    It means that your S5 is directly connected to another device via WiFi.

    That might be your laptop, or tablet, or ???

    Wi-Fi Direct allows you to transfer files wirelessly and extremely fast. Each android manufacturer has this built in but implemented differently. Samsungs is the only one that I've found to be easiest to use and no Wi-Fi or data connection is needed.
