Turn the Samsung Galaxy S20 hole-punch into a battery indicator with Energy Ring

Turn the Samsung Galaxy S20 hole-punch into a battery indicator with Energy Ring

As manufacturers have tried to push the limits of bezel-less design, we’ve seen several “solutions” arise. Pop-up cameras and later notches were the first big trends, and they’ve both stuck around for a while. Another long-standing option is the hole-punch camera cutout. We’ve seen some clever methods for hiding the hole-punch, but we’ve also seen some manufacturers and developers of third-party apps use the cutout in creative ways. Energy Ring by XDA Recognized Developer jagan2 is a cool app that puts the hole-punch to use by turning the cutout into a battery indicator. The app was recently optimized for the Samsung Galaxy S20 series.

For those not familiar with Energy Ring, the idea is to utilize the space around the hole-punch rather than hide it. There are a lot of customizations at your fingertips, such as configuring the width of the ring, the direction of depletion, changing colors based on battery level, and more. There are a few extra features for paid users, but there is enough in store to keep free users satisfied. The developer says there is a very minimal effect on CPU and battery.
