    It could be a push notification from an app you installed.

    It was stated in a video I watched that the star represents notifications that have been suspended due to "do not disturb" new features in Lollipop

    It is to indicate if you set "priority notifications" in the do not disturb mode. You can access this menu when you press the volume button.

    Thanks. You are right. It is a part of "do not disturb" mode.

    I thought it is may be malware.

    Thanks

    Hey everyone it's just the notification setting you have to press volume key and change from priority to all, star means you only are set to receive priority notification only

    Wow. That is less than intuitive. Seems to me that Google should include a line when the Notifications are pulled down, showing the available options.

    Another useless feature that took me days to figure out what was going on, as with the priority thing on, I was getting calls, yet the phone wasn't ringing, so, I kept missing the calls until I turned the phone on and saw a bunch of voice mail notices!! My phone was no more than two feet away from me, but unless I happened to be looking at it when a call was coming in, I'd keep missing them!!! What kind of improvement is that feature supposed to be??? Just more unneeded stress and aggravation every time they go and release updates with a bunch of new, but not necessarily better, or wanted features. Sure glad I finally got that fool thing figured out.

    Cheers,

    Yeah it took them several major Android releases to finally include quick toggles (wifi/3g etc.) in notofication drawer. But crappy features no one uses, you got it.

    It's same as Microsoft does to Windows.

    I have to disagree.

    I love the priority setting for notifications. If I am in class, I don't want the phone to ring. I have the setting set to only ring if it is one of my favorited contacts. It ties into my calendar too, so if I have a meeting or a class scheduled it will automatically turn to priority notifications for the duration of the meeting. It does take some configuring and that is not explained anywhere but once you have it set up it is very useful.

    I agree. My mother came up yesterday saying that my fathers phone was not ringing. We all have Nexus's 5's. It just showed a star icon and the phone would not ring but unless you looked at the screen it would show a call coming in. I had to go into the confusing notification buy hitting the volume and going though a few clicks to get it back on again. My mother and father could have never figured it out as they are not tech savvy.

    The STAR icon is a PRIORITY icon. When you have the volume controls set for PRIORITY, it comes up. I just got a system update and hit priority. The star came up.
