Modify Android Device Status Bar: Battery Percentage, Network Indicator and More

Android OS is the best when it comes to allowing the user to customize the interface. There are basically two ways of doing this. Either as a user, you get superuser access or by using 3rd party applications from the Play Store. When we talk of superuser access we mean rooting the device. The process is not that simple for someone who is not prompt on technical grounds. No, I do not mean to offend but we get thousands of messages where people try to root their devices and end up bricking it.

So, the next alternative is to use third-party apps that make the customization a cakewalk. All you need to do is toggle a few settings on the app and in no time you will see your customization taking place. In this guide, we will try to modify the Android device status bar using a popular third party app. The process will involve no complex process like rooting the phone. It is super easy to customize the status bar of the Android device and we will tell you how to do that.

Basically, you get 4 options of status bar styling. These are options to choose from the Android 9.0 Pie style. Android 10, iOS and MIUI style status bar.

Colors

Color customization is available for premium users. You can set the background colors of your choice. By default, the background color is black and the accent color is white.

System Icons

Here is a long list of items that you can select to be shown in the status bar. It is present in the form of checkboxes. Simply tap on the checkbox beside the item to enable their presence on the status bar.

Item Order

This means you can rearrange how system icons are presented on the status bar. It means whether you want the clock to come to the left and the battery percentage to go right side.  This you can do by simply dragging and dropping the options. The only twist is this feature is for the Premium users.

Dual SIM Support

This means you can have the same customized status bar on any of the two SIM cards you use.

24-hour clock

It is just the simple feature that allows you to toggle between 12-hour clock format and the 24-hour clock format on your customized status bar.

This is how after customization, the status bar should look. I am following the Android 10 style along with customized battery level indicator.

Disclaimer

The custom status bar may not work when you have to use an App in landscape mode such as playing games. Personally, I could not use the in-game options present at the top of the screen when this app was active.
