Triangle icon at the top of my Samsung

After the most recent update, my phone is slower and there is a triangle icon at the top of my phone. There is something inside the triangle, but it is too small for me to read. What does the icon mean? Why is my phone slower now?

Hi @jddelpho,

Great question! After a software update there are always a few changes on your device I would like to help provide information on what the notification means.

From what I have researched this notification is from a Data Saver feature. Data saver helps cut down your data usage by preventing some apps from sending or receiving data in the background.

You can turn it off from settings. Settings > Connections > Data usage > Data saver.

Our Device Support Tool is also a great resource to use when trying to view any updates and new features on your device.
