Android’s status bar can get junky pretty fast, especially if you’re using a non-stock build of Android on your Samsung Galaxy handset. The Status Bar is where you’ll find status icons: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, mobile network, time, alarm and so on and you may not need to see all these icons all the time. The truth is that there are quite a few useless icons on the status bar of your Galaxy S6 device. Due to such icons mostly, even important notifications end up not being visible, so why not taking action and solving the issue?

Therefore, in this guide, I am focusing on how to disable Galaxy S6 NFC to remove its icon from status bar since I think that this is one of the biggest problems. NFC is used for payment or android beam. However, the issue is that it is used seldom. So, the truth is that it generally runs in the background sucking up your phone’s already limited juice battery.

You can remove its icon from status bar of Galaxy S6 by disabling it. And this will never be a problem since you can enable it again whenever you want to use NFC.
