just upgraded to android 10, now have TINY battery icon..cant read percentage

2020-07-11, 0:06 AM

so, my motorola moto g7 with google fi just took the android 10 upgrade, and SEEMS to be performing beyond perfect...with ONE teeny, tiny little problem.

the status bar icons are TINY...I can deal with this, but for the one icon I NEED to be able to read being TINY.

the battery icon.

now, back when I got the phone last year(had android 9 at launch) I switched on the battery percentage toggle..cause I liked knowing how much of a charge I had left, and I could actually read the numbers in the icon.

now...the numbers are so TINY that even WITH my glasses, its a crapshoot as to whether my best guess is accurate.

isnt the point of a status icon supposed to be knowing your status at a glance? cause, swiping down to get font sizing I can actually read doesnt fit that bill.

is there a way to adjust this that doesnt throw the font/icon sizing of everything else into the blender, set to frappe?

Hi xraiderv17,

 

Thanks for the post. Not sure if I picture it out correctly, can you send a screenshot if it shows on safe mode?

 

To Enable Safe Mode
1. Press and hold the Power button until Power off comes up on the screen.
2. Touch and HOLD Power off on the screen until reboot to safe mode appears.
Just turn off and on the phone to boot back to normal mode.

 

Thanks.

 

Best regards,
Rich

I'm attaching two files, one is normal mode(eg phone's operating in standard mode, and the other is safe mode.

since the forums wont allow more than one attachment per post..this one's safe mode. next post is normal.

Hi xraiderv17,

 

Thanks for the screenshots. I checked this with my colleague. Unfortunately, you would have to go to the phone's settings to adjust the icon size (Setting>Display>Advanced>Display Size changing to a larger size will make the icons bigger).

This was a dumb move.  Yes, you can click on settings and go to the battery to check the level, but how nice it was to just glance at your phone and know how much battery life you have left.  Bring it back!
