  1. My version of Pie (Samsung Galaxy S10) has the option hidden under Notifications > Status Bar > Show battery percentage. Hope that helps some that have versions that are different.

  2. Actually they’re right, in android 9.. the latest version, it doesn’t have that option under battery.. hence the reason I’m even on this website looking for a solution. I just got my phone back from Samsung today with the latest updates.. so yeah, this is outdated as far as android 9 goes. Thanks for the advice nonetheless.

    • Like I wrote, every phone manufacturer customizes Android system on their phones. Samsung does not use the vanilla version. Screenshots were taken on latest Android image downloaded straight from Google servers. The same that Google Pixel phones use.

  3. Instructions are incorrect for Pie. From the home screen pull down from the top. You will see the time, date, a search feature and the gear for settings. Pull down again and this time you will find three dots. Click on the three dots then click on status bar. Choose show battery percentage and you’re all set.

  4. My battery percentage only shows when I pull down the status bar. The options that this shows are not on my factory unlocked note 9.
