Getting to know your device Using the keys

Back Go back to the previous screen Close the on-screen keypad, a dialog box, an options menu, or the Notification panel

Home Go to the Home screen

Task Tap to open a window showing your most recently used applications and a small apps bar

Using the touchscreen A protective plastic sheet is already attached to the screen of your device when you buy it. You should peel off this sheet before using the touchscreen. Otherwise, the touchscreen might not function properly.

When your device is on and left idle for a set period of time, the screen darkens to save battery power, and locks automatically. This lock prevents unwanted actions on the touchscreen when you are not using it. You can also set personal locks to protect your subscription and make sure only you can access content on your device.

The device screen is made from glass. Do not touch the screen if the glass is cracked or shattered. Avoid trying to repair a damaged screen yourself. Glass screens are sensitive to drops and mechanical shocks. Cases of negligent care are not covered by the Sony warranty service.

To open or highlight an item Tap the item.

Marking options

To zoom

Place two fingers on the screen at once and pinch them together (to zoom out) or spread them apart (to zoom in).

When you use two fingers on the screen to zoom, it is only possible to zoom if both fingers are within the zoomable area. If you, for example, want to zoom in on a photo, make sure that both fingers are within the photo frame area.

Scrolling Scroll by moving your finger up or down on the screen. On some web pages you can also scroll to the sides.

Dragging or flicking will not activate anything on the screen.

To scroll

Drag or flick your finger in the direction you want to scroll on the screen.

To flick

To scroll more quickly, flick your finger in the direction you want to go on the screen. You can wait for the scrolling movement to stop by itself, or you can stop it immediately by tapping the screen.

Sensors Your device has sensors that detect both light and proximity. The light sensor detects the ambient light level and adjusts the brightness of the screen accordingly. The proximity sensor turns the touch screen off during voice calls when your ear is close to the screen. This prevents you from unintentionally activating other functions on your device when you are engaged in a call.

Battery

Charging the battery Your battery is partly charged when you buy your device. It may take a few minutes before the battery icon appears on the screen when you connect the charger cable to a power source, such as a USB port or a charger. You can still use your device while it is charging. Charging your device over a long period of time, for example, overnight, does not damage the battery or the device.

To charge your device

1 Plug the charger into a power outlet. 2 Plug one end of the USB cable into the charger (or into the USB port of a

computer). 3 Plug the other end of the cable into the micro USB port on your device, with the

USB symbol facing up. The notification light lights up when charging starts. 4 When the notification light is green, the device is fully charged. Disconnect the

USB cable from your device by pulling it straight outward. Make sure not to bend the connector when removing the cable from the device.

If the battery is completely discharged, it may take a few minutes before the notification light lights up after you connect the charger cable to a power source.

Battery notification light status

Green The battery is fully charged

Flashing red The battery level is low

Orange The battery is charging. The battery level is between low and full

To check the battery level 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > About phone > Status > Battery level.

Improving battery performance The following tips can help you improve battery performance:

Charge your device often. This will not affect the lifetime of the battery. Downloading data from the Internet is power consuming. When you're not using the

Internet, you can save power by disabling all mobile data connections from the Notification panel by dragging down the status bar. This setting does not prevent your device from transmitting data over other wireless networks.

Turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi when you don't need these features. You can turn them on and off more easily from the Notification panel by dragging down the status bar.

Use the STAMINA mode and Low battery mode features to reduce battery consumption. You can select the power saving mode that best suits the way you use your device. You can also customize the settings of each power saving mode.

Set your synchronization applications (used to synchronize your email, calendar, and contacts) to synchronize manually. You can also synchronize automatically, but increase the synchronization intervals.

Check the battery usage menu in your device to see which applications use the most power. Your battery consumes more power when you use video and music streaming applications, such as YouTube. Some applications downloaded from Google Play may also consume more power.

Close and exit applications that you are not using. Lower the screen display brightness level. Turn off your device or activate the Airplane mode setting if you are in an area with no

network coverage. Otherwise, your device repeatedly scans for available networks, and this consumes power.

Use a Sony original handsfree device to listen to music. Handsfree devices demand less battery power than your device's own loudspeakers.

Keep your device in standby mode whenever possible. Standby time refers to the time during which your device is connected to the network and is not being used.

Disable any live wallpaper.

To access the battery usage menu 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > Power management > Battery usage.

Using STAMINA mode Activate the STAMINA mode feature to pause your Wi-Fi connection, data traffic and several power consuming applications when your screen is inactive. When STAMINA

mode is active, you can still receive phone calls, and text and multimedia messages. You can also set up an applications list to allow some applications to keep running when your screen is inactive. Once the screen becomes active again, all paused functions are resumed.

To change the settings for STAMINA mode 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > Power management. 3 To open the settings menu, tap STAMINA mode. 4 Add or remove applications, as desired. 5 When you're finished, tap Done.

Estimating the standby time of your device Standby time refers to the amount of time the battery can last when your device is connected to the network but is not in active use, for example, to receive or make phone calls. STAMINA mode, when activated, continuously evaluates the remaining standby time, which can vary depending on how you use your device. STAMINA mode is more effective in lengthening the standby time if you keep the screen of your device locked. If you rarely lock the screen, you may not see much improvement in battery performance.

When you use your device for the first time, the estimated standby time may not be accurate since there is no previous usage history to estimate from.

To view the estimated standby time 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > Power management.

Using Low battery mode You can activate the Low battery mode feature to save power when the battery level is low. This feature helps you to adjust the settings for screen brightness, data traffic and the vibrate function so that you can reduce battery consumption.

To activate Low battery mode 1 Drag the status bar downwards, then tap . 2 Find and tap Power management. 3 Drag the slider beside Low battery mode to the right.

To deactivate Low battery mode 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > Power management. 3 Tap next to Low battery mode.

To change the settings for Low battery mode 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Find and tap Settings > Power management. 3 To open the settings menu, tap Low battery mode. 4 Adjust the settings as desired. 5 When you're finished, tap .

Maps and locations About location services Use your device to find out where you are. There are two methods: GPS and wireless networks. Enable the wireless networks option if you only need your approximate location, and want it fast. If you want a more exact position, and have a clear view of the sky, enable the GPS option. In situations where the wireless network connection is weak, you should enable both options to ensure that your location is found.

Using GPS Your device has a global positioning system (GPS) receiver that uses satellite signals to calculate your location.

When you use features that require the GPS receiver to find your location, make sure you have a clear view of the sky.

To enable GPS 1 From your Home screen, tap . 2 Tap Settings > Location services. 3 Mark the GPS satellites checkbox.

Getting the best performance The first time you use the GPS it can take 5 to 10 minutes for your location to be found. To help the search, make sure you have a clear view of the sky. Stand still and don't cover the GPS antenna (the highlighted area in the image). The GPS signals can pass through clouds and plastic, but not through most solid objects such as buildings and mountains. If your location isn't found after a few minutes, move to another location.

Google Maps Track your current location, view real-time traffic situations and receive detailed directions to your destination. Before taking trips, you can download and save maps to your memory card to avoid high roaming costs.
