Default Best and most accurate battery percentage app

I've had 2 different one so far and my phone dies out before it even reaches %.

Default None. You shouldn’t NEED an app to check your battery level

You shouldn’t NEED an app to check your battery level. At least not on the HTC One X.

Try typing in *#*#4636#*#* or *#*#INFO#*#* into your dial pad (as though you were dialing a telephone number) and then select Battery Information and then check your Battery level.

No apps to download or take up space on your phone or cause issues. + you can check a ton of other things as well. Even the Battery Health! If your Battery Health says “poor” or “unknown error” then power cycle the phone (turn it off and on). If it still says “poor” or “unknown error” then your battery will most likely be going out or be defective.

And you should hope that doesn’t happen because you can’t pull the battery out of the One X either which isn’t very pleasant. Because if your battery goes out (which it will eventually, no battery lasts forever). You’ll have to replace the whole u
nit.

In any case enjoy the code, watch what apps you download, and don’t forget to look into some of the many additional secret codes for smartphones if you found that star code helpful.

I've used Battery Mix, which I loved because of the great graphs and useful info. But it prevents the installation of APK's, so I had to uninstall. I'm now using Team Battery Bar (Pro in my case, free also available). It is only a Notification Bar feature (no detailed battery usage available), I've found it to be accurate and configurable and useful. Mainly, I don't need to have my glasses on to be able to see the battery level at a glance (g).

Also, thanks to James for that interesting info on codes.

I find built in battery % in ssLauncher to be as accurate as any of them. Lower right:

Default Oh, I LOVE STAR CODES

No problem NQuateman.

Samsung is one of my favorite types of phones to run Android Star Codes on, there are just SO MANY! Try the *#7353# and tap Melody, it will start playing MUSIC! If you think your loud speakers busted and you run that code and it plays music then your speakers working fine. You can check all kinds of things if you know how to do it.

Sadly the New Android OS don’t seem to like star codes that much 4.0 and 4.1 don’t seem to work.

So use them while you can because they are probably going to be phased out very soon.

Thanks again and enjoy.
