I have a Samsung Galaxy S III running Android 4.0.1 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Is there any meaning to the colour of the LED indicator?

It sometimes lights as red, green or blue. What do each of these colours indicate?

Have you checked around - is it in the manual for that handset - I would imagine, red is battery, green is notification of SMS/emails, blue - wifi? –  t0mm13b Dec 13 '12 at 19:40

Red when plugged in - Charging

Green when plugged in - Charging complete.

Red when not plugged in - Low battery warning

Blue - Audio is recording or you have a notification waiting.
