    I use the Battery Notifier app. It will show the percentage on the top left of screen.

    The ICS leak allows you to display battery percentage without a 3rd party app.

    If you're rooted, there are many ROMs you can install (both gingerbread and ICS) with bat % built into notification, and then different themes for most ROMs that allow you to further customize look and feel of the UI in general, and specifically the color and type of bat% you have in the notification bar.

    If you're not rooted/have no interest in rooting your device, there are many bat% apps and widgets available on the play store.

    Check here:

    AT&T Galaxy Note I717 General - xda-developers

    Then here:

    AT&T Galaxy Note I717 Android Development - xda-developers

    Lastly, here:

    AT&T Galaxy Note I717 Themes and Apps - xda-developers

    Hope this helps.

    -Ryan

    If you are on v4 (ICS), go to Settings -> Display -> 'Display battery percentage' option to turn on/off the display on the screen top info bar.

    I used this leak as well, and root is not needed. It's so nice!

    If you don't have that option under settings, try Battery info. from the play store. works the same that's what I use on my Note.
