    Default What is the small circle with a number inside?

    Hi All,
    I googled around for a while without finding a solution.
    Since I updated my nexus 5 to 4.4.4, in the notification are I have a small circle with a number inside. Sometimes it is 5, other times is 71 or 94 (see the picture attached).

    What is that? How can I configure it or hide?

    thank you in advance

    Welcome to Android Central! It looks like a battery icon from some battery app you installed. Do you have Battery Widget Reborn?

    Do you have a battery saver installed? Most likely its that. Check the settings in that app to remove notifications

    I spent a week in Bologna last March. It is a wonderful city!

    most probably is something related to the battery but I can't find the app and it appears auto-magically once android 4.4.4 installed on the phone

    Does it ever say 0, i.e., zero?

    I can't believe this is an actual question 😂

    I suddenly see your point.🐢!
    But I did have something that sometimes said 0, I can't remember what it was, some data download speed app or something, long long ago, and I wondered whether it was something like that.

    Do you have Power Toggles installed? Power Toggles has a similar battery icon. Or could it be related to that weather widget you have on your homescreen?

    I had a battery management app that showed the percentage left in the little circle but I don't think it would show a "5". When I have messages waiting the number show in a circle, I think. And, I have a weather app that shows the current temperature in a circle.

    If I drag my finger down the home screen I see what apps are running. That might help.
