  1. The actual available internal phone storage may differ depending on the software configuration of your phone.
  2. Battery times (talk time, standby time, and more) are subject to network and phone usage.
  3. A Standby time specification ("specification") is an industry standard that is only intended to allow comparison of different mobile phones under the same circumstances. Power consumption in a standby state is strongly dependent on factors including but not limited to network, settings, location, movement, signal strength and cell traffic . Comparisons of different mobile phones using such a specification can therefore only be done in a controlled laboratory environment. When using any mobile phone in real life circumstances for which the mobile phone is intended, the standby time could be considerably lower and will be strongly dependent on the factors as mentioned above.
  4. Network bands in regions other than Europe and Asia Pacific may be different, depending on the mobile operator and your location. Please check with your mobile operator.
  5. Actual data speed is dependent on the network or Wi-Fi® signal strength.

Note: Specifications are subject to change without prior notice.
