It’s been a while since you have insisted on having this extra information displayed on the Home Screen of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. But now that you think about it, you haven’t remained without battery for quite some time. And it seems that you don’t need to check up on the battery percentage all the time… That’s why you’re thinking it’s a good idea to earn some extra free space, by giving up on this indicator altogether.
Let us remind you that it was super easy to enable this option and it’s going to be just as easy to disable it. The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus user interface is crowded enough as it is, so, you can make a change about that. Free up the Notification Bar and you’ll be able to fill it back in, as you activate the Bluetooth or the Location, set up a new alarm or do whatever else that will add a new symbol up there.
No kidding, we will just focus on showing you the steps to hide that battery percentage on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Pluis. Do not worry, you won’t be left in complete darkness, as you’ll still have the tiny battery symbol, but without the percentage. What you do with the free space that you earn is entirely your business…
So, you say that you cannot stand seeing the battery percentage on the cluttered Status Bar of Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus? We have a solution for you, easy to implement almost instantly!
Here’s how you too can hide battery percentage on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus:
- Choose the Notification Panel or the App Drawer (whatever) to open up the Settings;
- Next, find the Battery menu and tap on it, to expand your options;
- Look for the Percentage On Status Bar feature listed there;
- As you see it, you’ll also see that it has a toggle set to On – tap on it and it will switch to Off just like that.
By now, the battery percentage must have already disappeared from the Status Bar of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. The only context you’ll get to see it again from now on, unless you’ll manually reactivate it, will be if and when the Ultra Power Saving Mode will turn on.
