Check battery level

You can see how much battery your device has left. When your device is charging, you can see how long until your battery will be fully charged.

Note: Some of these steps work only on Android 8.0 and up. Learn how to check your Android version.

Check battery life & use

Your battery life estimate depends on how you use your phone. 

  1. Open your device's Settings app Settings app.
  2. Under "Battery," you’ll see how much battery life you have left.
  3. For details, tap Battery. You’ll see:
    • When the last full charge was
    • How much time you’ve spent using your device’s screen
    • A list of apps that have used battery and how much battery each app used
      Tip: The amount of battery used by each app might not add up to 100% due to rounding.

To see a graph of battery use since last full charge, tap the large Battery Battery.

Tip: To always see your battery percentage at the top of your screen, open your device’s Settings app Settings app, tap Battery, and turn on Battery percentage.

Check how long until full charge

After you plug in your device, give it a moment to see how fast it’s charging. Then:

  1. Open your device's Settings app Settings app.
  2. Under "Battery," you’ll see:
    • Current battery percentage
