Show battery percentage on Samsung Galaxy phones

Battery life is one of the things many people overlook when buying a smartphone. With increasing number of apps on smartphones coupled with HD displays, most of us struggle to get through for a day without charging our phones. While stock Android shows the remaining battery capacity in the status bar, it does not show the battery percentage. While this is possible through some programs like Battery Widget Reborn, Samsung’s Touchwiz skin already has this feature in it. It is just a matter of turning it on.

This is applicable for all Samsung Galaxy Android flagships like the Galaxy S5, S4, S3, Note 2, Note 3 and also for mid-range phones like the Galaxy Y, Galaxy Ace and Galaxy Grand.
