I recently got a Galaxy S5 and I'm new to the android platform so apologies in advance if this is an obvious question.

I've noticed that my phone brings up a prompt during startup (after a full poweroff) stating to check my battery cover. It looks like this:

enter image description here

Does this mean that the phone senses the cover being loose? Or is this just a generic message that comes up every time I boot?

Generic message after reboot. It will show everytime and I think you cannot turn it off.

  • This does not seem likely. Many phones have contacts for detecting the back cover, probably one is bent or something. – Matthew Read Mar 21 '15 at 17:19
  • There is something under cover that looks like this detector, but still it shows up after every reboot. This is probably just a reminder so you will not be sorry later – Łukasz Motyczka Mar 21 '15 at 17:25
