- Device gets too hot in short time, If you’re not familiar with getting your device too hot And suddenly it started up to get super hot Then you’re probably infected with a malware that’s draining your phone’s memory usage
- Weird sound during phone calls, As the malware is recording/sending your phone calls, You may hear weird sounds during your calls so pay attention to this point.
- Phones Slow down, If the attacker has adjusted the patch not to drain the battery too much so he can avoid the heat issue, Then it’ll come over the price of the slowing down issue so your phone will be slower than usual
