When my android phone is off, it now glows 100% charged when it reaches full charge

    When my android phone is off, it now glows a small message saying "100% charged" when it reaches full charge. It never did that before and I've had it a couple of years.

    It doesn't make a good night light. Actually I don't want a night light at all. When I turn it off, I would prefer it be dark all night.

    How do I get my phone to NOT display that?

    Thanks,

    Ah, if it is doing this when it is off (as in really off, not just screen off) then it's not the Android OS that's doing it. Possibly a feature in the recovery module (I think that's where manufacturers usually put things like charging displays when off, though it's not obvious why it should be), certainly something in the firmware we don't normally interact with. I expect that a recent system update added this.

    I don't have the same model phone as you, so don't know for sure what settings you may have. But if there's nothing in battery or always on display settings to control this all I can suggest is the old-fashioned solutions of putting it face down (which may not be an option if you use wireless charging) or covering the screen!

    Hopefully someone else will have another idea.

    Thanks,

    My bad - it's screen off, not completely off. (Sleeping?)

    It's going to be face down until I figure it out. But if I need it in the middle of the night and I'm half-asleep, face down will take some getting used to ;)

    Check your lockscreen settings.

    For instance, I have my device set to not display any notifications on the lockscreen.

    Thanks. I can't find that.

    I have a Galaxy A6 (I've had it for a few years now)
    running Android 10

    I don't mind notifications on the lock screen.

    When the phone is idle and the screen is black, the battery notification pops up. So instead of a dark bedroom, as soon as the battery is charged

    It's only been doing it for a while now, so I suspect it's a feature of the latest update -- although I don't think it's been doing it since January 5.

    I may have found it in Display.

    There is a slide switch near:

    Show charging information
    Show battery level when the phone isn't in use.


    I slid the switch to the off position.

    I've turned that off and plugged it in to recharge. Time will tell.

    I'll let you know if it wakes my wife up in the middle of the night (I can sleep through anything)

    OK, it's fully charged, on the cable, with a black screen and there is no light of any kind showing.

    After 4 days of searching, I think my wife will sleep better, and I'm happy to help her do so.

    Thanks for your help, it led me to the right direction.

    Problem solved. "Thank You" to all that helped.

    My wife slept all night with the phone face up. Turning off the

    Show charging information
    Show battery level when the phone isn't in use.

    option solved the problem.
