Status bar abuse, Lollipop edition
Why do Android OEMs insist on cluttering the status bar? I don't get it. Here are the big Android makers, all with the exact same things enabled (and on Lollipop). HTC, LG, and Samsung all take up at least half the screen width. HTC also insists on showing the LTE icon all the time. I don't know why. And that NFC icon, barf.
Look at how that all compares to the Nexus UI. Exact same stuff enabled, and it takes up less than half the space of the others. This is stupid.
