Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Just curious to find out if there was a way to show the battery level (%) on the main screen?
Thanks

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

here is an app BX Battery Info, when you open the app you can see the battery percentage, your best bet might be to get an app for battery that shows % on the application icon and put it on your first home screen thing.

Ta. Do you mean to say that there is no default way (embedded within OS) to show battery level (in %) like on iPhone etc?

 I do not believe so, I have not seen such a short cut.

 

BatteryGuru is probably the best battery app available.

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Well I think for iphone to show battery % you'd need to jailbreak but for Q10 I think you can definitely request the feature probably you can see it from the settings and then go into battery but that's not all fancy and shown on the device display

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Is anyone else not impressed with the battery life?  I just got a Q10 and with minimal use, the battery is virtually drained by the end of the day.  Do I have a bad battery?  This was supposed to be one of the big features, and I am not taking photos or video yet.

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

you just have to go to settings->about->category=hardware and then scroll to battery and the charge percentage is stated there

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Now you have to download an app for that.  But it fould be of course better to be able to see the battery percentage in the top bar all the time since these apps show % only in the tile.

Re: Blackberry Q10 Battery %

Agree.... From 7h AM to 11h pm, my battery drained from 100% to 30%. My old Torch usually used 20% for the same period.

And Yesterday i've got an update from Blackberry (10.1.0.1720). Then today, it drained 80% of the battery form 8h AM to 11h30 AM. Wow 80% in 3.5 hours

Many people complain about this update on forums.
