Important Information
The following topics provide important information that should be read prior to using your HTC One (M8) harman/kardon edition.
Radio Frequency Exposure Operating
Instructions
This device was tested for compliance with the applicable FCC and Industry Canada specific absorption rate (SAR) limits for radio frequency (RF) exposure during typical body-worn operations. To ensure that RF exposure levels remain at or below the tested levels, use a belt-clip, holster, or similar accessory that maintains a minimum separation distance of 1.0 cm between your body and the device, with either the front or back of the device facing towards your body. Such accessories should not contain any metallic components. Body-worn accessories that do not meet these specifications may not ensure compliance with applicable SAR limits and their use should be avoided.
Important Note on Recoverable Data
Files and other data that have been deleted, cleared, removed, or erased from your device may still be recoverable by third-party data recovery software. Even a factory reset may not permanently erase all data from your phone, including personal information.

Wi-Fi Calling
Wi-Fi calling gives you the ability to make and receive phone calls and send and receive text messages over a wireless network. Because Wi-Fi Calling uses a wireless connection, your calls, texts, and data activity won't count against your limits on your Sprint plan. Wi-Fi Calling also enhances coverage in areas where a phone signal is weak.
Warning: 9-1-1 Emergency Calling using Wi-Fi Calling
Because Sprint Wi-Fi Calling is a Voice over IP service that sends calls over the Internet, it’s important to note that 9-1-1 works differently than a regular 9-1-1 call on the Sprint Network.
When you make a 9-1-1 call with a Sprint Wi-Fi Calling-enabled phone, your phone will first attempt to complete your call like any other 9-1-1 call on the Sprint Network. If wireless coverage is not available, your phone will try to complete a 9-1-1 call over Wi-Fi. Because of this, it’s important to always make sure you have an accurate address registered to each Wi-Fi access point you use for Sprint Wi-Fi Calling.
If you would like to order a reminder sticker for your phone that explains how the 9-1-1 process works with Sprint Wi-Fi Calling, please contact Care by dialing 844-665-6327.

Capture Better Photos
Here are some tips on how to improve the quality of your photos on your phone.
Improve Focus
n Your phone’s camera has autofocus, which works best on a subject that is not moving too much. To change the focus, on the Viewfinder, tap the one you want to focus on.
n If the subject is moving, on the Viewfinder, touch and hold the subject to lock the focus.
Take Well-lit Photos
n Your phone automatically adjusts the focus and exposure. If the image appears underexposed or appears dark on the Viewfinder screen, tap a part of the image that is in shadow. Conversely, tap a well-lit object in the image if the image seems to be overexposed. Focus on an object with a neutral tone for a balanced exposure. Keep in mind that tapping on another object may shift the focus from your subject.
n If there are parts of the image that are in shadows and others are in highlights, use HDR mode to capture three shots of different exposures and combine them into one shot. Keep your phone steady or place it on a level surface when using HDR.
n When taking a panorama shot, consider the whole scene and focus on an object that has a neutral tone to help keep the exposure balanced in the composite image.
Other Tips
n In Camera settings, tap Grid to help frame the subject better or improve the composition.
n After capturing the photo, you can fine-tune the contrast, brightness, and other settings in Photo Editor.
Record a Video

Backup and Reset
Find ways on how to back up your data or how to reset the phone.
Backup
Always keep important stuff on your phone. Back up your phone before you erase the storage, do a factory reset, or upgrade to a new phone.
Backup Options
n HTC Sync Manager. Use HTC Sync Manager to import music, photos, and videos to your computer. You can also sync locally stored contacts, calendar events, bookmarks, documents, and playlists to your computer. Likewise, HTC Sync Manager is a good alternative if you don’t want to back up your accounts, settings, and other personal content to the cloud. You can use it to create backups of your phone on your computer. For details, see HTC Sync Manager.
n Other backup options. Separately back up other data and file types if they’re not supported in HTC Backup and HTC Sync Manager. In some apps, you can back up data to the storage on the phone so you can easily restore them after a factory reset. l Messages. Back up your text messages to the storage on the phone, or save them as an email attachment. See Back Up and Restore Your Text Messages.
l Contacts. Save contacts and other personal data to your online accounts so you can just sync them when switching to another phone. If you have locally stored contacts in the People app, export them to the storage on the phone. See Back Up and Restore Your Contacts.
Settings
245
l Files. Manually copy and paste files by connecting your phone to your computer as a disk drive. You can also upload files to online storage and services. Note: If you’re backing up data to the storage, don’t choose to erase the storage when you do a factory reset.

n Phone storage. This storage combines both the internal storage, where apps, email, data, and text messages are stored, and the file storage, where photos, videos, and music files are kept. When you are running out of phone storage, you can free up space by uninstalling apps, changing download settings, or moving files to your computer or to an online storage service.
n SD card (SD card). Use your SD card (purchased separately) as a removable storage to store and access your media and other files on HTC One (M8) or any Android phone, or set it up as an extension of the internal storage. See SD Card Storage Settings.
n USB storage. When you plug in an external USB storage device (such as a USB flash drive or an SD card reader), you can view photos and videos stored on the device right from Gallery and play songs stored on the device in Music. You can also open PDFs and edit Office documents.
You need a special cable adapter to connect your phone and a USB storage device. Your phone supports USB storage devices (except portable hard drives) up to 64 GB. n Online storage. If you’re using an online storage account that’s accessible from your phone, you can store your files to your online storage. SD Card Storage Settings
Use your SD card as removable storage when there's already content such as your media and other files so that you don't lose that content. If you have a brand new SD card, choose whether to use it as removable storage or set it up as an extension of the internal storage.
Removable Storage
Use a new SD card as removable storage to be able to insert and use the card on HTC One (M8) and other Android phones.
Internal Storage
Set up a new SD card as internal storage for more privacy and secure use. This encrypts and formats the SD card to work just like the internal storage. This also expands the storage space since:
n Captured screenshots, camera shots, media, and other files will be stored on the SD card.
n Third-party apps that you installed and their data can be moved between the on-device storage and SD card.
Important: After setting up the SD card as internal storage, the SD card can only be used on HTC One (M8) where it has been formatted.
Set Up Your SD Card as Internal Storage
When you insert a SD card that has not been used on HTC One (M8) before, the card will be mounted as removable storage by default. If the SD card is new or doesn't have content you want to keep, you can format the SD card to use it as internal storage for HTC One (M8).

n Uninstall or disable apps that you never use.
Many apps run processes or sync data in the background even when you’re not using them. If there are apps that you don’t need anymore, uninstall them. See Uninstall Third-party Apps.
If an app came preloaded and can’t be uninstalled, disabling the app can still prevent it from continuously running or syncing data. For details, see Disable Apps.
Limit Background Data and Sync
Background data and sync can use a lot of battery power if you have many apps syncing data in the background. It’s recommended not to let apps sync data too often. Determine which apps can be set with longer sync times, or sync manually.
n In Settings, tap Accounts & sync and check what types of data are being synced in your online accounts. When the battery is starting to run low, temporarily disable syncing some data. n When you’re not traveling from one place to another, sync weather updates of only your current location, rather than in all of your named cities. Open the Weather app, and then tap to edit and remove unneeded cities. n Choose widgets wisely. Some widgets constantly sync data. Consider removing the ones that are not important from your Home screen. n In Play Store, tap > Settings, and then clear Add icon to Home screen to avoid automatically adding Home screen app shortcuts whenever you've installed new apps. Also tap Auto-update apps > Do not auto-update apps if you're fine with updating apps from Play Store manually.
