1 Actual available capacity of user storage and internal memory is less because the operating system, software, and other functions utilise part of this capacity. The available capacity may change with software updates.

2 Actual usable capacity will be less due to formatting and operating system. MicroSD card sold separately. It may not be possible to move content with DRM restrictions to the card.

3 Battery must be substantially depleted; charging rate slows as charging progresses. All battery life claims are approximate and based on a mixed use profile (which includes both usage and standby time) under optimal network conditions. Actual battery performance will vary and depends on many factors including signal strength, network configuration, age of battery, operating temperature, features selected, device settings, and voice, data, and other application usage patterns.

4 Advanced nano-coating technology creates a water repellent barrier to help protect against moderate exposure to water such as accidental spills, splashes, or light rain. Not designed to be submerged in water, or exposed to pressurised water, or other liquids; not waterproof.

5 Certain features, functionality, and product specifications may be network dependent and subject to additional terms, conditions, and charges. All are subject to change without notice.

6 Wired headphones are required for use.
