    Is there a way to get the battery percentage to display as a stand alone icon in the status bar rather than as a number inside the battery icon?

    Whenever I enable the option to show the percentage it shows up inside the battery icon which is harder to see. I thought the default behavior of Pie was to show it as a separate number.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, the only option within the Battery settings just turns on and off the percentage within the battery icon.

    that would be great. From what I can gather It seems that options normal behavior on Android Pie is to turn on and off the percentage as a separate icon on the taskbar.

    hmmmm, interesting. Thank you for checking that out. I figured with the Android One phones it would be completely stock for the most part.

    This battery percentage issue has been bugging me since I got the phone six months ago. There's no way round the problem I'm afraid.

    When you pull down from the top the percentage shows next to the battery I on on my phone.

    Yes it does, but you can't get it to stay there. When it's set to show inside the battery icon, you just can't read it. Stupid idea.

    On the BlackBerry 10 and Blackberry Android phones you could just swipe up on the home screen and the battery percentage would appear at the top of the screen but would not stay either.

    Look at it this way. At least on the Nokia 7.1 you can still see the percentage inside the battery icon.

    What is that without having a notification light if I turn off the phone to charge it, I have no idea when it's full because there is no extra display unless you gently press the power button, only then will you see where you're at in terms of the charge.

    Regarding keeping an eye on the battery charge level while charging, you can monitor the charge level if you have the ambient display set to always be on during charging.

    I just also noticed that the battery status (percentage) also shows up at the bottom of the locked screen as well...๐Ÿ˜•
