If you are a lucky owner who has an Android phone/tablet that works on Marshmallow, you can enjoy so many new and user-friendly features offered by Google OS. When flirting with your device, you can easily discover new features other than making your device show battery percentage in the status bar by default. So, in today's post, we will show you how to display battery percentage on Marshmallow phone, no widgets or third-party apps needed.
