5.0.1 - Notification bar icons on Lock Screen?


AC Question

Hey guys, since updating to Lollipop 5.0.1 earlier today (Samsung Galaxy Note 4), I have noticed that the small notification bar icons that previously appeared on the lock screen have been replaced by larger display bars - it seems that I can either set these to display full text from the sms/email/whatsapp etc. (which I am not keen on), or have the bar show "Contents Hidden" (which seems pointless).

Is there any way to remove the bigger notifications and return back to having the small message / email / whatsapp icons on the top bar? Whilst locked (especially at work), I much prefer to click a button and quickly glance down to see which icons are showing at the top of the screen, rather than having a whole host of bars stacked up.

Many thanks in advance, and my apologies if this has already been covered.
