Certification information (SAR)
THIS DEVICE MEETS INTERNATIONAL
GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO
WAVES
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed and manufactured
not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio
frequency (RF) recommended by international
guidelines (ICNIRP). These limits are part
of comprehensive guidelines and establish
permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines were developed by
independent scientific organisations through
periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific
studies. The guidelines include a substantial

safety margin designed to assure the safety
of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure standard for mobile devices
employs a unit of measurement known as the
Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR
limit stated in the international guidelines is
2.0 W/kg*. Tests for SAR are conducted using
standard operating positions with the device
transmitting at its highest certified power
level in all tested frequency bands. Although
the SAR is determined at the highest certified
power level, the actual SAR of the device
while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the device is
designed to operate at multiple power levels
so as to use only the power required to reach
the network. In general, the closer you are to
a base station, the lower the power output of
the device. Before a phone model is available
for sale to the public, compliance with the
European R&TTE directive must be shown.
This directive includes as one essential
requirement the protection of the health and
the safety for the user and any other person.
The highest SAR value for this device when
tested for use at the ear is 0.826 W/kg.
This device meets RF exposure guidelines
when used either in the normal use position
against the ear or when positioned at least
1.5 cm away from the body. When a carry
case, belt clip or holder is used for body-worn
operation, it should not contain metal and
should position the product at least 1.5 cm
away from your body. In order to transmit
data files or messages, this device requires
a quality connection to the network. In some
cases, transmission of data files or messages
may be delayed until such a connection
is available. Ensure the above separation
distance instructions are followed until the
transmission is completed. The highest SAR
value for this device when tested for use at
the body is 0.631 W/kg.
* The SAR limit for mobile devices used by the
public is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged
over ten grams of body tissue. The guidelines
incorporate a substantial margin of safety to
give additional protection for the public and to
account for any variations in measurements.
SAR values may vary depending on national
reporting requirements and the network band.
For SAR information in other regions please
look under product information at www.

Auto - Your camera will assess the
lighting needed to take a good picture
and use the flash as necessary.
Red-eye reduction - The camera will
flash twice in order to reduce red eye.
Always off - The camera will never
flash. This is useful if you want to save
battery power.

according to your new flash mode.
Note: Whenever you exit the camera,
the flash setting will revert to the default
off mode. You’ll need to switch the flash
back on if you still need it when you reopen
the camera.
TIP! In camera mode the unlock/lock
button functions as an Image Stabilizer
mechanism. The Image Stabilizer compensates
for small movements the camera makes when
you’re shooting a picture. This is useful when
you’re taking photos without the flash, as the
exposure is longer and therefore the camera will
pick up on small movements.
