Dynamic Noise Suppression from Audience
Your phone is equipped with an advanced voice processing chip that delivers clear mobile calls by suppressing background noise,
intermittent sounds (like a siren or nearby conversation), and echoes, allowing you to hear and be heard nearly anywhere.
How Does It Work?
Based on the intelligence of the human hearing system, the technology:
• Captures, evaluates and distinguishes all the sound signals surrounding your phone, and the person you're speaking with.
• Then isolates the primary voice in conversation and filters out the background noise - so the person you're calling hears only your voice,
without disturbing background noise.
• Dynamically equalizes and adjusts voice volume to optimize your calling experience, so you can hear clearly and don't need to speak louder to
overcome surrounding noise.
The noise suppression technology is built-in and already enabled in your new mobile phone. So it's ready to provide unsurpassed
voice clarity with every call.

Charging the Battery
Your device is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. A
wall charger, which is used for charging the battery, is
included with your device. Use only approved batteries and
chargers. Ask your local Samsung dealer for further details.
Before using your device for the first time, you must fully
charge the battery. A discharged battery recharges fully in
approximately 4 hours.
Note: Verify that the battery is installed prior to connecting the
wall charger. If both the wall charger is connected and
the battery is not installed, the handset will power cycle
continuously and prevent proper operation. Failure to
unplug the wall charger before you remove the battery,
can cause the device to become damaged.
Important! It is recommended you fully charge the battery
before using your device for the first time.
1. Connect the USB cable to the charging head.

Warning! While the device is charging, if the touch screen
does not function due to an unstable power supply
unplug the USB power adapter from the power outlet
or unplug the USB cable from the device.
Correct
Incorrect
Note: This illustration displays both the correct and incorrect
orientation for connecting the charger. If the charger is
incorrectly connected, damage to the accessory port will
occur therefore voiding the phone’s warranty.
14
5. When charging is finished, first unplug the charger’s
power plug from the AC wall outlet, then disconnect
the charger’s connector from the phone.
Important! If your handset has a touch screen display, please
note that a touch screen responds best to a light
touch from the pad of your finger or a non-metallic
stylus. Using excessive force or a metallic object
when pressing on the touch screen may damage
the tempered glass surface and void the warranty.
For more information, refer to “Standard Limited
Warranty” on page 359.
Low Battery Indicator
When the battery level is low and only a few minutes of talk
time remain (~15% charge), a warning tone sounds and the
“Battery low” message repeats at regular intervals on the
display. In this condition, your device conserves its remaining
battery power, by dimming the backlight.
When the battery level becomes too low, the device
automatically turns off.
The on-screen battery charge is represented (by default) as a
colored battery icon. You can also choose to display a
percentage value. Having a percentage value on-screen can
provide a better idea of the remaining charge on the battery.
Press
➔
and then tap Settings ➔
My device tab ➔ Display ➔ Display battery percentage.
For more information, refer to “Display Settings” on page
286.
Extending Your Battery Life
Active applications, light levels, Bluetooth usage, and GPS
functionality all act to drain your battery. The following is a
list of helpful tips that can help conserve your battery power:
• Reduce your backlight on time.
• Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.
• Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use.
• Deactivate the GPS when not needed. Most applications using
this function will periodically query the GPS satellites for your
current location; each query drains your battery.
• Do not wait until your battery is completely depleted before
charging your device. Repeating this process of a complete
discharge and recharge can over time reduce the storage
capacity of any battery.
• Turn off Automatic application sync.
• Use the Power Saving feature to deactivate some hardware and
interface functions.
• Check the Battery use screen to review what features or functions
have been consuming your battery resources.
• Check the Running Services and close any unnecessary
applications.
Getting Started

• Use the Task Manager feature to end/shutdown background
applications that are still running. These minimized applications
can, over time, cause your device to “slow down”.
• Turn off any streaming services after use (see Running Services).
• Animated wallpapers use processing power, memory, and more
power. Change your Live Wallpaper to a non-animated Wallpaper
gallery or Gallery image.

Sharing Pictures
Pictures are the best way of remembering the moment, but
an even better treat is to share them with others.
Two new features allow you to either instantly share a series
of pictures as they are taken or quickly share a picture
without using email or messaging.
• Share Shot is a great way to instantly share a series of pictures
among a group of users. The best example for this feature is
having multiple users instantly sharing each others pictures at a
company or family gathering. As each person takes a separate
picture with their own device, they are all pooled together and
instantly appear in each user’s Gallery.
No more “Email your pictures to me later”. Each person walks out
of the event with all the pictures taken by everyone.
This method of image transfer requires that both devices have
Wi-Fi Direct active and be paired prior to use.
Note: You can only share a shot with other external users who
also have their Wi-Fi Direct feature active.
• S Beam Transfer uses the NFC (near Field Communication)
feature found on your device to transmit large files directly to
another compatible device by direct touch.
This method of image transfer requires NFC and S Beam to be
enabled prior to use.
For more information, refer to “Using S Beam to Share
Pictures” on page 163.

multiple users can Wi-Fi connect their devices and then all
share each others pictures in real-time. This is really useful

make sure you all can share your pics at a later date.
For more information, refer to “Wi-Fi Direct Setup and
Settings” on page 268.
