Setting up HTC U11 life for the first time

When you switch on HTC U11 life for the first time—or after you've done a factory reset—you’ll need to set it up.
Important: Before you do the setup, first back up your old phone using Android Backup Service if you want to restore your apps and settings to HTC U11 life. To find out how to do the backup, see Using Android Backup Service.
  1. If you need to navigate by voice feedback, turn on TalkBack by pressing and holding two fingers on the first screen until you hear a message and then a beep.

    Or if you accidentally enabled TalkBack, follow the onscreen tutorial to turn it off.

  2. Choose the system language you want to use, read and agree to the terms of use, choose your Internet connection, and sign in to your Google® Account.
  3. On the screen that asks you which device to restore from, do one of the following:
    • If you backed up your old phone using Android Backup Service, tap the phone name. Tap to select the apps to install, and then tap Restore.
    • If you want to start fresh, tap Don't restore.
  4. Sign in to your HTC Account to use the same login credentials for HTC services such as Themes and HTC Sense Companion.
  5. Set up Edge Sense so you can instantly take camera shots or perform other actions by simply squeezing your phone. See What is Edge Sense? for details.
  6. Tap Set up fingerprint to add your fingerprint and use it for unlocking your phone. See Fingerprint scanner for details.
  7. Follow the remaining instructions to finish your phone setup.
If you have content such as media files and data that you need to transfer from an old phone, see Ways of transferring content from your previous phone.
