How to Check and Display Battery Percentage

Follow these steps to display the remaining battery percentage on your device:

Step 1 – Go to Settings > Battery

Step 2 – Enable the option “Battery percentage”

Step 3 – This is it! Your remaining battery percentage will be displayed now at in the status bar — right next to the WiFi and battery icons.

This was easy, right? There is a lot you can change around in Android. And most of these options are hidden deep inside the Developer options or in other settings.
