    Query:

    The battery meter is in 10% increments.

    Here's the question (and any proof you have to backup your answer), when the phone says 80%, does that mean it is 89%-80%, or 80%-71%, or 85%-76%?

    Thanks,

    Veht

    No proof, but rather an educated guess. Your last guess 76% - 85%

    80% is anything from 80-89%.

    False, it is actually 80%-71%, you can see this by clicking battery then looking at the chart of battery power.

    On the far left there is notches that show which 10% mark you are at.

    When it shows 90% it actually is marked at 90%.

    80% = 75% - 84%

    I use circle battery, and as soon as the meter from circle battery shifts from 85% to 84%, the 10% increment battery meter jumps from 90% to 80%. Simple rounding we learned in elementary school.
