2A. Device Basics


To drag, press and hold your finger with some pressure before you start to move your finger. While dragging,
do not release your finger until you have reached the target position.


Flicking the screen is similar to swiping, except that you need to swipe your finger in light, quick strokes. This
finger gesture is always in a vertical direction, such as when flicking the contacts or message list.


For most screens, you can automatically change the screen orientation from portrait to landscape by turning
the device sideways. When entering text, you can turn the device sideways to bring up a bigger keyboard.
See “Using the Onscreen Keyboard” for more details.


The device screen supports multi-touch. On the Home screen, you can “pinch” the screen using two fingers
(for example, thumb and index fingers) to switch to thumbnail view and see all the Home screens. For some
applications, like Gallery or the browser, pinch the screen to zoom in or zoom out when viewing a picture or
a Web page.
