List of important messages that may appear on your Samsung Android smartphone and short explanation what they mean

Samsung smartphone info messages

The list with possible warning and info messages on your Samsung smartphone can be quite long, that is why we decided to share few of the important ones:

  1. Insufficient storage: Indicates that the device's storage is running low and may need to be cleared or expanded.
  2. Low battery: A notification that the device's battery is running low and needs to be charged.
  3. Overheating: A message indicating that the device is too hot and needs to cool down.
  4. App not responding: A message indicating that an app has stopped responding and needs to be closed or restarted.
  5. Update available: A notification indicating that a software update is available for the device.
  6. Virus detected: A warning indicating that a virus has been detected on the device and the user should take steps to remove it.
  7. Unauthorized access: A message indicating that someone is attempting to access the device without permission.
  8. SIM card error: A message indicating that the SIM card is not functioning properly and may need to be replaced.
  9. Malicious app detected: A warning indicating that a malicious app has been detected on the device and should be removed.
  10. Authentication failure: A message indicating that the user's login credentials are incorrect or have expired.
  11. Unplug charger immediately(Warning: Unplug charger immediately. We've detected moisture or foreign material in your charging/USB port):  usually when it detects moisture in the charging port.

There are also two SIM-card related Samsung smartphone messages that we also consider important:
  1. Enter SIM card PIN (Android related): This message is asking for the SIM card PIN (Personal Identification Number) for your Android device. 
  2. Use PIN after restart (Android related): Basically all you need to do is enter the PIN number you have previously set and your phone will be unlocked.
If you have noticed a different message, feel free to share it in the comments so we can add it to the list.
