Normally these problems are indicative of technical issues but not always the case.
6. Unknowing text & mail messages
Hacked phones often get Unknowing messages in the form of links & codes generated by either hacker or by third party.

How to protect your Smartphone from getting Hacked
1.Use an Antivirus app
Although Apps like Avast, Avg, McAfe are free antivirus apps on play store which do protect your Smartphone.But, i personally recommend you spend some little amount & buy paid antivirus software like Norton or Kaspersky.
2.Never use unknown WI-FIs
Generally we try to look for free wifi connect & hackers do often target important locations such as bank accounts via public Wi-Fi that can often be unsecured.So,better not to look for unknown Wi-Fi.
3.Protect your PIN & Credit Card data
Use a protected app to store PIN Numbers, Credit Cards & important document files or better don't store them in your phone at all.
4.Never leave  your phone unattended
Never leave your Smartphone unattended in public place & never give your Smartphone to anyone in public for purpose like Calling or any other stuff.
5.Change your phone's default 
People likely Choose simple & predictable (1234, 0000, 1-9) default passwords and those who know can take advantage of it.Better Change your password to something more complex then rest of the people.

Hackers are not going away anytime soon. Their motivation is always there to obtain financial gains, exploitation, sexual exploitation & may be something else. So,it is everyone's responsibility to be aware of these threats.
