The star on Android Lollipop is called as “interruptions” mode. It can be enabled on Android Lollipop settings on Samsung Galaxy S5. If it is set as “important”, the star symbol will appear on your notification bar of Samsung Galaxy S5. This “important” status is also called as “priority mode”. It means, only calls and notifications that you have considered as important would appear on your status bar.

Go to menu apps->Settings->Sound and Notifications->Interruptions.

  • None
  • Priority
  • All

Select “All”. And it has finished.

Now, the star icon is disappeared and the interrupt mode is disabled on your Galaxy S5.
