I seem to have run into a bit of a challenge on one of our Android/Samsung devices...

On the device, regardless of what's open, when the battery reaches 25% on discharge, the below screen pops up and covers the entire screen, with MUCH difficulty to get rid of. I've tried to trace it to a certain app, but was unsuccessful in doing so.

Android Popup

Can someone perhaps help with some advice on this, on how to get rid of it?

  • I just got this out of the blue as well, I had to soft reset to get rid of the popup. I can't trace it back to any setting. – Jonathan May 14 '17 at 9:02

This is caused by the Peel Remote app. I deleted this app and it stopped.

    Can confirm that this works. My popup is no more! – MADodds May 14 '17 at 3:38
  • Confirmed again, S5. The popup is no longer a problem. Can't believe Peel shows system-like notifications. It is also against the developer policies, no app can show system-like notifications. – user174673 Jun 26 '17 at 19:55
  • I started thinking it was an actual system popup. It cannot be dismissed and often pops up every 2%. It is draining my battery telling me to save battery power :/ This has been reproduced on 2 samsung devices (S5 and S6 Edge), peel was the cause both times – user174673 Jun 26 '17 at 20:07
  • I did visited the Settings => Device => Sounds and notifications => App Notifications => Peel Remote Over there, I unchecked the Block. It now does not shows the notifications as shown in the image above. Hence it resolved issue on my phone by keeping the application intact. [No need to uninstall/disable the app] – Nisarg Shah Jul 20 '17 at 6:35

This looks to be a default setting popup which shows when your battery level reaches to a preset value of 25%. You can change these in Settings->Battery->BatterySaver option where you can either set the level to show the popup at 15% or 10% or you can turn it off by setting the turn on automatically option to NEVER.


My only fix is to plug my phone in... It instantly goes away at that point. Though I'd rather it not happen in the first place. It's very intrusive.
