Why is my battery icon white?

The first month that I had my Galaxy S4 the battery icon was green, now it's white and never returns to green, is something wrong with my battery?


Your phone's Android 4.4 Kit Kat update changed the icon colors from green to white. Nothing is wrong with your phone or your battery; this is just a result of updating your software.

My Samsung Galaxy S4 battery symbol is white while charging -- why?

I just replaced my battery about a week ago with a brand new one .


A white battery symbol only indicates that your phone is now running Android 4.4 Kitkat; neither your phone nor your battery are damaged or defective.

Why won't my battery charge, why is the message of battery temperature too low appearing?

I recently got my screen replaced and the following day when I tried to charge my battery it says system has paused and the battery temperature is low, how can I fix this problem?

Is my Galaxy S4 supposed to have a red light on when charging?

Is it normal for the red light to be on when my phone is charging?

According to the Samsung portal website, your Galaxy S4 will glow red while charging. Here are all the circumstances in which you'll see a red light on your S4, taken from here.

  • Glows red when the device is connected to a charger and is charging.
  • Blinks red when the device is connected to a charger but there is a problem with charging.
  • Blinks red when the battery is low.

The above questions are from the following wiki...

My S4 charges, but all the indicators say it is not charging?

Battery indicator is always grey when powered-off and charging (no green shows). When powered-on, there is no lightning bolt. I have no green indicator light when charged. etc.

I turned on the "% charged" monitor so that I could guarantee that the phone was charging when turned on (the white battery indicator seems to work, but it's hard to see it moving).

Thanks in advance for any help.
