Low Battery Indicator
When the battery is weak and only a few minutes of talk time remain, the battery icon blinks and the device sounds a warning tone at regular intervals. In this condition, your
phone conserves its remaining battery power, not by turning off the backlight, but by entering the dimming mode. For a quick check of your battery level, glance at the battery
charge indicator located in the upper-right corner of your devices display. Solid color indicates a full charge.
When the battery level becomes too low, the phone automatically turns off. You can also choose to display a percentage value. Having a percentage value on-screen can provide a better idea of the remaining charge on the battery.
- From the Home screen, tap Apps icon > Settings > Battery icon > Show battery percentage.
