Prevent hearing damage
Lenovo Phone has a headphone connector. Always use the headphone
connector for headphones (also called a headset) or earphones.
Excessive sound pressure from earphones and headphones can cause hearing loss.
Adjustment of the equalizer to maximum increases the earphone and headphone
output voltage and the sound pressure level. Therefore, to protect your hearing,
adjust the equalizer to an appropriate level.
Excessive use of headphones or earphones for a long period of time at
high volume can be dangerous if the output of the headphone or
earphone connectors do not comply with specifications of EN 50332-2.
The headphone output connector of Lenovo Phone complies with EN
50332-2 Sub clause 7. This specification limits Lenovo Phone's maximum
wide band true RMS output voltage to 150 mV. To help protect against
hearing loss, ensure that the headphones or earphones you use also
comply with EN 50332-2 (Clause 7 limits) for a wide band characteristic
voltage of 75 mV. Using headphones that do not comply with EN 50332-2
can be dangerous due to excessive sound pressure levels.
If Lenovo Phone came with headphones or earphones in the package, as
a set, the combination of the headphones or earphones and Lenovo
Phone already complies with the specifications of EN 50332-1. If different
headphones or earphones are used, ensure that they comply with EN
50332-1 (Clause 6.5 Limitation Values). Using headphones that do not
comply with EN 50332-1 can be dangerous due to excessive sound

Specific Absorption Rate information
This phone is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission
limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the United States.
During SAR testing, this device was set to transmit at its highest certified
power level in all tested frequency bands, and placed in positions that
simulate RF exposure in usage against the head with no separation, and
near the body with the separation of 10 mm. Although the SAR is
determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the
device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is
because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as
to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the
closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power
The exposure standard for wireless devices employing a unit of
measurement is known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The
SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg.
This device is complied with SAR for general population /uncontrolled
exposure limits in ANSI/IEEE C95.1-1992, and had been tested in
accordance with the measurement methods and procedures specified in
OET Bulletin 65 Supplement C. This device has been tested, and meets
the FCC RF exposure guidelines when tested with the device directly
contacted to the body.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone
with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF
exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model phone is on file with
the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section of
www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid after searching on FCC ID: YCNA850.
For this device, the highest reported SAR value for usage against the
head is 0.38W/kg, for usage near the body is 1.41W/kg.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various
phones and at various positions, they all meet the government
SAR compliance for body-worn operation is based on a separation
distance of 10 mm between the unit and the human body. Carry this
device at least 10 mm away from your body to ensure RF exposure level
compliant or lower to the reported level. To support body-worn operation,
choose the belt clips or holsters, which do not contain metallic
components, to maintain a separation of 10 mm between this device and
RF exposure compliance with any body-worn accessory, which contains
metal, was not tested and certified, and use such body-worn accessory
should be avoided.
