User guides for Motorola devices typically contain information regarding troubleshooting, safety and specifications in addition to instructions on how to use the device. Guides also explain how to customize the interface and provide tips regarding battery maintenance and the extension of battery life.
In addition to its length, the type of information provided in a user guide for a Motorola device depends on the device for which the guide is written. For example, the user guide for the Droid Turbo smartphone arranges the information into multiple sections across 69 pages. Initially, it provides a brief overview of the device using a diagram and then proceeds to explain the assembly and setup processes. The following sections explain the content of the home screen, apps and other functionality, including different types of calls and the option to convert speech to text. Almost every section provides various tips and tricks related to the aspect that’s being explained.
User guides are presented in PDF format, letting visitors peruse them within a Web browser or download them directly to their computers. Motorola's official website provides visitors with user guides for their devices in the Get Help section. There, visitors can select a desired category, such as modems, cellphones and tablets, and select a subtype to facilitate the search process. Alternatively, visitors can input the model number or the official name of their device directly in the search field.
