    The "N" - like symbol I believe is NFC. The eye or meter like shape I am not sure of.

    You can try airpush to see if it can identify it:

    If you drag down the notifications screen, maybe you can hold it to see the app info. It can tell you what it is.

    The 'eye' is Smart Stay, you can toggle that on/off in the notification shade.

    As mentioned above, it's the NFC (Near Field Communication) icon. The NFC chip in your phone allows you to transfer certain kinds of data to another device with NFC by simply holding it close (this is the technology used for paying for something by simply tapping your phone up against a payment device). It doesn't make sense that NFC would interefere with you logging on to Google. You can turn off NFC by going to Settings>Wireless & Networks​, and unchecking the NFC box.
