Check battery level

You can see how much battery your Android phone or tablet has left at any time. When your device is charging, you can see how long until your battery will be fully charged.

Check battery life and use

On your device, from any home screen or in many apps:

  1. With two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen. This opens your Quick Settings.
  2. At the top, see your current remaining battery percentage.
  3. For details, tap the Battery Battery. You’ll see:
    • How long until your battery dies
    • Graph of battery use since last full charge
    • List of apps that used battery since last full charge, and how much each used

Tip: You can also check your battery from your device’s Settings app Settings and then Battery.

Check how long until full charge

After you plug in your device, give it a moment to see how fast it’s charging. Then, on your device, from any home screen or in many apps:

  1. With two fingers, swipe down from the top of the screen. This opens your Quick Settings.
  2. At the top, tap the Battery Battery.
  3. At the top, you’ll see:
    • Battery percentage
    • How long until full charge
    • Charge source, like “over USB”
