Some people may be susceptible to epileptic seizures or blackouts when exposed to
flashing lights, such as when playing videos or games. These may occur even if a person
has never had a previous seizure or blackout.
If you have experienced seizures or blackouts, or if you have a family history of such
occurrences, please consult with your physician before playing videos or games or
enabling a flashing-lights feature (if available) on your mobile device.
Discontinue use and consult a physician if any of the following symptoms occur:
convulsion, eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary movements, or
disorientation. It is always a good idea to hold the screen away from your eyes, leave the
lights on in the room, take a 15-minute break every hour, and stop use if you are tired.
Caution About High Volume Usage
Warning: Exposure to loud noise from any source for extended periods of time may affect
your hearing. The louder the volume sound level, the less time is required before your
hearing could be affected. To protect your hearing:
• Limit the amount of time you use headsets or headphones at high volume.
• Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
• Turn the volume down if you can't hear people speaking near you.
If you experience hearing discomfort, including the sensation of pressure or fullness in your
ears, ringing in your ears, or muffled speech, you should stop listening to the device
through your headset or headphones and have your hearing checked.

When you repetitively perform actions such as pressing keys or entering finger-written
characters, you may experience occasional discomfort in your hands, arms, shoulders,
neck, or other parts of your body. If you continue to have discomfort during or after such
use, stop use and see a physician.
Keep your mobile device and its accessories away from small children. These
products are not toys and may be hazardous to small children. For example:
• A choking hazard may exist for small, detachable parts.
• Improper use could result in loud sounds, possibly causing hearing injury.
• Improperly handled batteries could overheat and cause a burn.
Similar to a computer, if a child does use your mobile device, you may want to monitor their
access to help prevent exposure to inappropriate apps or content.
Some parts of your mobile device may be made of glass. This glass could break if the
product receives a substantial impact. If glass breaks, do not touch or attempt to remove.
Stop using your mobile device until the glass is replaced by a qualified service center.
Obey all posted signs when using mobile devices in public areas.
