    No. Not that I'm aware of. At least not up in the notification bar at the top. You'd have to root and get a ROM with it or just get an app like I did. I liked it better when I had a ROM on my Nexus that replaced the battery icon with a %, but no go so far on this phone.

    No need to root. Use power toggles. It will allow you to place a battery percentage in the notification bar. Also allows you to customize toggles in the notification pulldown.

    Sure. You don't have to root. I was just referring to something that sort of "came with" the OS since he asked if it came with the JB update. I liked the one with my GNex rom that replaced the battery icon. Power Toggles looks like a nice option. I've been using Battery Notifier Pro.

    Oh OK I see. As for a native %age. Nowhere to be found. There's only one ROM available right now. Which is a stock ROM. No percentage there. Obviously if I'm using the toggles app

    It kills me that there isn't any development for this device. Its my only single gripe. I can't complain about ANYTHING else.

    I thought I saw JB running in the Nexus 4 stock with the percentage, maybe I was wrong...sucks, not sure why they don't add it.

    Again, no percentage. Battery meter is in fact worse looking than in ICS.

    That widget is called Circles and its still in JB. Works as it always did except you can't select desk clock mode from in it anymore. But, there is a seperate clock app for that now.

    Our circle apps on our Razr Maxx HD's have NOT changed since updating to Jelly Bean this evening. They still show the percentage and the colored circle around it in the far right circle like they always have. I hope that helps.

    Yep! Lovin' it. I never used the circles before..used nova launcher and a battery app. Circles was updated and more accurate so I've been using this the past week and liking it so far.

    I would love to use Circles but I noticed a 20% extra battery drain. Is there any hidden way to change the weather update schedule to prevent this?

    Even with the circles widget in JB the battery percent indicator is only available on the homescreen that the circles is on. I use the app "Battery Notifier Pro" which puts the battery percent indicator in the notification bar at the top. This way I can see the battery percentage on any screen I'm viewing at the time. Battery notifier pro also monitors phone temperature, battery voltage out to 3 decimal points. Also have the battery percentage in various colors of your choosing, also you can have sound alerts.

    I'm now just patiently waiting for the release of my next smartphone (after my current Maxx HD) sometime in the Summer of 2014.

    Power toggle question. How did you get two rows of controls in your notifications area?

    This is not an option on this phone with 4.1.1...are you using a Samsung device, I think they have the option.

    I agree, it is def a touchwiz feature. This phone is 99% vanilla so I really didn't expect us to get the option. It is the only feature missing for me that would make this phone the best ever...yes, something this small.
