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.
1 Connect the USB cable to the USB power adaptor, and then plug the end of the USB cable
into the multipurpose jack.
Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any
damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.
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.
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.
8
Basics
Viewing the remaining charging time
While charging, open the Home screen and tap Apps → Settings → Battery.
The actual charging time may vary depending on the status of your device and the
charging conditions. The remaining charging time may not be displayed when you
charge the device in very cold or very hot conditions.
Reducing the battery consumption
Your device provides various options that help you conserve battery power.
• Optimise the device using the Smart manager.
• When you are not using the device, switch to sleep mode by pressing the Power key.

• 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 disconnecting from the network
or losing power during a data transfer, always use these apps after fully charging the
battery.
• Using a power source other than the USB power adaptor, such as a computer, may result
in a slower charging speed due to a lower electric current.
9
Basics
• 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 the device is not charging properly, take the device and the charger to a Samsung
Service Centre.

fingerprint for the features below:
• Screen lock
• Web sign-in
• Verify Samsung account
• This feature may not be available depending on the region or service provider.

confusing two different fingerprints is very low. However, in rare cases where
separate fingerprints are very similar the sensor may recognise them as identical.
78
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

• The screen protector supplied with the device may cause the fingerprint recognition
sensor to malfunction. Remove the screen protector to improve fingerprint sensitivity.
• 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.
