Adds a configurable Energy Ring around the camera lens indicating current Battery level. Dive into the various configuration options, not only you can quickly glance and get the battery info but, Energy Ring adds an accent to your phone's camera lens.


Got a full charge? The Ring will be a 360 degree wrap around the front camera lens.
Battery depleting? So will the arc of Energy Ring.

Out of the box features:-

✓ Energy Ring can be configured from a width of 1 pixel to a donut thick ring
✓ Energy Ring puts almost 0% load on CPU, as it wakes up only to reflect any change in battery level
✓ Energy Ring's direction can be configured as clockwise/bidirectional/anti-clockwise
✓ Energy Ring can hide on fullscreen content (apps, videos, images, games etc)
✓ Energy Ring can be configured to change colors automatically depending on the live battery level
✓ Energy Ring could have a mono color/multiple color segments/gradient (pro)
✓ You can literally assign any color in the world for your favorite configuration
✓ Energy Ring has a number of cool animations whenever a power source is plugged into your device

All that is cool! But what about Energy Ring consuming Battery?!

This is one of the most exciting question for me to answer. Energy Ring more than anything understands that you need to utilize your battery efficiently (after all, that's why you installed the App, right? ;) .) Energy Ring sits on the screen silently putting almost 0% load on CPU, if battery level changes, Android wakes up Energy Ring. Once awake, Energy Ring quickly updates itself and goes back to sleep. And to be that extra efficient, the Ring goes on deep sleep when you turn off the screen, meaning it doesn't even read changes in battery level when the screen is off.

Notification Access requirement:
Energy Ring does not read any Notification whatsoever, it merely relies on it to be alive. Be assured that the App does NOT access anything.

Absolutely beautiful! Thank you for this, I was really looking forward to this!

Only one suggestion, if we could adjust the left-right alignment of the circle around the camera, that would be perfect. Right now I looks good, and is very functional, but the left edge of my circle runs a little under the camera notch.

Also, is there a way to show this on the AOD?

4.5 out of 5, would donate/purchase app to support developer.

Does it drain battery like that other app that lights for notifications.

Well, it doesn't display when your screen is off, so I don't think it is going to have any MAJOR drain on it.

If any, it will be negligible. It only updates when the battery level changes.

It doesn't even show as an app when I check battery specs. I see my AOD using 1%.

OP, is there the ability to get this working with the AOD enable? I'd love to know the battery level with lockscreen/aod using the notch notification.
Also, please see if you can add the ability to reposition the notch led. The reason for that, I see that the notch ring is literally a millipixel off to the right, so the right side appears more full then the left side.

Didn't work for me initially. For some reason I had to uninstall, reboot my phone, then reinstall.

Works pretty good, but as others had stated before, it needs slight adjustment.

Another thing I would like to mention: the pixels are very noticeable, especially around the curves. Is there any way to make the ring have a better resolution?

Seems like the left side curve (toward the center of the screen) isn't as thick as the right (toward the outside edge) on my phone. Amusingly in screenshot it looks perfect so I wonder if the pixels it's trying to display in that spot don't actually exist, like it's offset slightly from the actual camera cutout?

Was excited for this, but had to get rid of it. With it running, you lose the ability to answer Yes/No when Chrome asks if the site you are on can access your location.

    Hi.
    I have tried on my S10+. No thing happend. How can I get it run on the S10+ Please.
    Thanks

    Install the app, reboot your phone for good measure, open the app, at the top right corner, turn the slider to the right, this is the on position.
    It will take you to another screen where again, you need to slide the slider for the Energy Ring app to the right, this will allow the app to read that status of your phone so that it can update the battery level indicator.
    It will then take you to another screen where you once again, need to slide the slider to the right.
    This will give the application the ability to display the battery level over top of other apps.
    Press you back button a couple times, then adjust the settings to your liking.

    Enjoy :)
