    OCD problem on iPhone - battery indicator-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1417575223.202460.jpg

    Does anyone else keep the battery percentage off?

    It's kind of and OCD for me seeing the percentage go down as the day progresses. I've downloaded an app called 'vidget' to keep track of the percentage of the battery in my down down menu. Anyone else face the same problem I do, or is it too much??

    I check it constantly, almost obsessively, and watch it like a hawk through out the day

    It really makes me more annoyed if it's off. Then I'll keep guessing at it until I just turn it back on anyways.

    I keep telling myself to just use the phone until you get the 20% notification but I don't do that. Lol

    I keep the battery percentage on, but don’t worry too much about the amount of battery that I have left. I have never had a problem getting through the day since I got my iPhone 6 Plus. At this point, it’s more a matter of "I've always had it that way" and it feels strange not to see it. Much like the display for the cellular/LTE service strength as an actual number instead of the meaningless dots.

    I guess you all are right. I'll have to turn it back on so I know what my exact percentage is. Thanks lol

    What does the negative number next to your carrier mean??

    It's the dBm I think.

    Nope, I like the battery percent meter; wish there was an option to disable the battery icon though.

    I used to have the % showing, but since moving to the 6 Plus as my daily driver I turned it off... I am not concerned that my battery will die during the day

    When I have it on, I am constantly checking it and worry about how much is left. And when I have it off, I do not even think twice about how much battery I have left and never have a problem through my day with it.

    Its like when I have it on, I can swear the battery life depletes faster even though I know its all in my head, if that makes sense lol.

    The only thing that bothers me about my battery is how fast it drains. All of my phones, including my Pre3, only dropped down to about 85-95% after a full day's use. My Lumia would end the day at 97%

    I always use the percentage meter. When it gets low I plug in. No OCD there

    My iPhone battery indicator is always on. Since getting the iPhone 6, I find I don't need to monitor it as much as I did before.

    I keep it on but I have been getting amazing battery life with the 6, so I may turn it back off.

    Just have to say ... My opinion , as some one who has OCD as a child, and still do.. Take RX etc.. I strongly hate when people throw the term OCD around. if this was my biggest issue, I'd be thrilled .

    I have battery anxiety.

    Sometimes I turn on my phone just to see how much battery I have left.

    Its a problem.
