    Default Any way to show battery percentage?

    Hey everyone,

    I just got my z10 today (coming from an iPhone 5) and I absolutely love it. My only question is is there any way to show battery percentage at the top instead of just the bar?

    Next update maybe?

    It's a chore but.
    Settings/about/hardware. Scroll down.

    I use "battery charger" app. Shows percentage and battery health plus more. Not ideal buts seems to work good.

    go to settings
    choose "About"
    there is a dropdown menu titled, "category" from that menu choose "hardware"
    There you will see your percentage

    Damn, that sucks that there's no native way to just have it show the percentage at the top of the phone. Oh well, just a minor inconvenience for an awesome phone! Thanks for the app suggestions though. Hopefully they will add that in a software update

    I use "Battery Lover". Free and shows percentage battery remaining as an active frame... I don't notice any crazy power drain with it running in the background either

    The OP asked for a way to show battery percentage in the top bar, not for battery apps or useless settings.

    Wallpaper Changer HD is currently the ONLY way to do this.

    So would anything else. It's BBRY's "fault" not the developer.

    In the somewhat near future, BBRY will unlock the API's that will allow a 3rd party app to run in the background without an Active Frame.
    The developer of Wallpaper Changer HD has already committed to incorporating this the very day it's made available to him.

    Oh okay, I see. Sorry, I misread your first post more as an accusation.
