Basic Operations
22
Precautions for Fingerprint Recognition
Fingerprint recognition accuracy may decrease due to a number of reasons. To maximize the recognition
accuracy, check the following before using the device:
●
The device’s Power/Lock key has a fingerprint sensor. Ensure that the Power/Lock key is not
damaged by a metallic object, such as coin or key.
●
When water, dust or another foreign substance is on the Power/Lock key or your finger, the
fingerprint registration or recognition may not work. Clean and dry your finger before having the
fingerprint recognized.
●
A fingerprint may not be recognized properly if the surface of your finger has a scar or is not
smooth due to being soaked in water.
●
If you bend your finger or use the fingertip only, your fingerprint may not be recognized. Make
sure that your finger covers the entire surface of the Power/Lock key.
●
Scan only one finger for each registration. Scanning more than one finger may affect fingerprint
registration and recognition.
●
The device may generate static electricity if the surrounding air is dry. If the surrounding air is dry,
avoid scanning fingerprints, or touching a metallic object such as coin or key before scanning
fingerprints to remove static electricity.
Registering Fingerprints
You can register and save your fingerprint on the device to use fingerprint identification.
1. Tap
> Settings
> General tab > Fingerprints & security > Fingerprints.
Note: This feature is available when the secured lock is activated. Lock the device with Knock Code,
Pattern, PIN or Password. If the screen lock is not active, configure the lock screen by following the onscreen instructions. See Select Screen Lock for details.
2. Locate the Power/Lock key on the back of the device and gently put your finger on it to register
the fingerprint.
Note: Gently press the Power/Lock key so that the sensor can recognize your fingerprint. If you press the
Power/Lock key with an excessive force, the screen lock function may start or the screen may be turned
off. Ensure that your fingertip covers the entire surface of the sensor of the Power/Lock key.
Basic Operations

3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Repeat scanning the fingerprint by moving your finger little by little until the fingerprint
registers.
4. When the fingerprint registration is done, tap OK.

Tap ADD MORE to register another fingerprint. If you register only one fingerprint and the
corresponding finger is not in a good condition, the fingerprint recognition may not work well.
As the preventive measure against this kind of situation, register multiple fingerprints.
Managing Fingerprints
You can edit or delete registered fingerprints.
1. Tap
> Settings
> General tab > Fingerprints & security > Fingerprints.

Warning: 9-1-1 Emergency Calling
It is recommended that TTY users make emergency calls by other means, including Telecommunications
Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and landline communications. Wireless TTY calls to 9-1-1 may be
corrupted when received by public safety answering points (PSAPs), rendering some communications
unintelligible. The problem encountered appears related to TTY equipment or software used by PSAPs.
This matter has been brought to the attention of the FCC, and the wireless industry and the PSAP
community are currently working to resolve this.

Anti-Theft Guide
You can set up your device to prevent other people from using it if it’s been reset to factory settings
without your permission. For example, if your device is lost, stolen, or wiped, only someone with your
Google Account or screen lock information can use the device.
All you need to make sure your device is protected is:
●
Set a screen lock: If your device is lost or stolen but you have a screen lock set, the device can’t
be erased using the Settings menu unless your screen is unlocked.
●
Add your Google Account on your device: If your device is wiped but you have your Google
Account on it, the device can’t finish the setup process until your Google Account information is
entered again.
After your device is protected, you’ll need to either unlock your screen or enter your Google Account
password if you need to do a factory reset. This ensures that you or someone you trust is doing the reset.
Note: Do not forget your Google Account and password you had added to your device prior to performing
a factory reset. If you can’t provide the account information during the setup process, you won’t be able to
use the device at all after performing the factory reset.
