Thinking that the appearance of the battery indicator on your Android phone is not good enough, you can try to use some third-party themes, or better, what would you say if I told you that you could turn the battery indicator into an illuminated circle around the phone’s selfie camera?
Say hello to the Energy Ring app that supports a huge number of Android smartphones and continues to support more, which means that if it doesn’t work with your phone at the moment, check it after a few days to see if it becomes on the list or not.
What is the idea of the Energy Ring app?
The idea of the Energy Ring app is very briefly to replace or change the shape of the battery indicator we are used to in the top status bar and turn it into an illuminated circular ring around the front camera. Noting that this carousel is trying to display the battery percentage in real-time.
For example, if the battery is 100%, you will notice that the illuminated ring around the selfie camera is complete, while it is half complete when the battery is 50%. Best of all, this ring remains on and on throughout the charging period, and there are many animations you can choose from that we will show you through the following explanation.
What is the list of smartphones officially supported by the Energy Ring app?
The free Energy Ring app supports many Android phones. It is possible that your phone is not on this list, but it fully supports the application. So, in all cases, we recommend that you try the app first, even if your phone’s name is not there.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 / Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 / Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 / Galaxy S10 / Galaxy S20 / Galaxy S20 FE / Galaxy S21 / Galaxy Note 20 / Galaxy Note 10 / Galaxy Z Flip 5G / Galaxy A60 / Galaxy A71 / Galaxy M40 / Galaxy M31s, and many other Samsung phones.
Google Pixel 4a / Google Pixel 5a / Google Pixel 6 / 6 Pro, and some other Google phones
OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 8T, OnePlus Nord, and some other OnePlus phones.
Plenty of other phones from Huawei, Honor, Motorola, Redmi, Realme, Oppo, Vivo, Poco, and many others; you can check your phone’s name from the official app page on Google Play.
As mentioned earlier, the absence of the name of your phone in the list does not necessarily mean that your phone is not supported. You should try the application yourself to make sure whether yes or no. If your phone’s screen has a punch hole for the front camera and not a notch, the energy ring 99% supports it.
Once the app is installed, a circle with bright colors will appear around the selfie camera that reflects the current battery percentage and indicator. At first, you’ll need to allow the app to appear over apps from Settings and give it the permissions it needs.
The app’s main interface is as shown in the previous image. It has several features, such as the Ring Thickness indicator to adjust the size of the illuminated circle and the Charging Animation to modify the animation system of the circle while charging. Not to mention that you can choose the shape of the colors and their pattern through Color Configuration.
Now, all you need to do is play with the options given in the app to customize the Ring around the camera to your own taste. The only downside is the ads that may distract you while setting up the free version, and some limitations to the free version as well.
