depending on
what you use, that can take a lot of power.
When your phone is stationary, not charging or not in use for a
period of time, unnecessary background processes are shut
down to optimise battery life.

extension of the internal storage of your phone.
To delete all the information (music, photos and files) from your
memory card, touch Apps
>
Settings > Storage & USB >
SD card > Erase.
After you have inserted an SD card into your phone, you will be
prompted to select either portable or internal storage.
Virtual Private Networks (VPN)

Caution: do not remove a memory card while your phone is
using it or writing files to it.
• Portable storage: store your pictures, videos, audio and
other media files. You can remove the SD card at any time

need to format it. Before doing so, please remember that
formatting erases all the data stored on your SD card.
