    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Starting your device for the first time

    It is recommended that you charge the battery for at least 30 minutes before starting up your device for the first time. You can still use your device while it is charging, see Charging your device.

    The first time you start your device, a setup guide helps you to configure basic settings, personalise your device and sign in to your accounts, for example a Google™ account.

    When you buy your device, a basic screen swipe lock is already set. This means that you have to swipe left or upwards on the screen to unlock it. You can change the security settings later and add other kinds of screen locks.

    To turn on the device

    Make sure to use a USB Type-C cable (provided) when charging your device. It is recommended to charge the battery for at least 30 minutes before you turn on the device for the first time.

    1. Press and hold down the power key Power on/off icon until the device vibrates.
    2. Enter your SIM card PIN when requested, then tap Text enter icon.
    3. Wait a moment for the device to start.

    Your SIM card PIN is initially supplied by your network operator, but you can change it later from the Settings menu.

    To turn off the device

    1. Press and hold down the power key Power on/off icon until the options menu opens.
    2. In the options menu, tap Power off.

    It may take a while for the device to shut down.
