To clean your phone, here are a few guidelines to follow.

  • Before cleaning, power down your Galaxy smartphone, remove any case or cover and unplug any cables or accessories.

  • Use a soft, lint-free, microfibre cloth such as a camera lens cleaning cloth to gently wipe the exterior surface of the phone.

  • Avoid getting moisture in any opening and do not apply liquid solutions directly to your phone. If necessary, dampen the corner of your cloth with a small amount of distilled water or disinfectant, such as a hypochlorous acid–based (50-80 ppm) or alcohol-based (more than 70% ethanol or isopropyl alcohol) product, and gently wipe the front and back of your phone without applying too much pressure. Avoid excessive wiping.
  • Do not use compressed air, and do not apply or spray bleaches or liquid solutions directly on your phone.

  • Consider using "lens and screen cleaning wipes" which are moistened, scratch-free, ammonia-free, and quick drying.

  • This cleaning recommendation is only intended for the glass, ceramic, and metal surfaces of your phone; it is not recommended for soft accessories, i.e. those that are made of leather, rubber, or plastic.
