  4. Tap Hardware Tests
  5. Tap the hardware to be tested

Additional Notes

Please remove any screen protector from the phone before performing the test as that can skew the results.

If the hardware tests failed, please take a screenshot of the Hardware Test page and open a Help Ticket providing the screenshot for reference. If you already have a ticket open, attach the screenshot to your existing ticket.
