    Welcome to the forums. Do you have a third party flashlight app installed in your phone? If so, uninstall it (after clearing data for the app) and see if that icon still shows up.

    If I recall correctly I think this icon comes from an app called Beacon flashlight.

    Oops, spoke too soon maybe. I did uninstall the mentioned app, seemed ok for a while, but just came up!
    I'm uninstalling the only other flashlight app as well, but wondering if I need to do some kind of clean or maintenance afterwards?
    Any ideas?
    Thanks again

    If you are running a stock Samsung Note 5, then I'd recommend the following as your first step...

    Go to SETTINGS >> DEVICE MAINTANCE >> let the program run, then tap the blue button OPTIMIZE NOW.

    If that doesn't work then you might want to go through the Clear Cache procedures.
