Exposure to radio frequency energy
Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information.
This tablet device model LG- V480 has been designed to comply
with applicable safety requirements for exposure to radio waves. These
requirements are based on scientific guidelines that include safety margins
designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
•The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). Tests for SAR are conducted using
standardised methods with the device transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all used frequency bands.
•While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various
LG device models, they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for
exposure to radio waves.
•The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2 W/kg averaged over 10 g of
•The highest SAR value for this device when worn on the body, as described
in this user guide, is 0.497 W/kg.
•This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used either in the normal
use position against the ear or when positioned at least 0.00 cm away
from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or holder is used for body-worn
operation, it should not contain metal and should position the product at
least 0.00 cm away from your body.
In order to transmit data files or messages, this device requires a quality
connection to the network. In some cases, transmission of data files or
messages may be delayed until such a connection is available. Ensure the
above separation distance instructions are followed until the transmission is

Your Home screen
Touch screen tips
Here are some tips on how to navigate on your tablet.
•To select an item, touch the center of the icon.
•Do not press too hard; the touch screen is sensitive enough to pick up a
light, yet firm touch.
•Use the tip of your finger to touch the option you want. Be careful not to
touch any other keys.
Tap or touch
A single finger tap selects items, links, shortcuts and letters on the
on-screen keyboard.
Touch and hold
Touch and hold an item on the screen by touching it and not lifting your
finger until an action occurs. For example, to open a contact's available
options, touch and hold the contact in the Contacts list until the context
menu opens.
Touch and hold an item for a moment and then, without lifting your finger,
move your finger on the screen until you reach the target position. You can
drag items on the Home screen to reposition them.
Swipe or slide
To swipe or slide, quickly move your finger across the surface of the screen,
without pausing when you first touch it (so you don’t drag an item instead).
For example, you can slide the screen up or down to scroll through a list, or
browse through the different Home screen canvases by swiping from left to
right (and vice versa).
Double-tap to zoom on a webpage or a map. For example, quickly doubletap a section of a webpage to adjust that section to fit the width of the
screen. You can also double-tap to zoom in and out when viewing a picture
and when using Maps. Double-tap a word to highlight it. Double-tap can also
activate the KnockON feature to turn the touchscreen on or off.
Use your index finger and thumb in a pinching or spreading motion to zoom
in or out when using the browser, Maps, or when browsing pictures.
Rotate the screen
From many applications and menus, the orientation of the screen adjusts to
the device's physical orientation.
Home screen
