Showing and hiding the battery percentage in recent Samsung Galaxy devices is a no brainer for those who have been using Android phones for years.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Status Bar Icons

Every Android device is designed to have a dedicated interface element located at the top of the screen. This interface is called the status bar or notification bar. 

The icons showing on the Status bar are basically notifications in the graphical user interface (GUI) format from certain apps running on the phone. 

The default controls found in the Status bar of the latest Samsung Galaxy S22 smartphones and other models with the OneUI 4.1 platform typically consist of the network status icons, Wi-Fi icon, signal bars, and the battery icon.

Some apps do not display the status bar especially if the app interface is in a full-screen scheme. Some of the indicator icons on the status may only appear when the notification panel is launched.

Depending on the device model or service provider, the indicator icons showing on the status bar may vary. But the battery indicator icon is usually present in most if not all devices.

The Android phone status bar icons are customizable, which means that you can remove some of them or add more as you desire.

Depicted below is the actual process of removing and adding the battery percentage indicator icon on the Galaxy S22 status bar or notification bar.

Steps to Show Battery Percentage on Samsung Galaxy S22

These steps are also applicable when hiding and showing the battery percentage on the status bar of the Samsung Galaxy S22+, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and other prior Galaxy models that are running on the same OneUI version.

Actual screens and menu options may vary between device models and wireless carriers so expect some slight variations on the user interface of individual devices.

For as long as your device software is updated, all key features and settings should be present.

Feel free to start whenever you’re all set to configure your Samsung Galaxy S22.
Step 1: To get started, tap the Settings icon from the Home screen or Apps viewer to open the Settings app.
Step 2: While on the Settings menu, find and then tap Notifications.
Step 3: Tap Advanced settings on the succeeding menu to proceed. Another screen will open with more advanced options and relevant features.
Step 4: To display battery percentage along with the battery icon on the status bar of your phone, simply toggle to turn ON the switch next to Show battery percentage.
Step 5: To hide the battery percentage, just turn the Show battery percentage switch OFF. 

Only the battery status indicator will be left shown on the status bar of the phone if you turn the switch OFF.

Alternative Method to Hide/Show battery percentage in OneUI 4.1

You can also check the battery percentage by heading to the Battery menu from the Battery and device care settings.

To do this, simply go to quick Settings menu then go to Battery and device care-> Battery menu and then toggle to turn the Show battery percentage switch OFF to hide battery percentage from the status bar or ON to show it.

The status bar output and layout would still be the same like when adjusting the settings through the Advanced notifications menu.

When to show battery percentage on your phone’s status bar?

One way to keep track of the battery status of your phone is to have a visible number that represents the current amount of battery that’s left on the phone. The displayed number vary depending on the phone’s battery usage.

Through this number, you can estimate how long your phone can last and manage power usage to preserve battery if needed.

Keeping the battery percentage shown on the status bar will also help you detect any unusual power usage on the device. For instance, the first time you check the battery percentage level is 100 percent and after a few minutes of usage it immediately goes down to 20 percent. The significant decrease in the battery percentage apparently denotes the need for you to optimize battery usage by certain apps.

If you find that your phone’s status bar is already congested, you can always remove or hide it. All it requires are a few taps to reach the advanced notification settings where the battery percentage switch is present.

Alternative Tools for Battery optimization

Third-party apps that will help keep track of the battery health status of your Samsung Galaxy S22 are also available on the Play Store.

You can download any of these apps if you need a dedicated tool to diagnose and optimize your phone’s battery. These apps are also programmed to let you view more information about the phone’s storage, screen, resolution and battery.

And that’s how you hide and show the battery percentage in the One UI 4.1 status bar or notification bar on the latest Samsung Galaxy device.
