    what are the icons by default (top left hand side of screen)? What do they mean?

    If your not sure what im talking about i'll give examples. One that I was most curious about was the "suitcase" icon with an arrow pointing down? what does that mean? Also the other day there was a "train on railroad" icon, incidently i was on a train at the time.

    There's probably a simple answer to my question but also does any have like a "key" that I can refer to so I can tell what each icon means/does.

    Thankyou

    Could the Suitcase be a shopping bag, the market will put a notification icon up when there are updates to apps you have installed. Never seen or heard of a train icon though

    Pull down the notification shade and see if anything is listed there.

    Yeah so it must be recent activities that are displayed there, i didnt even know that u go there to check activity. The train one makes sense now, as i have a train app that tells me train times

    Suitcase with an arrow down is you have an update available in the play store. Suitcase with a check mark means something from the play store finished downloading and installing. Train and a track is a new one to be. Probably an app you have downloaded notifying you of something. Since you said you were on a train did you download any kind of train map app or train schedule app? It could be using gps letting you know you're on a certain train or something. A screenshot of that one would help a lot
