Unboxing your Phone
Charging your phone
Your phone comes with a long-lasting battery and efficient power-saving technology. This section
outlines how to care for your battery in order to maximise its lifespan.
Using your battery
l
You can recharge your battery many times, but all batteries have a limited lifespan. If you
notice a significant deterioration in your phone's battery life, contact an authorised Huawei
service centre for a replacement battery. The battery is built into the phone and is not
removable. Do not attempt to remove the battery yourself.
l
Your phone may become warm after prolonged use or when exposed to high ambient
temperatures. This is entirely normal. If your phone becomes hot to the touch, stop charging it
and disable unnecessary features. Place your phone in a cool location and allow it to cool
down to room temperature. Avoid prolonged contact with the surface of your phone if it
becomes hot.
l
When charging your phone, only use genuine Huawei batteries, chargers and USB cables.
Third-party accessories are a potential safety hazard and may impair your phone's
performance. Avoid using your phone when it is charging. Do not cover your phone or the
power adapter.
l
Charging times may vary depending on the ambient temperature and the remaining battery
level.
l
A low battery warning will be displayed when the battery level is low.
l
Your phone will switch off automatically when the battery is nearly empty.
Visit the official Huawei website and download the user guide for your device for information
on how to care for your battery.
Battery status indicator
The battery status is indicated by your phone's indicator light and the battery icon in the status
bar.
l
If the status indicator blinks red and the battery icon changes to
, the battery level is below
5%.
l
The status indicator and the battery icon indicate the battery status during charging. A red
status indicator and a
battery icon indicate that the battery level is below 10%. A yellow
status indicator and a
battery icon indicate that the battery level is between 10% and 80%.
A green status indicator and a
battery icon indicate that the battery level is between 80%
and 100%. A green status indicator and a
battery icon indicate that the battery is fully
charged and you can unplug the charging cable from your phone.
2
Unboxing your Phone
If your phone does not respond when you press the power button, this indicates that the
battery is empty. Charge your battery for at least 10 minutes using a genuine Huawei
charger and then turn on your phone.
Turning your phone on and off
l
To turn on your phone, press and hold the power button until your phone vibrates and the
screen turns on.
l
