Charging and Precautions
Smart Charging: Charge Your Device Faster and Safer
Many people find ordinary charging too slow, but worry about the safety of fast-charging. Worry no
more: SmartCharge has you covered. SmartCharge establishes a direct connection between the Phone
and the charger and intelligently coordinates the charging voltage and current based on the battery
power of the Phone to provide a smarter, faster, and safer charge.
23
New Device
Make sure you are using the original charger and USB cable when charging your Phone. Using a
third-party charger or USB cable may cause repeated restarts, longer charges, overheating, and in
extreme cases, Phone battery damage or even explosion.
Wireless Charging, the New Choice for Easy Charging
Wireless charging makes charging even simpler and easier than before. A Phone which supports
wireless charging can be used with a wireless charger. The charger may either be used as a separate
accessory or placed in a car, hotel, or in a piece of furniture. Charging your device is much easier now,
and it frees up outlets without the hassle of dealing with incompatible charging ports and searching
for outlets.
l
Only certain Phone models support wireless charging. Please refer to specific instructions for
the actual device model purchased.
l
A wireless charger consists of a charging head, a charging cable, and a charging cradle. The
charging cradle doesn't come with the device. Please purchase an official cradle on Vmall to
ensure a safe and quality charging.
l
The charging mode supported by your Phone depends on the charger that comes with your
device. If your charger supports high voltage fast charging, your device will use wireless fast
charging mode; otherwise, only normal wireless charging will be available.
24
New Device
The process of using your wireless charger is as follows:
1
Connect the charging cradle to the power supply. Use the charging head and cable that come with
your device, and the wireless charging cradle that you purchased.
2
Place the cradle on the horizontal surface or on the specific area recommended by the
manufacturer.
3
Place the device on the cradle with the screen facing upwards. For optimal performance, place
your device in the center of the cradle or on the specific area recommended by the manufacturer.
4
Your device will start charging a few seconds after being placed on the wireless charger, and you
will hear a beep when charging begins. When charging starts, you will see either a
icon displayed in the status bar
or

Phone is lost or accessed by an unauthorized user.
Set a lock screen password: Open

numbers, letters, and special characters. Be sure to memorize the password so that you don't get
locked out of your Phone if you forget it. Go to Set lock screen password > Change unlock
method > Password, follow the prompts to set up a password.

entered your screen lock password for 3 days, the system will require that you enter the
password to unlock your device.

NFC
Introduction to NFC
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology that enables short-distance wireless communication.
Through NFC's contactless communication, two devices can transfer data in real time when they are
within 10 cm (4 inches) of each other. In addition to data transfer, NFC also allows you to make
payments.

public transport, and mobile payments.
Scenarios
HCE emulation: Allows your Phone to act as a QuickPass-enabled bank card by associating your
device with a physical bank card in a banking app.
Limitations
HCE emulation: For example, UnionPay Cloud QuickPass. First download the app for your bank card
and associate your card with the app. For details, consult your bank's customer service center. Then
enable NFC, set a specific bank app as your default payment app in NFC while keeping the screen on
and unlocked. To make Cloud QuickPass payments, your card and the POS device must support
QuickPass.

decrypt data when separated from the Phone. Based on the trusted root key, the encrypted
components are incorporated into the memory control chip to enhance the data protection capability
