Show Battery Percentage on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus

Ever wondered how to keep track of your battery life on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus? It’s actually quite simple! Here’s how I do it:

First, I tap on the “Settings” icon. Then, I scroll down and tap on “Battery.” This takes me to the battery settings page.

On this page, I look for the option that says “Battery Percentage.” It’s usually located near the bottom. I make sure the switch next to it is turned on. This way, the battery percentage will be displayed on my screen.

Now, whenever I want to know how much battery life I have left, all I have to do is look at the top of my screen. Right next to the battery icon, the percentage will be shown. It’s so convenient!

Having the battery percentage displayed is really helpful, especially when I’m trying to manage my usage throughout the day. It allows me to see at a glance how much power I have left and if I need to charge my phone soon.

So, there you have it! It’s easy to show the battery percentage on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus. Just follow these simple steps, and you’ll always be in the know about your battery life.

Battery Percentage Display On Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8 Plus

When it comes to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones, they’re often called phablets because they combine the features of both a phone and a tablet. These devices offer a lot of functionality, but the notifications can become quite overwhelming.

Have you ever noticed that the notifications bar on your Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus is filled with everything except actual notifications? If you find the user interface to be cluttered and filled with unnecessary icons instead of important notifications, then this article has the solution for you.

One of the symbols that you can do without is the battery percentage. Let’s be honest, it’s not difficult to figure out approximately how long your smartphone battery will last, especially since you probably charge it every night. So why waste half of your notifications bar with icons for battery percentage, Bluetooth, alarms, and NFC?

Now, before you argue that there are days when you use your Galaxy S8 more than usual and you want to monitor your battery life closely, let me clarify one thing: when you remove the battery percentage, you can still see the battery icon just like you would if the percentage was displayed.

The color of the battery icon will still adjust as it drains, so you won’t be left clueless about the status of your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus battery. You’re simply eliminating the redundant percentage translation that essentially tells you the same thing as the battery icon, but with numbers.

Here’s how you can turn off the battery percentage display on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus:

  1. First, you can access the Settings app either from the Home screen or the App Drawer.
  2. Scroll down and find the Battery section.
  3. Tap on the Battery section.
  4. Look for the option labeled “Percentage on status bar” which should be located under the “Remaining battery power” category.
  5. Finally, tap on the toggle next to “Percentage on status bar”.

Now, the battery percentage will no longer be displayed on your smartphone.

These instructions apply to all Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus devices, regardless of the running mode, except for the Ultra Power Save Mode where the battery percentage is automatically eliminated. However, if you manually adjust the battery display settings in this mode, the percentage will appear again.

To turn on the battery percentage display on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus:

  1. You will need to access the Settings app once more, either from the Home screen or the App Drawer.
  2. Find the Battery settings and tap on that section which should be towards the bottom of the Settings list.
  3. Look for the Remaining Battery Power feature.
  4. Simply tap on the Percentage On Status Bar toggle.

If the Percentage On Status Bar was previously turned off, you can reactivate it by tapping on it. The same process applies when you want to deactivate it.

Remember, these instructions specifically refer to the battery percentage symbol and the associated numbers. If it doesn’t matter to you whether the battery is at 30% or just 10% because you charge it regardless, then why clutter the notifications area with this less relevant information?

Make room instead to see if Bluetooth is active or if you have an alarm set up. Don’t worry too much about the battery percentage. You can already see a graphical representation of your battery and an indication of the battery level through colors. Do you really need more than that? Now that you know how to hide the battery percentage on your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus, you have the freedom to customize this feature however you want.
