Battery
Your Android™ phone keeps you connected and updated wherever you are. This affects
the battery life of your phone. Below are some tips on how to prolong battery life while still
staying connected and up to date.
Battery performance
Standby time is the amount of time the battery can power your phone when calls are not being
received or made. The more time your phone is in standby, the longer the battery lasts.
The following tips can help you improve battery performance:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Charge your phone often.
Downloading data from the Internet is power consuming. Turn off all data connections by
disabling the Data traffic option from the status bar when you're not using the Internet.
Set synchronization applications (used to synchronize your email, calendar and contacts),
to synchronize manually. You can also synchronize automatically but increase the intervals.
Check the battery usage menu in the phone to see which applications use the most power.
Your battery consumes more power when you use video and music streaming applications
such as YouTube™. Some Android Market™ applications also consume more power. Limit
your use of such applications if your battery is running low.
Increase the interval between updates or set the interval to manual for Facebook™ and
Twitter™ updates.
Turn off GPS, Bluetooth™ and Wi-Fi® when you don't need these features. You can turn
them on and off more easily by adding the Power control widget to your Home screen. You
do not need to turn off 3G.

•
•
Lower the screen display brightness level.
Turn off your phone or use Flight mode if you are in an area with no network coverage.
Otherwise, your phone repeatedly scans for available networks, and this consumes power.
Use a handsfree device to listen to music. This consumes less battery than when you listen
through the phone's loudspeakers.
Visit www.sonyericsson.com/support or go to the Sony Ericsson Support
application
in your phone for an extended User guide. Here you can also find a video on how to
maximize the battery performance.
Lowering the screen display brightness and keeping the Bluetooth™ and Wi-Fi® enabled even
though not in use, have a minor impact on the available battery life.

Charging the battery
The phone battery is partly charged when you buy the phone. It may take a few minutes
before the battery icon appears on the screen when you connect the phone to a power
source. You can still use your phone while it is charging.
The battery will start to discharge a little after it is fully charged and then charges again after a
certain time. This is to extend battery life and may result in the charge status showing a level
below 100 percent.

Sensors
Your phone includes a light sensor and a proximity sensor. The light sensor detects the
ambient light level and adjusts the brightness of the screen accordingly. The proximity
sensor turns the touch screen off when your face touches the screen. This prevents you
from unintentionally activating phone functions when you are engaged in a call.
Home screen
The Home screen is the starting point of your phone. You can personalize the Home screen
by adding widgets, or by changing the wallpaper and the applications in the corners.
15
This is an Internet version of this publication. © Print only for private use.
When you add more than one widget, the Home screen extends beyond the screen width.
The corners on the Home screen are used to access applications or bookmarks quickly.
You can add any application or bookmark to the corners.
When you go to the Home screen, some applications may continue to run in the background. If
you do not want applications to run in the background, you should exit each application you have
opened before going to the Home screen.
A widget is a part of an application on the Home screen. It displays important information from
a particular application. For example, the Sony Ericsson Timescape™ widget displays incoming
messages and the Media widget allows you to start playing music directly.

If you have not set up your phone for synchronization with a web service, or imported SIM
contacts, you can choose to do so the first time you open the Phonebook application. If you

you need to set up the synchronization with the service before you import the contacts from the
SIM/memory card.
Getting contacts into your phone
If you want to transfer contacts from your old phone to your new phone using any of the methods
described below you should first refer to the User guide of your old phone. Also, remember that
you need to back up your old contacts first before you can import them to your new phone. You
can do this either by synchronizing your old phone contacts with a synchronization account, or
by exporting the contacts to your SIM card or to a memory card.
You can get existing contact information into your phone using several methods:
•
•
•
•
•
Use a synchronization service, such as Sony Ericsson Sync or Google Sync™. This way,
you can manage your contacts both directly in the phone and from a computer.
Import contacts from a SIM card. You may not be able to transfer all information from one
phone to another using this method because of limited memory on the SIM card. Also,
some phones do not support the export of contacts to a SIM card.
Import contacts from a memory card. Please note that it is not always possible to transfer
contacts from one phone to another using this method, since some phones do not support
the import or export of contacts from/to a memory card.
Use a Bluetooth™ connection to transfer contacts from one phone to another. Both phones
need to be switched on. In some phones, Bluetooth™ only works when a SIM card is
inserted.
You can send contacts via messaging services such as SMS, MMS or email. Not all phones
support the sending of contacts via messaging services.

Bluetooth™ wireless technology
Turn on the Bluetooth™ function in your phone and create wireless connections to other
Bluetooth™ compatible devices such as computers, handsfree accessories, and phones.
Bluetooth™ connections work better within a 10 meter (33 feet) range, with no solid objects
in between. In some cases you have to manually pair your phone with other Bluetooth™
devices. Remember to set your phone to discoverable if you want other Bluetooth™
devices to detect it. Alternatively, you can send files to other devices by email, or transfer
them to your computer using a USB cable connection.
Interoperability and compatibility among Bluetooth® devices vary.

Pairing with another Bluetooth™ device
When you pair your phone with another device, you can, for example, connect your phone
to a Bluetooth™ handsfree or a Bluetooth™ car kit and use these devices to make and
receive calls.
Once you have paired your phone with a Bluetooth™ device the phone will remember this
pairing. When pairing the phone with a Bluetooth™ device, you may need to enter a
passcode. Your phone will automatically try the generic passcode 0000. If this does not
work, refer to your Bluetooth™ device documentation for the device passcode. You do not
need to re-enter the passcode the next time you connect to a paired Bluetooth™ device.
Some Bluetooth™ devices, for example, most Bluetooth™ headsets, require you to both
pair and connect with the other device.
You can pair your phone with several Bluetooth™ devices, but you can only connect to
one Bluetooth™ profile at the same time.

Tips when using the camera
Rule of thirds
Don’t place your subject in the middle of the frame. By placing it a third of the way in, you
achieve a better result.
Hold it steady
Avoid blurry photos by holding the camera steady. Try to steady your hand by leaning it
against a solid object.
Get closer
By getting as close as possible to your subject, you can fill the viewfinder with your subject.
Stay within the flash range
Photos taken beyond the maximum flash range will be too dark. The maximum flash range
is about four steps from the subject.
Consider variety
Think about different angles, and move towards the subject. Take some vertical photos.
Try different positions.
Use a plain background
A plain background helps highlight your subject.
Keep your lens clean
Mobile phones are used in all kinds of weather and places, and carried in pockets and bags.
This results in the camera lens becoming dirty and covered with fingerprints. Use a soft
cloth to clean the lens.

Location services
You can get your location determined either by using wireless networks or GPS technology.
Wireless networks technology determines your position fast but accuracy may vary. If you
use GPS technology it may take a little longer, but it will find your exact position. You can
enable both wireless networks and GPS to benefit from both technologies when trying to
find your position.
Using GPS technology
Your phone has a GPS receiver that uses satellite signals to calculate your location. Some
GPS features use the Internet. Data rates and charges may apply.
When you use features that require the GPS receiver to find your location, make sure you
have a clear view of the sky. If the GPS receiver does not find your location after a few
minutes, you should move to another location. To help the search, stand still and do not
cover the GPS antenna. The position of the GPS antenna is shown in the image below. The
first time you use the GPS receiver, it may take up to 10 minutes before your location is
found.
If you cannot use some GPS features, see I cannot use Internet-based services on page 97.
Sony Ericsson does not warrant the accuracy of any location services, including but not limited
to navigational services.
