How To Enable Battery Percentage On Galaxy A50

The Galaxy A50 has a huge 4,000 mAh battery but if you’re a power user, such a battery won’t last a day. For some people, it’s important that they know how much battery is left on their devices. That’s why it’s better that you know how to enable battery percentage on your device. It’s because the battery icon on the status bar doesn’t actually tell you accurately how long your phone’s gonna last.

So, in this post, I will show you a couple of ways to enable or disable the battery percentage on the status bar of your Galaxy A50.

How To Display Battery Percentage On Status Bar

Time Needed : 2 minutes

There are two ways to enable the battery percentage. The first one is the shortcut and the other one is by going through the settings menu. Here’s how: 

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to pull the notification shade down.

  2. Find Notification settings and tap on it. 

    This will bring you to the screen where you can change how the notification shade or the status bar works.

    Immediately after doing this, the battery percentage will be displayed on the status bar just beside the battery icon.

Basically, it’s the same procedure but we just want to show you how it’s done just in case you’re gonna need it. 

At this point, we want to answer some of the questions users asked us about the battery percentage.

Why is it under Notification settings when it should be under Battery in Device care?

That’s exactly what I was thinking when I first found out about it. But the most logical explanation is that the battery icon is on the status bar. The status bar should be under the Notifications settings since it’s where the notifications appear, and you will actually swipe down from the status bar to pull the notification shade.

How is this feature even helpful?

It is for some, especially the ones who are always mobile. You can actually estimate easily how long your phone’s gonna last if you already know how many percent of the battery is left. So, if you want to conserve battery, you can turn off some features or enable the power saving mode. But frankly, this feature is not really useful to people who can charge their devices whenever they want.

Will this make my phone last longer?

No. This feature alone cannot make your phone last longer. However, as I said in the previous question, you can do what’s necessary to conserve battery if you know how many percent of the battery is left.

And that’s all for now, guys!
