Yes - there is a setting you need to change.
The Notification bar's actions are based on what you have GMail set up to do when swiping away an email within the app.
To change it from Archive:
Open Gmail and go to Settings there change the Swiping conversation list from Archive/unlabel/delete to Always delete
This changed my Notification bar action from ...
They are referring to the mobile data connection:
1x: 1xRTT (slow like a dialup modem (here: 80–100 kbit/s), shows up on US Cellular CDMA networks with Google Fi in Northern California)
G: GPRS (slow like dialup modem, here: 56–114 kbit/s)
E: Edge (enhanced GSM, about 400 kbit/s)
3G: UMTS (384 kbit/s to 7.2 Mbit/s)
H: HSPA (enhanced 3G, sometimes shown as 3....
This is possible on Android, at least on Lollipop. The feature is dependent on the Bluetooth headset sending the battery level in the right format.
If the headset supports it, you will see an option in the settings screen for the Bluetooth device. The option will be right above the checkboxes for Call and Media audio. If you don't see this option then the ...
Compared to Nexus 5, Lollipop stock launcher on Nexus 4 doesn't have transparency on the notification bar.
Instead, the one with transparency is Google Now Launcher (originally known as Google Experience Launcher). After installing the launcher, you can switch between those two from Settings > Home.

These behaviors can be controlled when an app builds a notification.
From my understanding, if an app wants to run continuously, it MUST put a persistent notification on the notification bar
You're pretty much correct until the "notification bar" part. Both of notifications are indeed persistent (i.e. on-going, cannot be removed manually by user). Take ...
Disabling a notification for particular app wont' save battery. Yes it would a little by not ringing and vibrating and also by not making you look at the phone.
Actually notification is handled by OS itself. An app just says that I want this notification to be displayed and OS handles it. In your case those apps are running in background using service and ...
By default the answer is a no.
Since changing the color of notification bar means modifying the system it can't be done by a normal application. Best you can do is an icon that can be added to the notification bar.
But there is a way if you are rooted.
Xposed Framework is a great app that lets users modify every single action executed at system level. You ...
VoLTE means Voice over LTE. The icon notifies you that you are now able to phone over LTE. This means, it's not necessary in order to make a phone call to switch back to 3G (You cannot phone over normal LTE).
In short it's new and better. As far as I can tell you could disable VoLTE altogether, but I recommend you to simply live with it.
Airpush! A bloody nuisance they are.
Need to figure out which app did you install recently, that is the culprit. Uninstall it, let the developer know that airpush is disastrous and let them see their downloads drop!
If your handset is rooted, you might try Ad-Away to block those pesky adverts. And its open-source and available on Google Play.
In 4.2.x Jelly Bean you can pinch-zoom or two-finger glide in order to toggle between base and expanded [notification] layouts. Not all notifications can be expanded, however. The next time the notification appears try using two fingers to "pull" the notification down into an expanded layout.
Open GMail, and open its Settings. Click your email@example.com, and make sure Notifications is checked. Then, click Inbox sound & vibrate and click Turn Gmail sync on. Configure the Notifications at the bottom as you like.
In Settings, make sure Sync Gmail is also checked.
With regards to GMail sync frequency, see this question: How to set gmail sync ...
In short, it indicates that for the mobile calls the wifi will be used, if there's a good wifi signal.
I have found it there:
Small phone with Wi-Fi coming from it
This strange new symbol shows your phone’s set up for Wi-Fi calling. It’s a new feature brought in by the UK’s biggest networks to help give you the best call quality. If your phone doesn’...
That's DND (Do Not Disturb)
DND is a feature which after enabling you aren’t disturbed by
notifications or other forms of incoming communication. Do Not
Disturb(DND) can be set automatically or manually based on a few
parameters that you control.
One way to disable DND is to drag down your Notification Panel and select DND from the different ...
If you're thinking about installing it, I'd recommend you to use Widgetsoid. It can sit on homescreen and as notification (like in image). And, it provides a lot of toggles which -- I bet -- no other app provides.
These toggles aren't part of Android. Third party ROMs like CyanogenMod and MIUI, and certain skins that Hardware manufacturers put on Android include that.
If you want to have this functionality on a Nexus running stock Android you might want to try these two applications, I have used them both, and they are quite stable and useful.
Power Toggles :
There are a lot of toggle switches available. Some even come pre-installed -- just check it out:
go to your homescreen
long-press on an empty space
select to add a widget
scroll through the list of available widgets
select the one you want to use
Usually, there are a lot of separate widgets to toggle either Wifi, GPS, ... -- but also a "power-widget" (or "...
Swiping down on the left side of the screen should bring down the notification window shade and swiping down on the right side of the screen should bring down the new "quick settings" window shade which has the settings icon and some other handy settings easily available. As far as the screen adjusting, this is known as auto-rotate and can be changed in the ...
No, you're not missing a setting. This particular decision seems very unfortunate, and a ticket opened with google to resolve this has already some support : Google code ticket.
We can only hope that this will be reverted to the previous behaviour (allowed only when the lockscreen had no pin/password/gesture) or made into a setting.
You can filter messages based on sender, recipient, subject and other criteria from within the Web app. This is not possible from within the Android app.
In a web browser, Goto [Settings] -> [Filters] of Gmail. Click on [Create new filter].
Create a filter to match your newsletters.
Assign a label to them (create one if you don't have one yet). Make sure ...
Gmail > Settings > select account with labels > Manage Labels > Select each label and uncheck "label notifications" that way the only notification you get is when it gets to the inbox, not a double notification for inbox AND the label
I have just had the same question answered on another forum: Its a notification from Greenify: opening Greenify showed that auto-hibernation was not currently working. Greenify need to ensure that a notification is linked to the appearnace of the icon.
If you do not have Greenify installed then the mystery deepens...
Long press the volume down and power buttons at same time to capture a screenshot anywhere instead of using power menu selection. Android collapses the status bar as soon as you open power menu, so that will not work.
And use Google Goggles for Chinese translation.
