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.

Smartphone/Easy Target
Smartphones carry more risk than most think of.  Even with a BYOD in place at work it still dosnt protect form data being siphoned off of personal use.  With everything we keep in our phones.  Sure some only have a phone book and little more but that might be all that was needed.
