I have tried: Removing the battery and restarting phone which gets phone started again, but the icon is still lurking so I have to avoid it. I think it was caused by: No idea

You can also just turn the icon off by launching the Peel application from your application list. Then, in "Settings", turn off "Quick Remote Widget".

Also, instead of taking out the battery, you can press and hold the power and volume-down buttons.

Why won't my phone work after doing a factory reset?

I did a factory reset on my Note5, now it will not go past the welcome screen and the only icons that appear are the NFC and battery life. Is there anything I can do to get it back working. I have tried: Power key and volume down to get it to reset again but it will not. I think it was caused by: Phone was working fine until factory reset
