How to Get Battery Percentage on Android KitKat

You know that Google has unveiled Nexus 5 few days back with Android KitKat. Although there are several new features but the main attraction is Android KitKat. The Jelly Bean and ICS are much upgraded than previous Android versions where you can get the battery percentage to be shown or hidden.

That is however very easy to show or hide the battery percentage on Jelly Bean and ICS in the status bar of your Android. If you have bought Nexus 5 just now, you might are missing the percentage option on your phone. You don’t have to find it anymore since I would like to say that Android KitKat has no such option.

Sometime it is ok. We don’t check battery statistic since we know that Nexus has a better battery life that any other phones. But we often try to check the battery charge level so that it won’t too late to put our phone on charging. At this moment, you have to determine yourself that how much battery level is remaining. So, obviously, this is much difficult you have not much idea. On the other end, you cannot decide when to put your phone on charging after seeing only battery level.
