Samsung Galaxy Symbol Triangle with Vertical Arrows - Meaning

On your Samsung Galaxy, different icons can be displayed in the status bar, which can be assigned to an appropriate function or notification.

If you now switch to a new Samsung Galaxy or if a firmware update is rolled out for it, you may see a new icon in the status bar that you have not yet known.

This symbol consists of a triangle with arrows in the middle and it looks like the familiar recycling symbol.

But what does this symbol mean on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone? That's what we'd like to explain to you here.

Meaning of the triangle icon incl. arrows in the notification bar

If you see this symbol, it means that the data saving mode is activated.

The background of this function is that it should help you to save traffic in the mobile data network. If the function is activated, the triangle symbol appears in the status bar of the Samsung Galaxy smartphone. And so you can deactivate "data saving" in Android again:

1. Opens the App menu and then the settings

2. Taps on "Connections" and then on "Data usage

3. Here you will find "Save data" - Select the entry and deactivate the option with the Master control.

The triangle symbol will immediately disappear in a circle from the status bar of your Samsung Galaxy S9.

You now know what the triangle symbol with the arrows in it means and how to deactivate it on your Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
