Status Icons
The status icons indicate the status of the phone. Network status icons turn green if you have a Google Account added to your phone and the phone is connected to Google services, for syncing your Gmail, Calendar events, contacts, for backing up your settings etc. The network icons turn white if you don’t have a Google Account or you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network that is not connected to the Internet.
