Device overheating situations and solutions

When the device heats up while charging the battery

While charging, the device and the charger may become hot. During wireless charging or fast charging, the device may feel hotter to the touch. This does not affect the device’s lifespan or performance and is in the device’s normal range of operation. If the battery becomes too hot, the charger may stop charging.

5

Basics

Do the following when the device heats up:

• Disconnect the charger from the device and close any running apps. Wait for the device to cool down and then begin charging the device again.

• If the lower part of the device overheats, it could be because the connected USB cable is damaged. Replace the damaged USB cable with a new Samsung-approved one.

• When using a wireless charger, do not place foreign materials, such as metal objects, magnets, and magnetic stripe cards, between the device and the wireless charger.

The wireless charging or fast charging feature is only available on supported models.

When the device heats up during use

When you use features or apps that require more power or use them for extended periods, your device may temporarily heat up due to increased battery consumption. Close any running apps and do not use the device for a while.

The following are examples of situations in which the device may overheat. Depending on the functions and apps you use, these examples may not apply to your model.

• During the initial setup after purchase or when restoring data

• When downloading large files

• When using apps that require more power or using apps for extended periods

Device limitations when the device overheats

When the device heats up, the features and performance may be limited or the device may turn off to cool down. This feature is only available on supported models.

• If the device becomes hotter than usual, a device overheating message will appear. To lower the device’s temperature, the screen brightness and the performance speed will be limited and battery charging will stop. Running apps will be closed and you will only be able to make emergency calls until the device cools down.

• If the device overheats or feels hot for a prolonged period, a power off message will appear. Turn off the device, and wait until it cools down.

Battery

Charging the battery

Charge the battery before using it for the first time or when it has been unused for extended periods.

Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables. Unapproved chargers or cables can cause the battery to explode or damage the device.

Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.

To save energy, unplug the charger when not in use. The charger does not have a power switch, so you must unplug the charger from the electric socket when not in use to avoid wasting power. The charger should remain close to the electric socket and easily accessible while charging.

1

Connect the USB cable to the USB power adaptor, and plug the USB cable into the device’s multipurpose jack.

2

Plug the USB power adaptor into an electric socket.

3

After fully charging, disconnect the device from the charger. First unplug the charger from the device, and then unplug it from the electric socket.

11

Basics

Reducing the battery consumption

Your device provides various options that help you conserve battery power.

• Optimise the device using the device maintenance feature.

• When you are not using the device, turn off the screen by pressing the Power key.

• Activate power saving mode.

• Close unnecessary apps.

• Deactivate the Bluetooth feature when not in use.

• Deactivate the Wi-Fi feature when not in use.

• Deactivate auto-syncing of apps that need to be synced, such as emails.

• Decrease the backlight time.

• Decrease the screen brightness.

Battery charging tips and precautions

• When the battery power is low, the battery icon appears empty.

• If the battery is completely discharged, the device cannot be turned on immediately when the charger is connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a few minutes before turning on the device.

• If you use multiple apps at once, network apps, or apps that need a connection to another device, the battery will drain quickly. To avoid losing power during a data transfer, always use these apps after fully charging the battery.

• Using a power source other than the charger, such as a computer, may result in a slower charging speed due to a lower electric current.

• The device can be used while it is charging, but it may take longer to fully charge the battery.

• If the device receives an unstable power supply while charging, the touchscreen may not function. If this happens, unplug the charger from the device.

• While charging, the device and the charger may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the device’s lifespan or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the charger may stop charging.

• If you charge the device while the multipurpose jack is wet, the device may be damaged.

Thoroughly dry the multipurpose jack before charging the device.

• If the device is not charging properly, take the device and the charger to a Samsung

Service Centre.

Fingerprint recognition

In order for fingerprint recognition to function, your fingerprint information needs to be registered and stored in your device. After registering, you can set the device to use your fingerprint for the features below:

• Screen lock

• Web sign-in

• Verify Samsung account

• Secure Folder

• Samsung Pay

• This feature may not be available depending on the region or service provider.

• Fingerprint recognition uses the unique characteristics of each fingerprint to enhance the security of your device. The likelihood of the fingerprint sensor confusing two different fingerprints is very low. However, in rare cases where separate fingerprints are very similar the sensor may recognise them as identical.

• If you use your fingerprint as a screen lock method, your fingerprint cannot be used to unlock the screen when turning on the device. To use the device, you must unlock the screen using a pattern, PIN, or password you set when registering the fingerprint. Be careful not to forget your pattern, PIN, or password.

• If your fingerprint is not recognised, unlock the device using the pattern, PIN, or password you set when registering the fingerprint, and then re-register your fingerprints. If your pattern, PIN, or password is forgotten, you will not be able to use the device if you do not reset it. Samsung is not responsible for any data loss or inconvenience caused by forgotten unlock codes.

125

Settings

For better fingerprint recognition

When you scan your fingerprints on the device, be aware of the following conditions that may affect the feature’s performance:

• The Home key contains a fingerprint recognition sensor. Ensure that the Home key is not scratched or damaged by metal objects, such as coins, keys, and necklaces.

• Covering the fingerprint recognition area with protective films, stickers, or other accessories may decrease the fingerprint recognition rate. If the fingerprint recognition area is initially covered with a protective film, remove it before using the fingerprint recognition sensor.

• Ensure that the fingerprint recognition area and your fingers are clean and dry.

• The device may not recognise fingerprints that are affected by wrinkles or scars.

• The device may not recognise fingerprints from small or thin fingers.

• If you bend your finger or use a fingertip, the device may not recognise your fingerprints.

Make sure to cover the entire Home key with your finger.

• To improve recognition performance, register fingerprints of the hand used most often to perform tasks on the device.

• In dry environments, static electricity can build up in the device. Avoid using this feature in dry environments or before using the feature, discharge static electricity by touching a metal object.
