How to show battery percentage on Galaxy Note10 and Note10+

Whether you are new to Android or with Samsung Galaxy Note series in particular, you may notice that the default battery indicator does not actually show the numerical indicator of remaining power. By default, the Samsung UI that comes with your device only displays the battery icon so there’s no way for you to give you a more accurate information how much exactly is the remaining battery percentage. The good thing is, it’s easy to show the battery percentage on your Galaxy Note10 and Note10+. You just need to change a setting to accomplish this. Here’s how:

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap Notifications.
  3. Tap Status bar.
  4. For Show battery percentage, just move the slider to the right. 
  5. Return to the home page.
  6. That’s it!
