    So the other day my N9 died (like battery completely drained) and when i plugged it in and press and released the power button, instead of seeing a battery symbol there was a bright white light that flashed three times on the lower bezel in the middle? then after a few minutes when i pressed the power button i saw the standard battery symbol. Any clues why that light is there??

    If the battery is completely drained (you can't being it to zero - charging a totally discharged lithium cell can result in an explosion, so if you could discharge it far enough, there's a safety "fuse" that blows and disconnects the battery from the world - permanently), there's no guarantee what the hardware will do, because it's probably between on and off states all over the place - so it could be anything. It's why we turn electronic devices off the way they were designed to be turned off - there's no way to tell what will happen if you suddenly shut the power off. (In most cases - do that to a mainframe computer and you have a few million dollars of junk.) Pulling the battery in a cellphone is a measure of desperation, but it's still not as bad as letting the power slowly drop to nothing. (At about 3 volts, the phone isn't working - but it's not off - so it can be turning lights on and off at random, writing all over storage ... anything physically possible. Try to charge when the battery gets down to about 40% minimum for maximum battery life.)
