I have a Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro running Android 7.1.1, and Samsung Experience version 8.5.

How do I get the battery percentage into the status bar? I am sure it was there until yesterday (unless I am going crazy) and now it has disappeared. Yes I have tried turning it off and on :)


OK, I found it myself when I had time to read through all the Settings in the manual:

  1. tap "Settings"

  2. tap "Display"

  3. tap "Status Bar"

  4. turn on "Show battery percentage"


Step 1: Tap on the Settings from the Home Screen.

Step 2: Select Smart manager

Step 3: Select Battery

Step 4: Now, you should see the option that can help you show the battery percentage.

Step 4: Turn Battery Percentage on.

  • Thanks, but there is no Battery icon under Settings. Battery does appear under Settings -> Device Maintenance, but that has no "Show Battery Percentage" option. – Peter B Jan 31 '20 at 1:47
  • Haha...funny how even the same android versions have different locations. Try the edited version. It should be in smart manager. – Natsu Kage Jan 31 '20 at 2:07
  • Thank you again, but I had no "Smart Manager" selection either. It was under "Display" then "Status Bar" (see my answer). – Peter B Feb 1 '20 at 4:06
