Tips for capturing better photos
To get better captures with the Camera app, here are some tips on what to do while taking your
shots.
Before capturing
§ Make sure that the camera and flash lenses are clean and without fingerprints. Use a soft,
clean, microfiber cloth to wipe them.
§ Hold the phone so that your fingers aren't blocking the camera and flash lenses.
For clear, sharp shots
§ HTC Desire 650 has auto features that make taking photos easy. The Photo mode in the
Camera app gives you a quick and reliable way to take photos.
For more creative shots, HTC Desire 650 also features a quick way of adjusting the exposure
level or brightness in real time. Just tap to focus, and then slide upwards repeatedly to make
the subject brighter to bring out additional details or downwards to make it darker and
richer.
§ Tapping the screen to focus uses the image contrast to dynamically readjust, which is
sometimes desirable if you wish to take a macro to get an off-center bokeh effect or take
photos while you're moving.
§ If the subject is moving, on the Viewfinder, press and hold the subject to lock the focus.
§ If there are parts of the image that are in shadows and others are in highlights, use HDR to
capture multiple shots of different exposures and combine them into one shot. Keep
HTC Desire 650 steady or place it on a level surface when using HDR.
§ When taking a panoramic photo, consider the whole scene and focus on an object that has a
neutral tone to help keep the exposure balanced in the composite image.
§ Make sure you're not moving the camera when taking a photo, especially in low light
conditions.
Other tips
§ In Camera settings, tap Grid to help frame the subject better or improve the composition.
§ After capturing, you can enhance the photo in the Google Photos app.

Battery optimization for apps
When you have connections such as Wi-Fi on while the phone is in sleep mode, some apps may still
continue to use the battery. Starting from Android 6.0, battery optimization is enabled for all apps

Tips for extending battery life
How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use HTC Desire 650.
Try out some of these tips to help increase battery life.
Use the power management features
§ Turn Power saver mode and Extreme power saver mode on in Settings.
§ Monitoring your battery usage helps identify what's using the most power so you can choose
what to do about it. For details, see Checking battery usage on page 73.
Manage your connections
§ Turn off wireless connections such as mobile data, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth when not in use.
§ Turn GPS on only when a precise location is needed, such as while using navigation or
location-based apps. See Turning location services on or off on page 138.
§ Turn on Airplane mode when you don't need any wireless connections and you don't want to
receive calls or messages.
Manage your display
Lowering the brightness, letting the display sleep when not in use, and keeping it simple helps save
battery power.
§ Use automatic brightness (the default), or manually lower the brightness.
§ Set the screen timeout to a shorter time.
§ Don't use a live wallpaper for your Home screen. Animation effects are nice to show off to
other people but they drain your battery.
Changing your wallpaper to a plain, black background can also help a little. The less color is
displayed, the less battery is used.
For more details, see Settings and security on page 138 and Personalizing on page 46.
76
Power and storage management
Manage your apps
§ Battery optimization helps extend battery standby time. See Battery optimization for apps
on page 74.
§ Install the latest software and application updates. Updates sometimes include battery
performance improvements.
§ Uninstall or disable apps that you never use.
Many apps run processes or sync data in the background even when you're not using them. If
there are apps that you don't need anymore, uninstall them.
If an app came preloaded and can't be uninstalled, disabling the app can still prevent it from
continuously running or syncing data. See Disabling an app on page 142.
Limit background data and sync
Background data and sync can use a lot of battery power if you have many apps syncing data in the
background. It’s recommended not to let apps sync data too often. Determine which apps can be set
with longer sync times, or sync manually.
§ In Settings, tap Accounts & sync and check what types of data are being synced in your
online accounts. When the battery is starting to run low, temporarily disable syncing some
data.
§ If you have many email accounts, consider prolonging the sync time of some accounts.
In the Mail app, select an account, tap
the settings under Sync schedule.
Settings Sync, Send & Receive, and then adjust
§ When you’re not traveling from one place to another, sync weather updates of only your
current location, rather than in all of your named cities. Open the Weather app, and then tap
to edit and remove unneeded cities.
§ Choose widgets wisely.
Some widgets constantly sync data. Consider removing the ones that are not important from
your Home screen.
§ In Play Store, tap
Settings, and then clear Add icon to Home screen to avoid
automatically adding Home screen app shortcuts whenever you've installed new apps. Also
tap Auto-update apps Do not auto-update apps if you're fine with updating apps from Play
Store manually.
Other tips
To squeeze in a little bit more battery power, try these tips:
§ Tone down the ringtone and media volume.
§ Minimize the use of vibration or sound feedback. In Settings, tap Sound & notification and
choose which ones you don't need and can disable.
§ Check your apps’ settings as you may find more options to optimize the battery.

Storage
Types of storage
Starting from Android 6.0, there have been some changes on how and where downloaded apps and
their data can be stored.
Phone storage
This is the internal storage which contains the Android system, preinstalled apps, email, text
messages, and cached data from the apps. You can also install apps that you've downloaded and
capture photos, videos, and screenshots to this storage.
Storage card
Use your storage card as a removable storage to store and access your media and other files on
HTC Desire 650 or any Android phone, or set it up as an extension of the internal storage. See
Should I use the storage card as removable or internal storage? on page 77.
Should I use the storage card as removable or internal storage?
Use your storage card as removable storage when there's already content such as your media and
other files so that you don't lose these content. If you have a brand new storage card, choose
whether to use it as removable storage or set it up as an extension of the internal storage.
Removable storage
Use a new storage card as removable storage to be able to insert and use the card on HTC Desire 650
and other Android phones.
Internal storage
Set up a new storage card as internal storage for more privacy and secure use. This encrypts and
formats the storage card to work just like the internal storage.
This also expands the internal storage space since:
§ Captured screenshots, camera shots, media, and other files will be stored on the storage card.
§ Third-party apps that you installed and their data can be moved between the phone storage
and storage card.
After setting up the storage card as internal storage, the card can only be used on HTC Desire 650
where it has been formatted.
78
Power and storage management
Setting up your storage card as internal storage
When you insert a storage card that has not been used on HTC Desire 650 before, the card will be
mounted as removable storage by default.
If the storage card is new or doesn't have content you want to keep, you can format the storage card
to use it as internal storage for HTC Desire 650.
§ See Should I use the storage card as removable or internal storage? on page 77 to find out the
differences between using the storage card as removable storage or internal storage.
§ If there are still files on the storage card, back up the files first before you format the card.

4. Follow the onscreen instructions to move your installed apps and their data from the phone
storage to the storage card.
If you no longer want to use your storage card as internal storage, you can reformat the card as
removable storage. Before you do so, make sure to move all the apps and data from the card back
to the phone storage. See Moving apps and data between the phone storage and storage card on
page 78.
Moving apps and data between the phone storage and storage card
If you've set up your storage card as internal storage, you can move third-party apps that you
installed and their data such as photos, media, and downloaded files to the storage card to free up
phone storage space.
If you no longer want to use your storage card as internal storage, make sure to move all the apps
and data from the card back to the phone storage.
1. From the Home screen, tap
Settings Storage.
2. Tap the name of your storage card if you're moving app data from the phone storage to the
card, or tap Phone storage if you're moving data from the storage card back to the phone

Freeing up storage space
As you use HTC Desire 650, you'll accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are
some tips on how to free up phone storage space.
Manage photos and videos
§ After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot. Discard the rest, if you don't
need them.
§ After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. Delete original files or
move them elsewhere, such as to your computer.
§ If you're only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. Hi-res video takes up
more space.
Remove unused themes
Themes can quickly consume up storage space because themes can include images, sounds and
icons. Remove themes you're not using. See Deleting a theme on page 48.
Back up data and files
Keep only the most recent data in your apps and files that you often need to use. You can back up
your other data and files. For some tips, see Ways of backing up files, data, and settings on page 85.
