  1. Battery has limited recharge cycles and battery capacity reduces over time. Eventually the battery may need to be replaced.
  2. The 3-day battery testing was conducted using a real life usage test by HMD Global. The test included active usage of a device for 5 hours per day with a new battery. Usage included e.g. gaming, video streaming, calling, sending sms, browsing and using apps (such as social media, news, navigation and music). The test was conducted with normal device settings in a lit indoor environment. The device was left on standby overnight.

  3. Battery has been tested by HMD Global to maintain at least 80% of its original capacity after 800 full charging cycles.
  4. Pre-installed system software and apps use a significant part of memory space.
