Before you start using your new phone you may need:

  • Nano SIM card. To take full advantage of your new smartphone’s capabilities, you should install a SIM card. The SIM card will enable you to place calls or use mobile data to connect to various Internet services. Your mobile service provider will give you a card and the codes needed for it (PIN and PUK) when you buy a mobile contract or a prepaid SIM card. Make sure you get a suitable contract that fit your needs regarding calls and mobile data.
  • Memory card (optional). You can use a memory card (MicroSD) to increase the storage space of your phone to be able to store more files, pictures, videos etc. Insert a memory card, reboot your device and follow the instruction to select how to use your memory card. We suggest you to use a high speed memory card.
  • Google™ account: To be able to fully use your new smartphone you need a Google™ Account. If you don’t have one yet, no worries, as you will be guided through an account setup when starting the phone for the first time. It can however be a good idea to think of a Username and Password as these will be used for many services, such as Gmail™, YouTube™, Google Maps™, Google Drive™, Google Photos™ and other Google products.
  • Wi-Fi access. If you have a Wi-Fi access point available, it’s always good to connect to that to reduce costs for data traffic and possibly increase data speed.


  1. Use your fingernail or other similar object, to gently pull out the SIM/memory card tray.
  2. Place the SIM card into the correct tray slot to ensure that it can be recognized by the phone.
    Make sure that the SIM card’s contacts are facing downwards and that the cut off corner is down, as shown. Take care not to scratch or bend the contacts on the SIM card.
    This device only accepts nano SIM card (4FF). Using a modified incompatible card that is thicker than a nano SIM card may damage the card itself, the card slot and corrupt any data stored on the card.
  3. You may also optionally place a memory card in the tray. Make sure that the memory card’s contacts are facing downwards, as shown. Compatible card type: MicroSD, MicroSDHC, MicroSDXC.
  4. Insert the SIM card tray back into its slot.

Charge your phone. Your phone may already come with enough charge to be powered on right out of the box, but we recommended to give it a full charge before first using it.

Only use batteries, charger and accessories that have been approved for use with this particular model. Connecting other accessories may be dangerous and may invalidate the phone’s type approval and guarantee.

Insert the small end of the included USB cable into the charging port on the phone and other end into the wall charger that you plug into to a wall socket.


Note: When turning on your phone, the installed applications may need to be updated. Application updates requires Internet connection and can take a few minutes. A Wi-Fi connection is preferable. The phone may appear a bit slow during the update.

  • Press and hold the power button until the display lights up.
  • Wait for the phone to start.
  • Enter your SIM card PIN if requested.
  • Follow the setup guide to get on the Internet and start personalising your new phone.
  • Sign in with an existing Google account or setup a new account.


The first time you turn on your phone, a Startup guide is launched. Follow the instructions to start personalising your new phone.
In the beginning you will get a question asking “Is it your first time using a Smartphone?”.

  • If you select “Yes, I am a beginner”, you will get some instructions on how to navigate a Smartphone and how to handle the touch screen.
  • If you select “No, I have already used one” or “I’m setting up the phone for someone else” you will go directly to some audio/vision and handling settings.

This device has an internal battery and therefore the hardware cannot be rebooted by the removal of the battery.

Note: For hearing aid compatibility, turn off Bluetooth connectivity.

This phone is hearing aid compatible. Hearing aid compatibility is not a guarantee that a specific hearing aid will work with a specific phone. Mobile phones contain radio transmitters that may interfere with hearing aid performance. This phone has been tested for use with hearing aids, for some of the wireless technologies that it uses, but there may be some newer wireless technologies that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. To ensure that a specific hearing aid works well with this phone, test them together before making a purchase.
The standard for hearing aid compatibility contains two types of ratings:

  • M: To use your hearing aid in this mode, make sure that your hearing aid is set to “M-mode” or acoustic coupling mode, and position the phones receiver near the hearing aid’s built-in microphone. For the best results, try using the phone in different positions relative to your hearing aid—for example, placing the receiver slightly above the ear may result in better performance for hearing aids with microphones positioned behind the ear.
  • T: To use your hearing aid in this mode, make sure that your hearing aid is set to “T-mode” or telecoil coupling mode (not all hearing aids have this mode). For the best results, try using the phone in different positions relative to your hearing aid—for example, placing the receiver slightly below or in front of the ear may result in better performance.
    Your device meets the M4/T4 level rating.


This device meets applicable international safety requirements for exposure to radio waves. Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields) recommended by international guidelines from the independent scientific organization ICNIRP (International Commission of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection).
The radio wave exposure guidelines use a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit for mobile devices is 2 W/kg averaged over 10 grams of tissue and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.

Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The highest SAR values under the ICNIRP guidelines for this device model are:
Head SAR: 0.55 W/kg
Body SAR: 1.74 W/kg

During normal use, the SAR values for this device are usually well below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimize interference on the network, the output power of your mobile device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output of the device, the lower its SAR value.

This device meets RF exposure guidelines when used against the head or when positioned at least 0.5 cm away from the body. When a carry case, belt clip or other form of device holder is used for body-worn operation, it should not contain metal and should provide at least the above stated separation distance from the body.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that current scientific information does not indicate the need for any special precautions when using mobile devices. If you are interested in reducing your exposure, they recommend you reduce your usage or use a hands-free accessory to keep the device away from your head and body.
