Just suddenly today,   my wifi symbol has become tiny.   Yesterday it was fine.    I haven't had a software update to change anything so don't know how or why this has occurred.

Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

I've looked through settings and can't find anything to do with changing these symbols.

I've also tried rebooting but still the same.

I'm using a Galaxy S7 Edge

Thanks

Although it's for the S8, this guide might help:

On a different handset I have seen a small wifi icon displayed when connected to wifi via a wifi extender rather than the normal icon when connected direct to the access point.

As you're having a possible issue with your WiFi,have you tried rebooting your router? 

WiFi and mobile data are different.

Thanks for the helpful guide.

Turns out I switched on download booster,  which was the cause of the tiny icon.

Thanks all for the help.
