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

    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:

    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.

    ~James~
