Charging and Precautions
Smart Charging: Charge Your Device Faster and Safer
Many people find ordinary charging too slow, but worry about the safely 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.
15
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
EMUI 8.1 supports wireless charging, making charging even simpler and easier than before. A Phone
which supports wireless charging can be used together with a charger. The charger may either be
used as a separate accessory or installed in a car, hotel, or in a piece of furniture, making charging
much easier as it avoids the hassle of dealing with incompatible charging ports, finding outlets, and
dealing with the need for space and the bother of cables and plugs.
l
Not all EMUI 8.1 Phones support wireless charging. Please refer to the actual model of the
device you purchased for specific instructions.
l
A wireless charger consists 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 fast charging, your device will use wireless fast charging mode;
otherwise, only normal wireless charging will be available.
16
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
You 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

MirrorLink: Safer and More Enjoyable Driving
MirrorLink allows you to navigate safely and handle incoming calls without using your Phone. You can
access content from MirrorLink-compatible Phone apps through your in-car display, which helps to
minimize distractions when you are driving. MirrorLink also allows you to connect your Phone to your
Bluetooth car kit and headset at the same time and switch seamlessly between the two.
You can use your in-car display to access all MirrorLink-compatible apps on your Phone. For more
information about how to operate your in-car display, consult your vehicle owner's manual.
About MirrorLink
MirrorLink is a device interoperability protocol that allows you to mirror content from one device to
another. For example, you can mirror content from MirrorLink-compatible Phone apps to the in-car
display.
MirrorLink-compatible apps come with built-in support for the MirrorLink protocol. These apps are
installed on your Phone and can be viewed and accessed from your in-car display after you connect
your Phone to your car.
Mirror Phone apps to your in-car display
MirrorLink lets you use Bluetooth or a USB data cable to connect your Phone to your car. You can
then use the MirrorLink protocol to mirror content from MirrorLink-compatible Phone apps to your incar display. This provides a safe, intuitive way for you to interact with MirrorLink-enabled apps on your
Phone and helps to prevent distractions.

Location Information Protection
Location Services: Determine the Location of Your Phone
Location Services collects and provides location information for location-based apps (such as weather,
maps, travel, and shopping apps) on your Phone. The approximate location of your Phone is
determined by GPS positioning (if GPS is enabled and the service is available), mobile network data,
and Wi-Fi positioning (if enabled). If GPS positioning is disabled, apps can still collect location
information in other ways.
Enable or Disable Location Services
After obtaining the location information permission, apps can obtain your location at any time. If your
location information is obtained by a malicious app, you may be at risk of harm or fraud. You can
106
Security and Privacy
enable or disable location services as needed and regularly monitor and manage the allowed
permissions for your apps to protect your privacy and security.
Enable or disable location services: Open
Settings, go to Security & privacy > Location
access, and enable or disable Access my location. When location services are enabled, you can also
set the appropriate positioning mode. When location services are disabled, aside for pre-installed
software, your Phone will stop all apps and services from collecting and using your location
information. The system will ask you to enable location services when you attempt to use these apps.
l
Use Wi-Fi and mobile networks: Calculates your Phone's location using carrier base station
location information or nearby Wi-Fi router location information. The accuracy of the location
information depends largely upon location information gathered from the base station or Wi-Fi
network. Accuracy normally ranges from 100 meters to several kilometers. Network positioning has
low accuracy, but allows for positioning while indoors and uses less battery power.
l
Use GPS, Wi-Fi, and mobile networks: Combines the benefits of GPS positioning and networking
positioning for accurate indoor and outdoor positioning.
l
Use GPS only: Only uses satellites found by your Phone's GPS to determine your position. No
network connection is needed. GPS satellite positioning is more accurate but also uses more battery.
It is accurate within tens of meters. However, indoor positioning may be inaccurate.
l
Features may vary depending on your carrier.
l
Huawei only uses location data to provide you with necessary functions and services, not for
the purpose of identifying and collecting your private information.
Set indoor positioning assistance: Open
access >
Settings, go to Security & privacy > Location
> Scan settings, and enable or disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth scanning. Scanning Wi-Fi
networks and Bluetooth devices will improve the accuracy of indoor positioning.

Enhanced Data Protection: Defend Your Privacy
Worried that your photos, bank account information, or other private data might get leaked if your
Phone is lost or stolen? Huawei Phones now feature security chips in addition to the combined
protection provided by the trusted root key and lock screen password. Whether your data is stored in
a microSD card or internal storage, it will receive the highest level of protection.
Stronger encryption and safeguards: Huawei Phones use a hardware key that cannot be used to
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
of the hardware. This works together with your lock screen password to protect your private data.

Security and Privacy
When you use PrivateSpace, Multi-user, encrypted microSD files, or other features to encrypt photos,

devices support microSD cards.
