How to Enable Battery Percentage on ZTE Z557

ZTE Z557

The battery is the most important element of the smartphone. How long the device will work in offline mode without connecting it to an electrical network depends on it. The status bar, where the icon in the form of the battery, which is filling or depleting, located, allows you to monitor the charge level. Unfortunately, it does not allow determining the exact level. That is why it is recommended to enable battery percentage on ZTE Z557 with a help of one of the ways described below.

Through the notification bar

The ZTE Z557 phone, like any other device basing on Android 6 and higher, shows the charge level as an icon. With its help you can presume how approximately the battery charged: 100%, 75%, 50%, etc.

To let the system show the exact percentage of charge, you need to swipe down from the top of the screen. Then notification bar will open and information about the charge level will appear opposite of the battery icon.

Despite the fact that the phone will always be able to show the percentage, this way is not convenient. The user will have to lower the notification bar every time to see the exact charge. In this regard, it is recommended to pay attention on alternative methods of changing the icon so that the percentage is always displayed. Even in the case, when notification bar is closed.

Through the settings

The settings of ZTE Z557 allow making percentages of the battery always visible. If you never use this option, follow the instruction:

  1. Open the settings of your device.
  2. Go to the «Battery» section.
  3. Activate the slider located near the item «Remaining battery percentage».

This way works in the case if you have updated your ZTE Z557 to Android 9 and higher. If you use an old firmware, the algorithm will be different:

  1. Lower the notification bar.
  2. Tap on the settings icon and hold your finger on it in a few seconds.
  3. After about 5 seconds, you will be taken to the settings section, and the notification «System UI Tuner has been added to Settings» will appear below. It will give the signal that you unblocked the advanced options menu.
  4. Then you need to go to the «System UI Tuner».
  5. Choose the item «Status bar».
  6. Click on the function «Battery» and activate constant battery percentage for the status bar.

When using modified firmware names of some items might be different. However, it will not cause the problem of setting up showing percentages on a permanent basis. You just need to look for the sections «Battery» or «Accumulator» and if it is necessary, you can use the search of the settings.

Using the app

You can turn on battery charge percentages not only with built-in options of the phone but also with a help of special apps like «Battery percentage». You can easily find them in the Play Market. There are also many similar programs, which can do the same things.

To display the percentage, you need to run the app and tick the box responsible for showing the exact level of charge. The same algorithm works for all of the programs that is why it can be used regardless of which utility the owner of ZTE Z557 downloaded.

At the same time, it needs to be noticed, that the percentage will be shown separate from the battery icon. For many people it might seem unusual an inconvenient. Moreover, for showing the charge permanently, you need to allow third-party app to work in the background mode.
