How To Change Languages On Essential PH1


The Essential PH1 has many languages that you just can use that makes it highly usable anyplace round the globe. If for a few reasons the Essential PH1 smartphone you're using has a default language that you don’t understand too well, you'll be able to simply change it to something you can understand.

There are several languages supported on Essential PH1 including German, Korean among several others. Any language change also affects other applications, settings and third party apps as well.
