Android Icons and Notifications Symbols

When you are a beginner with Android, it’s not easy to guess what all these icons and symbols mean on the top bar (notifications and status bar)! And they are very small. For example, how do you know you got a call on your voicemail? Ok you can scroll down the menu from the top bar with your finger and you’ll be able to see the details.

Okay! but the best would be to have a beautiful chart, right?

So I started looking for a table of all the symbols for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0 +) and I found nothing. Apparently it’s not easy to find. Symbols for Android 4.0 and higher:

But there is no explanation, so you can refer to Android 2.3 Gingerbread symbols as they are almost the same :
