tl;dr version
For those of us that still think articles can be written in full on a single page, rather than having to click through multiple pages, here's the tl;dr version:

1. Sudden Loss of Battery Life
2. Excessive App Permissions
3. Your Account Is Sending Messages, But You Aren't
4. Suspicious Texts and Unknown Websites
5. Spike in Data Usage
6. Key Passwords No Longer Work
7. Not All Attackers Leave a Trace (Use a private VPN)
8. Don't reuse passwords, use antimalware/antivirus apps, keep apps up to date, etc.
